5 of the Most Haunted in California, USA – Most Haunted Marathon Series

The phantoms of five of the most haunted places in California are eager to tell their spooky stories. Here are our spine-chilling picks from the Golden State.

  • Preston Castle, Ione CA

With the historical pain and suffering endured at the Preston School of Industry, there is no doubt why the Preston Castle is one of the most haunted places in California. The history of the castle is baroque and Dickensian enough even without the ghosts, but the tortured soul of the murdered Anna Corbin and 17 boys whose graves line the sites cemetery tell creepy tales of this early reform school.

  • Alcatraz Federal Prison, San Francisco, CA

Located in the chilling waters of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island and Federal Penitentiary has a long and checkered past. From the first recorded visit of Juan Manuel de Ayala to becoming a military base to the creation of ‘The Rock’ by prisoners themselves, paranormal activity is rampant and gut wrenching.

  • The Oman House, Beverly Hills, CA

Another favorite of ours is the Oman House. Said to have been built upon cursed land, owner David Oman has documentation of supernatural activity starting as soon as construction began. Oman believes that the spirit of Sharon Tate is one of the restless ones that frequents the property. Some believe the house is a containment vessel because of the geomagnetic energy that surrounds the property.
