Long ago I realized that it was a futile effort to prove the existence of the paranormal.

   The Jarrot Mansion in Cahokia, Illinois was completed by Nicholas Jarrot in 1807.  Built by slaves, the brick for the mansion was made on site.  The Jarrot Mansion is the oldest brick structure in Southern Illinois, and quite possibly the most haunted.  During recen...

    The Martin Boismenue House in North Dupo, Illinois was built in 1790 and is one of the oldest structures in Southern Illinois. The simple two-room French log cabin has been shuttered for decades.   Currently owned by the State of Illinois, the structure is starting...


     I worked at Lambert Airport for some years, and in my experience, the D Concourse at night was a very creepy place.  Built in the early 80’s by Ozark Airlines, most of the flights served Midwest destinations,  meaning that the D Concourse was al...

    In the 1990’s a group of teenagers was traveling through the Seven Gates of Hell located just outside of Collinsville, Illinois.   The gates are a set of train trestles placed sporadically near Lebanon Road.  The trestles are narrow, making it difficult, if not imp...

     Awhile back we announced what we believed to be one of Cherokee Street’s Lost Cemeteries across the street from the Lemp's Grand Hall.  While researching this further, we found another lost cemetery under the campus of the abandoned Shepard School.  Once known as...

  There are two shipwrecks along the St. Louis Riverfront.  The first is the Mine Sweeper, U.S.S. Inaugural, which was swept away by the Flood of 1993.  During the flood, the Inaugural broke free of her moorings and floated downriver.  The Inaugural was lost for severa...

  The Yucca Plant is a spinney, cactus-like plant that is very hard to eradicate, and commonly found in older cemeteries.   Referred to as the eternity plant, Yucca Plants can live for hundreds of years.  These plants were usually planted by gravestones or along the bo...

  If you’re from St. Louis, then you are most likely familiar with the town of Times Beach.  Founded in 1925, Times Beach was a promotional gimmick by the St. Louis Star Newspaper.  A purchase of a 20 X 100-foot lot for $67.50 included a free six-month newspaper subscr...
