St. Norbert Monastery is currently used as an arts and cultural center, but was originally a large Trappist monastic agricultural operation. It was burned by arsonists in 1983 but was rebuilt into the arts center in 1991; the remaining ruins were declared a preserved park in 2002. Apparitions, disembodied voices and the eerie feeling of being watched have been described here by witnesses.

  1. so last year me and a group of friends went here for the first time. we walked around inside the church and outside. throughout the walk i felt like i couldnt breath in one of the rooms. once i walked out i was fine. as we were walking around my friend pointed towards the bushes and we all saw a white figure. dressed up like a nun in that time. we all freaked out and ran back towards the car. i know for a fact it was a ghost cause my friend pointed it out and all of us saw. plus my other friend who wasnt so scared went towards it and it vanished. we googled how they dressed at the time and it was a nun.

  2. i was at the monastery with a friend around 1am. as soon as we got close we both had weird feelings of being watched. we went inside by the back/east corner and explored a little more. as soon as she said she was ready to leave i started to record cause we like to document our adventures and i hadn’t taken any photos or videos yet. in the video i say “this is really creepy” and not even 2 seconds later the most odd sound felt like it flew by us. there was no wind what so ever either and i have no idea what to think about it. but im definitely creeped out. weirdest part is that in the video i have, the sound is muffled at the part where it happened. needless to say her and i both booked it. i’ve never had so much adrenaline in my life
