Tours span approximately 1.25 miles and run every Saturday night until October 25.

Voices From Beyond Tours

Voices From Beyond Tours explores the city of Elmhurst, a Chicago suburb much like any other. Filled with urban legends and ghost stories, the tours offer a glance into the city's rich and chilling past, while also offering a fun and enriching historical lesson.

A Chicagoland native and history buff, Ray Johnson explores the legends and mysteries swirling around the Windy City—which fill his book Chicago’s Haunt Detective, the blog he writes for ChicagoNow, and his narration during Voices From Beyond tours. While leading walks through some of Elmhurst’s spookiest sites, including the Elmhurst College Mill Theatre, the White Birch homestead, and Cottage Hill, Ray looks to the expertise of fellow partners and paranormal experts—Kirsten Tillman and Beth Howe. Both handle the technical side of ghost hunting, utilizing electronic-voice-phenomenon equipment or EVPs to capture the sounds of the past. With their passion for the paranormal, Howe and Tillman present their research to fellow tourists allowing them a peek into existence of the phenomena.

Great stories. Cool EVP data

Who knew that Elmhurst had enough weird stuff to fill a 2hr ghost tour. Very interesting. A good long walk. A few technical difficulties at the end, but all in all a very nice time.
