American Ghost Walks: Who Are They and What Do They Do?
Converging their interest in the paranormal with the curiosity to uncover secrets, brother and sister Allison Jornlin and Mike Huberty kickstarted American Ghost Walks more than a decade ago. The company was born when Mike and Allison combined their fascination for the supernatural with their love for history. Growing up, the siblings weren’t foreign to suspicious circumstances. The two were brought up in Mukwonago, a place familiar to the inexplicable. Growing up near the mysterious Rainbow Springs Resort, a 760-room hotel that burned down under suspicious circumstances, the duo’s journey to the supernatural was even more interesting.
In 2008, Allison had been offering ghost tours in Milwaukee. During this time, Mike was struggling to pay his mortgage. So, to keep up with the costs of his household, he became a ghost tour guide. Finally, they came up with a permanent solution and joined hands to launch Madison Ghost Walks, which eventually became American Ghost Walks. Slowly, their company grew, giving them enough leverage to dive all in. The brand managed to get a strong momentum and took off on a meteoric scale. It wasn’t long before their work to expose the paranormal was recognized. In 2016, Allison was awarded the Wisconsin Researcher of the Year by the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference for her devotion and contribution to the discovery of the inexplicable.
Before long, they began combining their love for the paranormal with historical occurrences to facilitate walking tours across America. In addition to retelling folklore accurately, the tours also add an enlightening factor for people thrilled by the innate tragedy associated with these places. Of the two, Mike has devoted his undivided attention to growing the business and finding new avenues of profit. On the other hand, Allison has channeled her decades of experience as a paranormal investigator to develop the tours and conduct research for the walks. The duo employ their knowledge and hope to deliver the heart-clenching fear that lovers of the paranormal often seek.
