Haunted house at east end of Grand Teton Dr.
Several homes on this street go all out with haunted yards... ours included at 1949 Grand Teton Dr.. The Kearins, who had the really scary house pictured above, have moved away. They will be sorely missed on Halloween especially.
There is also a large free Haunted House at 593 Printy that collects donations for the American Diabetes Society.
Check out the house at 1601 Yellowstone Ave. Across from Rancho, near entrance to Murphy Park.
These places in Milpitas may really be haunted! Visit at your own risk.
Ed Levin Park Cemetery
The cemetery is now closed, but even in the daytime, electronics
will shut off, start on own, loud moans can be heard, flashes
of lights and car problems. Very cold in spots.
Empty Lot next to Arco on Abbott
Whole area is large, ancient burial ground for maybe hundreds
of people who all died suddenly and were stacked like cordwood
in this make-shift cemetery. Did they die from an epidemic or
attack? No one knows. The City inspectors have some information
about this, as they prevent further development in that area.
In 1981 a Milpitas High School student killed his girlfriend,
then brought his buddies to see the body. No one told the cops.
We'd prefer to forget this crime, but it was made into a movie
in 1987. Our "river" here being but that small creek
that runs along side of Calaveras Blvd. The film was made up
on the American River.
