Hosted by Len Adams

Join American Hauntings for a special weekend to kick off the Halloween season! Celebrate the start of autumn in Lebanon, Illinois - “one of the most historic and haunted towns in Illinois” and be chilled by presentations on ghosts, hauntings, spirited locations, paranormal investigations and much more! Meet authors and speakers on strange phenomena, network with other ghost enthusiasts from all over the Midwest, join us for a special ghost tour or an overnight ghost hunt & make this a haunted weekend you won't soon forget!

The annual kick-off to Halloween will be held in Lebanon, which is 25 miles east of St. Louis on Interstate 64. The free open house will be held at the local Visitor's Center, at
221 West St. Louis Street, right in the center of town. From noon till 4pm, your host, Len Adams and his cast of fellow paranormal researchers will keep you enthralled with tales of  ghostly happenings. Our event is held the same weekend as the town of Lebanon's own Fall Festival. From 9am to 5pm, the main street will be closed off for various venders and craftsmen. Unlike the burned hotdogs and warm soda served by Len in the past, you can get real food served in real restaurants in town! Many of these locations are featured on the Haunted Lebanon Tour, especially The Tapestry Room (Len's favorite). So come early and enjoy the town and plan to stay late and encounter the ghosts!

See the Sites of Lebanon or Email Len Adams with Questions about this year's event!

* Shari Cain: Witchcraft -- Myths, Magicks and Morals
Witches aren't real, right? Wrong. A look at modern witches, their craft and what it means to call yourself a witch. Shari Cain is an independent paranormal investigator and Tarot reader. She loves old places, spooky places and history. Halloween and studying beliefs and religions, especially the Craft.
The perfect presentation to kick off the Halloween season!

* DON Urban: Dickens in Lebanon
As a Belleville attorney and mainstay at the local Looking Glass Theater, Don is one of the leading experts on the historical visit that Charles Dickens made to American in 1842.  Don makes Dickens' visit to the Looking Glass Prairie come alive and leaves lasting memories as he delves in why Dickens came to Lebanon, who persuaded him to stay and he thought of the area. It's an experience not to be missed!
* Len Adams: Host
For this year's event, host Len Adams will (as usual) be entertaining attendees with some of his ghost hunting exploits in Lebanon and the surrounding areas, many of which can't be heard on the Haunted Lebanon Tour! Len Adams is also the Lebanon Town Historian and Caretaker of the Mermaid House. 

Also From Len Adams: Demonic Possession
In this chilling presentation, Len will highlight two famous cases of demonic possession. Were these people under an evil influence or just mentally disturbed. Len will lay out the facts and let you be the judge.

Note: Due to the disturbing nature of this presentation, no one under 10 will be allowed to attend the daytime event. Sorry!
