Inside Machesney Park Mall Is A Disaster, Take A Look At This Current Video

Here is a current video of inside the empty Machesney Park Mall. I am not originally from Rockford but I have worked and lived here for a long time. The very first time I ever came to Rockford, I was very young so I really do not remember. My parents have told me about it. We came up to check out the Clock Museum inside the Clocktower Resort and have dinner at the Hoffman House. Years later, I would come back with some friends to spend the day at Magic Waters.

The connection to Rockford with this haunted farm is pretty crazy, but we will get to that in a bit. Welcome to "Willow Creek Farm" in Shannon, Illinois.
