Massock Mausoleum - Real Haunt in Spring Valley IL
This mausoleum sits inside a small graveyard called the Lithuanian Liberty Cemetery. Locals tell the story of Hatchet Man, a frightening ghost who likes to guard the cemetery. The door to the mausoleum is said to stay warm, even though it has been sealed closed since the 1960's when vandals stole a skull from it. In Rosemary Ellen Guiley’s The Complete Vampire Companion, she tells about a pale, thin apparition seen here at night. According to the book, after hearing about the sightings, a reporter poured holy water into the mausoleum’s vent, and consequently heard an eerie groaning sound come from the crypt. Please note: this area is known to be patrolled by police.
