Hauntings


There's nothing like a good ghost story to send shivers down your spine . . . and California is filled with them. In this section you'll find a variety of ghosts and ghouls to scare your pants off while you pass time around the good old campfire.

As we add more and more to this section, we will eventually try and categorize the ghosts by location types. As you can see, we've already started doing that on the right with Bridges, Cemeteries, Houses, Ships, and Businesses.
