You walk on the outdoor asphalt path and you notice the Stations of The Cross are on both sides of the path. This is your entryway to the cemetery area known also as Monk's Castle. The Cemetery is located on the edge of the road that I have named - The Stretch of Death.

There are one or two other locations included that are not mentioned above.

All my 58 plus years I have lived in this haunted  area that is a portion of what I have called Chicago Paranormal Triangle. 10 minutes from Willow Springs and that was the city at the age of 16, that I received my first driving ticket in.

I personally know the locations on the Chicago Ghost Tours free App as I have explored and experienced them often during the past 42 years that I have been driving.

I only have to travel five minutes and I am in Resurrection Cemetery. A few of the locations I have often held my Paranormal Nights events at. The locations on the tour are basically in my backyard.

The Haunted Willowbrook Ballroom has burned down, the brick walls are still standing at the time this is being written. The thing about it is, it burned down on October 28th, 2016. This being two days before October 31st and less than three weeks after a paranormal gathering was held there also in October.

Details of the Willowbrook Ballroom fire and information about Resurrection Mary can be found on the Chicago Tribune Site here.

I created the name 'The Stretch of Death' for the portion of Archer Avenue that runs from Fairmont Hills Cemetery to Saint James Cemetery. Sadly even last year, the name I have given it, has lived up to that name. There have been those who have died this year driving on it. You will see the Road Side Memorials on the north side of the road and they are adding up.

It is an area that even a Chicago ghost tour bus went up in flames and burned to the ground. If the fire would of happened five minutes earlier it would of captured all that were in that tour bus. I personally know that this is true and happened.

  • Me and few of my friends had visited this place some time ago. Because we didn't got any personal guide with us we used the Ghost Tour app recommended by you but after we made it till Chet's Melody Lounge the app suddenly stopped working (it freezed then comes white screen and automatically closes itself) luckily we made it out are now are all safe.
