  1. I do believe there may be something paranormal about Elk Mound Tower, as I have visited that place countless times and always felt dizzy and nauseated as soon as I set foot inside the tower. My dad, who does not believe in ghosts, has also felt nauseated when he used to go in there as well. A few times I have felt as if someone or something was watching me, in the room just before the very top.

    This is Emma from clear lake Wisconsin, I formed a group with my close cousins to track ghosts…my cousins live in Menominee.. My parents are divorced so I also go to elk mound Wisconsin were my dad lives..anyways me and my group called the spirit slayers did research and found that this castle in elk mound was haunted..so we went up to investigate… When we got there I turned my thermal camera on… it was a video thermal camera so I could catch it on tape… Well we were walking up to the castle when I pointed my camera up to see on my camera a person.. I didn’t see it with a naked eye but I caught it..it was on the second floor.. There is only one exit so we wouldve ran into a person if he/she was actually up there. I screen shotted a picture of the figure..I would love to show this off and get your interest! Please reply I would love to some how show you the picture!! ~Spirit Slayers

  3. I live in Elk Mound. I have never really felt nauseous. Although, I agree I have felt a little weird or different on the floor right before the too.

  4. you feel nauseous because the tower is up high. but anyways. my mom her friend and I went to the tower last night and it felt like someone was watching and following us. we had flashlights and no one else was there. i was by one of the windows as was my mom and her friend and I felt like someone was trying to shove me out the window. my mom and her friend were by the 2nd window on the 1st floor and i was looking out the 1st window on the 1st floor.

  5. Went up there last night. we had a policeman follow us from the corner of 12 and H in elk mound. He followed us to elk mound drive and up the road. Halfway up the road, he disappeared on one of the bends. We waited at the top for about 15 minutes and never saw him.
