Based on four decades of historical research, Haunted Hometowns’ two-hour walking tour of Naperville leads prospective ghost hunters through apparition-rich locations. Equipped with EMF ghost meters, guests scour North Central College’s campus, the historical district, and downtown Naperville in hopes of spotting translucent ghouls to stuff and mount above the mantel. While admiring the recently restored painted-lady mansions, specter seekers learn about local ghosts such as Charlie Yellow Boots and the weeping bride. Alternatively, in the Aurora walking tour, participants tote an EMF ghost meter to the "City of Cemeteries." Stepping silently amid the railroad's old roundhouse, the Riverwalk, and Stolp Island, search parties learn of ghastly murders and lost souls.
