The Kellogg House Ghosts & Legends
Click above to check available dates for tickets

In 1898, Hiram Clay Kellogg built one of the first Neo-classical Victorian homes in Orange County. After his first wife died, he built a mansion as a gift for his second wife, Helen. His obsession with tall ships led him to design a three-story spiral staircase arranged around a central mast with a bottomless crow’s nest. In 1921, Hiram died in the home, but Helen lived another 42 years before she died in the very same home. Presently, certain unexplained phenomena indicate that the ghosts of the Kellogg family may be actively haunting the uniquely designed mansion.

$32 per person. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Haunted OC After Hours Tour: Spirits & Legends of Bowers Museum
October 22, 2022

First opened in 1936, the Bowers Museum has educated and enchanted people from all over with its exhibits on local and world history as well as preeminent presentations on culture and art from around the world. After the lights are dimmed and the crowds disperse for the day, something else may inhabit the museum as well. For decades, many of the employees and some of the guests have told stories of paranormal encounters they have experienced at the museum. Could it be the spirits of the Bowers family keeping watch over their museum or perhaps a spectral attachment from some of the countless antiquities on display? Join Haunted Orange County’s historian and author Charles Spratley for an exclusive after-hours tour as you explore the spirits and legends of Bowers Museum.

Tours begin promptly at the advertised start time as noted on your confirmation and run approximately 90 minutes.
