Adelaida School - located around the corner from the Adelaida Cemetery, the school is also supposedly haunted. Back when it was still operational, a teacher committed suicide inside, hanging herself from the rafters after her fiance had died in the nearby Mercury Mines. Her body was not found until the children arrived for school in the morning. Her spirit has been spotted sitting in a chair inside the classroom or occasionally hanging from the rafters.

Also, a fire later on in the school's history also happened and several children are suppose to have died inside. Urban legend states that the ghost or ghosts of the schoolhouse will also cause car engines to stall, especially when frightened teenagers attempt to flee the site.

In addition to the schoolhouse, the local area has Adelaida Cemetery, a very old and spooky cemetery as well as dozens of wineries nearby. It should be noted that both the school and cemetery are on private property. The school is only open for special events. The cemetery is only open during daylight hours. Being in the cemetery after dark is trespassing and occasionally the county sheriff does patrol the area. This website does not encourage trespassing.
