  1. Hi,

    Ive been looking for information on the history of hinsdale, IL. Ive had no luck in getting a reasponse from the historical society. I work at 40 S. Clay street, Hinsdale. It is currently a medical facility and is considered a historical building which prevented dupage medical group from trearing it down to rebuild. So they renovated instead. Myself and many employees in the radiology department (ground floor) have had a few paranormal experiences here and are looking for more information. Was this land involved in the fire at all?

    Thank you,

  2. I live about a mile and half from queen haven and everytime i drive by the main church… i couldnt bare to look at it. My heart and my mind feels clouded and i just don’t feel like it’s a great spiritual space.

  3. While visiting my parents grave, my sister, daughter and myself experienced the overwhelming smell of flowers upon getting back in the car. It was a cold windy day and no flowers were in bloom yet.
