Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Ghost Sightings - PAGE 2
(...continued from the previous page)|
Stayed at the Abbey for a business seminar. I shared a room with one and of my fellow workers. He went to bed first, and I next. As I was unwinding, I heard a commotion from the next room. It sounded like a couple fighting then a woman' screaming. Moments later someone banged on our door, and I opened it quickly to find the hall empty. I finally fell asleep still hearing the commotion. The next day my roommate said he heard nothing, and the front desk
person said the room next to ours was empty. I know what I heard, and I suspect it was a haunting.|

On a visit to Lake Geneva from Chicago, my husband and I decided to have a picnic lunch in a neighborhood park. It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm, and the park we chose was huge, with trees, flowers and a gently rolling landscape. I remember that we found the park purely by accident. We were just driving around looking for a nice spot to eat, and somehow we found ourselves in a small neighborhood with a park literally just across the street from neighboring homes. We were celebrating our third year of marriage and a day trip to Geneva seemed like a wonderful idea. We parked the car, unpacked our gear and set off to find a nice spot. After a few minutes of wandering around, we settled for a quiet spot near a small berm with a lovely little tree. This spot was quiet and offered us some privacy from the other park visitors.
Over the years, my husband heard me talk about ''hand-me down'' ghost stories and so-called adventures, but neither of us truly believed in them. They were just something you joked about or shared over a bottle of wine with your friends. However, that day changed both our lives forever. Just a few feet from the tree, we spread our blanket on the ground and unpacked our basket. My husband insisted on sitting at the base of the tree. He is like that, always wanted to have his back to the corner. I just smiled and settled myself on the ground across from him. After a couple minutes of snacking and talking, I looked down at my husband's soda and noticed he had almost finished it. Looking up at him, I asked if he wanted another, and saw that he was staring at something behind me - his face white - eyes like dinner plates. I asked what was wrong. He just grunted, his eyes still wide, and then he lifted his arm and pointed. Now, my husband used to be an EMT, and I could not imagine what could possibly have shaken him so badly. I could only guess it was something bad. Looking over my shoulder at the ground - the first thing I noticed was the black lace up boots and black stockings - the kind worn during the nineteen hundreds. I fell backwards because suddenly the boots were right next to the edge of the blanket - it happened that quickly. Lying on my back, I looked up to see a woman, dressed entirely in black leaning over me. Her long sleeved dress reached to mid calf, and was overlaid in a matching black lace. She wore a black wide brimmed hat and matching black gloves.
Okay, so when something like this happens, your brain tries logic. It is more than eighty degrees out; why is she dressed in a black mourning costume. What is with the boots and stockings? Is there some kind of festival going on? These thoughts raced through my head. I then thought that she looked like she was wearing something someone either wore to a funeral, or something someone might have been buried in. She looked to be mid to late forties, no make-up, brown eyes, maybe about five foot six or so. Her waist was so small that my next thought was corset. She was wearing a corset. I turned to look back at my husband. He just sat there staring. Then I looked around at the other people in the park to see if anyone else noticed her, but no one did. That is when I realized she was a ghost, but for some reason, I was not afraid. She was looking intently at me, like she was waiting for me to speak, so I did. I asked what she wanted. When she responded, her voice did not sound like anything I had ever heard. No joke; it was all around me and in my head and full of air and wind, but basically she just said that I was a special one. Then she bent down until her face was literally just a few inches from my own.
