A tragic family affair (literally) is the rumored source of the haunting at this former hacienda. The young son of the Embert family shot and killed a young woman who was rumored to be the father’s mistress. Discord and strife settled into the family and some years later, the father killed his wife in an apparent jealous rage. Barricading himself inside the home, he was then himself killed when the police arrived.
**Rancho de Corrales burned down in June 2012. No word on whether it is to be rebuilt or whether the hauntings remain post-fire.
