Real Haunted House

Schweppe Mansion

Chicago, Illinois

This stone mansion with twenty rooms was unoccupied for half a century after the man who owned it committed suicide; he was mourning the loss of his wife Laura Schweppe. The halls are haunted by the ghost of his servant. The ghost of the former owner is seen in the bedrooms. There is one window in the master bedroom that, despite all the other windows being filthy, never needs cleaning.

ARE YOU SURE WHERE THE MANSION IS? ARE YOU SURE IT’S CHICAGO AND NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STATE AND THAT THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER WEREN’T KILLED IN A HOUSE FIRE? THEN THE FATHER MIGHT HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE. BUT SURVIVING IS THE YOUNGER DAUGHER THAT WILL NOT SELL. IT WAS MY DREAM HOUSE AS A CHILD.

Hi! Just found this site. I am a Paranormal Investigator. My Team & I help home/business owners who are haunted. Our Team works thru out the Midwest States (IL., IN, WI, Iowa, MI, KY, etc.)
You would be amazed on how many people have problems with paranormal activity. Most houses look/feel normal on the outside… but, inside is completely different!

Trust me. This is freaking freaky. I used to live by where Bloody mary’s tomb is and where her spirit is and where her spirit hangs out there. I heard that she asks men to give her a ride to the cemetary.

It may be located on Mayflower Road on the east end of town (near the Lake on the North Shore) in Lake Forest (thirty miles north of Chicago). Just think east of Sheridan Road.

Allegedly, 405 Mayflower Road according to other websites but I don’t know if I believe this stuff.

I don’t think this story about this house is true at all. I have driven by it and it has a good vibe. I think the entire thing is probably made up.

Just visited the mansion tonight and took some pictures. After carefully looking at one of the pictures, I was able to notice a ghostly woman looking out through one of the windows on the upper level of the house. Creepy, I must say. This house is haunted, and there is no doubt about it.
