Calbreath Witch

  Just outside of Lebanon, Illinois lies the grave of Rhoda Calbreath.  According to urban legend, Rhoda was the mother of a teenage witch that was caught practicing witchcraft.  Being a devout Christian she saw this as an abomination.  Fearing that her daughter had made a pact with the Devil, Rhoda decided to cleanse her daughter of her sins.  Rhoda made her daughter confess before God and then strangled her immediately after to insure that her soul was in grace.  To cover her crime, Rhoda then buried her daughter in an unmarked grave in the Old Methodist Church Cemetery.

   To this day the young witch’s grave has never been located.  At night some claim to have heard the faint pleas of the teenage witch to her mother not to kill her. 


Our group is self-funded, with the mandate to not only serve the paranormal community, but also the communities in which we live. Through our various endeavors, we not only raise money to support our own group, but we also help raise money to support private businesses, historical societies, and non-for-profit charities.


We are a small group of eclectic individuals who view the investigation of the paranormal not as a scientific endeavor, but one of personal exploration.

This philosophy allows us to present a truly unique experience, and one that you will never forget.
