Ghost Tours of Cedarburg
Downtown Cedarburg resembles a charming hamlet, what with its buildings of brick, stone, and cross-timber frames dating back to the mid-19th century. But these picturesque residences, mills, bridges, and other historic structures belie dark happenings that some feel have left specters behind. Cedarburg native Lauren Goecks and fellow guide Allison Glysch unveil these local legends through Ghost Tours of Cedarburg, leading both ghost tours and paranormal investigations throughout the historic downtown area. Cloaked in theatrical costumes and carrying lanterns to light the way, Lauren and Tim guide guests to 10 reportedly haunted locations, each connected to events such as a blacksmith's murder, the 1918 flu outbreak, and a prostitution ring. They also periodically gain access to historic buildings for small-group paranormal investigations with devices such as K-2 meters.
