Givens Castle...One of the most haunted sites on the South Side of Chicago is the Beverly Unitarian Church or “The Castle.” The Castle is located on 103rd and Longwood in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. Robert Givens, a successful real estate developer turned author, built the Castle in 1886 and requested that it be modeled after the ancient estates in his native Ireland. Some people say that Givens built the house as a gift for his fiance who died before the house was finished.
