Top Most Haunted City Alton Illinois  -  part 2

The Enos Mansion is a definite focal point in Alton’s paranormal activity. Many of the tenants that occupy what are now apartments in the mansion have reported strange activity. A man that lived in a lower level apartment also reported the footsteps from the basement, but heard a whining sound coming from the basement. When he went to investigate, nothing was found.

Another tenant, a woman that lived in one of the downstairs apartments, also heard the footsteps on the basement stairs and a tapping on the door (she kept the door locked). She called her boyfriend to have him check it out, but he found nothing. On another evening she was enjoying the night at home with her boyfriend and both of them could hear the footsteps. When they went to the door, she could still hear the footsteps and the door knob was turning back and forth. Her boyfriend immediately unlocked the door and pulled the door open, but there was no one there. Not long after this, she moved out of the apartment.

Shortly after this, the Enos Mansion was sold and the new owners began remodeling the building. The paranormal activity had been somewhat quiet in the building, but when the remodeling began, it seemed to “wake up” the resident ghosts. It has been noted that remodeling can cause paranormal activity to increase because of a change in the environment. This appears to be the case with the mansion.

Another women who moved in told of all the trouble she had with a tenant living above her, who would walk around, bang things and move furniture around in the middle of the night. One night when she came home late she could hear the heavy walking and banging coming from the apartment above her. The noise continued for over an hour at which point she went upstairs and starting banging on the apartment door. The door opened slowly and she found a completely empty apartment, with no furniture and nobody there. She found out the apartment had been empty before she even moved in.

According to published reports, the mansion appears to have two different types of hauntings, one type in the lower levels and basement, possibly associated with the Underground Railroad activities in the mansion; and another type in the upper levels where objects disappear, doors open and close and lights that go on and off, which could be related to the patients who were treated in the upper levels for tuberculosis.

It is any ones guess, but most of the tenants that have lived in the mansion have a story to tell.
