Whaley House Museum

Saves: 94
Check-ins: 21
When it was built in 1857, Thomas Whaley's house was the most luxurious in Southern California. It is no longer the finest but the Travel Channel has designated the 160-year-old house as the most haunted in the U.S. The ghost of a criminal who was hanged on the site before the house was built is said to be heard stomping around in anger. Another tragic death on the property was that of Thomas Whaley's forlorn daughter who at 22 fatally shot herself - abandoned by her con-artist husband. The museum offers nighttime "haunted" tours and holds Halloween extravaganzas.
