Could Milwaukee be even stranger than it seems? Absolutely! Milwaukee’s Fortean history may surprise you. This presentation features ghost stories and other weird tales from Milwaukee history. Are immortals among us? Can ghosts leave footprints? Do demons possess the souls of those around you? The fascinating answers to these questions and more will be revealed by Allison Jornlin of milwaukeeghosts.com

Allison grew up in a small town in southeastern Wisconsin, reading everything in the school library about UFOs, monsters, ghosts, and psychic phenomena and wondering about the mysteries of the big city.  When she moved to Milwaukee she dug even deeper into the city’s dusty archives and began gathering first hand accounts of encounters with the paranormal.  Finally, inspired by Chicago’s Richard Crowe, who kick started U.S. ghost tourism in 1973, she founded Milwaukee’s first haunted history tour in 2008.

When she’s not teaching fourth graders at a local elementary school, Allison conducts ghost tours in the Third Ward and down Milwaukee’s haunted main street, Wisconsin Avenue.  She assists businesses and paranormal investigation teams with in-depth historical research.  As an admirer of anomalies researcher Charles Fort, she frequently provides expert commentary on a variety of Fortean topics for the podcast, See You on the Other Side (http://othersidepodcast.com).

Allison is currently compiling her more than 10 years of local research into a travel guide featuring 101 of Milwaukee’s public haunts.  If you have a ghost story to share, she’d love to hear from you.
