Random Creepiest Ghost Stories From Chicago

    The Fort Dearborn Massacre

    The Fort Dearborn Massacre

    [ranking: 6]
    America is built on bloody battles and skirmishes, and the Fort Dearborn Massacre still stands as one of the bloodiest As a result of the War of 1812, tensions between settlers and Native Americans were running hot. Fort Dearborn was a stronghold, but its commander, Captain Nathan Heald, was advised to evacuate and leave everything to the Native Americans. Heald didn't react in time, and soon the whole fort was surrounded by Potawatomi Indians. After tense negotiations and broken promises by each side, a bloody massacre took place, leaving more than 50 people dead. 
    With that much carnage, it's no wonder that ghostly tales started to emerge. Soon it was said that the site of the fort itself was haunted, but reports died down once the fort was torn down and the city of Chicago was built over it. Then in the early 1980s, construction was done in the area and human remains were found and were dated back to the massacre. Weeks later, people began to see semi-transparent figures in pioneer clothing and military uniforms. Most of them were reported to look very frightened or were screaming in silence. 

    The Italian Bride

    The Italian Bride

    [ranking: 1]
    Although Mt. Carmel cemetery is home to Al Capone and other notorious gangsters, the burial ground is more well-known for another famous resident, the mysterious Italian Bride. 
    Her real name was Julia Buccola-Petta and she died during childbirth at a very young age in 1921. After she was buried in the cemetery, her mother started getting really strange dreams where Julia would say she was still alive and needed help. After six years of these dreams, her mother finally had the body exhumed. When the casket was opened, everyone was shocked to find that Julia's body had not decayed one bit since she was buried. No explanation has ever been given. With those mysterious circumstances, it's not surprising that many have reported seeing a ghostly woman in white haunting Julia's grave. 

    The Irish Castle

    The Irish Castle

    [ranking: 10]
    In 1886, Robert Givens built a mighty castle in Chicago resembling the ancient estates of his home country, Ireland. Over the years, it was owned by a variety of different groups, but now is operated by the Beverly Unitarian Church. The ghost that haunts the grounds is said to be that of a young girl, left over from the time when the castle was a boarding school. 
    The girl reportedly died in the early 1930s after being stricken with influenza. One of the first encounters with her spirit happened in the 1960s, when a custodian saw the girl, talked with her, but then was shocked to discover she completely disappeared. There are still reports of her spirit wandering around, along with odd flickering lights and inexplicable sounds.

    The Grimes Sisters

    The Grimes Sisters

    [ranking: 7]
    The mysterious disappearance of sisters Patricia and Barbara Grimes in 1956 shook Chicago to its core. The massive manhunt to find these girls took some crazy turns, but tragically ended with their dead bodies being found in the woods. The search to find out who killed them took a massive toll on the public and the police, and their deaths still remain unsolved. Even though police supposedly questioned thousands of people over the course of the investigation, they never could find the evidence that they needed. 
    Sadly, the girls' bodies were dumped at the edge of a ravine just a few feet from the shoulder of the road. Near the spot where they were found, a small house was nestled among the trees. The family who lived there mysteriously abandoned the house not long after the bodies were found and eventually, vandals burned the house down. Some believe the family left the house because it was haunted by the ghosts of the Grimes sisters, and the many reports of strange happenings that trickle in from people who explore the area around the house seem to confirm that theory. 

    The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

    The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

    [ranking: 9]
    Anybody who has taken a history class has at least heard of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. It was a bloody attack that both wiped out any gang opposition to Al Capone's criminal empire and was also the start of his downfall, as it convinced the public that Capone needed to be stopped. Seven people lost their lives in a violent execution on Clark Street and their spirits supposedly still haunt the spot to this very day. 
    People claim to hear screams and machine gun fire as they pass the site of the massacre, and can't help feeling immense fear when they are in the area. It also affects pets, who bark or whine when they walk by the place.

    The Sausage Vat Murder

    The Sausage Vat Murder

    [ranking: 11]
    In the 1870s, a successful German meat packer named Adolph Luetgert moved to Chicago to open up his own sausage-making factory, which was a huge hit and he became very rich. He married Louisa Bicknese, but their marriage was constantly plagued by arguments and fights. One day, Louisa just disappeared, and after a lengthy investigation, police put together that Luetgert had killed Bicknese and hid her body by boiling her in acid and burning her remains. They checked the boiler in the factory and found human remains along with two of Louisa's rings. Luetgert went to jail, but apparently his wife's spirit wasn't happy just seeing him locked away. 
    Soon after he was imprisoned, Luetgert started to claim his wife was haunting him and he was driven insane. He died in 1900, still proclaiming that he was innocent of the crime. It also wasn't long before reports started to come in of people seeing her ghost at her old house and at the sausage factory. Nowadays her house and the factory have been torn down, so apparently the only time to see her is on the anniversary of her death in May
