Random Creepiest Ghost Stories From Chicagoreport

    The Devil Baby of Hull House

    The Devil Baby of Hull House

    [ranking: 13]
    The Hull House in Chicago started with such good intentions. It was to be a beacon of hope, a community house with the goal of educating and helping newly arrived European immigrants back in the late 1800s. But its legacy would soon be overshadowed by something far more sinister, as it was believed that the Hull House was harboring the Devil Baby. 
    The legend goes that a baby was born to a devout Catholic and her supremely atheist husband. It was said to have pointed ears, horns, and a tail. Unable to do anything about it, the couple was forced to lock the baby up in the attic at the Hull House. The story quickly spread and soon the Hull House was turning away crowds of people who knocked on the door looking to catch a glimpse of the Devil Baby. Although the legend isn't as strongly believed today, it's still a widely-held thought that there was a deformed child being held in the attic of the house and sometimes at night, you can see a deformed face looking out the attic window. 

    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. 

    Resurrection Mary

    Resurrection Mary

    [ranking: 4]
    Resurrection Mary is one of Chicago's most famous ghost stories. It involves a young woman who wanders the streets around Resurrection Catholic Cemetery, scaring unsuspecting good Samaritans who stop to help her get home.
    One popular legend about how she came to be states that she was a young woman in the early 1930s who really loved to dance. She liked to go out to dance halls and have a good time. One night she was hit by a passing car on her way home and was killed. She was then buried at the cemetery in her favorite dancing clothes.
    Now her spirit roams the place around the cemetery and even the dance halls. Mary still likes to go to dance halls, and after she finds a boy to dance with for the night, she asks him for a ride home. She tells her date that she lives on the cemetery grounds because her father is the caretaker--then when they arrive at the cemetery, she disappears right in front of her his eyes.

    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.

    Flight 191

    Flight 191

    [ranking: 3]
    One of the worst airline disasters in American history happened in Chicago in 1979, when Flight 191 dropped from the sky shortly after taking off from O'Hare International. It killed everyone on board, all 271 passengers and crew. After a lengthy investigation, the crash was chalked up to a number of factors, including a stress crack in a flange that held the engine pylon. The entire community was changed forever after that fateful day. 
    It wasn't long before reports of ghostly activity surrounding the crash site started to emerge. People started to claim seeing odd, bobbing white lights, but no source was ever found. The creepiest stories came from a small mobile home park adjacent to the crash site, where for months after the crash, residents kept reporting frantic knocking at their doors, but no one was ever there. To this day, there are still frequent reports of weird knockings, strange sounds, and a few spirits roaming about the area. 

    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
