Whether you’re a skeptic, a paranormal enthusiast or just looking to learn more about Whitewater’s haunted history, you won’t want to miss Whitewater’s sixth-annual Spirit Tour! Whitewater may seem like a normal Midwestern town, but it hides a dark past, one rife with tales of witches, ghosts, strange murders and occult practices. In fact, Whitewater’s supernatural history has earned it the nickname, “Second Salem.”
On the Spirit Tour, we will share stories and information about Whitewater’s “spirited” sites. Guests will experience cemeteries under the stars, visit with Whitewater’s most (in)famous historical inhabitants, and gain an understanding of spiritualism and its impact on our city. Be sure to look out for the witches of Whitewater, the ghost of Nellie Horan—you never know where she might make an appearance – and the curious configuration of the graves of the unlucky (or potentially cursed, if you believe the stories) Winchesters.
