Our ghost hunts at the haunted Jericho Convent may push you to your very limits.
The Jericho Convent is quickly becoming one of the most frightening locations in Wisconsin.
Activity reported at this location includes shadows, voices, footsteps, and physical communication.
The unincorporated community of Jericho, Wisconsin sits nestled between many acres of farmland. Little has visibly changed since the 1850’s, when German migrants first came to settle in the region.
Deep agricultural ties and a strong Roman Catholic influence are still as apparent today as they were in 1898. That date is when Jericho and the surrounding area first came to be known as “The Holyland”.
Driving on County Road C brings you right into the center of Jericho. Then you spot an incredible collection of buildings on your left as the foreboding Jericho Convent suddenly bursts into view!
Jericho, Wisconsin has always been a small community. In 1855, the area was settled as a station between Sheboygan and Brothertown. Those settlers brought a strong sense of Roman Catholicism.
The Convent was built in 1889, just a few years before the area became known as “The Holyland”. In addition to the property containing the convent buildings, Holy Trinity Church was built in 1915.
The convent operated until 1979. Mergers with 5 other parishes occurred in the years that followed. A lack of priests caused Holy Trinity Church to close in 2005. In 2022, the property was sold for restoration.
The Jericho Convent is fast becoming known as one of the most harrowing locations in Wisconsin. The spirits that haunt these buildings have more than a century worth of stories to tell. What will they say?
Are the footsteps that are often heard through these buildings those of the former nuns, priests, and parishioners who spent so much time here in devotion to their faith? Perhaps one of them will tell you.
Shadows are seen inside the buildings. Are they simply the shadows of those who carry on with their work, even in death? Or perhaps it’s the shadow of someone who committed a deed now lost to history.
Those voices that are heard may simply speak the prayers of their denomination. They may also tell you a story about who they are, something that happened, or perhaps, what ties their spirit to this property.
Those who have dared to sleep inside the haunted walls of this property have found their blankets pulled away as they tried to rest. Are these simply games? Or an interesting way to say, “get out”?
Join us for an event and help write the haunted history of this new and ominous location. What you find may be dark or may be light. But the question is…Either way, do you have what it takes to last the night?
