outside their headlights, when your vehicle "catches up to" the
entity it appears as a figure of a woman in a jogging outfit. She will jog down
the road in front of your vehicle for about fifty feet, before she turns to

their hoods while others say they have seen her head appear in their vehicles
and look at the driver before disappearing. Reports also say if you go down
this same length during the day vehicles(which are stopped) may not start up after
being shut down. And that she is trying to stop people so that her body may be
put to it's "proper rest". You could not mistake this pert of Jay
road, on the brightest sunny summer day it's cold, dark and always extremely
quiet. - February 2004 correction: The stop sign on the corner of Seven Bridges
and Jay Road appears to be bleeding. When you are far away the blood seems to
be dripping, but then as you approach the stop sign it disappears. If you step
out of your car and look at it, there is nothing there.

Cornell - Cornell City Library at 117N
3rd - The small city library in Cornell is a location that triggers unease in
most any one that enters it. As far as the history of the building, the
basement, where the restroom is, used to be a jail during the earlier duration
of Cornell's existace. The entire building has a heavy sort of a feeling to it,
but it is the basement in particular that makes all who step down there to
visit the restroom uneasy. Some librarians working there would not go down to
the basement to the restroom the entire time they worked there because of the
uncomfortable feeling that overwhelms visitors to the basement. The entire
basement area has had virtually no remodeling and is for lack of better
description "rugged". To my knowledge there has been no sightings of
any kind, just the feeling of an overbearing presence of some kind.

affair with the Dean. To accommodate this affair, the woman hanged her husband;
it was ruled a suicide, however. Since committing suicide is a mortal sin, the
acolyte was buried in a cornfield rather than the cemetery. On her deathbed,
the cheating wife confessed to her crime. The seminary wished to rightfully
bury the body, so they exhumed the casket only to find that it was empty. It is

Merrill - Scott Mansion - In the 1850's
white lumbermen were welcomed by the Indians and their chief. Some time later
his daughter Jenny, for whom the settlement was named for died. On how she died
is speculation. One account says she fell in love with one of the lumberman,
became pregnant and killed herself. Another is, she died during child birth.
Another is she died from flu brought by the white man. The chief buried her on
the hill, and cursed the ground that it would never do any white man any good.
The curse is the legend. Nine people died after T.B. Scott bought the land for
a home in 1884 and died unexpectedly in 1886 before the house was finished.
Within a year his wife Ann died. Their son Walter went to see the architect to
finish the house. He was stabbed to death by him. In 1893 it was sold to a man
named Kuechle. He lost all his money on a gold mine and mortgaged the house to
Tony Barsanti. Tony foreclosed and Kuechle went insane and died in an asylum. The

blue jeans. He has no shoes, or feet, just legs. He's totally bald and comes
out after 9:00 usually. If you're lucky, he might be walking on the playground
and he'll look up, then continue walking. One more thing - good luck finding
him and report back if you spot him!

them. The couple feared the people of Oshkosh. And never did move it. In fact
NO one has ever lived in the Paine Fine Art Center. Mr. Paine did pass on
first, and Mrs. Paine did out live him. She donated their house to the city,

Wauwatosa - Eschweiler Buildings -
These former TB sanitariums are located in the Milwaukee County Grounds and are
now used as labs for a small bioengineering firm. The largest of the buildings
is abandoned and is the site of many frightening sightings. Several people
walking through the park at dusk of later have reported feeling watched, the
hairs on the backs of their necks standing up. Looking into the large picture
window on the second floor, many have seen a woman in white staring down at
them. The sound of coughing can also frequently be heard--undoubtedly the
spirits of TB victims still coughing up blood and mucus.
Wauwatosa - Potter's Field - A mass of
unmarked graves can be found in the Milwaukee County Grounds next to the soccer
field. These graves belonged to the victims of TB and the residents of the
"poor farm" the county ran in the twenties and thirties (possibly
earlier). This site is a hot bed for restless spirits, which can be felt as
well as seen. Many people have on several occasions seen figures, including
children, slowly walking through the fenced off cemetery at odd hours of the

sliding across the floor slamming into the walls and each other.

In the old Holy Angels building which is now an apartment complex there has
been footsteps heard walking around in the upstairs of one of the apartments

to pull the hammer back to ding the bell it is very hard to do it manually.

October 2004 update: The local legend behind that is one of a Goatman. Yes a
goatman. Legend has it that back in the 60's or 70's maybe even earlier that
there used to be a "makeout" couch located halfway down the rd. While
late one night after high school prom a young couple was down there and the
goatman killed them and the couch was covered with thier remains. Also a myth
with the road is you can travel it one was and it will be so many miles long
you can turn aroung go back to the other end and the length of the road will be
dramatically different As legend has it.

story, 3 wing sanitarium that has been abandoned since the 50's. Very large

people living next to it. It is reported that you can see people staring at you

years ago. A student, was walking with her hands full when two doors, that
require a key to unlock, opened by themselves. When she passed through the

Wild Rose - Tuttle Lake - It has been
told that before the property became a campsite for children and teenagers for
summer vacations, the lot was owned by a farmer and his wife. It is known that
went crazy when he found out that the
wife was pregnant, so he drowned her in the lake, and the farmer was never seen
again. Recently, two counselors from the campsite went to check on a missing
camper out in the woods at night, and ran into what was an extremely bright
light where they describe that they "couldn't see a thing." They said
they had no choice, but to turn around because the light was blinding, and as
they turned around they saw a woman run away from them. The counselors start
running in a different direction...a direction that lead to the only tent on
the campsite, but when they started running for the tent, they realized they
couldn't find it. So, they both turned around to look and see where exactly
they were when they noticed that the tent was in fact right behind them...the
weird thing about this is, is that in order to end up in front of the tent, you
have to cross a road, which the counselors themselves told me they "Never,
ever crossed." One counselor said "We were running and running as
fast as we could, and then we found ourselves in front of the tent which is
impossible unless you cross the road...which we did not." Strange indeed,
and it has been told that investigators had found the pregnant farmer's wife in
the lake, and buried her underneath the campground. Still today, the lady
remains underneath the site in body, but in soul she remains on earth. Watch
out carefully for her as you visit this site.
Wisconsin Dells - The Showboat Saloon -
The area directly above the bar upstairs is haunted by a past resident, who is
believed to be named Molly. She opens and closes doors and plays with
appliances while people are cooking in the upstairs kitchen. However, she does
not seem threatening. The bar area has seen much supernatural activity too.
Human forms in turn of the century clothing have materialized in mirrors,
sometimes appearing to be walking along the bar toward the exit door. A strange
voice has even been heard numerous times near the stage area. In the cellar,
unusual cold spots are apparent, as well as kegs of beer being moved around.
Employees have been known to experience feelings of nausea while in the cellar,
as well as sudden anxiety. All of these events seem to take place sometime
after 3:00 AM.

Downstairs in the Shanghai room. In the 1950's this room was used as a bar in
which individuals would laugh, drink, and gamble. A female bartender was

and the smell of blood is evident within 20 feet of this room. The room is
