Dia de los Mu***os

In 2010, SOHO founded the first Old Town San Diego community-wide Día de los Mu***os celebration.
The holiday, known also as Day of the Dead, is observed annually ONLY on November 1 and 2 and celebrates the unity of life and death.

This holiday is deeply meaningful in any year, but in this time of COVID, with an inconceivable number of lives lost it is essential that people know of multiple ways to grieve and also to commemorate the lives of deceased loved ones.

SOHO has put together a wide-ranging and comprehensive array of FREE online resources to celebrate Día de los Mu***os virtually this year that includes the history and culture, traditional foods and recipes, and a robust section on arts and crafts activities.

Dedicated to remembering and honoring those that have passed before us, it is also centrally focused on the artistic expression of the living through the creation of ofrendas, arts, decorating, cooking, and more.

San Diego is known for many novelties, from speakeasy cocktail bars and California tacos to hidden trails and seaside escapes. But one unique aspect of San Diego that often gets overlooked is its fabled haunted history. With Halloween just around the corner, here’s a look at seven of the most popu...

Pandemic has squashed most Halloween plans, but demand for alternative celebrations is booming

"Meanwhile, in Old Town, one of the nation’s most famously haunted homes — the 163-year-old Whaley House — is offering tours of the virtual kind through Oct. 31. Usually, in the month of October, the historic museum draws up to 9,000 ghost-seeking visitors, but it’s been closed since the pandemic struck in mid-March. Instead, the museum’s operator, the Save Our Heritage Organisation, is raising money for the home’s upkeep with a new filmed tour led by SOHO historians Dean Glass and Robin Lakin. For a $10 streaming fee, viewers can virtually visit the halls, stairwells, rooms and grounds of the 1857 Greek Revival home that Travel Channel has called the most haunted house in America."

Are there any plans to open up now that restrictions are lifted?
Will you be opening to the public soon?
Sure have been missing this house that is full of mystery and history this covid sure has made it hard for all businesses and well historic sights too maybe one day things will be open again
A photo my daughter and I took about a year ago in one of the upstairs bedrooms. I raised my camera above the plexiglass wall to take this photo. Notice the 4 orbs. Two on the bed and two under. When you zoom in you'll see a couple have color and a couple have a brighter white outline. We thought this was very interesting. If you have any thoughts please share.
Hey Whaley House, what are these for?
No comment.
What is on this wall?
Orb on fireplace.
Two photos snapped one after another. Orbs in one, odd red thing on left in the other.
What are these little arrow things? Are they on the wood?
I located some of my photos from my visit in 2013. See the screaming ghost face far right.
Hi!! I have had the pleasure of visiting this museum twice now and each time has been a wonderful and eye opening experience! I snapped a few pictures from each visit and found a few to be quite intriguing. So I thought I’d share them with you guys! 😊
