There’s Nothing More Terrifying Than These 7 Truly Haunted Places In Northern California

Highway 49 was named after the California Gold Rush and the thousands of 49ers who flocked to this part of the world to strike it rich. This long and windy road will take you to 7 of the most haunted places in Northern California.

Lawlessness and debaucheries ran amok in Gold Country before the mining camps became established towns with churches and schools in the late 1800s. Before then, there were saloons and places of ill repute scattered all along Highway 49. Many of them are still standing today and known far and wide as still playing host to the spirits of the Gold Rush.

Follow in the footsteps of those intrepid 49ers by visiting all the haunted locations along this route.
