Haunts of the Windy City
Did you know the Great Fire of Chicago in 1871 wasn't the only tragedy to befall the Windy City? Chicago has been the scene of fires, floods, epidemics, and crime since its beginning- all combined to create a town full of haunted locations.
Turmoil and tragedy define Chicago as much as its towering skyscrapers and deep-dish pizza. From a devastating fire that destroyed much of the city to the murderous crimes of its resident mob leaders, the specter of death has long stalked the streets of the Windy City.
