Voices from the Grave

Local cemeteries are filled with interesting stories just waiting to be discovered. These include the slightly odd tales of some of our county’s most unusual settlers. Northern Illinois has been the home of Native American legends, ghostly tales, and truly horrible crimes.  Recommended for ages 18 and up.
