Haunting Tales: Ghost of Larrabee St. (Tallman’s Ghost)

tallmann ghost house creepy wisconisn larabee street haunting

Considering that our last Haunting Tale came from one of the ghost segments of the show Unsolved Mysteries, I was hesitant to use another case that was so popular from the show.

That was before I ran into the video segment online for the Tallman’s Ghost case, which covered the story of Debbie and Allen Tallman, who thought they had found a perfect house for their family on Larrabee Street in Horicon, Wisconsin.

However, just months after moving in, the entire family was chased from the home by what seemed to be a poltergeist type of haunting that some say bordered on the demonic.

Others say that Debbie and Allen Tallman were out of their depth when buying the house, and made the story up to escape a house they could not afford.

So what did reside in the house on Larrabee Street? Was it a cold demonic force, a pesky poltergeist or the results of mistaking the normal for the extra ordinary or even fraud?

Ghostly Pics: Wem Town Hall Ghost

There are many famous ghost photographs in the world, like the Amityville Ghost Boy or the lady sitting on a grave marker captured at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Illinois, but one of the most famous ghost pictures of all time is the one purportedly of the Wem Town Hall Ghost, which shows a little girl staring out from a building that is ablaze.

Taken by part time\ amateur photographer and sewage farm worker Tony O’Rahilly in November 1995 as he was standing across the street from the blaze at the Wem Town Hall.

Later, after the picture had been developed Tony and other noticed the strange girl in old clothing standing among the flames. Coincidence or one of the best pieces of evidence for life after death?
