The Scariest Thing You Didn’t Know About Green Bay
A jealous heart and an unfaithful wife are a deadly combination. Fevered passions combined to mar the opening of the Green Bay Theatre, later the Orpheum, the Fox Wisconsin and the Vic until it closed in the 1980s. In 1900, as they prepared to open William Gillette’s Because She Loved Him So, the romantic leads of the play began their own backstage romance. Rumors quickly swirled around the upstart town of 5000 and soon reached the woman’s bitter, controlling husband. On a cold October night, the first flurries of an early winter in the air, the man caught his wife and her lover in the balcony seats, shooting her dead where she lay and gunning down her paramour as he leapt to the floor below. Knowing his life as he knew it was over, he turned the gun on himself. Shadows still leap from the balcony to this day, and they say in the back studio to beware a beautiful woman’s voice asking why she loved him so.
Haunted Places to Tour near Green Bay
Northeast of Green Bay, between the tip of Door County and Washington Island, lies the most dangerous fresh water strait in North America. Called porte de morts by early French fur traders, Death’s Door remains deadly to this day. Legend has it the name dates back to wars between the Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk, when the waters of Lake Michigan rose and swallowed the warriors of both tribes. In 1769, the French explorer Robert de la Salle sailed his 45-ton barque Le Griffon into Green Bay Harbor. An Iroquois priest cursed the massive ship as it passed through Death’s Door. After leaving harbor, the Griffon was never seen again. Even the most experienced boaters are reluctant to test the mercurial waters of Death’s Door, fearing the angry warrior spirits who churn below.
