Old Ghosts Never Die

1 Mar

250px-Hull_House_2Today I received a link from an old friend.  Rich and I attended the University of Illinois sometime between Jane Addams starting Hull House as a social agency in Chicago and the breakup of the Beatles.  Hull House sat right there on the Chicago campus, though we never paid much attention to it when we were students.  But Rich has recollected the place and times of this iconic institution better than I, so I refer you to the link to his story:  http://www.libraryofinspiration.com/music_2010s_highviolet.htm .

Turns out Hull House is quite haunted–legend has it from a “devil baby” Jane took in, ultimately serving as the literary inspiration for the novel Rosemary’s Baby.  But more likely it was an unfortunate deformed child who Jane adopted and shielded from the public.  You know how public’s are; quickly the devil baby stories proliferated.

Flash to the recent future:  Rich had the occasion to attend a meeting at Hull House not too long ago, and I had urged him to bring his camera and take some snaps.  He said all was normal, with the exception of one pic shot in Jane’s former bedroom.  I asked him to send me a copy.  Hopefully he will, so I can publish it on this page…

    Can’t wait to see that photo! I have some photos of my own taken at a haunted jail in Ottawa – I stayed overnight by myself and without knowing it, captured some spirits on camera. You just never know who is in the room with you in a haunted place. As for age…don’t sweat it guys – 60 is the new ’50’!! Paul, thanks for following my blog; I’ll be back to read more of your stories.

    Actually, I was at the U of Illinois in Chicago even earlier; 1967 to be exact. During my senior year in ’68, I and my room mates lived in a haunted house near Lincoln Park on the North Shore. It was at the time a 100 year old brownstone that I could write a book about…

    It sonds like that house will be one to investigate, but it sounds like it is not allowed. Looking forward to seeing the picture your friend took, if he is going to send it. Now Paul you are letting on to your age if you went to the collage the in Chicago just prior to the Beatles break up. Terry
