Ron Brossman’s grandparents bought the property in 1899, but he knows the property existed even back in the 1840s before Wisconsin was a state. Helen, Ron’s mother, grew up there and so did he. Before it was a bar, the property had served as a stagecoach stop and hotel.
Growing up, Ron always saw strange things in the house and Cassie Christoplis and her mom Sue, had quite a few stories to tell. We’ll be featuring several of them throughout the month of October.
The Racine Paranormal Investigators conducted their first investigation at that tavern a few months ago. Diane Christensen, Ron Helmick, Katie Schurman, Scott Baer and Zac Baer say they have evidence of the spirits.
