Happy Halloween Chicagoans!
Anyway, today I will channel Chip Coffey and talk about Chicago’s haunted places….booooo….eeeeek.
No, I will not make some lame joke about how it’s the ghosts of pounds lost or husbands tired souls. I will not. No, it’s haunted because it was the place where the bodies were taken after the Eastland disaster of 1915. The Eastland was a ship, that when docked, tipped over and killed 845 passengers. The boat tilted and many passengers were under the main deck and were trapped. Many others were killed by moving furniture. Yowch.
Well Margaret, of course Graceland Cemetery is haunted! But there is one grave in particular that is MORE haunted. And it is the grave of Inez Clark, a little girl who was struck by lightening. Inez’s grave has a glass case around it, not to protect the grave, but to keep the ghost of the little girl inside….whoooo…..eeeeeeee.
The Adobo Grill
The Adobo Grill, formerly The Great Steak Joynt, is supposedly one of the most haunted buildings in Chicago. There are many stories of waitresses being pulled down stairs and locked in rooms that were never “locked.” The owners of the building often brought creepy antiques into it, haunted antiques. So there’s your lesson, don’t buy haunted antiques.
Man lives in a sunlit world of what he believes to be reality, but….there is….unseen by most….a darkside.
