On Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Elgin tour-goers trudge through a five-hour guided tour of haunted cemeteries of Elgin. Unlike haunted history tours, this allows customers to conduct their own paranormal investigations inside the cemeteries themselves in the dead of night.
Due to the intense nature of the tour, guests must be older than 16; guests between the ages of 14 and 16 can attend if accompanied by an adult. All guests must register on Haunted Hometowns' website before attending an event.
On tours from Haunted Hometowns, each traveler clutches an EMF meter, nervously waiting for a flash that detects electromagnetic fields, thus signaling the presence of paranormal activity. Meanwhile, a seasoned storyteller imparts gripping tales of murder, local legends, and ghostly encounters. Based on the books of ghost historian and storyteller Diane Ladley, Haunted Hometowns tours build on her four decades of research, as well as her intimate knowledge of the area and its rumored spectral inhabitants. Guides encourage participants to tote along their cameras so that they’re prepared to preserve the spooky sights along the way and catch photo-bombing ghosts in the act.
