Why is Los Angeles So Haunted?

Los Angeles is the home of the American Dream. But before Hollywood was the center of the world, it was a lush desert inhabited by the Tongva and Chumash tribes. When New Spain achieved independence from Spain, Los Angeles became the capital of Alta California. Petroleum was discovered in California in the late 1800s, which led to rapid growth at the turn of the century.

 

At the same time, the film industry was rapidly growing in Hollywood, which merged with Los Angeles in 1910. After World War II, suburbanization led to massive sprawl. Development spread into the nearby San Fernando Valley and gave birth to LA’s infamous car culture.

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN LOS ANGELES, CA

The Hollywood Roosevelt

Named after President Theodore Roosevelt, this hotel has seen its fair share of celebrities, both living… and dead. This popular location is a hot spot for ghost hunters as it’s said the spirit of Marilyn Monroe still frequents the building.

The Hollywood Wax Museum

Behind the chillingly accurate wax figurines, depicting everyone from Michael Jackson to Dale Earnhart is something far more devious. Spirits haunt the old Wax Museum, and they've been captured on video and reported by numerous visitors.  

The Hollywood Sign

Ablaze in the night sky, The Hollywood Sign has become a beacon of hope and amusement in American society. But in 1932 the Hollywood sign represented something far more sinister for the thousands of Angelenos basking in its shadow.
