The most haunted house in Illinois gives tours.

A few months ago, I participated in a paranormal search of Veterans Memorial Hall in downtown Rockford with some local ghost hunters, Unfortunately, we didn't find anything.

If you're looking for a more successful outing, here's the place you should check out in Illinois.

According to,

"The McPike Mansion has been called one of the scariest structures in the United States, and it definitely ranks as the most haunted structure in Illinois. Originally built in 1869 by Henry Guest McPike, it is located in Alton, Illinois (a town with a haunted history in itself). It has repeatedly been the center of paranormal investigation. According to the owner, two ghosts haunt this property: former owner Paul Laichnger and a former domestic servant named Sarah Wells. Flashlights will die out unexpectedly and lights will flicker. There is the strong smell of lilac in the attic, which is the kind of perfume Wells used to wear. What is really creepy is how things look in photos. You might see figures or orbs of light in photos that were definitely NOT in the shot."
