George Stickney House - Bull Valley Police Department - Real Haunt in Bull Valley IL
The two-story house had a ballroom on the second floor that ran the full length of the building. No square corners were allowed for the house design as it was believed spirits had a tendency to get stuck in corners, but due to error one corner of the home did have a 90-degree measurement. When Mr. Stickney discovered the flaw, it eventually led to his death by an evil spirit many believe. Mr. Stickeney was discovered one day dead, slumped over on the floor in the corner of the home that had the design flaw.
After the death of Mr. Stickney, Mrs. Stickney grew fame as a spirit medium. People came from far away places to make contact with ghosts at the house. While it started off as a place for spiritualistic activities, it later became known as a place for devil worshippers when the property switched hands. Spirits good and evil are believed to continue to linger here while it now houses the local police department.

Vintage Miusic Playing at late hours
People have recently been hearing old record players playing old music, around this home and the surrounding woods. They recorded it, sounds very creepy. Its active now, if people have more "guts" than me, go scope it out, at night.Posted 3/31/21

The story was that he believed the devil hid in corners, so he had the house built with no corners. It wasn't due to spirituality, rather superstition! We went there many times when the house sat vacant, nothing odd, eerie or mysterious ever happened. Don't waste your time.Posted 9/25/20
