On July 21st 2005 I wrote about a spooky house in the town I live in and its billing on the web as "the most haunted house in the world". Link to Orginal Post
Well it has now burned down as of Tuesday morning under suspicious conditions. I have received so many emails about this blog posting from local residents, teenagers, and many others. I even had a local firefighter who was at the fire scene email me after he had read my blog about the house.
Perhaps this is the very last photo ever taken of the suspected haunted house. When I was there Sunday I pulled up and a car full of teenagers took off. The place has been a real magnet due to some believing the place was really haunted. I am not sure what I think about the place and if it really is haunted, but just the look of the place can give you the creeps.
I guess this is the final photo and story of the house at Haystack Landing.
Story from the local paper:
Haystack Landing house destroyed by fire
An early morning fire Tuesday gutted a well-known south Petaluma home, leaving nothing behind but a cement pad, fire officials said.
The historic Haystack Landing house, billed by some as "the world's most haunted location," burned to the ground shortly after 1:40 a.m. Tuesday.
Jerry Corda, chief of the San Antonio Fire Company, said engines from several departments responded to the early morning call but when firefighters arrived, "it was pretty much fully involved" and the home couldn't be saved.
"It must have burned pretty fast," said Corda, who lives near the property and saw the sky over a neighboring hill fill with an orange glow.
The house, built in the middle of a marshy area a few miles south of the city, dates to the 1800s and was once part of a port for ships traveling the Petaluma River. It was considered an important gateway to Petaluma.
"There’s a lot of history behind that building," Corda said. Firefighters prevented the flames from spreading further, he said. Corey Youn
