Schweppe Mansion - Lake Forest IL Real Haunt
This mansion dates back to 1917 and was a wedding gift from Mr. and Mrs. John G. Shedd to their daughter Laura and her new husband, Charles Schweppe. In 1941, Charles shot himself dead in his bedroom, leaving on a note on the dresser that said, "I've been awake all night. It's terrible." The reasoning behind his suicide is unknown. After Laura passed away, the mansion sat empty for 46 years. Stories say the spirits of Charles and Laura remain here, along with several servants. The mansion was purchased and restored in 1987 and has been on the market with a pretty high price tag - anywhere between $9 Million-$18 Million over the years.
