Paranormal Illinois

Why did hundreds of people line up bumper to bumper in rural Illinois to catch a glimpse of a scantily clad phantom along Kennedy Hill Road?

When these questions and more are answered, you will never look at the history of Illinois the same way. From Airtight Bridge to Western Illinois University, Paranormal Illinois discusses several locations that have never been written about before, while shedding light on others that have previously gone without much elaboration.
