HAUNTINGS
of ARCHER AVENUE:

Resurrection Mary & Beyond
Sunday, April 27th 2-6pm
Hosted by Ursula Bielski with Special Guests

Few roads in the world rival the super-haunted reputation of Chicago's Archer Avenue, home to some of the city's most legendary ghost stories, including the most famous Vanishing Hitchhiker on earth, Resurrection Mary. This road was constructed by poor Irish immigrants --builders of the controversial and ill-funded Illinois & Michigan Canal-- who laid down the road over an ancient Indian trail known for its spiritual powers. The slavelike conditions of their labor, their deaths from hunger, thirst, disease and violence: all live on in the deep folklore of this storied region. We'll visit the Back of the Yards neighborhood, home to Mary Bregovy, believed by many to have been the ill-fated phantom in life, pass her home on South Damen Avenue--and the funeral home where her body lay--, continue to Summit, Illinois, the hometown of little Ana Norkus, killed on the eve of her thirteenth birthday, who many claim as the ghost in question. We'll visit the cemeteries of Archer Road, view the Willowbrook Ballroom and hear of the secrets of Red Gate Woods. Finally, we'll arrive at the epic Halloween costume party at Chet's Melody Lounge, across from the gates of Resurrection Cemetery, where Mary herself is said to have sought shelter one blustery winter's night. Food and fun will be on tap (cash bar) before heading home. 

This tour is open to all ages, but you may also BYOB on this very special tour. Please no hard coolers.  $55 per person includes full tour and transportation and prizes and appetizers. 

BYOB ok on the bus.

M  O  R  E   O N   O U R   T O U R S

The Chicago Hauntings Ghost Tours are conducted aboard the city's only "Ghost Bus," and each lasts approximately 2.5 hours, visiting an array of authenticated haunted sites throughout the city. This is not just a driving tour where you'll ride for hours and simply look out the windows of the bus. Rather, we depart the bus several times throughout each tour at some of Chicago's most actively haunted sites, inviting guests to investigate a particular haunted Chicago location for themselves.

We don't provide an itinerary because we like to vary the routes, and also because we like to throw in a few surprises. But among the more popular locations we visit include the Fort Dearborn Massacre site, Iroquois Theater & Death Alley, the Eastland Disaster site, haunted Streeterville, the death site of Resurrection Mary, Hull House, Harpo Studios, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre site, the abandoned City Cemetery, H.H. Holmes' "glass bending factory," the Tonic Room, The Biograph, and many others -- some notorious, some not as well-known - but but all researched and documented for their authenticity by the Chicago Hauntings team.  We know you'll enjoy them.

We can never guarantee any of the sites on the tour will produce an active supernatural occurrence -- nor can we guarantee they won't. So be warned: strange things have occurred on our tours in the past! See our gallery of possible ghost pictures taken on the tours!

Below, Ursula Bielski and a Chicago Hauntings guest enjoy the tour.
