Located in Yermo, California outside of Barstow, Calico is said to be haunted by many spirits including those of children. This ghost town got its start in 1881. During its mining days over $20 million of silver was found. Today, visitors can see the restored buildings, take a mine tour or learn the history of the town on the train ride.
Many people have experienced odd sensations while visiting. Some have even caught glimpses of ghosts out of the corner of their eyes. Dark shadow people have also been spotted. At one time ghost walks were conducted on Friday and Saturday nights headed by Bill Cook. Cook no longer offers this service. However, if interested in finding out more about the local ghosts of Calico, Cook has a book available entitled The Ghostly Guide to Calico Ghost Town.
