This historic home in Garden Grove has long help the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in Orange County because of its numerous ghostly inhabitants. The original owner, Agnes Stanley, is one of the most well-known spectres that in her old age was unable to climb the stairs in her home and became physically weak. This made Stanley bitter and is something she held onto even into her death because her spirit appears at the staircase blocking others from ascending. Guests at times can find it hard to pass her and even go up the stairs.
