San Jose Ghost Stories at “We and Our Neighbors”

Love a good ghost story? You’ll have  chance to hear some Silicon Valley ghost tales on Saturday, October 16th, 2010 at 1pm. Deb Wible, who collects and chronicles San Jose area hauntings, will be sharing legends, history and experiences at the We and Our Neighbors center. (This neat old building is 100 years old, by the way!)

There is no charge to attend but donations are gratefully accepted.  If you wish to join in the spooky fun, please RSVP to

We and Our Neighbors is located at  15480 Union Avenue in San Jose (in Cambrian Park on the Los Gatos border – located at the intersection of Los Gatos-Almaden Road and Union Avenue). Parking is very limited at the site but you can park at the Union School District Office parking lot across the street – the group has permission to use it on weekends for events at the center.

Haunted Snowball Mansion in Knights Landing Sells

Gena Riede - Sacramento Real Estate Voice blogger and RealtorMy Sacramento Realtor blogger friend, Gena Riede, recently helped some buyers to purchase a home known as Snowball Mansion in Knights Landing that was reputed to be haunted. (Knights Landing is about 40 minutes by car from Sacramento.)  Her clients have now moved in and are experiencing some telltale signs that they may not be alone.  They hear noises – things like drawers opening and closing. Or the doorbell ringing but no one (apparently) there.

Gena tracks the sale through several posts on her blog,  Sacramento Real Estate Voice.Her most recent entry is this one: Are There Ghosts at Snowball Mansion? Here she details her clients’ experience since moving in and tells readers about the paranormal team that investigates it.  If you’d like to read her series in order, here are the earlier posts:
