Wind Lake Haunted Houses and Places
Milwaukee Haunted Places >> Wind Lake
A Beautiful Spot for Life-Ending Disaster
Wind Lake is a beautiful little town in Southeastern Wisconsin which sits beside a small, peaceful lake by the same name; however, multiple reports throughout history have claimed the lake as a haunted spot which may have a more sinister history than previously believed. In 1936, a 15-year-old girl named May Gaulke was reportedly swimming in Wind Lake before she suddenly went underwater and never came back up again. Her death was pronounced an accidental drowning by the authorities, though perhaps it was not entirely accidental – the only other person with her at the time of her death was her fiancé, who was later cleared of all blame in her drowning. As the years went by, multiple incidents surfaced of seemingly experienced swimmers drowning in Wind Lake in the same manner as May. Perhaps there is some connection with these deaths, and the ghost of May Gaulke herself is getting revenge on the man who murdered her by taking new victims one by one?
