By Stephen Osborne
Spending most of my life in Northern Illinois, this book was of particular interest to me. I could picture the places he writes about, and have even been to some of them.
The book is divided into counties. Included in each account is history of the area and photographs.
Stephen Osborne tells stories that are well known, such as Resurrection Mary of Chicago. He also writes of Chicago’s infamous Biograph Theatre, of John Dillinger’s history. There is also the frightening Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery history.
Stephen tells other tales, too. He takes us on an investigation with the Forest City Paranormal Society, as they research the Coronado Theatre in Winnebago County.
I hope that Stephen Osborne writes another book of Northern Illinois haunts. This one was very interesting.
