Detailed Description:
The Whaley House is the oldest brick structure in San Diego and is deemed America’s Most Haunted House by the Travel Channel. Restored and maintained by Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO), the Whaley House is in historic Old Town. It was built in 1855 and finished in 1857 by Thomas Whaley. The building has been used as the Whaley family residence, the county courthouse, San Diego’s first commercial theater, a general store and a museum (since 1960). The Whaley House complex includes the Whaley House, the Verna House (which is the Museum Shop), two Downtown San Diego false front store buildings (they were moved from Downtown San Diego in 1964 and currently hold the New Orleans Creole Cafe), the Derby-Pendleton House (a 1850 structure moved to Old Town in 1962) and a gazebo area. The House is said to be haunted because there have been a lot of reported and rumored deaths on the property including people who have been hanged on the property and the Whaley family (Thomas Whaley and his wife along with their daughter who committed suicide here and their great-granddaughter who experienced a tragic death here).
