Hey all, My wife and I went to Elk Lake Dam last night to see if we could catch any occurances..we took about 40 pictures with a digital camera. We got some orbs on a couple pictures but nothing real impressive. We did not see the ghost of Mary Schlais. Anyone else have any experiences at this location?? I am very fascinated by this location because its one of the few places where the story behind it has been verified as true....
I grew up in Eau Claire and ALWAYS found that to be a strange and creepy place, although I had never heard of the story of Mary Schlais while growing up there. I've since visited many times. It used to have a bridge over the dam where many claim to have seen figures or strange lights.
On my last visit, there was nothing there, except I felt like I was being watched and followed. When I got back in my car, there was a fresh indentation in the leather of the passenger seat like somebody was sitting there. Very creepy place indeed. On this board, there are some other accounts of people who HAVe seen or heard some screams and other disturbances from the area.
Straight west on Cameron St until you get outside of town a couple miles. It will be on your right. You will see a deadend road and the dam is right there. I dont know exactly what street to look for but if you drive slow enough you will see it.
we really want to go, i think its in the top 5 haunted places for us. Never been there , hopefully next summer. now that the price of gas is dirt cheap we can all afford to do haunted spots hours away.
