Each year Haunted Rockford Paranormal Events and Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum & Gardens partner to present the Illinois Paranormal Conference. The Conference features speeches from several individuals prominent in the Paranormal Research Community. You can also meet and talk with other people from all aspects of the Paranormal, many of whom offer products and services in the vendor area.
Many historic places in Rockford and the surrounding area have long been reported to be haunted. We work with several different paranormal investigation teams to get you inside some of the homes and businesses named in many reports of paranormal activity. The investigators use a variety of electronic devices to try to find and record any events, while local historians give the background of the location and psychics give their impression of any spirits they sense.
Join us as we tour historic homes, businesses, neighborhoods and cemeteries in Rockford and the surrounding area. Local historian Kathi Kresol will tell stories from her research into the history of the location and sprit medium Sara Bowker will give you her impressions of any spirits who may linger.
