Haunting - Lehmann Mansion
The Lehmann Mansion (Lake Villa) was built by Edward Lehmann in the late 1800s. The Lehmanns ran a successful store, but the stress of running the businesses made Mr. Lehmann have a nervous breakdown. He was committed to an asylum. His wife managed the home and eventually the Village of Lake Villa acquired it and uses it to rent out for weddings. Next to the home are abandoned train cars and cooking ovens and an abandoned shed. The place is said to be haunted and full body apparitions are said to be seen inside the mansion. Again this place was visited while on a tour provided by Ursula Bielski.
