Waukesha Ghost Walks
Suddenly during the evening every gas jet in the house was turned off, and a genuine bonafide ghost stalked through the rooms. He, she or it was enveloped in the proverbial winding sheet, surmounted by a death’s head and the grisly thing displayed the osseus structure of its fleshless arms in the most appalling and hideous manner… the revelers waited in awe till the monstrous thing harmlessly withdrew.
– November 2nd, 1889, The Waukesha Journal
A city of spiritualism, murder, curses, and exorcism. Even Mary Todd Lincoln stayed here while seeing a psychic medium whom she’d prayed would connect her with the soul of her assassinated husband. From its resort city history to the ghosts of modern day, see a side of Waukesha that you never knew existed.
