I worked on the renovation of this building, and although I never saw or heard anything. A couple of the guys said they had seen the image of a man in a window on the fourth floor. Nobody would be there when we got up there!!!.|

I have been to what was originally the ''sulfur lick springs hotel'' located in Wedron Illinois. The sulfur springs' baths are actually located in the basement of the still-standing structure of the hotel that was originally built in 1898 during the Victorian times.
It is today being re-modeled (march 2012) for condominiums and senior-citizen occupancy. The original plan for re-modeling began before the economic downfall of 2008. The building has a significant history dealing with top-name gangsters of the prohibition-era (possibly Al capone included) as well as high-ranking politicians.|
The list of names includes the mayor of the city of Chicago; William Thompson (in term 1915 to 192l; and again from 1927 to 1931) spent a period at sulfur lick springs while in recovery from surgery.|
During that recovery time a photograph was taken of Thompson posing with hundreds of Chicago-ward workers at the resort. Some say capone is in the photograph though due to quality almost anyone can guess at which gangster is the infamous kingpin of Chicago.
New photos have tied capone directly to Thompson. Although the photo taken in Wedron is not concrete. In 1941 the church was attached to the main building. The original sulfur lick springs building was rebuilt in 1955.
