Haunted in Southern California

Southern California is known for its many beauties, but lurking beyond the shadows, you will find much more!

Stony Brook Retreat – Opened in 1918, Stony Brook Retreat was a hospital for tuberculosis patients until the late 1930s. It’s since been abandoned, but that doesn’t stop the ghosts from hanging out! I was reading about Stony Brook on flickr, and there were several stories posted from visitors that had history with the hospital. Most of the hauntings at Stony Brook include children crying, and roaming the area in hospital gowns.

Griffith Park – One of the nation’s largest parks, and the second largest in California, Griffith Park is visited by many each year. The Old Zoo ruins are still on the property, but there is so much more to this area. The park is said to be haunted – and cursed – dating back to the 1800s.

Griffith Park is a nice place to take photographs. Who knows, a ghost might even sneak into your picture! Also located in Griffith Park, you can read about how the Hollywood Sign is haunted, riddles with a history of suicides and sadness.

Rancho Los Amigos – This haunt was built in 1888 as a hospital for the mentally ill, and was also known as the Los Angeles County Poor Farm at one time. Rancho Los Amigos was sort of a “catch all” for the mentally ill, elderly, and homeless. It was situated on hundreds of acres of property, but now the buildings have all been abandoned.

In more recent times, the U.S. Marines used the south campus for training drills. During one of these exercises, a freezer was opened and dozens of mummified body parts were found. Reading about this hospital’s past is both sad and interesting. I think it’d be neat to take some pictures of the abandoned buildings, though I’ve heard there is around-the-clock security so I’m not sure how close you can get.

Bessie’s Love Cabin is one more stop to put on your haunted tour list.
