Chicago, Illinois — Two of Illinois and Chicago’s most prominent ghost hunters and authors, Dale Kaczmarek and Troy Taylor, are launching a special night of Chicago’s ghosts, gangsters, and ghouls called Weird Excursions: The Ultimate Chicago Ghost Tour! Together for the first time, on one tour, these two acclaimed ghost writers bring their combined experience of more than 50 years with ghosts and hauntings to what will be a night like no other. The founders of the Excursions into the Unknown Ghost Tours of Chicago and the Illinois Hauntings & Weird Chicago Tours come together to bring you the “best of both worlds” — a history and hauntings tour of the weirdest and most haunted sites that the Chicagoland region has to offer.
This new tour will be held on Saturday, April 21 at 6:00 p.m. and will depart from Clark & Ohio Streets in downtown Chicago. This 5-hour tour will journey all over the city, to Chicago’s most spirited sites and then will dare to travel down notorious Archer Avenue in search of our most famous ghost — Resurrection Mary. Throughout the night, you’ll be chilled and entertained by two of Chicago’s leading authorities on the spirit world and see both sides of their acclaimed tours — with ghostly tales that you would likely never hear on one tour or the other. Sites on the tour are scheduled to include: Hull House; the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Site; Virgin Mary Visitations; 1893 World’s Fair Sites; Prairie Avenue; Luetgert Sausage Vat Murder Site; Biograph Theater; Resurrection Cemetery; Willowbrook Ballroom; and more.
These two Chicago & Illinois ghost authorities will team up together for the first time and bring you the “Ultimate Chicago Ghost Tour!”
