    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This route explores the Milwaukee neighborhood of Riverwest via stories about ghosts. Journalist Tea Krulos was working on a book that examines the lives of paranormal investigators, titled Monster Hunters, and was curious about what ghost stories he might find in his own backyard. After putting out a call for stories, he found himself visiting his neighbors to put together a story for a community newspaper, the Riverwest Currents.

    This walk gives you a chance to hear these stories and take a look around this artistic and eclectic neighborhood.
