Live Life Spiritual Direction is proud to sponsor the 2022 Whitewater Spirit Tour taking place on October 7 & 8, 2022. Learn about Whitewater’s history of spiritualism, ghosts, and witches, oh my!

As quoted from the Whitewater Spirit Tour website, October is the perfect time for spooky, fun adventures!  Enjoy a night of spirit-related stories and unique, behind-the-scenes access to explore haunted sites throughout Whitewater. The city of Whitewater is known as “Second Salem” and is also famous for the “Witches of Whitewater” legends. The community has a rich spiritual history and a multitude of stories of witches, ghosts, alleged murders, and occult practices. Hear the story of the Morris Pratt Institute, Mary Worth and the Winchester Family, serial killer Nellie Horan, the Poison Widow, and other fascinating legends.

Explore some of the most famous haunted sites, that are usually closed to the public, including:

  • The Water Tower at Starin Park (aka “Witches’ Tower”)
  • Mary Worth’s Crypt at Hillside Cemetery
  • Oak Grove cemetery, the burial site of civil war veteran Lieutenant Mead

Many of the haunted sites on the Spirit Tour have been investigated by paranormal groups. Ghostly Gumshoe not only shares their investigative findings of paranormal activities in Whitewater but also brings their equipment along on the tour just in case there is spiritual activity to witness firsthand!

There are two sponsorships still available for the Spirit Tour. Interested in learning more? Whitewater Area Chamber of Commerce would be happy to tell you more. I am on the Spirit Tour committee and could also answer questions.
