The Davis-Horton House: Alive with Spirits from the Past?
Find out for yourself. Touted by many as, “the most haunted house in the Gaslamp Quarter,” the Davis-Horton House has become a highly popular place for investigating paranormal activities — occurrences that fall outside of what’s considered normal or that can’t be explained scientifically. Paranormal research teams present evidence to support their claims of having made contact with several house spirits. They’ve recorded voices, taken photos, and shot video to document their surprising findings. These other-worldly experiences are available to the public through monthly Paranormal Investigations tours, led by San Diego Ghost Hunters, a professional paranormal research team that conducts on-site investigations.
Since space is limited, we require that you make reservations and pay in advance for the Ghost Tour and Investigation. You may make your reservation via our website, or you can call for reservations at (619) 233-4692.
Admission for this two-hour tour and investigation is $40.00.
When: Saturday, July 29 10:00PM
Where: 410 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101

The Top 5 locations with the most engagement on Instagram and email will be served at our 150th Anniversary Birthday Party (Date TBD) and ticket holders to that event will then vote for their favorite Dusty Rabbit!
