When Jeremy and I first moved to Champaign, people told us to watch out for Effingham. We assumed it was for the speed traps on the interstate by the rest area or all the construction. Nope, that was just part of what we should have been warned about. Turns out that in Effingham there are werewolves, warlocks, spirits and something else entirely weird prowling around. When Jeremy and I found out what all was going on down there, we had to go check it out ourselves.
Since tomorrow is Halloween I thought a post about witches would be appropriate. Surprisingly there are quite a few witch legends in Illinois to check out. I decided to check out the two nearest ones to share with you.
When Jeremy and I first moved to Champaign, one of the wives from the recruiting shop took us out to show us Champaign and to do some shopping. One of the shops we checked out was Jane Addams Used Book Store. While we were there, Jeremy found an interesting book called The Illinois Road Guide To Haunted Locations. Being new to Illinois it seemed like a practical purchase for a set of paranormal investigators.
