    Waypoint EC11 The American Club Kohler

    The American Club is a luxury spa and resort. It started out in 1918 as a place to house the Kohler Company's immigrant workers.

    [​IMG]

    Walking through the back halls of the hotel a witness came across a gentleman standing there in a rather dirty flannel shirt and torn and faded corduroy pants. Thinking It was odd to see man in such attire at the American Club was really quite strange. They shrugged it off thinking he was a guest enjoying a cigar in the lower level. Bidding him a "good evening" , He was just staring there blankly at the wall with his right leg bent against the wall behind him and both hands thrust into his pockets. He just stared so blankly at the floor as though he didn't just see the witness greeting him. Well to get back to the office ,they had to pass him . After they passed him they got a really uneasy feeling... turned around and he was gone. Feeling a little stirred, they called security . And on the playback camera. On the tape it showed the witness wave and talk to someone that wasn't there.

    Three workers have reported hearing people walking around and things dropping. Workers usually refuse to work by themselves. The third floor is especially creepy and not to mention extremely cold at all times.

    [​IMG]

    One day three workers were waiting for laundry to get done. While the three were sitting in the basement an old mirror that sits on the wall dropped. None of the workers were near it as it shattered into hundreds of pieces.

    Waypoint EC20 St Mary's Spring Seminary Fond du Lac

    It is said that this seminary is haunted by a former nun and her baby. When she delivered a still born baby in the elevator she killed herself with her cross. And to this day you can sometimes hear her baby crying through the seminary at dark.

    [​IMG]

    The place was recently razed. There are new living quarters just up the road.

    Waypoint EC23 Retlaw Theater Fond du Lac

    The Retlaw ("Walter" spelled backward) Theater was originally owned and operated by Wally Schroeder. It is now believed to be hanted by Wally and the actors who performed there.

    [​IMG]

    Many of the workers and volunteers have reported footsteps on the stage when no one was there. Seats would creak and move on their own. Applause could be heard at night. Figures have been seen off stage and in the basement storage area. The hinged door on the stage floor would be left closed at night but found open in the morning.

    St. Coletta's is a campus of buildings and dorms that served people with disabilities.

    [​IMG]

    Serra Hall is said to be haunted. There have been occurences where someone is heard walking up and down the hallway of the second floor despite everyone being in their rooms at the time.

    [​IMG]

    Staff working on the first floor would sometimes have to repeatedly call the second floor staff to let them know the spirit turned on the showers again.

    The Kennedy's had one of their children stashed here after a lobotomy went bad. Rosemary Kennedy was kept here for long term care. She had a dog and a car that could be used to take her for rides.

    At the time, relatively few lobotomies had been performed; James W. Watts, who carried out the procedure with Walter Freeman, described what happened:
    "We went through the top of the head, I think she was awake. She had a mild tranquilizer. I made a surgical incision in the brain through the skull. It was near the front. It was on both sides. We just made a small incision, no more than an inch." The instrument Dr. Watts used looked like a butter knife. He swung it up and down to cut brain tissue. "We put an instrument inside," he said. As Dr. Watts cut, Dr. Freeman put questions to Rosemary. For example, he asked her to recite the Lord's Prayer or sing "God Bless America" or count backwards. ... "We made an estimate on how far to cut based on how she responded." ... When she began to become incoherent, they stopped.

    People have reported an eerie presence.

    [​IMG]

    They have heard inhuman screams, seen short and robed shapes in the woods, and have even seen a decapitated raccoon with blood glistening in the headlights but none on the road itself.

    [​IMG]

    Advice is to stay out of the woods on the left hand side.

    Residents report hearing people running in the hallways but when they look no one is there. A bathroom stall door will slam at night when no one is in the room. People report hearing laughing and talking in the hallway when no one is there. During homecoming week, a ghostly figure is sometimes seen in the building.

    The place is said to be haunted by a librarian that died here years ago.

    [​IMG]

    A student was walking with her hands full when two doors, that require a key to unlock, opened by themselves. When she passed through the doors, the elevator doors were also being held open by an unseen person.

    The story is that in rooms 145-148 two ghostly figures of old teachers are sometimes seen. It is said that they died when the school caught fire in the 60's.

    [​IMG]

    The story continues that if you are sitting in one of the desks, one of the ghostly women will walk past you and give you an evil look. You’ll feel very disoriented and uncomfortable. If you look at the chalkboard you'll see that the names of all the children these two punished written there. You can't erase them.

    [​IMG]

    If you were to sit in the auditorium you will hear the curtains open slightly and then fall to the floor.

    Dark figures are seen moving about the cemetery along with orbs of light darting between grave stones. Noises are also heard. Often the figures are those of civil war era soldiers. Visitors have the sensation of being followed or watched.

    [​IMG]

    One grave structure is said to hold the remains of a family's children that died of disease.

    [​IMG]

    It is said that if you sit on the roof of this structure, the ghost of one of the children will violently shove you off.

    [​IMG]

    There is a story about an indian chief being seen haunting the graveyard. The story is that Chief Hanageh (usually called Chief Highknocker because he wore a tall stovepipe hat) drowned in a local river in 1911. He is said to be buried along the bank so the haunting of the graveyard doesn't connect.

    Waypoint CW21 Witch Road Rosendale

    This road is said to be very dark and very cold in certain spots. There is an old run down house along the road where a witch is said to have lived in the past.

    [​IMG]

    People report seeing lights flashing from the end of the road, white lights appearing in the trees, and what looks like a little girl peeking her head out from behind various trees.

    [​IMG]

    Somewhere along this road is a tree that is said to look exactly like a witch.

    Heaven City will be hosting a paranormal investigations group on Al Capone's birthday (Jan 17th). Al is said to have been a patron there. One of the oldest rubber trees in the country is at Heaven City and it is said to be a gift from Big Al himself.

    I haven't read the whole thread, but has Milton College been mentioned? Those old campus buildings are spooky, there's got to be ghost stories there.

    No, but I checked them out when I rode down to photograph the high school. Some beautiful old buildings there and they certainly could look spooky. I think some of them have been repurposed. I hate to see elegant old buildings like some of those go to waste. I think it is part of a historic district now.
