From the vistas of Big Sur to the streets of Monterey, the souls of the dead still linger. The Mission San Carlos Borromeo, today known as the Carmel Mission, is the site of numerous unmarked graves from centuries past. Monterey’s Cannery Row once housed the lab of marine biologist Ed Ricketts, who was struck by a train there in 1948—some say on a quiet night you can still hear the sound of the wreck. In Salinas, the Steinbeck House is known for its charming atmosphere and delightful meals, as well as visits from John Steinbeck, despite the fact that he died in 1968. Join writer Patrick Whitehurst as he explores tales of the supernatural and Monterey County’s haunted locales.
