Whaley House: Halloween Nights 2017

Float by the storied abode for an atmospheric fall excursion.


IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORIC HOMES, you are likely acquainted with The Whaley House Museum of San Diego's Old Town. And if you know your ghost-laden locations, those venues that are believed to be awash in supernatural activity, well, you also know the Whaley House, which is said to be one of California's most spirited structures. Both history fans and phantom buffs make for the handsome home for tours, talks, and special events. And because there's some crossover there — many a Whaley lover is both fond of the past facts and bump-in-the-night tales — you're bound to see a number of visitors expressing an interest in both areas. But the haunted side of this finished-in-1857 house truly shines, or, rather, flickers with a candlelit glow, come October, when The Whale House Museum holds a host of eerie occasions in honor of a certain October-ending holiday. And the...

HALLOWEEN 2017... events are up now, meaning you can plan your beyond-the-veil sojourn to the San Diego landmark. There's a Whaley House Ghost Hunting Tour to join on Oct. 13, 14, 20, and 21, while "The Spectre of Edgar Allen Poe" will call upon the home on Sunday, Oct. 15 for "two riveting performances." Fancy a night of silent film (of the scary sort)? Be there on Oct. 25. And a number of nighttime doings, including a late-night event on Halloween, are ahead for the final five days of the month. What's your shivery pleasure? Straight-up history, about first owner Thomas Whaley and his family, or tales of all of the many (many many) sightings that have occurred under the home's roof? Find your way into the frightful season via these Whaley House events.
