    Lots of sightings and stories about the ghost of a woman haunting the place. She is said to have died there in a fire. On one occasion a manager was taking the day's receipts upstairs to put in the safe when she encountered the ghost. The manager dropped the money and ran. When she came back later to retrieve the money, they found an intruder passed out on the floor from a drug overdose. The manager believes that the ghost was warning her of the intruder that meant to harm her and take the money.

    You have to hike back into the woods along a river to find this old site.

    At night, when the wind is still, you can hear children playing and the swings will be swinging. Sometimes a growl will be heard from out of nowhere. The story is, is that 2 children and an adult were murdered there. Be careful when going around the slide. That is where one of the kids were slaughtered. (the shadowlands)

    SC14 Haunted Woods on Church Rd near Cottage Grove

    Many sightings of a ghostly cat figure is said to be roaming those woods. My boyfriend's cat was killed in the woods mysteriously. There isn't any evidence of the death. it’s unexplained. Some think the creature called "Ames" killed the cat. Also you can hear a man calling for his dog at night and if you look out a window you can see a dog running from his owner. The dog will look at you and rumor has it if you chase the dog, the dog will disappear and reappear behind you and take you down by the neck. No one has been brave enough to do so.

    SC19 Old Towne Mall Janesville

    A local merchant was staying late one night to complete some work. He describes hearing the doors to back door of his business shake uncontrollably. When he went to investigate, the same thing happened to the front glass doors where he witnessed the doors shake, but could see right through them to find no one there. There has also been witnesses claiming doors opening in front of people to find no one in site. A student taking a late-night class in the lower level of the mall had left the classroom to use the bathroom. While he was in the stall, He looked through the crack of the stall to see the door to the bathroom open fully, stay open for about 1 minute, then close slowly. He stated he could see right out into the hallway, but no one was there! He describes the door as a heavy, wooden door with a clasp that has to be pushed in before the door can open.

    SC20 Rock County Theater UW-Janesville

    There have been the sound of doors opening and closing, lights going on or off, the sound of someone "whispering" in the theater. Witnesses have heard the doors open and people "talking" when no one was present. It is reported to be the spirit of a theater instructor by some, a director by others. (theshadowlands.net)

    Anyone who has been alone in the areas of the Auditorium and the classrooms behind the auditorium has had a strange feeling of not being alone. There is the feeling that someone, or something is there, watching you. Footsteps can be heard, and when in the auditorium, some have even heard the stage curtains open and close, though nobody was there to open or close them.

    Here are some maps that show what is left. Basically the NW corner of the state needs attention. There are also two haunts to visit on Washington Island in Door County. Index.

    If someone from MN or NW WI wants some nice fall riding, it might be good to cover some of these haunts.

    It is said that a man wearing a red flannel shirt was killed with an axe there. People that live in a nearby trailer court have reported seeing the ghost of the murdered man standing in their living rooms just watching them.

    In the 1930s a girl threw herself down and elevator shaft. Students report seeing her ghost, hearing voices, footsteps in the hallways, and computers turning themselves on. It is said that she doesn't like men. Some speculate she may have had a little assistance with her trip to the bottom of the elevator shaft.

    CV 05 Hellhounds of Meridean, Dunn County

    The ghost of a young girl haunts the island and boat landing where she committed suicide. Shortly after her death, three ferries mysteriously disappeared from this site. This shut down the ferry service. Several teens have drowned at this site. Their deaths have been listed as suicides.

    [​IMG]

    At one time there was a sanitarium on the island run by a doctor that had several dogs. The dogs, now hellhounds, haunt the area with their black phantom bodies and red glowing eyes. Some years ago, two youths parked at the landing were killed by some mysterious beast. The bodies were never found but the truck was spattered with blood and had hairs from some unknown creature.

    Word on the street is that it is best after midnight on overcast and moonless nights.
