October Hauntings

Experience the FULL MOON in Old Town!

Gold Country is known for its rich history of gold and its lesser known history of ghosts and hauntings. October is the perfect time to escape the city and adventure into the heart of "ghost of gold country" where Placerville, Georgetown and The National Hotel (in Jamestown) rank on the Top 10 Most Haunted Places in California. Some of these tours can be frightening, so they aren't for the feint of heart! Happy haunting!
