I found it interesting to see that Wisconsin is perhaps the most haunted State in the US. I also see where there are mentions of Vampires and Werewolf's. Do any of you want to ad your two cents worth?

Where are these three things supposed to be located? What stories can you all share?

I just happened to turn the tv channel and it was talkig bout the Summerwind house, so I looked up hauntings in Wisconsin, and there was information on the Vampires and Werewolf's. I am sure there are stories in Oregon also, but since we are moving to Wisconsin, I thought I'd do a little research. I'm not into all of this, it is just interesting. I bet Halloween is eventful.

I've never personally heard any incidents involving the above superstitions, and if I did I'd probably question the sanity of the person involved.

Nothing to be afraid of.
It's just my mother-in-law yelling at her husband.

Very Funny!!

I just thought it was an interesting tid bit. Every State has their own little stories, it just makes for fun conversation. I am sure we will enjoy Wisconsin, but I will miss my family, friends and beautiful Oregon. Can't beat the mild weather and outstanding mountains.

Thanks to all of you who have been so helpful with my many questions in other threads.

I don't know about vampires, but the Stevens Point area is supposedly rife with paranormal activity. There's a ghost of an old man who drags a dead body through a park. There's a boy who was killed in a wooded area on the edge of town, and he has been "spotted" running through the woods on various occasions. There's other storires about Stevens Point.

In Kettle Moraine State Forest north section, there's a Bigfoot like creature that has been "seen" running across Hwys 23 & 67.

The south central and southwest corner of the state, particularily the Mt. Horeb area seems to attract witches. They're not some stereotypical, conniving group of course. They're just like any other group of people practicing their religion. They must be attracted to the geography there. I've heard stories of "haunted roads" in this area of the state.

Every corner of the state has something for ghost seekers and paranormal junkies. I'm not saying any of this is real, but I'm not saying it isn't either.
