Those of you not from Illinois or if you are from Illinois, aren't around the NW suburbs of Chicago probably know nothing of this house. Certainly not threatening this house was converted into the sleepy town's police station. That is were the limited knowledge at perception would end. In reality, The Stickney Mansion is haunted. As the legend goes Mr. Stickney made this house with the conviction of making the house with no 90-degree corners. In truth, he practiced "Spiritualism" which was based on corners keeping spirits caught in a room. This was important since he and his wife practiced many seances in the house. In legend, he found one corner made in his house and hung himself, but in reality, he died of heart complications facing the corner.
The house went from owner to owner with reports of paranormal activity, until finally became the property of the town of Bull Valley in 1985 and became a police station from there. Several officers have quit over the activity, and the police chief even has a tale or two himself to tell over his experiences.
As I was getting ready to shoot this my battery died, how so ever it was half charged for that matter, and while there was some color correction done to this HDR the flares that you'll see around the photo is just that. This does challenge me to make an effort to take photos of certain haunted places and key areas. That, however, will have to wait until the end of Project116*3. Thanks for stopping by!
