Haunted Tours Return to Fullerton!

Have you ever wondered if there’s ghosts in Fullerton?

According to North Orange Co. Paranormal Society there is indeed paranormal activity.

The Fullerton Museum offers tours of some of these haunted places to satisfy our sick and twisted fascination with ghosts.

Amongst the roster are places such as Villa Del Sol, The Brownstone Café, Le Potager and The Fox Theatre.

Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, the tours visit many locations in which people did in fact die at.

Deaths range from Peter A. Schumacher who was found hanging from his chandelier after committing suicide, to the death of a toddler who drowned in a waterway underneath Harbor Blvd.

Activity has been said to occur at these places, such as a knife falling from nowhere in the Fox Theatre, sounds of children in Angelo & Vinci’s Ristorante and the humming of a woman inside Le Potager.

North Orange County Paranormal Society looked into each one of these cases and found evidence that explains the activity such as stabbings in the balcony of the Fox Theatre, the child drowning in the waterway next to Angelo’s & Vinci’s Ristorante and Le Potager being the former home of Lillian Yeager who also died on the second floor where the humming occurred.

If that’s not enough to make you poop your pants, the team has a recording of a child saying “Oh no” while on the top floor of Angelo’s & Vinci’s Ristorante. Keep in mind, there was no child in the room.

The tour unveils many beautiful places such as the unique and festive inside of Le Potager, the breathtaking inside of Angelo & Vinci’s Ristorante and serves as an excuse go inside the Fox Theatre which currently has an absolutely glorious restored ceiling with current renovations underway.

North Orange County Paranormal Society’s Sam Neill, Shawn VanEeckhoutte, and Jim VanEeckhoutte all attest to the activity, who are a science based team that investigate paranormal activity. If you live in the North OC area they will even come check out your activity in your home.

The tours will be held until November 10 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. that last until around 8:30 p.m. The tours also have an open house in the Fullerton Museum classroom at 5 p.m. where they show evidence they’ve found on their searches, as well as answer questions.
