Even Fullerton’s Police Department is not without

its own hauntings, and will be one of the locations



Haunted Fullerton Walking Tours are held annually September through early November. An excellent way of exploring downtown Fullerton, this an event that titillates, year after year. We try to post this each year on our California Calendar of Events, but just in case we miss a season, check out the city of Fullerton web site. ci.fullerton.ca.us/

A ghostly hand selects the dinner music at one downtown Fullerton eatery, while an unseen prankster enjoys tossing pots and pans around at another. And at a third restaurant, a ghost has been known to belly up to the bar and hoist a few alongside his living counterparts.

These and other restless spirits of Fullerton, considered by many to be one of the most haunted cities in Orange County, will soon move out of the shadows and onto center stage when the Fullerton Museum Center launches its Annual Haunted Fullerton Walking Tours.

Locations to be visited can vary and may include the landmark Plummer Auditorium, where the spirits of Louis E. Plummer and one known only as the “angry woman” are said to watch the shows presented there; the historic California Hotel, now Villa del Sol; and the home of Fullerton’s first woman auto dealer.

Even Fullerton’s Police Department is not without its own hauntings, and will be one of the locations visited on the tours. While a most people enjoy a good ghostly yarn, the real draw of the tours is that participants learn about Fullerton’s colorful history, according to Fullerton Museum Center educator and tour coordinator.

Tours are a celebration of local legend and offer stories of another facet of Fullerton’s downtown history. The tours leave the museum and last approximately 2.5 hours. Ghost enthusiasts should be prepared to walk approximately 1.5 miles, and the tours will include climbing stairs. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a sense of humor with them.

The tour is not recommended for children under 13.

Reservations and further information may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545. Persons requiring special accommodations to participate in the tour are asked to notify the museum staff when making reservations.

The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Ave., one block east of Harbor Boulevard, in downtown Fullerton.
