The History

The Bachelor Grove Cemetery was established in 1840. The Englishmen who used this cemetery left it abandoned when the settlement moved east. It fell into disrepair and was vandalized frequently. The nearby pond was even rumored to be a dumping ground for Chicago mob hits.

The Hauntings

Many different paranormal occurrences have been reported over the long history of this very active location. Numerous ghost stories have accumulated over its long history. The "White Lady" or "Madonna of Bachelor's Grove" is the most well-known story associated with the cemetery. Her apparition is seen walking the grounds holding an infant, especially when there's a full moon. 

Another strange report is seeing ghost cars on a nearby road. It is said that devil worshipers were common here in the '60s and '70s, leading some to believe that there are some evil elements in this cemetery.
