Looking to spook some of your friends? Trying to get in the Halloween spirit? You have come to the right place. I will be sharing my top 5 Halloween Haunted Bay Area locations, guaranteed to put you in the most terrified mood, possible.
The Winchester Mystery House -San Jose, Ca
Not based on a true story… this IS THE TRUE STORY. The widow of William Winchester (creator of the Winchester rifle) built up this house for over 30 years in order to hide from the spirits of those who were killed by her late husband’s invention. A psychic told her that if they find you… they will kill you too. So she built hundreds of fake staircases and doors and rooms that led nowhere, in order to confuse the spirits. The spirits still haunt the house to this day. You can take a tour by flashlight, and gamble if you will ever come out alive..
16th and Castro -Oakland, Ca
You may think that it is a regular neighborhood, by the homes and trees that line the street. For over a century, residents have reported numerous ghost sightings. From twirling under street lamps to doorbell ditching to items missing and turning up in mysterious places… Mark this community for trick or treating… if you dare!
Lone Tree Cemetery -Hayward, Ca
If you having been searching for a venue for your next séance.. This is it. The cemetery's founding legend holds that once upon a time, an eloping couple's furious parents killed them on the spot where the cemetery now stands. After nightfall, strange sounds and calls for help can be heard as well as lights that shine in the distance, but come from nowhere.
1000 Lombard St. - San Francisco, Ca
Just because you didn’t get an invite, doesn’t mean you want one.. This gorgeous house, located on one of the most iconic street, is haunted. When social columnist Pat Montandon held a “zodiac themed” party at her house in the 1960s, the tarot card reader she hired got angry when she didn't give him a drink. He cursed the house with freezing spells, blood stains on the ceilings, and disembodied screams. The house has a streak of vandalism and robberies. Gusts have committed suicide and mysteriously killed. I would cross the street before walking in front of this house, just to be safe.
The Vestry –San Francisco, Ca
It’s not the music giving you chills at this popular concert hall. It’s the little girl who lives there.
The Chapel was built back in 1914 and was originally a mortuary. Since being renovated into a music venue and adjoining restaurant, the noise is obviously too loud for this girl to enjoy her final resting place. She has been seen pulling pranks on visitors and has be captured on surveillance footage, numerous times. You’ll definitely get a show to go along with your Halloween dinner.
