The Scariest Thing You Didn’t Know About Milwaukee
Home to serial killers Jeffrey “The Milwaukee Cannibal” Dahmer and Walter Ellis, the North Side Strangler, Milwaukee has plenty of macabre history. Justice found Dahmer and Ellis, but how many more like them went free? Nearly a century ago Molly Brennan fell victim to a depraved killer who was never identified and never brought to justice. Brennan was a Jazz Age flapper, a politician’s daughter and one of Walker’s Point’s highest paid bordello hostesses. Her short life came to a brutal end one night, and her burnt bones buried within the walls of her brothel’s penthouse amid those of sheep, goats and dogs. Was it the work of a religious zealot, attempting to cleanse her soul by fire? Or did she recognize a powerful friend of her politically connected father? No one knows, but those courageous enough to spend the night in her bed say she burns the walls every night.
Haunted Places to Tour near Milwaukee
Pro athletes are notoriously creeped out by Milwaukee’s Pfister Hotel. Individual players, as well as entire teams, have refused to stay there. Countless others tell of flickering lights, moving furniture and ghostly apparitions. Most likely, it’s just the ghost of Charles Pfister walking the grounds, making sure every guest is well cared for.
Shaker’s Cigar Bar in Walker’s Point is home to Elizabeth, the ghost of an 8-year-old girl who died in the 19th Century when she fell from an apple tree. Shy around adults, she’s most likely to strike up a conversation with kids closer to her age. You can also spend the night in doomed Molly Brennan’s old penthouse if you dare.
Five or six spirits are said to haunt the Brumder Mansion, from a practical joking doctor to a Scottish maintenance man. The ghosts seem to like the new owners and don’t go out of their way to scare off guests, but they can get playful when the mood strikes. Maybe they’re just fans of a good murder mystery play.
