Spooky Places in Illinois
Whether you believe you’ve seen a ghost or not, most of us have at least heard a good ghost story. Sometimes there’s just something about a place and its history that intrigues us, and maybe creeps us out a bit. In honor of Halloween this weekend, The 21st wanted to take a look at some of those places in Illinois, like the DeSoto House Hotel in Galena, IL and the George Stickney House in Bully Valley.
