The First Book Ever Written Solely on the History & Hauntings of Archer Avenue & Chicago's Most Famous Ghost, Resurrection Mary! Archer Avenue, the famous haunted highway on Chicago's southwest side, has been a source of fascination for ghost hunters, history buffs and paranormal enthusiasts for decades. In addition to the haunted houses, graveyards and buildings that line this old road, Archer Avenue is home to the one of the most famous ghosts in America -- Resurrection Mary! She has been the subject of songs and the stuff of legend since the middle 1930s but for the first time, Troy Taylor will recount not only scores of sightings and first-hand accounts with this elusive phantom but will reveal the results of his own investigations, from the complete history, her mysterious origins, ghostly encounters and the identity of the "girls who would be Resurrection Mary"! Taylor's book, Resurrection Mary, is more than just a collection of ghost sightings. It's also the first in-depth account of the history, mystery & hauntings of Archer Avenue, a former Indian trail that is one of the oldest roadways in the Chicago region. Other historical hauntings that are explored in the search for Resurrection Mary include hauntings of Chinatown, History & Hauntings of Bridgeport, Archer Avenue's haunted graveyards, Kean Avenue Hauntings, Mysteries of the Forest Preserves, the Maple Lake Spook Light, The Haunted Roadhouse, Hauntings at St. James-Sag Church & Burial Ground & Much More!
