    1. A ghostly girl in white has been seen on the second floor, as well as a figure of a woman with no eyes in the rose garden. I have seen the little girl several times. She looks out the windown of the children’s room. There ia also a creepy doll that seems to move about by itself. It is also in the children’s room.

    2. My grandpa who cant read or write or speak english was riding his bike in the morning to work around 4-5am and he said he saw a lady with no eyes and she would disappear when he would get close to her and she sometimes screams and it echos. But he sees he in a different area.

    3. Years ago my sister, niece and nephew and I went out to Olivas Adobe. It must have been a Sunday, because they were closed. But we walked around for a few minutes and decided to leave. Packing the kids back in the car, my 2 or 3 year old (at the time) nephew points at a window and says…”The lady!” I knew it was haunted but didn’t know the details until recently!

    4. I was called to Secure the area while a party was taking place, as a security guard I am told to make patrol rounds around the property and make presence known… well as I was walking toward the house I felt some small rocks thrown at me. I had mistaken some children to had thrown the objects at me but no one was there. as I continue to walk in front of the home next to the windows on the lower level I felt as if someone was watching me and I had seen a light on with a doll next to the lamp which made me think “well someone is possibly in the home or a staff member had been in the room” so I hurried back to where the party was at and finished my shift with nothing else happening. at the time I had no idea of it being haunted due to being new to the County, until I had found this website it all made sense of what was going on that night.

    5. i took a ghost trip there with richard senate. while the tour was finishing up there was a guy with a stick attached to an extra large trash bag. i looked at a lady and said ‘ must be misses hefty’ the lady and i laughed out loud…….i had to be at work in the early am. so as i got up the stove top burner turned on by itself ; i justified it by my arm hitting it -it was a very old stove ; you had to use a little strength to turn it on. so as i was leaving the house there was this huge swirling ball in the corner ceiling of my home. this energy was changing colors. i got a chill up my spine and ran out the house.

    6. I was there one afternoon to take a look at the stairs that go from the bottom floor to the second floor. The stairs were the original ones and through the years and the hundreds of thousands of visitors they were needing to be replaced but kept as original as possible. I was the only one there and the time but it was in the middle of the day so I went and started to remove the back of the stairs to see if the stringers needed to be replaced. While I was removing the underside of the stairs, I heard a loud smack coming from the small room across the from the stairs. I looked around and thought that a golf ball hit a tree so I kept on removing the planks from under the stairs then I heard it again only twice as loud as the first time. I looked around and saw no one then I got chills all up and down from my scalp to my toes. I nailed the planks that I removed back up, got my notebook and my tools and got the heck out of there.
