The Chicago Water Tower that Survived the Fire
According Dylan Clearfield, this tower that has born witness to Chicago's long history, is haunted by those who died during the fires. He believes that those who tried to reach the safety of the tower and failed still cling to the old structure finding the sanctuary in death there that they couldn't find in life. According to Clearfield, ghosts have been seen in the windows of the water tower and they are sometimes even seen hanging by their neck. There is no known reason for the ghosts to be seen in such a state, but the stories remain bearing witness to some haunted past that history has forgotten.
