California Haunted House News

California is known as “The Golden State”, for the 1949 gold rush. The rampage was on, for the tens of thousands of people who flocked to California to “strike it rich”. One day you were dirt poor, the next you could be a millionaire. The travelers came by foot, covered wagon, or overseas in search of the riches they so desired. It was not always the miner who struck it rich, many of the wealthy were from the businesses with supplies for the miners. From clothing to pans, wood to food, these entrepreneurs brought about many of the companies that are still in business today. The others who just came to mine for gold, found the days long and the many unfortunate, became criminals just to survive. The estimates of the deaths of the unsuccessful were incredibly high, within six months 1 in 5 miners died. Lawlessness and racism amongst cultures were all around and you always needed to be up to any task. If you found gold, you needed to keep quiet for many would kill you, claim your stake, and steal your gold. Even the Native Americans were forced off of their land by foreigners to make way for mining or enslaved to work for them. It is believed that almost 100,000 American Indians died in the years of cruel brutality and violence that greed for wealth brought upon California. Miners came by swarm from all over the world, for the hope of finding riches beyond their wildest dreams. Many of these dreams turned into nightmares. Many miners found nothing and died from starvation or the brutal violence of vigilantes. California became a portal to all that was evil, wicked, criminal, and brutal. The mining went from panning for gold to using hydraulic equipment to mine for the precious metal. The immense greed of these companies destroyed the beautiful mountains and scarred the land. The surface of the land looked as if destruction was all that mattered and the evils of greed grew exponentially. Brothels, saloons, and gambling houses sprung up all around. The “California Dream” grew and grew and so did the number of people who perished from their greedy ways. The indigent people became forever lost in gold fever while alive and then a more horrendous purgatory after death, eternally searching for their claim. California is well known in the haunt world for the many souls who are lost between life and death, stuck in purgatory to eternally serve the under-lords every evil deed. The intense energy they expel helps the living keep them at bay for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately, they must return and do the bidding as part of their mission in purgatory.
