The Whaley House
Located at 2476 San Diego Avenue in historic Old Town San Diego, the Whaley House stands today as a classic example of mid-nineteenth century Greek Revival architecture. Formally dedicated as a historic house museum on May 25, 1960 and open to the public ever since, it is one of southern California's most popular visitor destinations. Over 100,000 people visit the Whaley House annually, with guests traveling from across the globe to experience this world-renowned museum.
Members of APR visited this location earlier this year to give you a realistic report on whether you should make the trip to Old Town or save your money for something else.
When we arrived at the location for our investigation we were shocked at what we found. The historic home is situated in one of the most popular nightlife areas in all of San Diego. Tons of restaurants and bars line the very block that the Whaley House sits on. Essentially any recording device, audio or visual, is useless in this location. Any EVP's you capture are likely voices from nearby bar patrons who had a little too much sangria and any growling sounds are likely from the stomaches of the hungry restaurant goers nearby. Any video captured would be useless due to all the shadow play and lights from the busy street outside. There was so much contamination from outside sources that the investigation was over before it started.
While the Whaley House does have great historical significance, when it comes to anything paranormal, this place is not worth a dime. Save your money and take one of their fun, short, daytime tours and enjoy some great spirits next door at one of the local watering holes.
