The whole town of Samoa is haunted,but Cadmen Court Street aka the street of abandoned houses is the worst. House number 18 has a haunted mirror in the upstairs bedroom closet. The bedroom upstairs on the right has the spirit of a little girl. The girl will actually talk to you. House 18 also has the ghost of an angry man that physically hurts people. Beware Samoa has no police and the abandoned houses are often visited by local witches,homeless people and tweakers.

    1. Beautiful location but all the doors and windows are boarded up now. Wanted to practice my necromancy as a “local witch” lmaooo. Might go back again.

    2. I am the last tenant that ever lived on Cadman ct. in Samoa ca
      If you have questions feel free to contact me
      Lots of weird stuff there
      My house was 13 cadman ct

    3. Samoa was built by John Vance in 1893 and his heirs on 270 acres . It was purchased by Hammond Lumber Co., which ran it until 1956 . It was then purchased by Georgia Pacific Corp. Then it was purchased by Louisiana-Pacific in 1972. Finally, it was purchased by Simpson Timber Co. in 1997

    4. Hey can someone please post photos of the haunted well behind peninsula school. I have heard several stories about it but have never seen it.

    5. I am very interested in investigating Samoa. I would be willing to speak with anyone who can provide any information on the locations within the town. Any special Hot Spots.

        The biggest hotspots are as said 18 cadman CT But I’ve seen some weird things happen around the fire station like floating lights n’ such and I’ve also seen that stuff at the super old playground I’ve seen what seemed like a cars headlights but it disappeared in front of my eyes on Vance.

    6. I lived in Samoa in the 80s. I went to Peninsula Union school. The swimming pool room at the school is rumored to be haunted by the spirit of a little girl. The pool used to get shut down constantly due to huntings in the dressing rooms and the pool room itself. There are also several other places in Samoa that are haunted, the abandoned Samoa store, the gas station next door, and the street of abandoned houses. BEWARE I don’t recommend visiting the town especially at night, there are no police and a lot of criminals hang out in the abandoned houses.

      The abandoned houses are no longer abandoned. Just looks like a regular town with people fixing the homes. Kids playing baseball in the field and lots of average joe people walking around dressed nice. Not very scary, and definitely not dangerous. Also, there are sheriffs.

    8. Make sense that lots of abandoned houses, since the whole place is directly Sunami prone big time. That would be extremely hard to sell off your house here, no takers and lots of no thanks. The Japanese Sunami that happened was a brutal warning for all of coastal communities around the Pacific Rim. Only the super poor people and fools would be buying houses on Samoa, CA when Eureka, CA is just across the narrow harbor to the East, inland. Then again, the abandoned houses were not anything different than you’d found in any cities or towns USA. And in this video tour here, it seems that still lots of houses are NOT abandoned, seeing the cars and trash bins in fronts and sides of houses. Seems like the negative news about Samoa, CA is heavy on the sides of personal opinions more than facts. My conclusion is that Samoa, CA is just as normal a community with its people living their lives like any place in the world. Live and let live. I really don’t understand why this little place got singled out for bad press.

    9. Greetings to all! I concur that the installation proceeded without any issues, and the audio quality is profound and authoritative. Emphasizing the enhanced dynamics and responsiveness of the vehicle is crucial. In summary, this update is outstanding! For those interested, additional details can be found regarding the flashark headers review. Moreover, it significantly enhances the aesthetics, making it worth considering without hesitation.
