About
Upon first glance, the Whaley House looks like a beautiful picture of mid-nineteenth century architecture - nothing out of the ordinary about it.

The world-famous Whaley House is said to be the most haunted house in America. This two-story Greek Revival-style mansion was designed by San Diego pioneer Thomas Whaley and completed in 1857.

Between 1868 and 1872, various rooms in the Whaley House were used as a general store, San Diego?s first commercial theater, and the San Diego County Courthouse and Whaley family members lived in the house for nearly a century. Now a San Diego County Park, the Whaley House and grounds are operated by Save Our Heritage Organisation, San Diego?s historic preservation organization who are in the process of restoring the museum?s complex.

After touring what the San Diego Herald once called the ?finest new brick block in Southern California,? relax in Victorian gardens beneath the pepper trees planted by Anna Whaley nearly 150 years ago.

Whether the house might be haunted or not is up for debate, but the numerous paranormal events at the Whaley House that have been documented since the 1960?s might make even a skeptic wonder.
