      A.C. Clement Home Paranormal Excursion December 13
      Be a part of a paranormal investigation. Join the Will County Ghost
      Hunters Society <http://www.aghostpage.com/> on Saturday December 13,
      2008 from 10pm to 6am for an overnight experience at the A.C. Clement
      home located at 519 Campbell Street in Joliet.

      The home was built in 1902 by one of Joliet's most well
      renowned businessman of the time, A.C. Clement. A.C. purchased the land
      from his father, Charles Clement. His father moved from New Hampshire in
      1834 and quickly became a prominent business man in the Joliet
      community. Charles built a Dry goods business and was the first
      treasurer for the town of Joliet. In 1844 he married Cordelia Wilcox.
      The couple had 2 children, Arthur Charles (A.C.) and Jill. Much like
      his father, A.C. became a renowned businessman. In 1897 he formed a
      business partnership with his brother-in-law Samuel D. Chaney. He
      constructed the business block at the corners of Jefferson Street and
      Ottawa Street. The business partnership dissolved in 1902 and A.C. went
      into business for himself. During the time of its construction, he
      served as the president of Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet. He later
      married Miss Georgia Smith in New York. They had two children Charles
      and Laura. The couple constructed a home on 519 Campbell Street, while
      living in their home on Eastern Avenue in Joliet. Before the completion
      of construction of the new home, A.C. committed suicide in the basement
      of his home on Eastern Avenue. His daughter Laura and her husband moved
      into the home at 519 Campbell Street. His family lived in the home for
      many years. In 1922 the home was converted into a retirement home called
      Resthaven Retirement home. The retirement home closed in the early
      1950's. Shortly after the retirement home closed the Blackburn Funeral
      Home moved into the location. The funeral home operated at the location
      until the early 1970's. The location was then converted back into a
      private residence. The current home owners purchased the property in
      2000. Shortly after moving into the home, they began to remodel. It
      was at this time they began to notice unusual things happening. Over the
      course of the past eight years the residences and guests have seen the
      apparitions of a woman, that is sometimes accompanied by the smell of
      perfume or flowers. She has been seen mainly in the parlor/ living room.
      This is the area that was used to wake bodies when the location was used
      as a funeral home. The apparition of a tall, thin man has been seen in
      the rear of the home on the first and second floors. In a second floor
      guest bedroom the apparition of a small boy has been seen as well. There
      have been unexplained odors such as smoke, perfume, and the smell of
      urine on the third floor. On one occasion, while in the parlor room a
      cold breeze passed though the room that was accompanied by the smell of
      perfume. Unexplainable voices, knocking, footsteps have been heard
      throughout the home. The lights and TV have been turned on by themselves
      numerous times over the past several years. There has also been two
      separate occasions where items have been moved by themselves. The first
      is the appearances of two books that were not in the home, and the home
      owners are unaware of where they may have come from. The second is when
      several baby gates that are used to contain the dogs were completely
      moved to a different location. There is no possible way for the dogs to
      have moved them and all the residences deny having moved them. The dogs
      have acted strangely on several different occasions. They sometimes bark
      at nothing, and will not go into certain rooms of the home. There has
      also been a few occasions that guests have felt like someone was
      touching them or pushing them. The Will County Ghost Hunters
      Society has investigated the home on several different occasions. They
      were able to capture a solid apparition of a man on the second floor. To
