Bachelors Grove Cemetery is well known as one of the most haunted places in all of Chicagoland. This small desecrated graveyard has more unexplained paranormal activities than any other cemetery worldwide.
One of the most famous sightings is the woman sitting on a tombstone, this picture shows the transparent image of a woman sitting on a small checkered tombstone looking out into the woods. This photo was taken by Jude Felz and published in the Chicago Sun-Times.
This photo was taken during an investigation of Bachelor's Grove cemetery near Chicago by the Ghost Research Society (GRS). On August 10, 1991, several members of of the GRS were at the cemetery, a small, abandoned graveyard on the edge of the Rubio Woods Forest Preserve, near the suburb of Midlothian, Illinois.
Reputed to be one of the most haunted cemeteries in the U.S., Bachelor's Grove has been the site of well over 100 different reports of strange phenomena, including apparitions, unexplained sights and sounds, and even glowing balls of light.
GRS member Mari Huff was taking black and white photos with a high-speed infrared camera in an area where the group had experienced some anomalies with their ghost-hunting equipment. The cemetery was empty, except for the GRS members. When developed, this image emerged: what looks like a lonely-looking young woman dressed in white sitting on a tombstone. Parts of her body are partially transparent and the style of the dress seems to be out of date.

I dont think anyone really knows when the house was built, the area was private property, and the graves were for friends and relatives. There are only 12-15 of them. Supposedly the house was burned down in the early 1900s. There have been hand drawn sketches of it by different witnesses at different times. They were at different angles and all seem to match!
I spent a lot of time there and never found a foundation. I wanted to research the stories to find out if they were true or not. The drownings happened that was why the fence went up. But the terrain is rough and not easily fenced in. People constantly cut the locks and chains.
