Paranormal Investigation of the Davis-Horton House

Jul 28, 2018

The Davis-Horton House is alive with spirits from the past.

Touted by many as, "The Most Haunted House in the Gaslamp!" the Davis-Horton House has become a highly popular place for conducting investigations into paranormal activities. Paranormal research teams have made contact with many house spirits. They've recorded voices and taken photos and videos to document their amazing findings. We now want to share their other-worldly experiences with the general public.

Please make your reservations for the next investigation soon, as we tend to sell out early!

Be prepared to work with the San Diego Ghost Hunters, a professional paranormal research team, in conducting an on-site investigation. You may bring cameras, smart-phones, hand-held video recorders, and digital sound recorders. No professional media equipment allowed.
