San Diego Ghost Hunters - William Heath Davis House Ghost Tours San Diego Ghost Hunters - William Heath Davis House Ghost Tours
The San Diego Ghost Hunters and William Heath Davis House Museum made the important decision to partner in a cause worth pursuing, saving San Diego's history and historical landmarks. Both the San Diego Ghost Hunters and Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation are non-profit organizations and strive to protect our history, for our children and children's children. Once our historical landmarks are gone, that is it! After hearing several reports from tour guests, docents and other San Diegans, sdGH spent months conducting paranormal investigations in the magnificent William Heath Davis home. Their experiences, photos and evidence captured are phenominal and it is the San Diego Ghost Hunters privelage to donate their time and introduce the public to the residence of past at the William Heath Davis House. Their goal is to not only help raise revenue for future renovations and upkeep of this beautiful home but also to bring awareness to the community.

William Heath Davis was the first man who would attempt to build what we know today as downtown San Diego. In 1850 he began his new town by the bay, through purchasing a shipment of prefabricated houses from Maine. They were shipped around the horn to the San Diego bay. In 1867 Alonzo E. Horton and his wife Sarah, traveled to San Diego with the plan of succeeding where Davis had failed. Horton purchased 960 acres of land and a one-half interest in the Davis house. He and Sarah lived in the house while Horton opened a real estate office in San Francisco and began selling his new land. Thanks to his shrewd business skills and timing he was able to begin the first real estate boom in San Diego. The Davis is the only house left standing in San Diego where Horton resided. The Davis house has been located on 3 lots during its lifetime: 1. State and Market Street (erected in 1850) 2. 11th and K Street (moved by horses in 1873) 3. And currently, 4th and Island (moved by truck in 1984) The house has been rumored to be haunted for years because of the many colorful characters who have resided in the house. Not only was the house a residence to many, it was also a hospital for about ten years where several deaths have been recorded from consumption and tetanus. The house was also an officer's quarters during the civil war era and reported to have a German spy in hiding who used the house for his purposes, later to be captured.

Mission: It has always been the San Diego Ghost Hunters purpose to help preserve the history and stories of landmarks in San Diego County and across the United States. We believe in the preservation of the William Heath Davis history and legacy. The former occupants play an integral role in that living history. It has been our pleasure to become acquainted with the previous occupants of the house and now we want to share that with public. We invite you to join the San Diego Ghost Hunters for their once a month investigative 2 hour ghost tours and meet them for yourself.

We had a great tour Saturday night. The spirits loved the tour guests and we had spirits speaking in real time. The guests were soooo excited. Madame Raoul came out and interacted with the tour guests as well. And you know Dr. Stockton, he loved the women. The children were interacting a lot Saturday night and playing with the toys. We set up some of their favorite toys that they have requested in the past. Once we came up to start the tour on of the mini trucks was laying there upside down. You could hear the spirits walking upstairs and at one point we heard someone walk upstairs and shut a door. It was such an active night and our tour guests were amazing. We loved their interaction and enthusiasm. Great night, great tour guests and great investigation. Thank you so much for joining us........

We had some friends join us in the William Heath Davis House last night from Washington State. What a great team Spokane Paranormal. Can't wait to work with them again!

Wow! The house woke up and made them feel very welcomed. George talked up a storm and gave his opinion on several subjects.

The Doctor really enjoyed talking to them with the divining rods. The house had a spooky vibe in most of the rooms.

In the kitchen one of the spirits threw a candy sucker out of the hand of one of our friends from Washington. At the end of the night I was telling George "Ok we are packing up and leaving and will be out soon" and he called me "Silly Maritza" and said out several times. He was letting us know he was done with us all! He also let us know he was tired and wanted everything to be quiet.

It was a great night and also having our friends from Washington there with us! Can't wait till the next investigation!

06/26/2016

What a great night at the William Heath Davis House last night. We had an awesome paranormal team join us in the house. We had a blast! It was quite active their battery packs would last only a few minutes and go out. We have to listen to the recorders but it sounds like we had some great voices. One of the guys on the team and I both heard a spirit say 7 when ask how many spirits were in the kitchen. Heard some interesting sounds all through the house and we were touched a few times.Saw some shadows walking around...All and All a great night with a wonderful group of guys that joined us in the house for a great tour! We hope you can come back and join us again in the house soon!

06/24/2016

Well it's that time again...........tomorrow Saturday night the William Heath Davis House will be waiting for sdGH and their June Tour guests to arrive. We are very excited to meet our tour guests and can't wait to see what the William Heath Davis has in store for us.

06/05/2016

On the May 28th tour we had a male Spirit who yelled something out loud at the doorway of the kitchen. We have the voice that a friend Louie captured on his recorder on the tour and sent it to us. 1st a woman said "Mickey Dolen" and then a man is at the door and yells "Vittels" in real time. Another spirit say's in a whispery voice "what the hell was that".
So I guess who ever it was...was hungry and was letting us know to get to it go to the market and cook up some vittles!
In the 1960's there were four teenagers living in the house. So we think that they were listening to Mikey Dolenz from the Monkey's and said his name! Wow what a great night!!!

06/02/2016

Wow! What a great tour we had. People were able to hear a voice out loud yell at them. Also several people were able to capture some very interesting ghostly pictures. One of the Doctors interacted with all the guest and gave his opinion to the group. We had a full house and everyone added to the experience.Thank you everyone...what a great tour.

The San Diego Ghost Hunters - William Heath Davis - Jack say Play - 4-23-15

You are going to love this evidence, captured on 4-23-15 last year. Founder, Maritza of sdGH and friends investigated the William Heath and boy were the children active that night. After laying out our toys for trigger objects, one little spirit of a boy who we know as Jack is so excited that the minute Maritza turns on her recorder he says "play". This is an amazing capture and we love that we can compare our other recordings that we have captured of the same little spirit. Maritza brought him a special treat this night, a new truck and Jack was ready. Check it out....

These other-worldly experiences are available to the public through monthly Paranormal Investigations tours, led by San Diego Ghost Hunters, a professional paranormal research team that conducts on-site investigations.

William Heath Davis House

Constructed by William Heath Davis in 1850, the house remains the oldest structure in what is now downtown San Diego.

The house is a pre-framed lumber "salt box" family home, from the East Coast shipped to California by boat around Cape Horn.

Davis, who never lived in the house, died in relative poverty. The spirit of an unknown Victorian woman however, still resides there today.
