Local historian and ghost hunter shares his “Weird Illinois Road Trip”

Lincoln College’s McKinstry Library is hosting a night with Troy Taylor at the Johnston Center on Lincoln College’s Campus, Thursday October 15 at 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Taylor discusses a startling and spine-tingling journey throughout the state of Illinois in search of the weirdest, most haunted, and most terrifying people, places and tales! From the ghost that lingered after Illinois’ strangest murder to the restless Italian bride, a girl who claimed to be a young woman who’d died years before, the original “vanishing hitchhiker” and even a series of unexplained fires that remain a mystery today.

Lincoln College is continually looking for speaker series that can be of interest to both the campus and local community.  Adrienne Radzvickas, Technical Services Librarian at Lincoln College says, “The McKinstry Library is excited to offer programming that is of interest both to students, faculty, and staff at the College and to the community at large and we feel Weird Illinois Road Trip will appeal to all ages.”

Taylor is a supernatural historian, crime buff, and the author of hundreds of books on ghosts, hauntings, history, crime and the unexplained in America. Born and raised in Illinois, he began developing ghost tours and writing about hauntings and crime in Chicago and Central Illinois.

Join us this Halloween season for tales of Weird Illinois Road Trips. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at the McKinstry Library on Lincoln College’s campus or at the door the night of the program.
