From the clamor of bygone parades to the phantom scent of burned rubber on Route 66, ghoulish and supernatural visions flourish in Bloomington-Normal. Claimed by a devastating fire in 1859, the spirit of a young girl haunts Kelly's Bakery. Visitors to Kemp Hall report seeing the specter of a lady in red. Cantankerous pitcher Charles Old Hoss Radhourn trolls Evergreen Memorial Cemetery. Author Deborah Carr Senger embarks on a tour of Bloomington-Normal's haunted heritage.
