The Ghosts of Chicago by Adam Selzer

Please note, this date has changed from the 16th to the 23rd, due to TV filming at HR on the 16th. HR will be closed the entire day.

Published in 2013 by Chicago ghost tour personality, Adam Selzer. Book available at:   http://www.centuriesandsleuths.com/book/9780738736112

Behind the crumbling walls, under the ancient bricks and the nearly forgotten streetcar tracks, the ghosts of Chicago live on.

From Resurrection Mary and Al Capone to the Murder Castle of H. H. Holmes and the funeral train of Abraham Lincoln, the spine-tingling sights and sounds of Chicago's yesteryear are still with us . . . and so are its ghosts.

Seeking to find out what we really know about the ghastly past of this famously haunted metropolis, professional ghost hunter and historian Adam Selzer pieces together the truth behind Chicago's ghosts, and brings to light dozens of never-before-told firsthand accounts. Take a historical tour of the famous and not-so-famous haunts around town, from the Alley of Death and Mutilation to Satan's Mile and beyond. Sometimes the real story is far different from the urban legend--and most of the time it's even gorier.

    Chicago PD is also filming on our street (Keystone between Washington and Vine) tomorrow. They are using a neighbor's garage (not as a garage, but something else. This is the second time they are here.
