    "This bar/restaurant is located in a resort lake area and is know to be haunted. Long time residents have been telling us about ghostly happenings since we bought this establishment seven years ago. We ourselves have witnessed apparitions and poltergeist-like activities with customers present--margarita glasses flying horizontally off a glass rack before crashing to the floor, beer tapers all turning on at once with no one nearby, blender turning on by itself and then off by itself just as the bartender is reaching to turn it off, bell in the kitchen ringing while no one is in the kitchen, footsteps heard to the upstairs followed by an apparition of a previous regular who is no longer living, etc."

    "This establishment was erected in the 1920's and was a known Speakeasy and place for the Chicago "bosses" to wait while barrels of whiskey were hauled by horse and wagon from their still to Highway 164 at the top of the hill for shipment to Chicago. These walls do talk! The goings-on seem playful in nature but still frightening especially if one is spending the night here alone."

    In the mid 70`s Wauwatosa West High school was being rebuilt on a new location. The school was more than 90 % finished, when two teenagers were messing around on the roof, while drinking, and lit the school on fire. The entire school burned down. It was reported that an immigrant worker by the name of Hans from a European country, was in the now theatre working. Hans perished in the blaze. He never worked in shoes, and is said to haunt the theatre and he always has no shoes on.

    It is most dangerous to be in the theatre without shoes on. On numerous occasions while faculty has been working in the stage, lights have gone off, stage doors slamming, guest seats creaking, and stage props disappearing.

    A tall column of darkness has been seen to follow individuals around in the theatre. Strange occurrences reported also, especially at night or when the lights have been turned out.

    Apparitions have been sighted. Clocks stop without explanation. Water fountains spray water onto the floor. Doors in classrooms and libraries swing open.

    A little girl about 8 years old that died of a heart attack in one of the rest rooms in 1991. A 12 year old drowned in freezing water in 2001, and a 10 year old boy was killed by a car after chasing a ball into the street. People claim to have seen apparitions of these children.

    A woman wearing a flowing white glowing gown is holding what appears to be an infant child. She paces back and forth by the woods near the waterfall. You can see her perfect in the parking area.

    [​IMG]

    If she sees you she will walk toward you and if feels like you are being pushed away.

    [​IMG]

    She appears around 11 and if you are really quiet you sometimes can hear sounds of the infant crying.

    At least six different spirits have been witnessed repeatedly -a poltergeist, a signing nun, the mother superior, a janitor, strangely-laughing children and an malevolent presence have all been reported.

    It sounds like the whole state of Wisconsin is haunted. I really enjoy this thread and check it everyday. Have you ever seen any apparitions in your wanderings to these locations?

    Many incidents reported in the North Tower.

    On the G2 level objects are known to move on their own. There is a mysterious squeaking coming through the concrete floors.

    This school is said to have many haunted places including the girls restroom where a young girl dressed in an olden day school uniform is seen.


    [​IMG]

    One girl reported that when she was alone in the building after volleyball pratice she heard people's voices coming from the gym. When she went to investigate no one was there. There are also reports of phantom drafts and reported noises from the upper gym when no one is there.

    The school building used to be the church. Rumor has it that a boy fell to his death from the balcony. The balcony has since been walled over and converted to a room.

    [​IMG]

    Former teachers and students at the school attest to a strange feeling in the former balcony area. There is also a rocking chair in the attic that keeps rocking with no one around and no breeze. A strange man has been seen by staff and children in the church basement.

    [​IMG]

    Neighbors report that a former building on the site had a light that never went out even when the electricity was cut. Teachers also report feeling uneasy in the basement restroom and hearing a strange “wooooooing” sound.

    If you walk the paths here during a full moon you will see different colors of light dancing around the woods. As you go deeper into the woods, you will hear laughter and screams.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some people report hearing footsteps in the forest coming toward them along with the sounds of heavy breathing. If you let the footsteps approach close to you, you will be overwhelmed by an uneasy feeling.

    [​IMG]

    It is also said that if you stand on one of the bridges that the apparition of a person will appear right in front of you.

    A man is sometimes seen walking on the lawn of the school. He has a black book bag. If the man hears a car pass by, he stops and looks to the side or down at the ground. The man has no shoes or feet - just legs.

    Cardinal Stritch dorms used to be a place where nuns would live. In the basement of Stritch they used to keep the sickly nuns that would eventually die. Sometime after dark you can hear the nun walking around the hallways.

    [​IMG]

    Also in some of the rooms on 3 Center spirits will tear posters off the wall, closets will open on their own, locked doors will swing open, and random objects will be pushed off desks onto the floor.

    [​IMG]

    On 2 west you can hear running up and down the hall. As soon as you open your door to see who it is the running will stop. When you close your door the running will startup again.

    Three security guards on second shift noticed a small dark figure dancing on the second floor. When they arrived at the site, no one was around. All the doors were locked and all the exits were within the guards' view as they went to the area of the sighting.

    [​IMG]

    According to this site . . .

    The original and only family that occupied the apartment was the Miltons. The Miltons mainly kept to themselves, and according to locals, the family was rarely seen on the streets of Milwaukee. Occasionally, there would be an outburst or scream that came from the apartment; sometimes a series of arguments that would continually worsen. The fights were overheard by the workers on the floor, but nothing was ever investigated.

    In the afternoon on Monday, October 3, 1943, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Mr. Milton arrived at his home intoxicated; he had lost his job, and was quite upset. An argument ensued with his wife--soon the children arrived home, and the argument worsened. The drunken father threatened his family with a loaded shotgun, which he accidentally discharged at one of the children. In an attempt to cover his gross mistake, the father decided to shoot and kill each member of his entire family of six. Mr. Milton then killed himself.

    Years passed, and stories of the murderous scene flew through the streets of the South Side. Strange incidents were taking place in the upstairs of the building, just yards from the murder scene. Miscellaneous items from the offices were found in the vacant apartment. Nobody confessed. Pieces of furniture--chairs, desks, bureaus, would move all by themselves. Pictures on the walls would go crooked daily. Nobody could explain it. Finally an apparition specialist investigated the building. He agreed that there was indeed a “ghostly presence”. After talking with the specialist, the occupants soon moved out.

    September, 1983, Mars Distributing Incorporated purchased the building and moved in. The upstairs was left mainly untouched. Furniture from the past occupants was left behind due to their rush to leave. The upstairs was still inhabited by the dead Milton family. After further exploration, it was found that rooms were nailed shut, hallways were put in the middle of nowhere, and windows would open to blank walls. Various attempts were made to remodel the upstairs of the building to lease out as apartments. These attempts were dramatically slowed when days of work had been destroyed by unknown forces. Experienced workers got injuries for no reason. Eventually Mars decided just to use the space for storage.

    A girl committed suicide in one of the dorm rooms. Residents who lived in the room afterwards reported poltergeist activity: sounds, flying objects, and writing on the fogged-up window.

    [​IMG]

    It is said that a priest performed some kind of exorcism, and the activity ceased.
