#2 Evil Intentions - Elgin

This is the closest haunted house to Rockford. Take a look at the summary from thescarefactor.com after paying a visit.

In 1899, Elgin Metal Casket Company was known for producing some of the most sought-after caskets of its time. Over the years, the building has suffered from multiple reports of unsolved murders, unexplainable anomalies, and cult activities.

This building now houses Evil Intentions, a haunt that lives up to its name… in more ways than one. The stories behind the building are displayed throughout the haunt and make you feel like you’re dead center in the middle of the reported murders and cult activities.

Evil Intentions may have raised the bar for authenticity…
