The Most Haunted Town in America! Alton, Illinois
Spooks call this place home, and they have the potential of appearing at any time, to any person, at any location. It is said that limestone, a building material used in many Alton dwellings because of its supply nearby, holds psychic energy. The Illini Indians once dominated this place, along with the nearby convergence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. All this makes for a great ghostly paradise!

Illinois Tourist Attractions, Chicago, Illinois Travel Guide | Top 43 Places To Visit in Illinois
Illinois is a state in the Midwestern area of the United States. It is the sixth most crowded state and 25th biggest state as far as land zone, and is regularly noted as a microcosm of the whole country. With Chicago in the upper east, little modern urban communities and incredible agrarian profitability in focal and northern Illinois, and characteristic assets like coal, timber, and oil in the south, Illinois has a differing financial base and is a noteworthy transportation center point. The Port of Chicago interfaces the state to other worldwide ports from the Great Lakes, by means of the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to the Atlantic Ocean, and the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, by means of the Illinois Waterway.

5 Most Haunted Places in Chicago Explained by a Ghost Expert and a Historian
Chicago often ranks among the most haunted cities in the United States, but not everyone is a fan of ghost stories. When I asked Northwestern University professor and historian Bill Savage to weigh in, he said, “Chicago is haunted not by ghosts, but by the city’s neglect of the working class.” Whether you believe in the supernatural or not (I’m with Bill), most of Chicago’s enduring ghost stories contain at least a kernel of historical truth. With that in mind, here are the ten “most haunted” sites in the city.

The fun of outdoor adventure in Illinois at Starved Rock State Park
Starved Rock State Park is located near Utica in Illinois. It hosts more visitors than 10 of the 59 National Parks in the United States. And there is a good reason why!. Whether you enjoy hiking along the nature trails or viewing the many spectacular overlooks along the Illinois River, recreational opportunities abound. From picnicking to fishing to boating, from horseback riding to camping to enjoying winter sports, there’s so much to do that you’ll come back again and again. The backdrop for your activities are 18 canyons formed by glacial melt water and stream erosion. They slice dramatically through tree-covered, sandstone bluffs for four miles at Starved Rock State Park, which is located along the south side of the Illinois River, one mile south of Utica and midway between the cities of LaSalle-Peru and Ottawa.
The park is best known for its fascinating rock formations, primarily St. Peter sandstone, laid down in a huge shallow inland sea more than 425 million years ago and later brought to the surface. While the areas along the river and its tributaries still are predominantly forested, much of the area is a flat, gently rolling plain. The upland prairies were created during an intensive warming period several thousand years after the melting of the glaciers. The Illinois River Valley in the Starved Rock area is a major contrast to the flatland. The valley was formed by a series of floods as glacial melt water broke through moraines, sending torrents of water surging across the land and deeply eroding the sandstone and other sedimentary rocks.
During early spring, when the end of winter thaw is occurring and rains are frequent, sparkling waterfalls are found at the heads of all 18 canyons, and vertical walls of moss-covered stone create a setting of natural geologic beauty uncommon in Illinois. Some of the longer-lasting waterfalls are found in French, LaSalle and St. Louis canyons. Waterfalls, rivers and streams can undercut a cliff, creating overhangs in the sandstone, like Council Overhang at the east end of the park. Other sights can be seen from the bluffs themselves, which provide vantage points for enjoying spectacular vistas. The porous sandstone bluffs allow water to soak quickly through, only to collect in greater quantities on the slopes below. The resulting lush vegetation supports an abundant wildlife and bird population, including woodchucks, moles, vireos and catbirds. Wood ducks that nest in hollow trees occasionally can be seen paddling along the river’s edge. Evidence of beavers and muskrats can be seen as you walk along the River Trail.
Black oak, red cedar and white oak, as well as white pine and white cedar, grow on the drier, sandy bluff tops. Yellow bellied sapsuckers drill parallel rows of small holes on cedar trees and return to feed on sap and small insects. Service berry and northern honeysuckle–shrubs that prefer a well-drained area–attract scarlet tangers and cedar waxwings.
Scariest Places on Earth (Dorsey Mansion, New Mexico)
A 19th century mansion located in New Mexico is investigated by a Navajo Shaman. A cleansing ceremony is performed where human remains were once found. This is one of the earliest productions of the SPOE series. Though kinda quirky and stupid, this show actually paved the way for all of the rest we see on TV today. Coincidentally, paranormal and ghost hunting programs has become quite popular over the past 10 years.
