Book Description

For nearly two decades, Troy Taylor has been chronicling the haunted history of Illinois, from its ghost-infested houses to its abandoned graveyards and beyond. In this volume of hauntings from the Prairie State, Taylor has recruited the staff of the award-winning Illinois Hauntings Tours to submit stories and accounts of their favorite haunts from every corner of the state, resulting in a collection of tales from Taylor and the motley crew that have never appeared in any other book in the Haunted Illinois series before!

Traveling from one end of the state to the other, the book reveals little-known tales from Southern Illinois of ax murders, brutal slayings, mysterious ghost lights, haunted historic sites and more. In Central Illinois, tales of Jacksonville appear in print for the first time, along with hauntings of the James Eldred House, the Great River Road Opry, Greene County Almshouse, Ghost Hollow, Towanda Meadows, Coliseum Ballroom and others. Taylor also adds new stories to the spectral list from Northern Illinois, including Joliet Penitentiary, Marion Lambert, the Naperville Train Crash of 1946 and many others. This is a book that is not for the faint of heart and one that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with a fascination with true Illinois ghost stories!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostly tales from around Illinois! November 8, 2014
Troy Taylor's written hundreds of books but this one is different in that it's written not only by Taylor but by the people that work on his tours as well. The tales are varied (I like the Ghost Hollow Ranch one best I think) and written in different styles but all aim to tell the history behind the hauntings readers of Taylor's books have come to expect.
If you're a fan of Illinois history you'll like this book I think. Even if you're not you'll find some of these stories pretty interesting.

Nothing scary about these ghost stories. Just another collection of similar tales which are abundant on the internet for free.
