Chad Lewis will be at the Whitefish Bay, WI library on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2010 at 7pm for a ghost/haunted lecture including photos and slides. It is free but you must register by calling the library to make a reservation. Phone is 414-964-4380 located at 5420 N. Marlborough Drive.
I attended this lecture along with 30 to 40 others, and met Chad Lewis. He is very personably and an excellent speaker! He spoke of several haunted areas throughout the state including his hometown of Eau Claire.
It was interesting for me to hear about Ed Gein and that the property is still up for sale. Also, Chad concluded the lecture/slide show with a story of a local haunted house in Milwaukee but unfortunately without any clues as to where it is. Supposedly lots of activity with lights flashing on/off at night, knocking, smells, etc. The second floor had a billiards parlor way back when and people report hearing games going on. Wonder where it is?
Chad also had several books he wrote for sale and he does travel the midwest. Maybe PM him and find his schedule for Ilinois.
