The Scariest Thing You Didn’t Know About Waukesha
The abandoned Ravensholme property lies southwest of Waukesha, along River Road. John Hille built the old farm out of stones he picked from his fields and timbers he struck himself. John and his wife Magdalena had six children and a prosperous farm until Magdalena came down with an undiagnosed illness. Rather than treat her, the doctor mistakenly poisoned Magdalena. Hille, struck with grief, refused to eat and soon allowed himself to die, but his vengeful spirit lived on. He claimed his youngest son first, withering the invalid boy to his death. Two more sons were killed in farm accidents, while the eldest was crushed under the hooves of his father’s prized horses.
Only one son and his only daughter, William and Hulda, remained, though William could never shake the feeling that someone was after him. His fear and paranoia spilled over one day when he suddenly killed a farmhand with a shotgun blast to the face. William proceeded to the barn where he slaughtered five horses and a dog, then turned back to his home.
Finding his sister dead with slashed wrists and an empty bottle of arsenic, he carefully balanced the shotgun in his lap and groped for the trigger with a toe. They say the ghastly Hilles still tend the overgrown farm, and will take on any farmhand unlucky enough to stumble onto their work.
Haunted Places to Tour near Waukesha
Spend a chilly autumn night watching the fog roll of Phantom Lake near Mukwonago. As the silver mists spill ashore you can witness the tragic tableau as two Winnebago warriors battle to the death over the daughter of a Sac chief. The shadow of the maiden stands aside but does not watch. She commits her body to the lake spirit rather than choose between her warring lovers.
The spirit of a teenage girl, thrown from a vehicle into an oncoming train, still haunts the bridge over the now-overgrown railroad along St. Paul Avenue. She’s said to take the form of a dull green light as she tries to spin cars over the brink.
