The Creepy Town In Wisconsin 

Whitewater is a city located in Walworth and Jefferson counties in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The town is not only known as Whitewater but it is also been called the "Second Salem."

There are a few buildings seen as crappy, haunted, or cursed in this area. The library there is rumored to have a cursed book in the basement. One source went on to say,

The book is believed to be connected to the Witches of Whitewater and is said to be so dangerous that the library had to lock it away in the basement. The book in question is a large, antique hymnal written in Latin that was donated to the library after an area church closed its doors.

The creepy events don't stop at the buildings. the three cemeteries in the town make a perfect triangle. There are several stories linked to the graveyards. OIYS went on to say,
