Was ihr unternehmen werdet

If you think all the big-time gangsters of Illinois were in Chicago, then you haven't heard about John Looney. In the early 1900s, Looney ruled an empire of booze, bribery, extortion, gambling, and prostitution ... and he was responsible for at least six murders. It's said even Al Capone was scared of him!

Join me on a walking tour through downtown Rock Island where we'll see Looney's old haunts, such as where he first started out as a lawyer in town, the building where he had the printing press for his "yellow newspaper," where the Looney-driven riots took place, and the location of the shoot-out that took the life of his only son occurred.

We'll also discover some actual haunts along the way, including the old YMCA building where almost constant paranormal activity occurs.

Step back into history with me to when Rock Island was Looney's town and Prohibition didn't matter.

QC Haunts & History has the ONLY ghost tours in the Quad Cities this side of the mighty Mississippi River!

I love a good local legend or a ghost story, don't you? I've got a few, and I want to share with you! I'm a local author and cemetery aficionado, and I've been studying the history of Rock Island and the Quad Cities for many years. I've given tours of area and regional cemeteries and have given presentations throughout the Midwest on local and regional cemeteries and history, ghost stories, urban legends, and more. As a native of the Quad Cities, I've grown up hearing about our history and legends. Now I want to share them with you!
