Creatures fall from the sky

Strange occurance

June 4, 1869 Residents of Taylorville awoke that morning to find that the evening rains had also brought unkown serpent like creatures with them. They measured 18"-24" in leagth three quarters to one inch thick, dark in color with a flattend tail.they had no fins, an eel-like head and a suckerlike mouth, small eyes, and a single pair of perfectly formed appendages — similar to those of a turtle just behind the head.

Illinois mystery sites

Strange things happen in Illinois. I often take short trips to visit some of the mysterious locations throughout the state. I started this map so I could gauge where these places are. I also learned of many new places and hope the map helps you too. The map is more of a general marker than a detailed description of each spot. Research those that you find interesting, there are lots of books and other websites that can tell you more. I am updating this map often so come back and see what new mysteries have been discovered.
Please email me with anything I should include. Link above
