Welcome to the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House Downtown San Diego’s oldest building and claimed by many to be its most haunted building. Spirits have been said to have inhabited the House throughout its history but recording only began after the House’s conversion to a museum in the 1980s.

Visitor and staff encounters with the paranormal abound both day and night; lights are known to turn on after hours, electronics batteries drain faster within its walls, footsteps creak in empty rooms, and rocking chairs are used by the unseen. Luckily, most spirits that reside within these walls are friendly and more likely to be inquisitive than malicious. The paranormal experiences told here are recounting of staff and visitor stories, whether true or not, it’s up to you to decide. Perhaps you will have your own unexplained encounter to share with us.

Please watch your step as you wander the halls, the old floorboards and door thresholds can be uneven. 

Have you had an experience in the Davis-Horton House that you would like to share?
