Wisconsin Ghost Stories


In honor of Halloween, here are a handful of Wisconsin ghost stories that we've reported in Odd Wisconsin.

There's the horrible case of Monsieur Nadeau, hounded to death in 1830 by the ghost of the woman he had murdered (or perhaps by his conscience).

The Hille farm in Waukesha Co. was haunted after a family tragedy in 1918.

At the reburial of its founder, Nashotah Theological Seminary was reportedly surrounded by ghosts, some whom were caught on camera.

Most towns had an abandoned home or two which residents thought was haunted, like this one in Juneau.

Poor Martin Rowney was thought to have been spirited away by ghosts near Portage in 1838.

The Ridgeway ghost is perhaps the most famous in the state, producing so many stories that it was chronicled in this pamphlet.

For more strange and bizarre tales from Wisconsin, pick up a copy of Odd Wisconsin, the book version of the best stories that have appeared here.

And keep your wits about you this weekend...
