It was interesting reading--I have never heard of it before. However, it hardly seems close to being the "most haunted" place in Wisconsin! Although the whole size-shifting thing is odder than the normal odd ghost stuff!

That's what I want! If the organ playing starts, I will take it back!

I haven't, but my Mom, aunts, and uncles have. They grew up on a lake on the Cisco chain of lakes. Summerwind was on West Bay Lake which is part of that chain. Back in the late 60s/early 70s, at times when the house was abandoned, she and her brothers and sisters, as well as other kids that lived in the area would take boats out there, climb up the hill, and go sneak around inside and around the house. I don't think they ever experienced anything strange, but they had a good time scaring each other. One of the times my mom went in the house with a friend and she said it was a mess. There were lots of papers, documents, mail, garbage, etc. scattered all over the floor. She said the house was very interesting, but they never experienced anything unusual.

Summerwind burnt down in in 1988 and a new house has been built on or near the foundation. I often wonder if those new people are still living there? Based on what I've read about the place, I don't think I'd ever set foot on that property!

Exactly!

I don't believe in pushing my luck when I don't have to.

Susancruzs.............. it just might be the "BRICK" the ghost has been inhabiting!



We read this and watched the video last night before going to bed. My wife told me "You know NOW I'm going to have trouble sleeping!" But she didn't complain this morning so I'm not bringing it up.
