Ghosts on the Bloomingdale Trail

October 19, 2021 - November 15, 2021

Ghosts on the Bloomingdale Trail is a collaboration between Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail, Free Street Theater, Chicago Mobile Makers, and Radio Luzifer. Project funding and support are provided by the Chicago Park District.

This project features 15 ghost stories as told to us by Chicago residents. Some are told by the people who experienced the haunting, and others are performances based on interview transcripts. All stories are true in the sense that real people – your neighbors – believe this happened to them. 

Do you have a story you’d like to share for a future version of this project? We’d love to be in touch! Please tell us more here.
