The numerous hauntings and psychic phenomena of Manitowoc Place (formerly the Evergreen Inn Hotel) in Manitowoc; ghosts and unearthly screams at the haunted, historic and luxurious Retlaw Plaza Hotel in Fond du Lac; a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; the ghost of Mr Pfister, who still walks his phantom dog, in the historic and pet friendly Pfister Hotel, in Milwaukee; the carnivorous, forest dwelling hidebehind, which can conceal itself anywhere (you are safe if you drink beer around the campfire, as the hidebehind loathes the taste of alcohol); many ghosts in Marquette University, Milwaukee; giant, finned serpents, as well as spirits and a powerful manitou, in Devil's Lake (Da-wa-kah-char-gra) where the Ho-Chunk nation still celebrate their spiritual rites; and the beings, possibly fairy folk, who live beneath Sinsinawa Mound, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Wisconsin.
