    The legend goes that the pastor of the church, many years ago, was killed by a satanic cult and the cult then took over the church practicing satanic rituals. It is said the church is now abandoned and that you can still find black candles littering the church floors and window sills. (theshadowlands.net)

    Thanks, I kind of enjoy it myself. If you get in the right mindset, some of these can be kind of fun - especially when you are there in person. :D

    Couldn't get to the ruins.

    This link has some photos of the ruins and the story that goes with it.

    If a person was forced to choose what the greatest ghost story in Wisconsin might be, it would almost undoubtedly be the legend of Summerwind. This haunted mansion has spawned more strange tales and stories that any other location in the state. What dark secrets remain hidden in the ruins of this once grand estate? Were the stories of ghostly encounters and messages from beyond really true ... or were they part of an elaborate publicity hoax?

    Very strange feelings in the attic, always cold up there even in the summer. House is almost too calming when candles are lit, almost like someone hugging you from the inside. One night (The person who wrote this used to live there) there were coughing noises out in the hall, only would go away if you told them to, not out loud but in your mind. Saw people congregating in the living room very late one night. Found fingernail scratches underneath stairs after a psychic came over. When on computer in kitchen always heard someone coming in the room late at night. (the shadwolands.net)

    Nola was a little girl that died very young. Since she was the first to be buried there, the place is named after her. Her spirit, and others, are said to haunt the cemetery.

    If you look out on the lake late at night, you may see the apparition of an old fishing boat out in the middle of the lake. The man in the boat is calling for help. Shortly after you see him a mist surrounds him and he disappears.

    CV17 Ghost Dancer Osseo

    A young Native American resident died in a traffic accident where his vehicle plunged into a pond and he drowned. One account is that his shoe laces were tangled in the pedals and he couldn't get out of the car. There are reports of a daytime apparition of an Indian wearing traditional regalia dancing and performing a ritual at the scene of the accident. The apparition then vanishes.

    NE07 Concrete Park Phillips

    Fred Smith's Wisconsin Concrete Park - alongside a highway in Phillips- Hwy 13, a jumbled crowd of over two hundred folk art figurines clog the landscape. It's a park that is eternally crowded with revelers, spirits and beer bottles -- if not beer -- abound. The public is invited to wander through this impressive sculptural display. This display is an eerie and strange place. As you walk threw you will experience many different feelings there are areas that make your hair stand on end on hot calm days you feel cold blasts of air that will give you goose bumps During nights of full moon its said you will see dark shapes of what have been said to look like demons dancing around the park A son of German immigrants, Fred Smith was born in 1886, and spent his working life as a north woodsman. With two other men, he built the Rock Garden Tavern in 1936, which he ultimately managed after his retirement from lumber jacking in 1949. In 1950 this self-taught sculptor began crafting his unique entourage of cowboys, miners, Indians, and soldiers. Indian. His first masterpiece was inspired by the image of a large antlered deer leaping over a log that he had noticed on a boy's sweater. He used beer bottles from his tavern to decorate the life-size concrete horde, which mostly crowds the front of the park along Hwy. 13. He built the broad-shouldered, blocky characters starting with wooden frames wrapped with mink wire, or animal skeletons. (the shadowlands.net)

    NE08 Molly's Rock Rhinelander

    A ghost named Molly haunts the rock. WHhn people drove by, they would sometimes see a halo above the rock. If someone that had been drinking climbed up on the rock, Molly would scream at that person to get off and the person would get pushed off.

    The rock has since been destroyed by the county. If you pick up one of the pieces of the rock and carry it away the haunting will go with you.
