A haunted history of this Midwestern region filled with supernatural lore . . . Includes photos!

Divided by state lines and the Mississippi River, the Quad Cities share a common haunted heritage. If anything, the seam that runs through the region is especially rife with spirits, from the Black Angel of Moline's Riverside Cemetery to the spectral Confederate POWs of Arsenal Island.

Of course, the city centers have their own illustrious supernatural residents—the Hanging Ghost occupies Davenport, Iowa's City Hall, while the Phantom Washwoman wanders Bettendorf's Central Avenue. At Igor's Bistro in Rock Island, Illinois, every day is Halloween. In this chilling tour, Michael McCarty and Mark McLaughlin—both Bram Stoker Award honorees—hunt down the haunted lore of this vibrant Midwestern community.
