Visalia, California Ghost Sightings - PAGE 12
(...continued from the previous page)|
Comment by JPL: This place referred too as ''The Rancho Blanco'' is a very old historical place from the early 1900s. 100s of Japanese, Chinese, Philippinos, Latino migrant workers dwelled in the six camps created by the owner John D. Martin. So many many people came and went, some died in the cabins from illnesses and other reasons. Some just left without telling anyone. Cotton wood creek runs right down the middle of the JD Martin Ranch are there are two hills called ''Bacon Hill'' where Native American Indians lived and had a sacred healing area. There are grinding holes and drawings, a small Indian burial ground found at the foot of the hill.
This doesn't mean the J. D. Martin Ranch is haunted but there could be a lot of unrested souls there.

I've been thinking about going back to the house on N. Jacob at Roosevelt where weird scary things happened and ask the current inhabitants if they have had similar experiences. I came to the conclusion that going back might not be the best idea, so I am writing and posting this online to see if any other people know about this place and will reply to this post.
We were the first people to live in the house. We moved in in 1969/70, and my father planted the tree that is still in the front yard that same year. My earliest clear memories occur in this house. Maybe it was the close proximity to the Visalia Cemetery, only one block away that caused all the weirdness. Regardless the cemetery was not a scary place to me. My grandmother lived one block away from it on Rinaldi, so it was just a huge playground with strange stones everywhere.
I was four or five when we moved into the house, and I began kindergarten at the school around the corner, Houston Elementary. My teacher was Miss Roller. Sometimes early in the morning I would be awakened by the sound of drawers and cupboards in the kitchen opening and closing and items like dishes and silverware being moved around. The sounds of movement were very loud. After my mother got up I asked her if she was cooking breakfast earlier, and she said no she was sleeping. We had this conversation more than once.
Then there was the night I saw the monster in the closet just black and barely in the shape of a person. I screamed, and my parents came running. Fortunately this only happened once. Another night I woken up by a light when the rest of the house was asleep, and the doorway to my room was glowing in a soft blue light. I was too scared to scream. I just tucked my head under the covers until I fell back to sleep.
