The Historic Call House at Corona Heritage Park and Museum
The historic 1902 two-story white clapboard house is rumored to be haunted by the Call family.
The haunt’s bloody history began in 1913 when A.F. Call was out with his driver in his new car.
At some point in the day, A.F. attempted to drive the car himself.
Local historian Kathleen Dever claims that he was attempting to move it, but because he wasn’t used to the gears in the new vehicle, it stalled on a railroad track and was hit by a train. His head was said to have landed 75 feet away from the incident.
This accident follows the death of A.F. Call’s son, Merrill, who was killed by the Yaqui in 1905 when he was inspecting the mines in Mexico. The house was relocated to the Corona Heritage Park in 2005, and many believe it brought the restless Call ghosts with it.

At the end of a dead-end street in the hills of Corona is an abandoned burn site colloquially known as Hell’s Gate.
The site was once a home in the 80’s to a couple with two children.
The parents were on vacation for the weekend and had left a nanny in charge of their children, but the nanny was possessed.
She locked the children in the basement, and the house burned down with all three people inside.
Visitors say they’ve experienced cold spots, objects moving on their own, and toys appearing and disappearing in the basement.

Formerly J.J Live Oak Steakhouse and El Cerrito Inn long before that, this local hotspot is said to be haunted by a waitress who was strangled and left in the trunk of a car behind the Inn in 1988.
Her ghost has been said to confuse employees by ringing the food bell at random and flushing toilets at closing time.
The oak tree out front that the former steakhouse was named for is said to have been used for hangings and may also be a source of paranormal disruptions.

Yorba Family Cemetery
This site is home to a ghost known as the Pink Lady, who appears at night on June 15th every other year.
Despite her mature name, the Pink Lady is thought to be the ghost of a teenage girl who died on her prom night.
She was wearing a pink prom dress and was killed with her boyfriend by a nearby train.
One local claims to have climbed the fence to hang out in the cemetery, only to be overwhelmed by loud phantom noises. When they fled to the gate, the locks were gone, and the gate was wide open, urging them to leave.
