Holmes Death Castle Location

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Holmes Death Castle Location

A post office now stands on the former site of the Holmes Death Castle, or Murder Castle, built by serial killer H.H. Holmes. He built the hotel to lure in 1893 Chicago World’s Fair visitors, then tortured and murdered his guests, including women and children. In this area, witnesses say phantom screams can be heard, and pet dogs are visible shaken when they walk past. Some locals are reported to cross the street when walking past, to avoid being too near the place and its negative energy.
