How to Make the Most of Haunting Illinois

Haunting Illinois by Michael KleenReleased by Thunder Bay Press on July 15th, the 3rd edition of Haunting Illinois: A Tourist’s Guide to the Weird & Wild Places of the Prairie State by Michael Kleen is a wonderful guide to haunted and mysterious places in Illinois. The book contains a listing of 260 places throughout the Prairie State. If used correctly, Haunting Illinois is an invaluable resource for any legend tripper, whether you want to plan an excursion across the state or just want to find out what lurks in your own backyard.

Haunting Illinois divides the state into eight distinct regions. Each region is further divided by county, and finally by city, township, or neighborhood, depending on where the entry is located. This makes every entry very easy to find. If you don’t know what city it is located in, but you know the county, it is easy to just flip to that county (they are listed in alphabetical order) and find the place you are looking for. If you don’t know what county it is located in, but you know the general area (central Illinois, for example), you can simply turn to that section and start your search.

Each page is packed full of useful information. Check out the infograph below to learn all the elements of the guide, starting with the county information and ending at an entry. Not every page will look like this – some entries are longer than others and not all of them feature pictures. Now get off your couch and start exploring!
