  1. That happened to me during a Christmas party back in the early 2000s. She went right through the wall. It happened so fast that I didn’t even realize for several seconds what I’d seen.

  2. We did a ghost tour a few years ago there. Started at drake then we toured a few places. A lee county jail a old library and a few other places. Enjoyed it…any info on if this tour is still going on?

      Never heard of Burlington having a ghost tour ? I’m the founder of Burlington Iowa Paranormal and I have talked with the owner of the drake and they said they don’t want anything to do with Paranormal teams , and that the places has nothing strange going on as well … but recently talked to some current employees that say strange things happen all the time
