  • Famous Haunts (No debating please)

    Tis the season for scary stories so I decided to make another ghost thread. Only this thread is dedicated to the ghosts of famous people and their happy haunting grounds.

    Now I have heard storeis that Walt Disney haunts Disneyland, Abe Lincoln haunts the White House, George Washington haunts a Gettysberg battle field, Old Blue Eyes & marily Munroe Haunt a Nevada/california borderline casino, etc.

    Have any of you heard or know of any places that the spirits of famous people haunt? Now these places can be the haunting grounds of past celebrities, outlaws, presidents, innovators, etc. as long as they were famous.

    Well, I wish I could add something to this thread since it is the Season of Halloween. The Palm Springs area has hundreds of homes and estates that were built or bought by celebrities dating back to the silent era.

    Many of them even spent their retirement years here year round but I am not aware of any ghost stories, hauntings or sightings that are associated with anyone.

      Since I studied architecture in college, I took frequent trips to Palm Springs to study some of the great 1930-1950's domestic architecture there. My fave architect, Richard Neutra designed several really famous places. The Kaufmann house is one, really my favorite work from Neutra.

      Another is the Frank Sinatra house. Its privately owned, but I had the honor of getting to tour the place. It has an amazing piano shaped pool! But.... the cabana by the pool was creepy to me. Didn't look creepy or anything, very nice, 1940's chic. But the feeling there was very oppressive. I was there in the summer, but the cabana (which was not air conditioned) was actually cold! The owner told me that the cabana was the favorite hang out of Old Blue Eyes and some of his mobster cronies. I've often wondered if anything nefarious happened there!

        Hopefully Oogie Boogie can tell us some interesting places haunted by the famous.

        On Travel Channel they said that Ernest Hemmingway haunts his florida keys home.

              Interesting story about the Sinatra house experience. I've peeked over the fence if it's the one I think you are writing about.

                Silly Demigod, how can his ghost haunt a place when he's not dead?

                  It has an interesting patio cover on the "keyboard" side of the pool. The shadow from the patio cover strikes the ground and looks like piano keys.... very cool.

                          I've not read the rest of this thread--impulse made me hit "quote." But I believe she haunts several locales, including the Roosevelt Hotel (something about the mirrors in the lobby or hallway beside the elevators) right on Hollywood Blvd.

                          Another famous haunt by a celebrity is Talesin in Wisconsin, I believe. Frank Lloyd Wright kept his family and his mistress there at the same time-causing high stress for the whole family. A mysterious fire started there once, after all had long passed, and from that day forward, people believe it's either him or his mistress keeping to the grounds.

                          Happy Samhain, everybody!

                          Peace too,

                            Whoops...see? I need to have more coffee this morning. Didn't mean to repeat someone else's offerings. I apologize.

                            And, believe it or not (tho more rare-er then a standard haunting) people living CAN and sometimes DO haunt places whilst still living. There have been accounts of ghosts of people still alive but having a 'doppleganger' ghost somewhere else.

                            Of course, using Elvis as an example would probably not be the best of ideas!

                            Since he technically is immortal, right?

                              Frank Lloyd Wright is the famous architect right?

                              Off Topic: Fun Facts: The Lincoln logs are not named after Abe Lincoln, the are named after Frank Lloyd Wright's son who is named Lincoln.

                              Okay back to the main topic ).
