During this spine-tingling evening, Pamela Bannos of the Hidden Truths Project digs up Lincoln Park’s hidden haunted history and the lingering legacy of the Chicago city cemetery. 

This is the second lecture Bannos gave at the Chicago History Museum exploring the underground history of Lincoln Park. The first lecture is archived here.

Chicago is one of the most haunted cities in the world, boasting a colorful past filled with eerie events that range from the truly chilling to the light-of-heart. In celebration of Halloween, the Museum hosted cemetery tours, dinners, seminars, and other events that showcased Chicago's very real and often shocking past!

Unwrap the eerie history of our neighborhood at the Museum. You might not see dead people, but you will certainly be surrounded by them.
