Haunted Macomb - $19.99
The Illinois town of Macomb is the perfect example of an old prairie town that has grown from an unforgiving frontier into a modern and diverse community in the 21stcentury. Since 1828 spirits of departed citizens have stubbornly remained dead above ground within the county. Meet the Woman in Black who gave the coal mining community of Colchester an additional burden of dread to the one they faced everyday beneath the earth. Both kindness and suffering indelibly marked the old orphanage where the unselfish hands of Josie Westfall still care for unseen children. And then there's the presence of Beulah Wagle the brutally murdered wife of a bootlegger in the cemetery where her remains were finally laid to rest. Garret Moffett will guide you among witches and poltergeist in this expert tour of Macomb's haunted history.

Haunted Springfield - $19.99
Springfield has launched a lot of history. From the career of Abraham Lincoln to the wagon train that bore the Donner party to their fate. While taking this tour with Garret Moffett you will come face to face with the history that has refused to leave. Meet the Gibson girl who turned society circles into seances during her life and the vengeful actor who held down a leading role as mischievous maker after death. And maybe you should pause before you shake the hand of a Civil War reenactor at Camp Butler just to make sure that his skin isn't as gray as his coat.
