Built in 1858, the Whaley House is one of the oldest structures in San Diego, and is considered to be one of the most haunted houses in America. The story of the pioneering Whaley family tells the history of early San Diego. With over 125 vintage photos and illustrations, old California comes alive. The History & Mystery of the Whaley House illuminates the history of the pioneer Whaley family and their magnificent 1850s brick mansion, dispelling myths and providing rediscovered facts and information about this popular tourist destination, and of the spirits known to inhabit it. Journals, letters, historical documents, dozens of fascinating historic photographs, and other ephemera culled from the Whaley House archives by SOHO staff help convey the legend of this remarkable historic house museum. It is one of six historic museums and sites SOHO operates.
