El Campo Santo Cemetery

Spirits and cold spots have been reported in the El Campo Santo Cemetery in Old Town where Native Americans and early San Diegans are buried. The cemetery was established in 1849 and is the second oldest in the city. The oldest cemetery in the city and in California is at the Mission San Diego de Alcalá.Transportation lines (for horse-drawn carriages, streetcars, and a eventually a paved road for cars) were built over some of the cemetery. Click here to see "grave markers" that are now embedded in the sidewalk on San Diego Avenue where there were once graves.
