Appleton Wisconsin, located at the northernmost point of Lake Winnebago, has history dating back to the 1830's. For hundreds of years before that, The Fox Valley Indians settled here. Nestled among the Victorian architecture and beauty of the Fox River, which flows through the city, lies a history in which events are not normal, but paranormal. Reports of ghosts and things that go "bump in the night" are common in most cities, and Appleton is no exception. From Houdini to the no longer existing Outagamie Asylum, the ghost stories of Appleton have been passed down through generations of residents, sending a chill down the spines of those who dared to listen by candlelight, sitting around the campfire, or in complete darkness.
Join us as we look deeper into Appleton's paranormal past and even current haunts on a 90 minute tour of the city. You will be treated to stories of the strange, macabre, and downright terrifying!
