Ghost Hunts USA to Host Overnight Hunts at the Haunted Ashmore Estates

Home » Blog » Illinois's Best Weekend Events, IllinoisHauntedHouses.com News and Updates, Illinois Haunt News


Do you have what it takes to spend the night in one of the most haunted destinations in Illinois? Ashmore Estates is a historic building that first opened its doors in 1916 and operated as an almshouse that was once part of the Coles County Poor Farm. The almshouse was in operation until 1959 before it was purchased by Ashmore Estates to use as a private psychiatric center. 

The psych center ceased operation in 1986 and stood abandoned for 20 years before opening as a commercial haunted house. The location is known for being truly haunted and is a paranormal hot spot in Illinois.

Ghost Hunts USA will be holding overnight tours at the site for those brave enough to take on the spirits that lurk throughout! The events will take place on select dates in September and October (one of those dates being Halloween night!)
