Canít tell you why I am looking for this place cuz ya might think I am playing with half a deck. Oh heck I am playing with all the jokers. Thanks Russ

I'm curious if that is actually the name or just a description because they didn't know the name or didn't want to publish it. Might be St. Joseph or Riverside. They are right next to each other so it is hard to say. Being on the River could also explain some things.

Yeah, I have a pretty good Idea why you are looking for it.

You might want to check out this cache. Twelve Creepy Grottos

St Joseph and Riverside adjoin each other. Obviously only one is the Catholic one. It is old, with graves back into the 1890's.

There is also St Mary's, over on the west side near Hwy 41. That's where Joseph McCarthy is buried. Not too sure how old that one is.

Hmmmmm.......? Rusty fingers?

Russell, you will like the Twelve Creepy Grotto's cache .. has just the right atmosphere .. too bad you can not do it at night .. go at dawn or dusk to get the whole effect ..

Appleton - Dairy Queen

Sitting on the rubble of a tavern, unfortunate DQ workers are bothered by lights that flip on and off and unexplained noises as they whip up tasty Blizzards and ChiliDawgs for hungry Wisconsinites. (there are 2 DQ's in Appleton - I've no idea which is the gate to Hell: 1813 N Richmond St or 2000 S Oneida St)

Must be the Richmond one as the Oneida St. one does not serve Chili Dogs.

When we did the creepy grottos it was a blast from the past for me. As a child my grandpa took me here often to visit grandma's grave, feed the ducks and walk the stations of the cross that were in those grottos. Sad to see how they have been destroyed.

Ok, dumb question - I saw the pictures, but what the purpose of a grotto or these in particular?

The 12 grottos in this case were once used for Stations of the Cross, during the Lentin season.

Been years since they have been used.....
