Chicago, IL is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, the Chicago Water Towers. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Built in 1869, it is the second-oldest water tower in the United States, after the Louisville Water Tower in Louisville, Kentucky. The tower was constructed to house a large water pump, intended to draw water from Lake Michigan. The Chicago Water Tower now serves as a Chicago Office of Tourism art gallery known as the City Gallery in the Historic Water Tower. It features the work of local photographers and artists and filmmakers.
Not many structures remained standing after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, but the Chicago Water Tower made it, and it has a ghost story also. It seems a man hung himself there to avoid the flames. His figure is still seen dangling even today.
