Full description

Naperville's Historic District reveals its three haunted roads, each shrouded in eerie tales and real-life mysteries. From the legendary Chicago Avenue Mary, who crosses Ellsworth Street to visit the pond where her love met a tragic end, to Ladley's personal encounter with the Weeping Bride, this tour promises spine-tingling stories that blend history with the supernatural.

Sample Itinerary:

  • Start at Quigley's Irish Pub: The lingering spirits of a Victorian gentleman's game room just want you to join in their fun.
  • Repent at St. Peter & St. Paul Church: The legend of a ghostly priest still haunts sinners who dare venture into the basement.
  • A Haunted Widower: A husband’s love drove him to strange lengths to bring his wife back from the grave. In this case, the truth really is stranger than the fictional legend.
  • Visit downtown’s ill-fated train station: Restless spirits still roam the tracks where a terrible train collision took their lives.
  • Keep a vigil at North Central College’s Pond: Watch for the reappearance of the campus phantom, a star-crossed lover who returns to the scene of her lover’s demise.
  • Marvel at tales of the most haunted Pfeiffer Hall: Several ghosts are said to walk the boards of this college theater. Spooks include a lady in white, a musical professor, and an enigmatic specter nicknamed Charlie Yellow Boots.
