Original Springs Hotel in Okawville, Illinois - - 3 Views
Just off the Illinois highways, and tucked away in the shadows of the cornfields of the downstate region, is the small town of Okawville. To travel its quiet streets today, one can barely imagine that this once was one of the most bustling little towns in southern Illinois. However, from the late 1800’s through the middle part of the Twentieth century, people came here from all over the country to take in the almost magical waters of the mineral spring that still exists beneath this town. During its heyday, a number of cheap hotels and health resorts existed here, offering healing baths to those who suffered from rheumatism, digestive ailments and all matter of illnesses, but today only one still remains.

Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois - - 2 Views
This small abandoned, unkempt cemetery in the southern suburb of Chicago is one of the most haunted cemeteries in the United States. Many different types of happenings have been reported here since the land was set aside as a cemetery. The name came to be because of the large number of single men living around the area in the past. No one has been buried here since the 1960’s, and has been neglected and abused much. The site is popular for various groups that are involved in voodoo practices and Satanism, which I’m sure does not help in the peace of the souls still wandering around.
