The Whaley House – San Diego

The Whaley House

This Spooktober visit to the most haunted house in America, The Whaley House (according to the Travel Channel)
, located in Old Town San Diego, which is just a few minutes away from our San Diego RV Resort via Trolley. It is now a museum with 100,000 visitors each year. 

Thomas Whaley built the brick home in 1857 for him and his wife, Anna Whaley, they had 6 children. The house only cost $10,000 to build, but before the house was built, the land was the ground for the gallows, where a thief named Yankee Jim Robinson, was hanged from the hallows, 3 years before Thomas bought the land. The house served as a convenience store, a courtroom, and a theater, all of these are available to experience during the tour.

While the Whaleys lived in the house, they experienced the alleged paranormal phenomenon. Over the next years, 3 members of the Whaley family, passed away in the house. Now, for almost a century and a half, mysterious sounds and ghostly apparitions fill the Whaley House.

Here is a list of some of the famous ghost: Thomas Tanner haunts the theater, the cook haunting the kitchen, James Yankee Robinson hanged in the gallows, sentenced to death for stealing a boat. Violet Whaley, some people have seen a pale woman walking the halls in a white dress.
