Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Palm Avenue

Penngrove, California

For the past fifty years, the lone road in this small town has been haunted by strange noises. It is said that during quiet summer’s nights horses are heard galloping down the road, though there are no horses there. Many others have heard horses galloping toward them in broad daylight, while they have seen nothing.

I lived on this street from about the age of 2 to 11. I havent experienced anything with horses, but one night i saw an image of a little boy walk across my livivng room, turn around, sit on my couch & slowly fade into it. & as for haystack landing, they condemned that spot awhile back.

Sorry, Casey, but apparently Haystack Landing is no more, and hasn’t been there for the last three years…(see below) :

I have heard from people at the Black Cat bar that there are ghosts that inhabit both bar and restaurant. As for haystack landing, it might be condemned, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still something there. The old smoke house and slave quarters still stand and when my husband and I trekked out there it was very much still alive. Areas of dead cold had the long grass in a crop circle type of look, and between the smokehouse and a bunch of trees the temperature skyrocketed then went right back to the chilling night air. I don’t know what exactly is true and not but I know what I experienced and haystack landing is VERY dangerous and should not be built over.

I feel as a history teacher I would be negligent in my duty if I did not correct Sarah. First of all California was admitted into the union in 1850 as a Free State. In free states slavery was illegal so I’m sorry to report there are no “slave quarters” at Haystack landing.

I grew up and lived in this area all my life and have never heard of this. I’d be more inclined to investigate General Vallejo’s Adobe on Old Adobe Road, The Mystic Theater in Petaluma, The La Rose Hotel and the McDonald Mansion in Santa Rosa or the Washoe House (a Pony Express stop) on Stoney Point Road if I wanted to find hauntings

There is one house in Petaluma that is really bad. It’s at 200 West Street. The Lundholms, Cordas, and Patocchi families lived there. Now abandoned, The old house is being saved, but the rest of the acreage is going to have 6 to 8 small homes built there.
