The historic mill town of Everett, abutting the deep, dark waters of Puget Sound, has been haunted since its founding. The Rucker family's spirits are said to linger near both their distinctive pyramid-shaped mausoleum and mansion by the bay, and the shadowy figures of former patrons and entertainers are purported to roam inside the Historic Everett Theater. Many believe the angry shades of laborers still riot, demanding freedom of speech just like on that horrible November night in 1916 when several lost their lives. Even the Everett Community College library is rumored to house ghosts reading their favorite books. Author Deborah Cuyle reveals the spooky history of the City of Smokestacks and the spirits that refuse to leave it.

Established in 1831, Naperville is one of the oldest settlements in the Greater Chicago area. The city's rich and fascinating heritage has been carefully passed down from one proud generation to the next; however, nowhere has Naperville's ghostly oral tradition and haunted history been preserved until now. Most of Naperville's unique legends--compiled for the fi rst time ever in these pages--arose from accounts of actual historic events and from the lives of notable personages in the city's long history. As the tragic events and persons faded from living memory, all that might remain of them would be ghost stories whispered by fi relight and, later, by fl ashlight tucked under a teenager's chin at slumber parties. Some eerie legends in these pages have origins that are lost in time, and still other hair-raising ghost stories included in this work are chilling contemporary, firsthand accounts of paranormal encounters within Naperville's sprawling boundaries . . . perhaps from even just down the street.
