Haunted Mendocino Walking Tour
Saturday, October 28, 5:00pm

Feel the goosebumps as you listen to the bone-chilling tales of some of Mendocino’s most infamous residents. You’ll visit the homes, hideouts, and hangouts of all the well-known specters, and learn a little of the town’s history along the way.  Gaze into a mirror where people have seen a woman in Victorian dress looking back at them.  Peer into the waves in search of a stallion and the rider who rode them both into the sea. $15-$25, 1.5 hours.
