The Mysterious Loretto Staircase


Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum

Without giving too much away, I'll tell you a little bit about my visit to Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum.  The museum is said to have 30 rooms.  The tour (which includes a tour guide) is about 1 hour and 15 minutes.  The haunted basement where occult rituals have taken place is off limits.  The rooms are very small.  I went at night for one of the last tours.  The tour included about six people and a tour guide.  Most of the tour guides were wearing crosses for protection.  I suppose I fit right in with my purse and its Celtic cross.

You are not allowed to take pictures inside the tour but you are allowed to take pictures outside and in the lobby.  I took a couple but they were very dark.

The lobby had the "old building smell" with some sort of herbal aroma that smelled like possibly evergreen or similar aroma.  If you go on this tour, I will warn you to be prepared for surprises and that is all I will say.

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.

Haunting - The Gate

The Gate Haunting (Libertyville) is said to be the location that a gruesome mass murder at a Girl's Prep school, took place.  The history of this place seems to have been deliberately erased.  It is off River Road near Independence Grove Forest Preserve.  Here are some pictures from the Gate (again taken during a tour provided by Ursula Bielski).

Haunted Mineola Hotel

The Mineola Hotel (Fox Lake) was built in 1888.  The hotel was a reported gangster hide out with visits from Al Capone.  It is now condemned and the current owner is looking for a buyer to renovate the place. It is said to be haunted.  I visited the place while on a haunted tour provided by Ursula Bielski.  She used a Ghost box and did receive some verbal answers via it when asking questions. The most interesting ghost response was when I was asking about the gangster history.  A male voice came through and said,

"Get going, buddy."

Here are some pictures from the old hotel:

The Lost Video of UFO Abductee Betty Hill

I found this series on Youtube and found it to be quite interesting.  Apparently, Betty Hill was able to photograph more UFO craft landings after her one and only abduction.  Here it is:
