    I wasn't able to spot the ghost. Maybe you've got to have faith to see it. Nice page.

    Being from an area in Illinois close to the Wabash, we visited Evansville when I was a kid, and in college our rival was Evansville. Thanks for the memories.

    Great cover photo and beautiful old architecture there (Willard Library especially). Closed to traffic downtown? I have never seen that in the USA? Rather unusual, am I wrong?

    I've never been to Evansville, but now that I live in Indiana, I guess I'll have to go there one of these days. Besides, I'd love to check out the haunted library.
