Haunted Halloween: Chronicles of the Cursed

Haunted Sinkhole in Chicago?

Cursed Chicago

In honor of the halloween season, I am researching the local haunts and curses and sharing with the Chicagoland area.

So last post I revealed the news that there is a haunted sinkhole on Grand Ave. and promised that I would delve deeper and discover what is truly happening in River West.  There is only one word to describe my findings...truly frightening (ok that was two!).

This was kind of kept out of the mainstream news, which causes me to be more alarmed about the findings, as I'm  concerned what else is being hidden from the general public. However, a few kind souls reported their findings (see articles below).  And in the case of the missing teens, there was a video discovered at the sinkhole by one of the detectives.  This can be viewed at www.cursedchicago.com  Is the sinkhole actually to blame? Spine-chilling!

As each passing day unfolds more information, the Tribune wants to discover what is haunting their property.  Apparently the public has the opportunity to visit the sinkhole and excavate and tour this haunted pheonomenon to attempt to discover the root of this evil. 

Tours open this Friday, October 8th.  I am not going to pretend to be bravier than I really am - so I want others to visit as well and report their findings.  In the spirtit of hauntings and the halloween season, tell me about your best halloween costume in the comment area below and I will choose winners to receive free tour tickets to the HAUNTED SINKHOLE - CHRONICLES OF THE CURSED!

In honor of the halloween season, I am researching the local haunts and curses and sharing with the Chicagoland area.

Costume stores are popping up on every corner and the haunting season is upon us.  To prep us for this October, I have named the Top 5 Scariest spots in the city.  Some of these supernatural phenomenons are tales that have been passed down for years, while others are newly unearthed discoveries; however, each creepy to a different degree (in my humble opionon).  Drumroll.....and the winners are...

Chicago's Supernatural Phenomenons

Cursed Chicago

In honor of the halloween season, I am researching the local haunts and curses and sharing with the Chicagoland area.

It is known that about three million citizens inhabit the city of Chicago, but the number of spirits that lurk these streets of course, remains a mystery.

There are countless reports of well-known buildings in Chicago where manifestations of paranormal phenomenons have been witnessed. These range from city trademarks to local stomping grounds and residences; each with a unique haunted tale.

Halloween is just around the corner and in the spirit of the season, I have begun to research such haunts in the city.  I have quickly discovered there are a lot of areas that are supposedly cursed. 

Why does Chicago seem to be heavily saturated with such tales compared to the other metropolitan regions? Is it due to the fire of 1871 and the countless lives that were spared with unfinished business or perhaps the gratuitous violence of Al Capone, John Dillinger, and the numerous other gangsters that define Chicago's sadistic past?

In the next few weeks I will report on the strange findings of these paranormal hot spots and the supernatural wonders that define the city.
