While I was growing up this was the Favorite Haunt of every Teenager around. Some thirty some years ago we as teenagers would venture out to this Estate at night to search for the hidden tomb that had a buried Treasure of Gold
and landed up running from the Monks . If you were caught you would be made to knee for hours on shattered Glass or a Broomstick.
Without fail most people would get caught just to earn bragging rights at High School - How young and silly we Once were .
The grounds of Peabody's Tomb located in Oakbrook , IL have now been purchased by the Community and opened to the public. How ironic if the Monks would have charged admission they would have never had to sell. The new regime has an outdoor Theater
now Showing many of Shakespeare's Productions and the Mansion itself is now used for many different Functions ( High School Reunions , Fundraisers etc. ) this Halloween the Theme: Find Peabody's Tomb - So after I distribute treats by my Mom's I will head out with my sis to revisit some old Haunts, I should be an Expert - and yes my knee Still Hurt - Cannot wait to return
Go to the Link to see the History - very cool - it will bring you to the Full Story - We will see if I come back - Hehehehe
