"little people" (armed and angry little people, no less) out in the corn fields...what's not to love?
I don't know if this one falls under the catagory of "legend tripping" or if you'd just say it's another "haunted location" - but the one place that I feel has gotten the most "publicity" in Wisconsin is Kemper Hall in Kenosha.
I remember seeing stories about it more than 20 years ago on shows like "SIGHTINGS" (anybody remember that one? there were a few other tv shows of this type that "came and went" in the 80's and 90's too).....anyway, I remember a few different "paranormal themed" television programs doing stories on Kemper Hall in Kenosha, WI.
This place is open to the public today....it's called "The Kemper Center" and people rent it out for weddings and that kind of thing. If you arewn't familiar with any of the "legends" surrounding the place, just google "KEMPER HALL, KENOSHA, WI" and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Marquette's Johnston Hall is haunted: Unknown A true testament to the mythology of urban legends is how often the story changes. At Marquette University, the rumor of the Haunting of Johnston Hall has undergone many adaptations, but the general story remains the same: in the 1960s, two Jesuits committed suicide from the fifth floor balcony and have wandering the rickety halls of the Communication building ever since. Many students think the sudden climate drop on the fourth and fifth floors signify the ghostly presence. Others believe the ghosts to be harmless, if not annoying, pranksters who are responsible for messing with the broadcasting equipment and locking doors or stealing keys. Some students even claim to see two pale faces peering out from the fifth floor windows.
Though the university has no official comment on their ghostly guests, the story is widely known among the students. A few years ago, a handful of brave staff members from the Marquette Tribune newspaper spent the night on the closed-off fifth floor, and reported freezing temperatures, strange voices, and even capturing a shadowy figure on film. Real or not, that is some spooky stuff!
