On Saturday May 24th, 2014 at 11:30 am, join me and others at a very unique and one of a kind location. I call the Joliet Iron Works a location that is a type of Ghost Town in the Chicago land area. It is free, wear your walking shoes as it is huge and bring your cameras, water etc.

So what is a Ghost Town? A ghost town is an abandoned village, town or city, usually one which contains substantial visible remains. That comes from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. That is why I say the Joliet Iron Works is like a Ghost Town in a way.

It is a hidden Chicago paranormal location to explore and experience. It could be called the Chicago land areas only Ghost Town type of location. The Joliet Iron Works employed some 2,000 workers when production reached its peak at the turn of the century and now just the remains stand.

It is a free public place to explore and experience.

Visitors who travel along a walking trail will be able to see the remains of the coke ovens, the tunnels that spewed extremely hot air into the blast furnaces, a skull house with ancient Roman like arches and limestone trestles that supported the railroad cars that were used to ship the molten iron.

Also to be viewed are the rock-hard piles of slag, pieces of iron ore and coal and some of the other raw materials and byproducts of the iron and steel production process also can be found on the site.

It can be found at the intersection of Columbia Street and Scott Street in Joliet. Also can be found on Google Maps at: Joliet Iron Works Historic Site, Columbia St, Joliet, IL 60432 (intersection of N. Scott Street and Columbia St). I looked at it by way of the Earth View.

The area in the past has showed the possibility of paranormal activity with the tools paranormal investigators had with them, including some EVPs. Being a Spirit Feeler and a Psychic Medium, I have in the past when there picked up on the energy of spirits that have died there and emotions left behind.

On Saturday May 24th, 2014 at 11:30 am I will be going out there to explore and experience the location again and see if I can pick up on any spirits being present. Also coming out is the paranormal investigation team that I call a top of the line paranormal investigation teams in the Chicago land area as I have seen them in action many times, they are Extreme Vision Paranormal.

Also Dale Kaczmarek who is president of the longest running established Chicago area paranormal investigation team Ghost Research Society and now the longest running Chicago Ghost Tour - Excursions Into The Unknown - Haunted Chicagoland Tours said he will be coming out this day.

Saturday May 24th, is a special day for this, as the individual coming out to join us on this date is Joliet resident and owner of the haunted Slated Lady,  Mr. Charley Palmer as this date is the day before his brother died, and his brother was an Iron Worker.

There will be an attempt of Spirit Communication with Charley Palmer's brother at the Iron Works using a device called the Echovox and I have been using with great success for over a year now. Since others have died during the years that the Iron Works was in operation, there may be other spirits that decide to communicate on this afternoon day.

The general public is invited to come out (just ask where I am at), along with other paranormal investigation teams, as it is a free public place to explore and experience.

So come on out, no registrations, no signups as it is a free public place to explore and experience, so do so on the 24th of May 2014.
