More Haunted Places in Los Gatos
When people first hear that there are ghosts in Los Gatos, they want to know – right away – where they are! The old cemetery location doesn’t surprise them, at least not once they hear that there’s a former graveyard that now has shops residing there.
But aside from a final resting place, where else are there ghostly sightings and activities?
One of them is the popular Los Gatos party destination, The Opera House. Apparently it’s just too much fun to leave! Seriously, the ghost there is said to be a woman – she has been seen and heard so many times, by so many people, that it is one of the few spots absolutely not in doubt to be inhabited by a spirit of a former human being. One of the most remarkable things is not just that she has been seen and heard, but that she has even been photographed.
But not to worry, whatever her name is (there is some dispute about that), she is known to be benevolent. I spoke to several employees there myself a few years ago. Those who’d had an experience of her (not all had, but many did) all claimed that she was kindly, protective. One told me that this gal has a conscience. The worker wanted to sneak out early but amazingly, the door was unable to be opened until her shift was over. Scary? The woman I spoke with said no. “She was not about to let me leave early – this is a ghost who’s ethical”, she confided.
