Washington County Paranormal

A Wisconsin Legend Trip

Growing up, J. Nathan Couch always had a passion for bizarre modern day legends, surviving small town tedium by chasing ghosts and hunting monsters. Upon moving to West Bend, Wisconsin, he set out to learn the legends of his new home, and he’s taking you with him.

Grab your gear, jump in the car, and join Nathan as he legend trips the murderous goat men, nature spirits, spectral prostitutes, and ghostly locomotives that inhabit the kettles and moraines of Southeastern Wisconsin. In nearly three dozen essays, all with detailed driving directions, Washington County is revealed to be Wisconsin’s finest paranormal road-trip!
