George Stickney House

Bull Valley, Illinois

The wife of this home's namesake was a big believer in the Spiritualism movement, which feared the consequences of spirits trapped in corners—or so the explanation goes for this 1865 house's strange construction, which left out right angles altogether. But perhaps it is the fact that only three of the couple's 10 children survived to adulthood that explains the supernatural occurrences—like opening desk drawers and turning doorknobs—that are rumored to have plagued the building in modern times. The local police department, which is currently housed there, has even reportedly lost officers who quit after spooky experiences.
