Few roads in the world rival the super-haunted reputation of Chicago's Archer Avenue, home to some of the city's most legendary ghost stories, including the most famous Vanishing Hitchhiker on earth, Resurrection Mary. This road was constructed by poor Irish immigrants --builders of the controversial and ill-funded Illinois & Michigan Canal-- who laid down the road over an ancient Indian trail known for its spiritual powers. The slavelike conditions of their labor, their deaths from hunger, thirst, disease and violence: all live on in the deep folklore of this storied region.

Join her for a very special trip down this fabled road, when you will travel from its beginnings in haunted Chinatown to its darkest burial ground: the mournful churchyard of St. James at Sag Bridge. Along the way we'll glimpse Kaiser Hall in old Bridgeport, where the Devil himself once came to dance.

You will see the home of Mary Bregovy - believed by some to be the source of the Resurrection Mary legend. She will tell the tales of the abandoned Union Stockyards, where Mary worked in the factories of Packingtown, and pass the funeral home which prepared her body for burial. Late into the evening, you will view the Willowbrook Ballroom, famed stomping ground of Chicago's most famous ghost, and other locations.

Edward Shanahan will be joining Ursula once it gets to the S.W.Side. Shanahan has lived his whole life within 5 minutes of the S.W. Sides most haunted locations, some that are not visited by other paranormal tours. Shanahan and his Psychic and Paranormal Abilities has been written about in 4 paranormal books, including Ursula Bielski's new book 'Chicago Haunts 3'. His Séance has been showcased on Chicago Television and local newspapers this past October (to view them - go to: http://edwardshanahan.com/TVshow.html
), and his demonstrations of his entertaining Psychic readings at public locations have graced Chicago Newspapers.

During the night he also plans on providing readings to determine if individuals are an old or new soul, telekinesis demonstrations and his knowledge about the paranormal activities and area that he has lived in all his life.
