    Fun place to walk around. Strange things kept happening while I was walking around. Felt like someone kept touching my hair, then afterwards the guide told us Mr. Whaley is known for that! Spooky!

    Very enjoyable self-guided tour of a historical (and supposedly haunted) house. Knowledgable and friendly docents.

    We came here for an evening tour. They rush thru and you barely get a chance to ask questions or take pictures. They have another tour trailing right behind you and should really space the tours out.

    Docents love to chat and answer questions. Go when they first open and you will have the place to yourself!

    It's probably better to go at night for maximum creepiness. Daylight is disarming to ghostly activity I think.

    Nothing is better than the Whaleys' garden. The pepper trees provide such a nice shade and the hydrangeas are HUGE!
    We already knew it was haunted, but didn't know it used to be a granary, County Court House, San Diego’s first commercial theater, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, & a polling place! Cool stuff :)

    I had an eerie encounter in the courtroom, I heard a voice whisper across the room and nobody was there, also heard sounds of chairs sliding but nothing was moving.

    Fascinating to see everything as it was when the Whaleys lived there. Check out their events page for a schedule of ghost tours:

    I had a few instances of strange things happening here. My camera kept turning red in the view screen when I've never had that happen before. I also felt like someone pulled my hair in the courtroom.
