13. Ramsey Cemetery

Finally, we should address Ramsey Cemetery, which is also known as Casbar Cemetery. Located in Shumway, it tends to attract teenagers as well as ghosts. The suicide of a young man in a now-demolished chapel over 50 years ago has led to reports of a man in a black cloak with glowing red eyes. One visitor to the cemetery reports a tractor ride to the cemetery that went wrong, resulting in serious injuries to both the driver and a female passenger. Allegedly, a werewolf lives on the ground of the cemetery. This supernatural creature is known to live in the cemetery’s many rock shelters.

There are other locations in Illinois reputed to be haunted, such as the Willow Creek Farm and the Peoria State Hospital. Even Room 441 of the Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago is reported to be inhabited by the ghost of a shadowy woman. If there’s one thing to learn from this list, however, it is this: if you’re afraid of ghosts, stay away from the state of Illinois.
