The 12 Most Haunted Places in Wisconsin

Wisconsin: a land of cheese, breweries, and the great outdoors, where the only thing you’d expect to go bump in the night is a rogue cow. But venture beyond the dairy and you’ll find a spine-chilling side to America’s Dairyland, riddled with haunted buildings, eerie roads, and spine-tingling specters.

So, grab your bravest friends, and buckle up for a ghostly tour of Wisconsin’s most terrifying haunts. Remember, when the cheese curds start to fly, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Let’s dive into the twelve most haunted places in Wisconsin, where things might be a bit more ghoulish than they appear

1. Boy Scout Lane, Stevens Point

Boy Scout Lane, Stevens Point, Wisconsin

Don’t let the name fool you, Boy Scout Lane sounds pleasant enough, but it is one of the most haunted places in Wisconsin.

The dead-end road was named in honor of some Boy Scouts who died there during a camping trip many years ago, but records are sketchy about how they died.

As you might imagine, this means that there are many versions of the tale floating around. Some say that the boys were murdered by their bus driver while others believe they simply went missing in the woods and were never found.

Yet more stories suggest that one scout dropped a kerosene lantern accidentally and started a fire that killed the rest of his troop.

Whatever the true story is, visitors agree that if you visit Boy Scout Lane at night, you are likely to see the light of a solitary lantern bobbing through the trees.

It is said that this is either someone searching for the lost scouts or perhaps the spirit of the one who started the fire.

2. Dartford Cemetery, Green Lake

Dartford Cemetery, Green Lake, Wisconsin

Dartford Cemetery looks very much like a garden, but appearances can be deceiving and this is one of the most haunted cemeteries in Wisconsin.

Perhaps the most well-known ghost that hangs out here is that of Chief Highknocker who apparently drowned in 1911 when he attempted to swim across a river while making his way to Green Lake, which was considered to be a sacred location by the Native Americans.

Another common sighting is soldiers from the Civil War era marching through the cemetery.

There have also been reports of a variety of other paranormal activity including shadow figures, unexplained sounds, orbs of light and one particular phenomenon which occurs when visitors sit on top of a mausoleum on the Southside of the cemetery.

Anyone who sits on top of this particular mausoleum is said to be pushed off of it by the ghost of a child who is buried there.

3. The Grand Opera House, Oshkosh

The Grand Opera House, Oshkosh, Wisconsin

It is said that The Grand Opera House, which was built in 1883, is haunted by Percy Keene who was the stage manager there for several decades.

The paranormal activity seems to be focused on the balcony which is where Percy is most often spotted.

There are also reports of a phantom dog, unexplained footsteps and a strange orange-tinted mist that hovers on the stage!

4. Bloody Bride Bridge, Stevens Point

Bloody Bride Bridge, Stevens Point, Wisconsin

There is a certain stretch of County Highway 66 that is known informally as Bloody Bride Bridge thanks to the specter that is said to haunt it.

Local law enforcement denies that the accident described in the local legend actually occurred, but residents in the area will tell you otherwise.

The story suggests that several years ago a bride and groom were driving home from their wedding when the car spun out of control as they crossed the bridge that carries Highway 66 over the Plover River.

Several years after the fatal accident, a police officer is said to have struck a woman in a wedding gown while driving across the bridge, but when he got out to investigate, there was nothing there.

On turning back to his vehicle, he found the woman, splattered with blood, sitting in the backseat!

Many people since then have seen the bloody bride standing on the bridge on rainy nights and local urban legends say that if you stop on the bridge at midnight, both the bride and her groom will manifest in your back seat!

5. Hotel Hell, Maribel

Hotel Hell, Maribel, Wisconsin

The Maribel Caves Hotel has come to be known as Hotel Hell thanks to some of the strange things that have been going on there throughout the years.

There was originally a health spa on the site which was in operation in the late 1800s, but the hotel was built there in 1900. It was constructed from Limestone blocks giving it an unusual fort-like appearance.

A fire broke out in the hotel in 1985 and it closed down shortly afterward. Since then, the tales of the paranormal surrounding the hotel have continued to grow.

As well as tales of floating objects, apparitions, unsettling feelings, and people being touched by invisible hands, there are also much darker tales.

It is said that a coven of dark witches used the empty building and that they even managed to open a portal to hell allowing the dark entities that now haunt the building to come through.

It seems like Hotel Hell really lives up to its name and it remains one of the most haunted places in Wisconsin.

6. Clark County Insane Asylum, Owen

Clark County Insane Asylum, Owen, Wisconsin

The Clark County Insane Asylum, once an imposing institution for the mentally ill, has a dark history marred by inhumane treatment methods. Patients at the asylum were subjected to barbaric procedures, such as electroshock therapy, ice water submersion, and even bloodletting, all in the name of “curing” their ailments.

As a consequence of these brutal practices, many patients turned against the staff, resulting in violent altercations and even murder within the asylum’s walls. The suffering and anguish that unfolded at the Clark County Insane Asylum has left a lasting imprint on the location.

Today, the abandoned asylum is considered one of the most haunted buildings in Wisconsin. Visitors who dare to explore its crumbling halls have reported a range of chilling experiences.

Apparitions of former patients and staff are said to wander the building, while strange noises echo through the empty corridors. Disembodied voices, believed to be the cries of those who endured unbearable torment, can be heard in the eerie silence.

The haunting legacy of the Clark County Insane Asylum serves as a grim reminder of the inhumanity that once transpired within its walls. Those who venture inside are left with a palpable sense of the suffering that still lingers, making it an unforgettable destination for paranormal enthusiasts and historians alike.

7. Witch Road, Ripon

Witch Road, Ripon, Wisconsin

Callan Road in Ripon, Wisconsin is better known as Witch Road, largely because it is said to be haunted by the spirit of a witch that inhabits the woods surrounding the road.

Those driving the road at night describe how the gnarled branches of the trees cast gruesome shadows in their headlights before taking on the form of a twisted old crone – the witch.

Some have seen strange flashing lights in the woods close to where the remains of an old house believed to have belonged to the witch is located.

This is certainly one of the most haunted locations in Wisconsin and is not for the faint of heart.

8. St Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield

St Joseph's Hospital, Marshfield, Wisconsin

Hospitals are always a good choice when you are seeking out a haunted building and St Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield certainly fits the bill.

The paranormal activity here seems to be more or less restricted to the West Wing of the hospital.

One of the most commonly reported apparitions is a man in a black robe who has been seen by staff and patients alike wandering the halls and coming in and out of patients’ rooms.

Nobody has managed to determine who he is or why he is haunting the hospital.

9. Summerwind Mansion, Land O’Lakes

Summerwind, Land O'Lakes, Wisconsin

Summerwind was once a summer home for Robert P Lamont who was the Secretary of Commerce under the Hoover Administration.

The property was built in 1916 and if the stories are to be believed it was plagued by ghosts from the outset! When Lamont died the property passed through a number of owners before the Hinshaw Family bought it sometime in the 1970s.

They soon began to experience the paranormal activity that Lamont did – shadow figures and strange unexplained noises.

Arnold Hinshaw claimed that he found human remains behind a secret door in the closet, but there is no record of him ever officially reporting it.

The next owner was Raymond Bober who reported seeing a ghost that he believed was an 18th-century explorer named Jonathon Carver.

The manor was eventually abandoned in the 1980s and a lightning strike burned it to the ground.

The remains of Summerwind still can be found hidden away in the woods and many people also claim that they have seen the ghosts and heard disembodied voices in the area.

11. Winnebago Mental Health Institute, Oshkosh

Winnebago Mental Health Institute

Nestled a few miles outside of Oshkosh in the unincorporated town of Winnebago lies the historic Winnebago Mental Health Institute.

Originally known as the Northern Asylum for the Insane and later renamed the Winnebago State Hospital, this institution has been in operation since 1883, serving as a witness to over a century of mental health care practices.

One of the most notorious residents of the institute was John Flammang Schrank, who attempted to assassinate Theodore Roosevelt on October 14th, 1912 in Milwaukee. Schrank’s confinement at the institution is just one of the many dark chapters in its history.

Over the years, the Winnebago Mental Health Institute has gained a reputation for being haunted. It is believed that the spirits of former patients continue to roam its halls long after their deaths. One such patient, Rufus, has been reported to make his presence known in Sherman Hall.

The second floor, where old medical instruments and mannequins are stored, is said to be a hotbed for paranormal activity. Some speculate that these relics of the past have attracted restless spirits, drawn to the energy and memories they hold.

Visitors to the Winnebago Mental Health Institute have reported unsettling experiences, such as disembodied voices, unexplained noises, and even full-bodied apparitions.

This chilling location has earned its spot among the top haunted places in Wisconsin, offering a glimpse into a shadowy past and a dark history of mental health in America.

12. Ambassador Hotel, Milwaukee

The Lamonts eventually fled the mansion, leaving it abandoned for several years.

In the 1970s, a family named Hubert purchased the mansion with the intention of restoring it. However, they soon experienced the same strange occurrences as the Lamonts. The family claimed to have seen apparitions and heard voices in the mansion. The Huberts eventually abandoned the mansion, and it has remained empty ever since.

The Pfister Hotel

The Pfister Hotel , located in downtown Milwaukee, is another famous haunted location in Wisconsin. The hotel was built in 1893 and has a long history of paranormal activity. The most famous ghost at the Pfister is the ghost of Charles Pfister, the hotel’s founder. Guests have reported seeing his ghost in the hotel’s hallways and elevators.

The Pfister Hotel has also been the site of several unexplained events. In 2011, a hotel guest reported that her daughter had been pulled out of bed by an unseen force. The hotel has also been the site of several unexplained fires.

The Rave/Eagles Club

The Rave/Eagles Club , located in Milwaukee, is a music venue that has been the site of several paranormal occurrences. The building was originally built in 1926 as an Eagles Club, and it has a long history of paranormal activity.

One of the most famous ghosts at the Rave/Eagles Club is the ghost of a former Eagles Club member named George. George is said to haunt the building’s basement, where he can be heard playing pool and smoking cigars. The building’s upper floors are also said to be haunted, with guests reporting strange noises and unexplained movements.

Overall, these three locations are some of the most famous haunted houses in Wisconsin. Each location has a unique history and a long list of paranormal activity.

12 Most Haunted Places in Wisconsin | Scary Hauntings in WI

spookytraveler · September 2, 2023

Wisconsin has a dark history of epidemics, unsolved murders and more that have left behind ghostly apparitions and spirits that have not yet left this mortal plane. 

The most haunted places in Wisconsin come with stories of hate and misfortune, and some can’t be explained despite their dark auras. From abandoned buildings to haunted cemeteries, Wisconsin has a lot of hauntings.

So if you are visiting, try the cheddar and check out these scary places. You might catch a glimpse of a tormented ghost or wandering spirit. 

1. Elk Lake, Phillips, Wisconsin

Address: Elk Lake Drive

Elk Lake is a serene 87-acre lake in Wisconsin, that has a more sinister past than one may think. In 1974, a young woman named Mary Schlais was supposedly traveling to an art show in Chicago, but she tragically never made it to her destination. 

haunted house in redgranite wisconsin

Mary’s body was found by Elk Lake and the case remains cold to this day. The fact that her murder is still unsolved may be why locals and visitors believe Mary’s soul is still around the lake.

Mary was only 25 years old when she was brutally stabbed to death by her killer. People report hearing desperate, crying screams when they near the lake at night. Locals believe these screams belong to Mary as she tries to defend herself from her attacker or help solve the murder from beyond the grave.

One specific chilling encounter comes from two fishermen, who said they could both feel the presence of a floating woman dressed in white standing just behind them as they sat on the shores of the lake.  

2. Bloody Bride Bridge, Stevens Point, Wisconsin

Address: 5800 Jordan Road

The Bloody Bride Bridge , officially known as the Highway 66 Bridge, is the site of a tragic accident and has become one of the scariest places in Wisconsin to visit. 

The folklore says that a freshly married bride and groom drove across the bridge on their wedding night and got into a horrible accident. The bride died in the car wreck, and many say her spirit never left the bridge. She wanders back and forth, still wearing her bloody wedding dress. 

Locals say they most frequently see her on rainy nights, so wait until it starts drizzling if you want to catch a glimpse of this unfortunate bride. 

One of the most chilling reports of paranormal activity involves a police officer. The officer drove through a thick fog on the bridge and hit a distraught woman standing in the center of the bridge. When he got out to check on her, she was gone. The officer returned to his car to find the bloody woman in the backseat. She quickly vanished again, but her ghost left an eerie feeling in the officer. 

3. Shaker’s Cigar Bar, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Address: 422 S 2nd Street

Shaker’s Cigar Bar is a swanky joint that delivers you back in time to the 1920s the moments you step inside. The bar does not start with a great history, being built on top of a cemetery near an apple orchard. 

haunted house in redgranite wisconsin

Years after it was constructed, the infamous Al Capone bought the location to set up a speakeasy with alcohol, gambling, and prostitutes. Most, if not all, of the prostitutes, were mere teenagers. One of these girls, a 16-year-old prostitute, was beaten to death and hidden in the wall of the speakeasy until her skeleton was found, decades later. 

Heading to Milwaukee? Book this walking ghost tour to see all the best haunts.

In addition to building on top of a burial ground without removing the remains, the Shaker’s Cigar Bar building has seen a good deal of death and murder. There are too many instances of tragedy to name here, but let’s mention the worst of the worst. 

Two men were murdered in the basement over a dispute involving a card game. A girl playing in the apple orchard next to the cemetery fell out of a tree and broke her neck. And a gentleman that killed a prostitute was supposedly sent to the bottom of a lake by the mob.

There is a lot of creepy things that happened here. It’s no wonder it is one of the most haunted places in Wisconsin.

4. Riverside Cemetery, Appleton, Wisconsin

Address: 714 N Owaissa Street

The hauntings of the Riverside Cemetery in Appleton centers around the life and death of a woman known as Kate Blood. 

The creepiest aspect of this tale is likely the blood that oozes from her tombstone on nights with full moons and the inexplicable warmth radiating from the headstone. People report wispy apparitions floating around the gravesite too.

The stories surrounding Kate Blood range from her being a witch to murdering her husband and children with an ax to her being murdered by her husband. None of these stories are true, as she passed away from tuberculosis in her early twenties. But the legend of oozing blood and wandering spirits persists. The only way to find out is to visit for yourself!

5. Clark County Insane Asylum, Owen, Wisconsin

Address: W4266 County Hwy X

Insane asylums don’t have the best reputations in the US, but this one takes the cake for creepy. Once a bustling asylum, it is now one of Wisconsin’s most notorious abandoned buildings.

haunted house in redgranite wisconsin

The Clark County Insane Asylum used some of the most brutal and cruel techniques for ‘treating’ patients. Their practices included electroshock therapy, ice water submersion, lobotomies, and bloodletting, to name a few. 

There are terrifying stories of patients turning on staff members and murdering them by hand. The horrific events that happened in this hospital left behind sinister energy that visitors feel when they stand inside the walls. Its no wonder this makes the list of the most haunted places in Wisconsin. 

If you visit, expect an immense feeling of dread and possible sightings of people in hospital gowns roaming around and moaning in anguish. 

Today, the Clark County Asylum is one of the most haunted abandoned places in Wisconsin.

6. Dairy Queen, Appleton, Wisconsin

Dairy-queen

Address: 1813 N Richmond Street

There is more than one haunted site in Appleton, Wisconsin, but this haunted Dairy Queen is an odd one. You may wonder: why would someone haunt a DQ? No one knows for sure, but plenty of people report strange happenings when they’re trying to get a scoop of ice cream.

Find a place to stay in Appleton here .

The location was a bar before it was a Dairy Queen, and the owner was driven to sell the location due to the incessant spirits that haunted him. 

Today, people report strange noises like clicking and hushed voices when they visit the location. And DQ employees often complain about electrical abnormalities and other occurrences that indicate the presence of spirits. 

Who knew a Dairy Queen would make the list of the most haunted places in Wisconsin!

7. Maribel Caves Hotel, Maribel, Wisconsin

Address: 15401 County Road

The Maribel Caves Hotel is now a dilapidated structure that people visit in hopes of finding a spirit. It is one the most fascinating haunted places in Wisconsin and on the top of the list of interesting abandoned places.

The stone ruins were once a lavish spa hotel, offering guests fresh spring water. But it mysteriously caught fire in 1985, and then was ravaged by storm damage in 2013, but the hotel still has frequent visitors and has been dubbed ‘Hotel Hell’ by those that experienced scary happenings.

People see ghosts standing in the abandoned hotel’s windows, hear phantom footsteps walking around, and watch objects float around the ruins. 

There are also rumors that a coven of witches successfully opened a portal to Hell inside the ruins of the hotel, adding on to one of the many reasons why it has the nickname Hotel Hell.

8. Grand Opera House, Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Address: 100 High Ave

The Grand Opera House in Oshkosh is said to be haunted by the ghost of a former stage manager, Percy Keene, as well as a four-legged friend. 

Keene is frequently seen walking around the theater in the balconies. People say he looks like he still works there but never interacts with people. 

haunted house in redgranite wisconsin

The Grand Opera House is also home to a phantom dog that people see wandering about, and it even appears on stage during some performances before disappearing. 

People also hear footsteps when no one is behind them and hushed conversations when they are alone. If you visit, you may see the ominous orange mist that appears randomly in the theater. 

9. The Octagon House, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

Octagon House, Fond du Lac

Address: 276 Linden St

The Octagon House is an unusual home with eight sides and many, many secret passageways and hidden tunnels. The man who built it was staunchly anti-slavery and built the house this way to help ex-slaves escape to freedom in Canada.

At the time, there was also a hostile tribe of indigenous people nearby that the townspeople feared would revolt at any moment. This is the other reason for hiding places and escape routes. 

Those who visit the house today are joined by friendly spirits that like to make noises and even touch people with icy cold hands. These spirits are likely people that once lived in the extraordinary house and never wanted to leave.

At least seven children died inside the home, and people often believe these are playful spirits. 

10. Siren Bridge, Siren, Wisconsin

haunted house in redgranite wisconsin

Address: 6517 Lynch Bridge Road

A truly tragic story, the Siren Bridge is the site of a family death. In the 1980s, a mother, father, and daughter were driving when they lost control of the car due to icy roads. The car flew off the bridge, and they all drowned in the water. 

Eventually, it was discovered the family was Rick, Rose, and Jody Kringle, and paranormal investigators located the car, proving the tale to be true.

People that drive over the bridge report strange happenings with their radio. It shuts off and then comes back on, and they hear a little girl yelling for help saying, “Mommy, I can’t get out!” over and over again through sobs. 

More than one visitor has reported this occurrence, making it an enticing location for those with a taste for the paranormal. But oddly enough, the location of the accident is not a bridge, but a narrow path that runs right along a watery marsh. So don’t be disappointed if you can’t find a bridge!

11. Summerwind (Lamont Mansion), ​​Vilas County, Wisconsin

Address: West Bay Lake

If you know anything about the history of haunted Wisconsin, then you’ve probably heard of the Summerwind Mansion in Vilas County, Wisconsin. The Summerwind Mansion is of the most interesting abandoned places in Wisconsin.

Summerwind Mansion

The building was formerly known as the Lamont Mansion and burned down in 1988, supposedly due to a lightning strike. Some rumors accuse Town Board Members and police officers of lighting the mansion on fire to stop teenage parties. 

But the creepiness of the mansion goes back even further. It was a fishing lodge, and a man named Patterson Lamont purchased the property, selling it shortly after out of fear. He claimed to have seen many spirits and even shot at one that scared him. 

Next up were Arnold and Ginger Hinshaw, who only lasted six months living at the property. They saw shapes and shadows moving about the house, and Arnold’s car would often burst into flames when he would leave for work. Eventually, Arnold suffered a nervous breakdown, and Ginger attempted suicide before they finally left. 

There are no deaths related to the property that would explain the ghostly presence, but people that go there believe the spirit is not friendly and does not want people visiting. A hostile ghost would explain the horrible experiences owners and residents had inside the mansion. 

12. Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Pfister Hotel, Wisconsin

Address: 424 E Wisconsin Avenue

The Pfister Hotel is one of the most haunted places in Wisconsin. Despite the plethora of spooky tales, no one knows who is haunting the Pfister hotel or why. 

It is a hotel frequented by MLB and NBA teams when they have games scheduled in Wisconsin, but many players report strange and spooky occurrences in the hotel.

Specifically, baseball players seem to experience the most paranormal activity in the hotel. Many reports knock on their door at strange hours but open it to find no one there. Players also report furniture moving inexplicably and even ghostly apparitions of an elderly man in the hallways. 

Disembodied voices and electrical anomalies seem to be a theme, with one baseball player describing an odd occurrence with his iPod. It began to switch on and off by itself and then vibrated wildly until he picked it up. But when he put it back down, it would eerily begin vibrating again. 

Staff denies the hauntings saying the hotel offers nothing but excellent hospitality, but one too many baseball players have been spooked for anyone to believe that. 

If you’re interested in visiting Milwaukee sometime soon, you can book a tour to check out the Pfister Hotel and other famous haunted places in the city.

THE MOST HIGH OCTANE HAUNTED HOUSE IN WI!

Terror on the fox.

Green Bay, Wisconsin

Terror on the Fox is one of the most unique Wisconsin haunted houses. Get ready to walk into your scariest nightmares!

Terror on the Fox has three haunted attractions that guests can choose from. First, take a ride on the Terror Train. You’ll board and head to Fox River, where you’re bound to run into all sorts of ghastly creatures.

Once you’ve reached the scariest part of the park, you can make your way to The Boogeyman. Most kids have trouble escaping the fear of something supernatural lurking in their bed or closet. Everything is scarier in the dark, after all. But what if the monster in the dark was real, and believing in him makes him stronger? Generations of the past were telling the truth about these monsters, but no one believed them. Now, you’ll experience the tale of the Jensen family massacre on Blackthorn Drive. Was The Boogeyman involved?

You can also go to The Spirit of Halloween. When summer ends and the leaves turn brown, it’s said that a veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. The witch of these woods has cast a spell to summon the spirits of the underworld so they can cross over. They’ll take the form of various objects in the town, including the Halloween decorations. The witch commands her army of crops and flesh to seek out revenge on the people who casted her out. Will you survive her wrath?

While you’re at Terror on the Fox , you can also visit their escape room, Fight for Your Life. A catastrophic plague has poisoned you and your team, and you only have five minutes to find the antidote to cure the disease. Will you escape with your life?

These attractions are some of the creepiest in all of Wisconsin. Do you dare step inside?

CHECK OUT THE DETAILS IN THESE ELABORATE WISCONSIN HAUNTED HOUSES!

SCREAMIN’ ACRES HAUNTED HOUSES

Stoughton, Wisconsin

Screamin’ Acres Haunted Houses has four haunted attractions all included in one ticket price!

First, check out Slaughterhaus, a local meat processing facility that has always brought the most delicious cuts to the local market. All was well, until the facility began an expansion. Workers found a plastic chemical tote with an extremely powerful odor radiating out of the liquid leaking from a hole. The entire crew was near the tote when it fell six feet to the ground, spilling the contents everywhere. Everyone got wet from the mysterious liquid, and they started coughing uncontrollably. Their saliva began turning black, their eyes grew bloodshot, and their demeanor entirely changed. Their veins were fueled by blackened blood and their skin flushed vile shades of yellow and gray. They were no longer the jolly crew of butchers they once were… Now, this band of vicious, bloodthirsty killers are waiting for anyone to make them a fresh cut of meat!

Next, enter Crawl Space . A doomsday prepper was working to build an elaborate DIY bunker system under his home in the countryside. Upon excavation, he noticed a powerful odor coming from a strange chemical that appeared to be leaking from above. He halted excavation in that sector of his tunnels but the fumes grew stronger. He eventually began to spend more time underground, turning his tunnel systems into more of a den than a doomsday solution. Eventually, he stopped coming out entirely, allowing for his surface property to become dilapidated and overgrown. The man was presumed missing and his property was foreclosed on and sold to new owners. Well, aren’t they in for a surprise?

You can also make your way to The Last Resort in this haunted house in Milwaukee. A former Nazi who specialized in chemical warfare was pardoned and lived alone in an old house in the countryside as he grew old. Eventually, his demons came back to haunt him. His days of isolation grew long, and he tried to cover his tracks by burying his chemical creations throughout the surrounding farmland and woods. Growing mad with insanity, he developed hallucinations and began to see his tortured victims. The dark shadows of his home were now full of the people he once hurt. His visions came to an end when he was found dead in his home. Years slipped by and he was forgotten. However, he hasn’t left, and his evil has only just begun. His voice is still heard chaotically yelling throughout the house. Can you escape him?

Screamin’ Acres Haunted Houses also has two new attractions coming soon: Side Effects, a 3D experience, and DEATHTRAP, which looks to amp horror to new levels. Don’t miss out!

Haunted Wisconsin FAQ

What is the most haunted place in wisconsin.

It’s difficult to measure a haunting, but based on the factors such as the age, uniqueness, notoriety, and continuing paranormal activity of some places, the title of the “most haunted place in Wisconsin” would have to go to Summerwind Mansion , Sheboygan Asylum , the Pfister Hotel, or the entire town of Whitewater.

What is the most haunted hotel in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin has numerous haunted hotels and B&Bs. The one with the most notable encounters is probably the Pfister Hotel, as is has become notorious among professional baseball players, musicians and other celebrities for the eerie, unexplained phenomena they experiencing there while staying in Milwaukee .

What are the best haunted places to visit in Wisconsin?

Many haunted locations are private residences or businesses, and therefore not accessible to the public, but thankfully some of Wisconsin’s most haunted places are – and they may even conduct their own ghost tours . Some of the best haunted places to visit due to accessibility and experience include Shaker’s Cigar Bar , Milwaukee Public Museum, the USS Cobia submarine in Manitowoc, Taliesin in Spring Green, Sanatorium Hill and Bascom Hill in Madison, the Peshtigo Fire Museum , and Holy Hill .

What is the haunted asylum in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin has several haunted places associated with asylums. The most well known is the Sheboygan Asylum , which has been closed for some time now but is open for haunted tours. The spooky hospital was featured in an episode of the Travel Channel series Destination Fear . Next is the Winnebago Mental Health Institute, which is remains haunted by the ghosts of the original facility called the Northern State Hospital for the Insane. Asylum Hill in Eau Claire is another spot where spirits reputedly still linger even though the hospital itself was torn down years ago. The Havenwood Apartments in Lake Geneva are rumored to be inhabited by the lost souls of the Oakwood Sanitarium that once stood in the exact same place.

What is the most haunted town in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin has a lot of ghosts, but the most haunted town has to be Whitewater . Known as Second Salem , spiritualists at the Morris Pratt Institute pierced the veil with their experiments in conjuring and speaking with the dead that many believe have left the town deeply haunted to this day. A close second is St. Nazianz , location of JFK Prep, where an excommunicated priest and his followers built their own community where they could freely conduct the “mystical” and “heretical” works the church condemned them for. Some believe Father Oschwald cursed the town upon his death.

Wisconsin’s Most Haunted Locations

Below, you’ll find a list of Wisconsin’s paranormal hot spots. From haunted houses to abandoned cemeteries, we’ve searched high and low to find the most terrifying places in the state. We’ve included their haunted history as well as the most common paranormal activity witnessed in each location. 

1. The Pfister Hotel: Milwaukee

When the Pfister Hotel first opened its doors back in 1893, it was billed as the “Grand Hotel of the West.” 130 years later, it’s still one of the most luxurious hotels in the Midwest complete with a grand marble staircase, fancy chandeliers, and Old World decor. It has also hosted every U.S. president since William McKinley as well as many baseball teams that come to play against the Milwaukee Brewers. 

However, it’s also known as one of the most haunted hotels in the country, particularly if you happen to be a professional baseball player! Some of the paranormal activity experienced includes apparitions, objects randomly moving, disembodied voices, moving lights, cols chills, and electrical anomalies. The first reports of these strange events started in the early 2000s. 

Some of the ghost sightings have been linked to the original owner who died before the hotel was finished. According to eyewitness accounts, he appears to be quite friendly and welcoming unless you’re on the opposing baseball team! The Pfister Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places. You can either spend the night there or visit one of the onsite eateries or bars. Keep an eye out for the ghost of Charles Pfister as he comes out to check on guests. 

2. Shaker’s Cigar Bar: Milwaukee

Located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, Shaker’s Cigar Bar is well known for three things—drinks, cigars, and spirits. The building housing the bar was constructed in 1894. It originally served as a cooperage house for the Schlitz Brewery where they made enormous barrels that were used to brew and transport beer. It was then used as a distribution center starting in 1905. During Prohibition, it was converted into a speakeasy and brothel owned by none other than the infamous Chicago-based gangster Al Capone.

Shaker’s Cigar Bar opened in this historic building in 1986. The bar has an amazing retro feel that makes you feel like you have just walked back in time. It is also one of the many bars that serial killer Jeffery Dahmer frequented during the 1990s when he was looking for his victims. 

While the bar easily makes you feel like you’ve stepped into another era, some of the other more spirited bar patrons look like they have been there for decades. Because some of them have! Like loyal, long-term customers, the ghosts can be seen hanging around the property at all hours of the day. Some of the most famous ghosts that are frequently seen in the bar include Molly, an 18-year-old girl who was working in the brothel when she was brutally murdered, and Elizabeth, an 8-year-old girl who enjoys playing tricks on unexpected visitors in the women’s bathroom. 

If you want a chance to meet some of the resident ghosts yourself, you can grab a drink at the bar or join one of the ghost tours that they offer throughout the day. These tours take you to the bar’s upper floors where the brothel used to operate as well as the basement where two skeletons are encased in concrete. You can also join a tour of the local area that focuses on Jeffrey Dahmer and his brutal crimes.

3. Boy Scouts Lane: Stevens Point

When you first hear the term Boy Scouts, you may imagine late-night jamborees and merit badges; however, Wisconsin’s Boy Scouts Lane has a much darker side than that. According to local legend, this dead-end road near Stevens Point was actually named in memory of several Boy Scouts who died there. In reality, the name actually came from the fact that it was on land that was once owned by the Boy Scouts of America who wanted to build a summer camp there. 

While the story surrounding the origins of the name seems largely fictional, the area has become the location of many paranormal investigations. People have reported seeing a solitary lantern bobbing amongst the trees as if it’s being carried by a lost Boy Scout. Unfortunately, the land around this small street is now privately owned and it is now off-limits to the public. 

4. Bloody Bridge: Highway 66 (Stevens Point)

Another haunted spot in Stevens Point, Bloody Bridge, also known as the Highway 66 Bridge, was rumored to be the spot of a fatal car accident. A woman was tragically killed on her wedding night. Since then, people have reported seeing her ghost wandering back and forth across the bridge, still wearing her bloody wedding gown. People have also seen a ghostly fog suddenly appear, even on clear nights.  

5. Summerwind Mansion: Land O’Lakes

The ruins of mansions are always a little bit creepy. It gets decidedly more so when you know the mansion was supposed to be very haunted. Built in the early 20th century as either a family home or a fishing lodge, the Summerwind Mansion, also known as the Lamont Mansion, was purchased by Robert Latterson Lamont in 1916. 

The ghost stories of the property began when the property was owned by Lamont. According to one legend, the Lamonts suddenly saw a ghost appear in the kitchen. In a panic, Lamont grabbed a pistol and fired two shots. This sent the ghost scurrying back into the cellar that it had just emerged from. Clearly uninterested in sharing their home with a stranger, the Lamonts decided to abandon the house shortly after. 

The house was empty for decades before being purchased by Arnold and Ginger Hinshaw in the 1970s. While they were attempting to renovate the house, constructor workers and contractors would suddenly quit halfway through the job. The Hinshaws decided to finish the work themselves, and it’s claimed that their youngest daughter found a human skull and a handful of black hair in a hidden crawl space. They continued to see ghosts in the house and heard footsteps and disembodied voices throughout the house. After displaying some strange behavior, the family decided to abandon the house as well.

The house has been abandoned since the 1970s, but many people who have ventured to the ruins have reported paranormal activity. In 1988, the house was struck by lightning and ravaged by fire. Little was left behind besides a handful of ruins. Since the ruins are located on private land, they’re currently closed to the public. 

6. Dartford Cemetery: Green Lake

Located in the idyllic town of Green Lake, the decrepit Dartford Cemetery is one of Wisconsin’s most haunted places. This is where many of Wisconsin’s first settlers were laid to rest as well as Chief Highknocker, the last Native American chief to rule over the area. Sadly, many of the people buried there are children who died as a result of disease. Meanwhile, Chief Highknocker died while attempting to swim across the Fox River in 1911. Some locals claim it was during a drunken dare, but considering that he would have been 90 years old when he died, this part of the story seems doubtful. 

At first glance, the cemetery looks a little bit like a garden that’s been neglected for generations. If that didn’t already make it feel spooky enough, there is also an old mausoleum on the grounds that is rumored to be the hangout spot for many ghosts who enjoy pushing people who dare to sit on the mausoleum. (In all honesty, I don’t blame them. Sitting on a crypt is a little rude!).

7. Wood County Insane Asylum: Marshfield

Lying just a short drive northwest of Milwaukee, you’ll find the Wood County Insane Asylum. Built in 1909, the original complex was an expensive site located on 640 acres of land. Today, although only one building still exists, this is considered one of the most haunted places in the state. 

One of the most spine-chilling sites at this former insane asylum is an old tunnel that was used to connect the main building to a nearby farm where the patients worked to help provide food for the asylum. The tunnel is said to be haunted by a former hospital employee, two patients, and a young girl with dark hair. People have reported hearing strange voices and seeing ghosts and orbs in photos that they took while there. The asylum finally closed in 1974 and virtually all of the buildings were torn down. The land that the asylum sat on is now owned by Marshfield Scrap and it is currently closed to the public. 

8. Clarke County Asylum

Considering the amount of pain and suffering that generally happens in a mental asylum, it probably comes as no surprise that Wisconsin is home to a second haunted asylum. The Clarke County Asylum was built in 1920 to provide long-term care for patients with debilitation mental health issues and by 1930, there were more than 300 patients living there. 

As part of their treatment, many patients underwent electroshock therapy, bloodletting, and submersion in ice water. According to local lore, a group of patients revolted against this inhumane treatment and attacked and killed some of the staff members.

Now known as the Clarke County Rehabilitation & Living Center, this former asylum still provides long-term care for the elderly and for people recovering from surgery or injuries. Although it’s not open to the public, visitors and patients have reported hearing odd sounds and disembodied voices and have even witnessed apparitions. 

9. Octagon House: Fond du Lac

Once a stop on the Underground Railroad and a spot for bootlegging during Prohibition, the Octagon House has played a pivotal role in the local history of Fond du Lac. Constructed in 1856, the property is one of two octagon-shaped houses in the city and features a conical roof, a wrap-around porch, and twelve rooms inside the eight-sided building. 

There are also numerous passageways, secret rooms, and hidden spaces that were incorporated into the building as a form of defense against Native American attacks but turned out to be very useful for runaway slaves making a dash toward the freedom of Canada. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places thanks to its unique design and historic value. 

After the original owner died during the Civil War, his wife and children continued to live in the property. At the turn of the 20th century, the house became a rental unit, and many families called it home for the next 70 years. By the late 1970s, the property had become dilapidated and required a huge investment to restore. Although it seemed like it was going to be demolished, the local community stepped in and saved the property. It was eventually turned into a museum and event space.

This turned out to be a blessing for the resident ghosts living there who loved to make friends with their visitors. People reported hearing strange noises, seeing apparitions, and feeling like something or someone was touching them with cold hands. After being open to the public for 40 years, the house was eventually put up for sale. Although it is no longer accessible to ghost hunters, this could change again in the future. 

10. Brumder Mansion: Milwaukee

Blending Victorian and Gothic architecture styles, Brumder Mansion was constructed in the early 1900s to serve as the family home of the Brumders, a wealthy German-American family. Standing three stories tall, this red brick mansion included a massive ballroom, ornate furnishings, and spacious rooms. It was sold to Sam Pick in 1927 and was soon converted into a speakeasy and brothel. In 1932, it was sold once again and turned into a boarding house for a nearby company. It changed hands again in the 1940s and ironically, this former brothel became a residence for pastors working at the nearby Lutheran church.

In 1997, it was restored and Brumder Mansion now operates as a bed-and-breakfast. This makes it easy for visitors to get a first-hand encounter with the house’s paranormal activity. It’s believed to be haunted by at least three spirits. One of these is the ghost of a woman who is often seen in the Gold Suite and who seems to have a major disdain for dogs. She would often bother guests who were staying there with their pets. 

Meanwhile, the ghost of George Brumder, Jr. is said to move objects around the room, and visitors have heard strange footsteps, seen shadows, and felt cold spots when they are in George’s Suite. There is also a playful spirit that people think may be that of a young girl or boy. 

11. Nelsen’s Hall Bitters Pub: Washington Island

Opened in 1899 as a dance hall, Nelson’s Hall Bitters Pub is the oldest continuously operating tavern in Wisconsin. The historic tavern found an interesting workaround during Prohibition that enabled them to sell alcohol legally. This consisted of only selling Angostura Bitters which could also be freely purchased at a pharmacy. This tradition has lasted long after Prohibition ended, and even today, you can get inducted into the tavern’s Bitters Club if you’re able to drink a shot of it straight. 

The ghost stories surrounding this historic bar are generally linked to Tom Nelson, the bar’s former owner. Nelson died in the apartment of the club decades ago, but it’s claimed that his spirit still lingers. Guests and staff have reported feeling a creepy feeling and sensing an unknown presence while there.

12. Maribel Caves Hotel : Maribel

Also known as Hotel Hell, the Maribel Caves Hotel certainly has a reputation that precedes it! This haunted hotel was built in 1900 to serve as a resort where people could enjoy boating and bathing in thermal waters. It was modeled after the medieval castles of Europe complete with a rugged stone facade. 

The hotel was a popular spot for gangsters during Prohibition, and Al Capone and John Dillinger were often spotted there. However, it was also plagued by financial troubles and tragedy as soon as it opened. Unsurprisingly, the ghost stories and urban legends surrounding the property soon followed. Some locals claim that the property is full of the ghosts of people who’ve died there, including the ghost of a child killed on the roof.

Although parts of the hotel have been ravaged by fire and a 2013 tornado, you can still see its hulking ruins rising up over the countryside. However, since the ruins are unstable, it’s dangerous to visit them.

The Insanity Haunted House is a combination of a haunted house and a haunted fun house. It has several interactive features, including closing walls, spinning rooms, crooked rooms, and scary clowns throughout.

The Abandoned Haunted House Complex is the sister property of Burial Chamber and it’s just as frightening. Aside from their axe-throwing attraction, it’s full-on haunted house from the moment you enter. The complex has three haunted houses: Ambush, Hysteria, and Stalker. A visit to the complex is sure to have you running scared for your life at some point. The Ambush Haunted House is exactly as it sounds—actors popping out around all corners and loud noises to startle you into oblivion. The Hysteria Haunted House will mess with your mind by using misdirection and illusions to frighten and confuse you. Finally, the chase is on in the Stalker Haunted House, where actors lurk around every corner to create the feeling of being hunted. 

Evil Falls House of Tormented Souls, Eagle River

215 S. Railroad St. Fridays and Saturdays through October and Halloween, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. $13 per person

The farthest north on our list is the Evil Falls House of Tormented Souls in Eagle River. This traditional haunted house focuses on the story of “The Soul Collector,” Marcus Dread. He and his dark bride, Karena D. Cay (nice pun!) do what they can to feed on the souls that enter Evil Falls. The experience includes live actors who love to startle visitors, dark and narrow halls, strobe lights, fog, blood, gore, and more.

Wisconsin, the Badger State, was well known for the fur trade of the past. Furs which kept people not only warm but dry, were traded so extensively that they almost extinct the animals. The fur trade so lucrative, the Indians, French, Americans, and English battled over the territory and there were many forts built along the waterways to protect this trade as well as the mineral "lead" for ammunition. The mining industry now taking hold, produced a wealth and greed like no others. With wealth the greed forced the Native Americans to move by the taking of all the land in Wisconsin from the Natives. Most Native Americans were coerced into moving on reservations out of the state. The Sauk Indian tribe resisted, Chief Black Hawk led the opposition and eventually his tribe was slaughtered with almost no mercy given to any member of his tribe. Over the years his tribe of 1500 fell to only about 150 survivors. Most murdered although they tried to surrender. These years in history left many souls angered, in addition to the Native Americans, the vast numbers of soldiers joined the Union Army to fight for abolition. Over 90,000 men went into battle for our new country. These soldiers fought in the most horrific battles, death, dysentery, starvation, dismemberment, horrors of war tormented the ones who survived. The sight of the violent bloody death stained the psyche and will forever haunt the ones who returned, souls which do not know they should have passed over, wander aimlessly. Fortunately, their souls are gathered and kept restrained until their energy and anger release them from their bondage to let them roam free during the tenth month of every year after the fall harvest.

Souls have converged in the many haunted houses, haunted hayrides, haunted mazes, ghost tours, paranormal activity, attractions and more. Attracted by Halloween, they converge in the portals that are opened during Halloween. The intense energy they expel, helps the living keep them at bay for the remainder of the year.
