Stettin Spook Lights

Location:   Stettin, Marathon County, Wisconsin


The Reputed Phenomena:  

It is alleged that a farmer living in Stettin (pronounced ste-teen') observed some mysterious lights that floated through the air and passed between his barn and house. 


The Investigation:  

We interviewed a town employee who had never heard of the spook lights.  Other old timers, including Leroy Busch who had been the town clerk for 52 years, had never heard any stories about the lights.  We also checked with the Marathon County Historical Society and the Wausau Headquarters Library and were unable to locate even one person who had ever heard of any reports of this anomaly.

Eventually we found an article in the February 18, 1993 issue of the Wausau Daily Herald about a Gordon Mathwich who lived in Stettin and had reported seeing the lights on his farm.  He later renamed his farm "Will-O-The-Wisp Acres" and had put up a sign with that name on it.
