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!

Is it Too Soon?

KnifeEd Gein?  Maybe yes, maybe no.

Jeffrey Dahmer?  Probably.

The 14-year old boy who was brutally killed in Whitnall Park?  Yes.

You won’t be surprised to discover that, in the course of researching Haunt Spots, I run across a lot of murders.  Sometimes, it’s a fit of passion that ended tragically.  Sometimes, it’s more extreme — as illustrated by these first two names.

If the crime occurred long ago, the energy of the area may have become tolerable and the crime has passed into folklore.  There’s no magic number of years, though.  The boy mentioned earlier was killed in 1974, but there will need to be many more years before his story could be considered for a Haunt Spot.  The energy is too painful.  His story is too heart-breaking.

There are still plenty of bullys to encounter.  On the “A No Safe Haven Caper” tour, Explorers go through a mini-cleansing before leaving one Haunt Spot.  It’s for their well-being and my conscience.  No-one wants that meanie to follow you home.

Conscience does make cowards of us all, Hamlet, Act III Sc. 1.   Hey!  I’m not a coward!  My conscience is a personal gauge of right and wrong.  Far be it from me to censor anyone, but I’m responsible for the quality of your experience.  It’s my job to help Explorers have a good time.  If I think a Haunt Spot is too dark or too fresh, I’ll ask other opinions.  Thus far, the opinions have all agreed.  There are a few locations that you may never see.

They aren’t my stories, but I get to tell them.  I do so with a sense of adventure but also a sense of care.  So, no you don’t get all the haunts.  Some should be left, if not in peace, in respectful solitude.

For now.

Happy Haunts,

Susan
