The 1921 Willowbrook Ballroom, formerly called the Oh Henry Ballroom, is a dance venue and banquet facility and is believed to be the last place famed Chicago hitchhiker ghost Resurrection Mary danced before she died. Her ghost is said to appear here and sometimes dance with ballroom patrons.

Another interesting note: Ozzie Nelson played here with his orchestra in the 1930s. Count Basie, and many other Big Band orchestra greats, played here in the 1940s, and other big names such as Chubby Checker, Otis Day and the Knights and The Village People graved the stage in their heyday.

  1. I have never been to this place or witnessed this ghost, but am aware of the story. The strange thing I experienced was two day’s ago, on October 29 th this entire building burned to the ground, supposedly from a roofer working on site. That was on Friday. Two day’s previous on Wednesday night I awoke having a strange dream about this place and the ghost that is suppose to haunt this location. It wasn’t a very livid dream, but when I awoke , the first thing I thought about was ” Why am I dreaming of this place and this girl”? I know she spoke something to me in the dream ,but I can’t remember what she said. Very Strange!
