San Luis Obispo County Ghosts

San Luis Obispo County is filled with ghosts and ghouls! From haunted cemeteries to spirit filled restaurants to haunted schools to ghostly cars, the county has it all. Here's a list of 21 different haunts throughout the county.

  • This Ole House - the ghost of John Vittey who died in a fire in the building still haunts this former restaurant. Other specters also lurk within the walls.

  • Frog and Peach Pub - the ghost of a murder victim lurks in the basement

  • Mission Prep High School - a ghost nun closes doors throughout the building.

  • Dorn Pyramid - Dorn Pyramid is a "knocking grave". On Halloween at midnight, knock 12 times on the door, and you should hear a thirteenth knock from inside the monument

  • Mission San Luis Obispo - a faceless monk, seen mostly in the gardens on full moon nights, haunts the mission. Additionally disembodied chants in Spanish have been heard inside the church.

  • Sunny Acres - a former juvenile hall, known for cramming too many children into its dungeon like cells, it was shut down in 1974. Now screams have been heard from inside along with the sounds of children laughing, doors being slammed, footsteps, etc. It is called "Hell's Acres".

  • Adelaida Cemetery - the ghost of Charlotte Sitton, wanders every Friday night from 10pm to midnight. She was the young wife of a minister who committed suicide in 1890 after her children died of diphtheria. She shows up in a long white nightgown and leaves flowers on her children's graves. The cemetery also has a caretaker ghost and a bleeding tree. The ghosts are known to steal car keys.

  • Lincoln Adelaida School - the teacher's fiance died in the mercury mines, and distraught over his death, she committed suicide hanging herself in the school. Her body wasn't discovered until the children showed up for school that day. Also later a fire killed several of the children. The ghosts of the school also cause engines to stall as frightened teenagers attempt to flee the site in the middle of the night.

  • Black Lake - The ghost of Agnes appears around midnight and walks across the surface of Black Lake. Agnes has no face, just eerie white light emanating from where her face should be.

  • Captain Cass's House - the ghost of the good captain still listens to music in the former music room.

  • Coffee Rice House - this former sanatorium still has the ghosts of its patients lurking within its walls. Oh and horrible blood stains that always return, no matter how hard you clean.

  • Pitkin Conroe House - the ghost of a nine year old girl still haunts the tower of this mansion.

  • Kaleidoscope Inn - in Nipomo this Inn has a few ghostly occurrences happening within it ranging from a woman dressed in a robe walking through a closed door before sitting down on the bed. Also beds have been found rumpled with distinct imprints on them and lights have been found still on after they were turned off.

  • Paso Robles Inn - the ghost of a man who suffered from a heart attack during a fire back in 1940 still calls from one of the hotel's rooms. He has called both the front desk and even 911.

  • Avila Beach Spirit - the ghost of a boy rumored to be named Mikey wanders around a cave at Pirate's Cove. He appears on full moon nights and it looks as if he can't leave the cave area. He often smiles at people, and then fades away before being able to speak. Legend states that he fell off the cliff.

  • Hearst Castle - the staff and tour guides refuse to talk about the castle's ghosts and will change the conversation if asked, denying their existence, but sometimes you can get them to spill when they're not at work, specifically how the security dogs have acted over the years to certain areas of the castle.

  • Piedras Blancas Lighthouse - white translucent figures are rumored to stand near the cliffs next to the lighthouse and gaze out to sea.

  • James Dean - James Dean's car (sometimes with James Dean himself) has been seen rocketing ghostly down Highway 46
