Take a journey into the history of southwestern Illinois and discover the ghosts and hauntings of Lebanon, one of the most haunted small towns in the state! Author and tour guide Len Adams reveals the myriad of spirits that still linger on the streets of this quiet town ? a place where the former residents do not rest in peace. From its beginnings in 1804, Lebanon has played host to visitors like Charles Dickens and has earned acclaim for being home to Illinois? oldest college and to the fabled Looking Glass Prairie. Today, it?s known for not only its history, but for its hauntings too! Hauntings within these pages include those of the Mermaid House, where Dickens stayed in 1842, the Tapestry Room, the St. Louis Street Café, the famous Looking Glass Playhouse, and many more ? including scores of stories and locations that have never appeared in print before. From phantom intruders to women in white, mysterious tunnels and telephone calls from beyond, you?ll jump between the past and the present, the living and the dead, with this chilling book. It?s a spine-tingling journey into the haunted history of a secret part of Illinois!
