Whaley House

Reports of moving objects, spirit sightings, unexplained cigar smoke or perfume smells, and "cold spots" have made the Whaley House one of the most haunted houses in the US. If that is not enough evidence, then consider that the house was built on grounds where public hangings used to take place in the 1800's. Above is a photo of a section of the parlor at the house.
When we visited we didn't see any ghosts or experience any of the above, but we were told that there was even a dog ghost that sometimes comes out to visit. Hauntings aside, the house holds a significant place in our city's history as it housed the first commercial theater, a courthouse, and a general store.
