    CV 02, Caryville Cemetery, Dunn Co

    Caryville is said to be one of the most haunted towns in Wisconsin. The cemetery is part of that. Some that died on the island are buried here.

    This graveyard was featured on Unsolved Mysteries on television. The ghost of children have been observed running in a field next to the cemetery. Some reported the ghosts of children playing in the cemetery and that the ghost would approach and speak to them.

    A tall and dark figure has been reported in the cemetery - perhaps it is "Blackie", a demon reported at the boat landing and the nearby schoolhouse.

    The growling sounds of the hellhounds have also been heard. Ouija boards go out of control here. There is another neglected cemetery nearby in the woods. If you curse or spit on one of those graves a boxer (pugilist) will appear.

    CV 04 Caryville School, Dunn County

    A young boy haunts this school. He tried to escape an abusive father and took shelter in his school. In the morning the teacher came to the school house and found the boy's frozen body sitting at his desk. He died trying to keep warm in the school. If you sit in his desk you'll feel his spirit pass through your body. People also hear the piano in the school being played and see the keys moving when no one is there.

    CV 06 Phantom Cars, Dunn County

    This stretch of road in the haunted Caryville area experiences a lot of phantom car sightings. A teenage prom queen was intoxicated when she ran into the water with her car and was killed. The bridge involved is about where the car is seen in this picture. Now she haunts the area. If you stop at the bridge at night and you are brave enough to look down into the water you will see the car headlights beneath the surface. The phantom headlights drive the area roads playing chicken with drivers at night. Right before the headlights smash into you they seem to disappear.

    It is said that the minister was upset because of plans to sell the school across the street, the church, or both. He hung himself and the silhouette of his hanging body is sometimes visible in the belfry.

    CV 11 Elk Lake Dam, Dunn County

    A 25 year old girl was brutally murdered near here with multiple stab wounds. He body was dumped near here. The murder was never solved. Many believe the killer was a local resident.

    Over the years, there have been many ghost sightings from local citizens in and around the lake area that many believe are attributed to Mary.
    Most of these sightings involve seeing a young girl along the side of the road, near the bridge. Some have seen the full apparition, while others only report a shadowy figure that darts out of sight. In one incident, two fishermen on the bank of the lake reported seeing the glowing apparition of a young woman behind them. In another incident, a local elderly woman claimed to have daily conversations with a young woman who frequently showed up in her garden. This young woman appeared every day, in the same outfit (a pink sweater and capris), and identified herself simply as Mary. This incident happened in 1994, 20 years after Mary's death. The woman's daughter thought her mother was experiencing dementia until she attended a lecture and learned of the murder that occurred in the neighborhood. This elderly lady passed away in 1995, and its important to note that the clothes she saw Mary in were not the clothes she was found wearing when she passed away.

    CV 22 Vine St, Eau Claire

    Almost every night in the month of September around midnight you'll be driving and see a woman about 20 to 30 years in age jogging down the side walk, when you get almost right next to her she runs straight for your car like she wants you to hit her, and when you look back to see where she went she's gone. Some say based on her description she was a woman who was hit by a drunk driver on September 13 of 1986 while crossing vine.

    CV 10 Stones Throw Bar, Eau Claire

    Many people that have worked there reported strange goings on. People would hear footsteps when no one was there. Beer bottles would fly across the room and break. Doors would open and close when no one was there. One bartender was closing up after everyone had gone. As a joke he shouted "OJ, everybody out" as a joke knowing the place was empty. At that instant an apparition of a man appeared at one of the tables. He stood up, shook out his coat, and headed for the closed door where he disappeared. The bartender never returned to the building. It is one of the oldest buildings in town. A man hung himself there in the early 1900s.

    CV 07 Sheeley House, Chippewa Falls, Chippewa County

    This joint used to be a boarding house. Now it is a s'loom and a restaurant. People report hearing footsteps walking up and down the stairs in the building at night. There were roses painted on the wall. They tried several times to paint over them but the image would bleed through over and over again. One employee went to the freezer. When he entered some supernatural force locked him in and turned the lights out. The employee used an ice pick to work his way out after half an hour.

    CV 19 Cornell Library, Chippewa County

    Cornell is named for the founder of Cornell University. The university got 500,000 acres of Wisconsin forest land to use as a source of income to sustain the university. Most land grant universities sold off their land right away. Cornell hung on to it,d ealing with taxes and timber companies, until he could score big bucks later on. Cornell scored a $5M endowment out of the deal - the largest at the time.

    The city library building used to house a jail in the basement. Library employees and visitors report an eerie overwhelming "presence" when they go into the basement to use the rest room. Some library employees won't go downstairs.

    CV 18 Tainter Hall, Menomonie, Dunn County

    I couldn't get a picture due to some activity on the highway there so I borrowed one from these guys.

    Maintenance workers reported noises when students were away - footsteps and students talking in empty rooms. Doors would be locked and unlocked without explanation and windows would be opened and closed in the same fashion. One student reported that when she entered a TV room, the TV began to turn on and off and a piece of furniture slid across the floor and struck her. The kitchen personnel reported objects being moved and hidden and strange electrical anomalies with the radio. There have been several suicides in the building over the years.

The voice says "Help me mommy, I can't get out!"

    NW 15 Hammill House Spooner

    Frank Hammill is regarded as the father of Spooner. He arrived there in 1883 and served as publisher of a newspaper, mayor, and as a prominent politician. In 1922 he died suddenly of a mysterious stomach problem. His body was laid out for display in his house. His wife continued to live there after his death and often reported that she felt that Frank was still there with her. New owners have taken over in the following years, but each reports hearing noises, voices, and having a feeling that they were not alone in the house. The current residents feel sure that Frank is still there.
