Jane Addams Hull House - Real Haunted Place
This home dates back to the late 1800's and was originally a settlement house beginning in the late 19th Century. The house operated as a place that attempted to influence and improve the lives of the poorer neighbors in the community. The story that is most often repeated about the Hull House (and the inspiration for Rosemary's Baby) is that of the Devil Baby, a horned scaled infant born to an atheist father who defied God and who the good matrons of Hull House took in and hid from the world. The story is an Urban Legend, however, the matron who scoffed at the idea that she had taken in a devil baby, did claim that the place might actually be haunted, as she herself is alleged to have seen a White Lady who has also been seen by others and who seems to prefer to appear in the front parlor of the home.

Photo on ghost tour
I took this photo on a ghost tour several years ago. We were just looking in at the staircase. I didn’t see anything until I got on the bus and scrolled through the photos on my phone. IMG_3606.JPGPosted 10/27/20
