Lake Zurich Recreation Department



The "Scare Masters" of Lake Zurich have done it again!

Dateline: Lake Zurich, Illinois

The curators of Zurich Mansion, Lake Zurich's original haunted house, are about to unveil their latest discovery, "The East Wing". Project Director Dr.  Schmidt explains, "We have spent the last two years working to restore "The East Wing" so we may include this section of this once proud and stately Manor in our tours. My staff is very excited about being able to complete the restorations just in time for Halloween. We know our guest taking the tours will not be disappointed with our recent discoveries."

Dr.  BC Schmidt, with the help of his colleges, Professor   Richmond, historian D Meyers, architect D Bartels and M Perry will be guiding the tours this year. Dr. Schmidt stated, "We only open Zurich Mansion to the public during the Halloween season to raise money to benefit the Park & Recreation Department.

Zurich Mansion, located in what now is known as Paulus Park at 400 Whitney Road, Lake Zurich, Illinois, was originally unearthed by the L. Z. Park & Recreation Department in the early 80's. Having brought in Dr. Schmidt and Professor Richmond to help explore and restore the ruins of the Mansion, Dr. Schmidt became the Project Director after several top staff members were lost while exploring a secret passageway. "Even though we have not heard from them since, Professor Richmond continued, "we know the staff is in there somewhere. There are a lot of places they could have wandered into, but we are confident that we will find them someday soon. We will not give up the search for our fellow colleges."
