Lived in Alton, Illinois for nearly 12 years. Met Amy there.  We married and lived in an 1835 townhouse that some said was haunted.

Amy said she saw apparitions in the house.  I laughed it off even though I sometimes felt liked someone was watching us.

According to some, Alton is one of the most haunted towns in America.  I recently came across these two excerpts from the SyFy channel that dealt with our former hometown.  Amy directed a play in the Mineral Springs Hotel, which is featured in the first segment, and I drove by the McPike Mansion nearly every day.

Fact or fantasy?  Good question.  Scary one too.
