Ashmore Estates is a nationally-known haunted attraction located off Route 16 just west of the east central Illinois village of Ashmore. Ashmore Estates existed as the Coles County Poor Farm almshouse from 1916 to 1959, then became a facility for people with mental and physical disabilities. It closed in 1987 until opening as a haunted attraction in 2006. Since then, it has appeared in several documentaries and national TV shows. Dozens of paranormal investigations have uncovered evidence that this 97-year-old building is actually haunted. So while our actors and actresses may scare you - you may also run into something from another world!
