In Illinois, what it is like to be a ghost hunter.


Being Introduced To The Word Of Ghost Hunting

I was never a big believer in ghosts. Several years ago, I went on a paranormal investigation of the Coronado Performing Arts Center. Knowing the history of the venue and ghosts, I thought for sure I would experience something. Well, unfortunately, nothing happened.

Then I met Dan and Larry from "The Ghosthunter Dan Norvell Project" a while back. They started doing an annual series with me each week during the month of October to celebrate Halloween. The paranormal investigators would share stories of their experiences around Illinois and Wisconsin.

Giving Ghost Hunting Another Chance

Larry and Dan invited me out for another opportunity to witness ghosts. We hit one of the paranormal hot spots in Rockford, Veterans Memorial Hall. Once Again, I came up empty-handed.

I was not ready to give up just yet. Our next stop was another popular location for ghost hunting in Rockford. That is Tinker Swiss Cottage. We hit the jackpot. There were a lot of interactions between us and the spirits.

Other Investigations By The Ghost Hunters

I have not had another opportunity to go out with the guys for another adventure but I plan on it in the near future. They are always going out for more paranormal investigations.
