Here is the story according to MysteriousHeartland:

A broken-hearted woman (Nellie Dunton) is said to haunt this home overlooking the Kishwaukee River. Nellie grew up in Belvidere prior to the Civil War and fell in love with an older man, who promised to marry her after the war...That is trouble right there.

When he failed to return from war...That is when Nellie refused to fall in love again. She spent the rest of her life in this house in Belvidere overlooking the Kish River.

As time went on and she remained alone, she wandered into the river, drowned, and died.

Some people say she was wearing her old wedding dress when she went into the Kishwaukee River and died.  Her ghost has been seen by residents of this home, as well as by its neighbors....Yikes man, yikes!
