Haunt Spots self-guided audio tours… Still available!

Logo sepia There was life (so to speak…) before the Port Washington Ghost Walk? Yes!

Before I started focusing exclusively on the PWGW, I offered a number of self-guided ‘Haunt Spots” audio tours. They tell the story of the haunting and guide you to the location so that you can check it out yourself. They were getting pretty popular, but ye olde ‘day job’ didn’t allow me enough time to promote, maintain and add to them.

For some reason, I’m receiving requests for them again – primarily from people who tried one and want to go on another. So, here we are. Yes, they are still available. If you want one, I’m more than happy to email it to you directly vs ordering it online. The locations I have are…

  • Potter’s Field – near Wauwatosa
  • Dousman Stagecoach Inn – Brookfield
  • Founder’s Cemetery Park – Cedarburg
  • Union Cemetery – near Glendale
  • Roadhouse Bar and Grill – Cedarburg
  • Fitzsimmons Road (which you’ve already done)
  • Whitnall Park – Greenfield
  • Grant Park – South Milwaukee

I also have the ones below, but they are more like brief ‘drive by’s’

  • Sunset Playhouse – Elm Grove
  • Muirdale Sanitarium – Wauwatosa
  • Grafton Inn – Grafton

The self-guided audio tours are only $10 each. Use the contact form below and I’m happy to tell you all about them.

Happy Haunts!

My name is Susan and I’m a Haunt-a-holic

I give in. Time to confess and come clean. I’m addicted to Halloween, ghost stories, and spooky places. My name is Susan and I’m a Haunt-a-holic.

I’m not proud of this dirty little secret… oh, heck – who am I kidding? I’m like a kid with a new Sleepy Hollow bedsheet set, glow-in-the dark Svengoolie tee-shirt, who’s high on Count Chocula. Seriously. It’s not a secret.

Waverly Hills Sanitorium

I’m not alone. My BFF is just as addicted. We recently won a silent auction prize for a photo shoot. Guess where? Cemetery. Of course. Dressed in the gothiest best we could muster for women with zero-level goth closets. Lots of black eyeshadow helped.

Movies. Knick-knacks. Cheesy tv shows. Trips to haunted insane asylums – oh baby. All true – especially that last item. My summer vacation this year is a long girl’s weekend down to Louisville, KY for the Waverly Hills Sanitorium tour. Guaranteed to freak ourselves out but good.MV5BMTM4NDk5ODA4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTg3MDAwMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR1,0,214,317_AL_

The point? It’s time for you and me to stand up and be counted! Admit who and what we are. No more hiding in dank and musty shadows pretending to be a poltergeist. Or is that just me? Eh, it’s a hobby.

Are you a Haunt-a-holic? Solidarity Sisters and Brothers of the Night. Raise your candelabra high and repeat after me, “I am one with my childlike glee at watching “The Haunting” every few months (or insert your favorite ghoulish indulgence here).

I’m done asking why. Finished with wondering if it was a flaw in how I was raised. If I’m actually just a morbid person living a double life as someone cheerful and lighthearted with respectable hobbies like pinning dead insects to a board, framing and displaying them in the parlor.

We need a salute. Something like Michael Jackson’s Thriller zombie pose. We can vote on it at our next meet and screech.

Bwahahahaaaa!!!

Newly Discovered Haunt Spots

This is what it’s all about.  In the world of paranormal travels, the holy grail, the golden goose, the ticket to Ghost Hunters Live is discovering a ghost story that no-one has heard of yet.

This moment may be brief, but it can be so bright. **

It’s practically guaranteed that from the time you tell someone about reports of paranormal activity to the time it shows up on the granddaddy of on-line listings, Shadowlands, will be split seconds.  The time from that post to the haunt being added to the exceptional Unexplained Research map is not even worth measuring.  Those folks are on top of it and we’re indebted.

Allow me to bask for a moment or two because that’s about all we’ve got.  Aaaaaannnndddddd….. Done.

We’ve got two, count ’em, two newly discovered Haunt Spots on our latest tour, “A Forlorn Phantoms to Floozies Caper”.  This tour is pretty eclectic.  It covers 2 very well known haunts and the 2 we sussed out just for you.  The tour takes you on a road trip north of Milwaukee, into Ozaukee County.

Digging into the rumors was so much fun.  All it took was a hint and off we went.  We talked to neighbors, dug into history, visited libraries, and generally poked around until we made nuisances of ourselves.  But, that’s what it took. Not only did we discover some rich ghost stories, but there were other pay-offs.

Pay-off 1:  We captured some interesting EVP’s at one of the new haunts.

Pay-off 2:  The people who manage the other location are going to let Haunt Spots Explorers poke around inside.

Bottom line pay-off:  Now it’s your turn.  We had our fun.  The stories are recorded and the Caper is up on the website. Grab a couple of friends and go check it out for yourself.  Just in time for Halloween.

Happy Haunts,

Susan Scot Fry
