Old Willow Shopping Center is like stepping back in time. Also spirits of mother and child is seen on the second level and the woods behind the buildings are not for the weak of heart. I wandered the woods from behind the buildings on the second level.

If you open the door you may be in for a surprise with what is there. Music at times can be heard coming from the clock tower.
Red Gate Woods
Red Gate Woods is a location I picked as when you pull up to the area you basically are in the center of the area of Archer Avenue I call the Stretch of Death, between St. James Cemetery and Fairmont Hills Cemetery. Pay attention to the number of road side memorials on between the two cemeteries.
St. James at Sag Bridge Parish
Saint James Cemetery in Willow Springs, IL is also known as Monk's Castle and yes it is haunted. Just venture in to the back of the cemetery and the far back fence with the huge Irish headstone. Bring your camera and meters if you have them.
Grimes Sisters location that their bodies were found. It is said that the sound of a car door slamming and taking off at a high rate speed can be heard. To get to this location that is not showing up on the map, once you leave the Healing Waters, make a left on to German Church Road and the location will be on your right side before you arrive to County Line Rd.
Healing Water Park
The location is the historic Native Americans Healing Waters located in Willow Springs, IL. The Native Americans knew that they came to the area because of the boulders being laid from North to South and the circle of boulders would hold the ceremonial flame. The Native Americans would come to this location to be cared for until healed. The supernatural activity that individuals have reported is that there are nights that drumming and chanting is being heard
Lithuanian National Cemetery
Lithuanian National Cemetery is listed here as a stop because of the unique cemetery headstones this beautiful cemetery has. Many of the headstones have a bronze bust of the head of the individual in the headstone. This is unique as I never seen anything like that in cemeteries.
Resurrection Cemetery, home of Resurrection Mary, the ghost that wanders the roads of the S.W. Suburbs. The haunted mausoleum at Resurrection Cemetery. Have actually heard police responding to location at 1am in the morning as the lights come on and go off on their own. Police report all doors are locked and no one 'living' inside.
