Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones Culinary Tour
Old Town is also considered to the location of many different hauntings. You will visit one of the oldest privet cemeteries in Southern California, El Campo Santo Cemetery. Built in 1849, this cemetery is home to 477 people. Visitors claim to see shimmering figures and have reported chills at this location, as well as misfortune to passing cars. This could be because part of the cemetery was paved over to make the road. The most commonly reported figures are an Indian or Hispanic man and a woman, both dressed in 19th century clothing. You will also see the house that the Travel Channel’s America’s Most Haunted has named as the most haunted house in the United States. Various specters are reported to have been seen at the Whaley House, including Thomas Whaley himself. He is usually seen in the parlor.
