Archer Woods/Lithuanian National
Archer Woods and Lithuanian National Cemetery are next to each other and based on the serendipity of my last visit to Lithuanian; I decided that it should be incorporated into Archer Woods as an inimitable combined site ...The beautiful Indian Summer weather served as a stark contrast to the last mid march, 4 am visit to Archer Woods ..I remember walking along the fence after parking at a nearby tavern and finding myself experiencing mixed emotions when confronted with the open cemetery gates during that damp, sleeting morning solo sojourn ...I remember the spit second of hesitation that led to a stiff legged march up the main driveway of the grounds that assuredly belied my intended feigned nonchalance...and after pausing for a few photos of the most immediate markers, I felt compelled to backtrack to the solitary building on the property that served as an makeshift office now but apparently was intended to hold visitation viewings in the past as a glimpse inside revealed a pedestal that looked to be designed to accommodate a coffin...the howling wind and penetrating cold seemed to hinder the suppression of my sensitivities that evening and as I became more and more agitated by my shields being compromised  I remember that I really wanted to get some shots of the building before retreating to the comparative safety of the street ....as I approached the building and the sensation of increasing alarm the closer I came, there was a sudden loud banging noise like some one was pounding on then front door from within that darkened ominous structure....The mid day sun of today's visit did not quite evoke the consternation of that last late winter, early morning stroll along suburban Kean avenue, but I did find myself having to make a concerted effort to keep my sensitivities at bay in certain spots at both locations today.

ARCHER WOODS CEMETERY

Located just north of mysterious Archer Avenue, where many haunted sites can be found, including the home haunting ground of "Resurrection Mary", is the Archer Woods Cemetery.

The cemetery gates can be found along Kean Road and mark the entrance to this strange and unsettling site. Many local residents claim that this may be the most haunted of the immediate area's burial grounds.... and that means a lot considering that close by is the already mentioned, Resurrection Cemetery and St. James-Sag Cemetery.



The gates to Archer Woods Cemetery hide many secrets, including those of a mysterious woman in white who has been reported her by night-time passersby.

        This cemetery is also haunted by a mysterious woman but this one is not trying to flag down a ride on Kean Road. She seems to be content staying inside the cemetery, although it is passing motorists who usually notice her. People who are sometimes driving along the road in front of the cemetery at night claim to have heard the sound of a sobbing woman from the other side of the gates. When they check, they report the apparition of a woman in a white dress, walking among the tombstones and crying loudly, her face covered by her hands.

        Who this woman is and why she haunts here is a mystery....

Resurrection (Mary) Cemetery 7[/size]

The gloomy and overcast October 1st morning provided an idyllic backdrop for my return to the older section of Resurrection Cemetery ...The stately trees that liberally adorn the grounds there were now tempered with tints of orange, amber and magenta leaving little doubt that the encroaching fall weather would inevitably transform them into a myriad of autumn colors before rendering them as gaunt, skeletal and barren stalks for the duration of the winter months ahead...
There is a certain sense of surrealism that many experience upon making their paranormal pilgrimage here that does not diminish with time or frequency of return visits ...The story of Resurrection Mary has become shrouded in antiquity as the years go by and the legend is further complicated by controversy amid factions that contend the legendary apparition was in life; Mary Bregovy and now those that are steadfast in their belief that it was in actuality; Mary Miskowski (see link below)...Some speculate that whomever this woman was had some potent psychic or telekinetic abilities in life and that she may have not died immediately following that fateful hit and run that left her for dead that evening...this in conjunction with being scorned by her date that left her in this predicament and already anguished emotional state as she clung to life on that cold, damp roadside served to further exacerbate her outrage before she finally perished there alone, abandoned, violated and cold... and the psychical energy released left an imprint that seems to keep calling this spirit back to relive the torment she felt that evening... is this the torment that drives Chicago’s seminal spook to relive that evening in an interactive act of residual repetition...What compels this earth-bound entity to retrace her fateful steps along Archer Avenue and in defiance of the of usual residual haunting M.O. acknowledge the living by way of hitchhiking rides or manifesting at The Willow Brook Ballroom to dance with unsuspecting Halloween dance attendees in her diaphanous white gown with the long trailing dress that her flowing pale tresses and willowy frame probable made her spectral in appearance even on that Autumnal evening that claimed her ephemeral life long ago... On the other side of the fence; is her posthumous recalcitrance indelibly etched in the physical burial boundaries of Resurrection?...Perhaps the rage she feels at her confinement within the gates of the cemetery burns so fiercely at times that it had left her fingerprints inexplicably imprinted into the iron gates ...an inexplicable phenomena that to this day defies logical explanation and almost every time I have returned to Resurrection Cemetery there is some new bizarre bends in the iron front gates that keep returning regardless of the vigilance the cemetery management to repair or replace the bars...most of you probably know this story as this haunting has been ongoing since the 30's but seems to have tapered off since archer Avenue was resurfaced in the mid 80's ...has “Mary” finally been released from here earth bound agony by way of medium intervention, environmental changes, natural dispersion of once her once powerful pent up psychical energies by the simple passage of time?...I have trouble reading this site because is such an auric blend of mixed spiritual signatures ...some benign other not so much ...I love the historic significance associated with the older section there ...the weathering and eroding of a few of the statues has transformed some of them from iconic symbols of Christian allegory to almost fiendish looking disfigured, shrouded ghouls while others remain unchanged in their timeless beauty ...as I was opting for the best angle to shoot one of the more awe inspiring markers, I lamented out loud how “beautiful” this particular Madonna statue was ...I heard a woman’s voice echo the sentiment “yes that is one of my favorites”...

Here are the unedited (compressed) photos from my October 1st visit to Resurrection Cemetery ( total)....b
