The Most Haunted and Creepy Historic Sites of the Old Pueblo
If you want to hear about the haunted lore of old Los Angeles, you have to start at the historic center of the city; at the Pueblo of Los Angeles, founded in 1781. We are going to be taking a unique walk through the ghostly and the ghastly early history of the dusty pueblo that would become our great city.
We are going to be visiting a few historic and ghostly sites:
● The Campo Santo at the Placita Church – the once forgotten Catholic burial site of many indigenous people and early immigrants. We will talk about the disturbed souls, unearthed during recent development. We will pay our respects to the souls of the people whose bones still rest in this empty lot near the church. ● Fort Moore Hill – we will visit the forgotten original Protestant burial site, the first non-Catholic cemeteries; which was built over without removing the bodies; becoming the home to Los Angeles High School and later the central offices for Los Angeles Unified School District, today it is the site of the Grand Performing Arts High School.
We will also briefly mention the Jewish and catholic cemeteries that got built over in the surrounding area; the Old Jewish Cemetery and Old Calvary Cemetery, created near Chavez Ravine.
● The Avila Adobe – the oldest standing residence in Los Angeles, dating back to 1818. It has been used as a home, hotel, and even a temporary home for U.S. Troops. And it's also notoriously haunted, by possibly one of the wives of Avila, who was two times a widower. We will learn about the reported haunting of Encarnacion Avila, his second wife; she is said to regularly be heard crying inside the dwelling, and often seen in aspiration form in a rocking chair on the porch of the adobe.
● Pico House – this grand hotel was built by the last Mexican governor of California. Pio Pico was a man of great means, who because of his lavish lifestyle and bad grasp of finances lost everything to foreclosure. This grand former hotel is regarded as one of the most haunted buildings in the Pueblo. Is a proud but disgruntled Pio Pico responsible for the inexplicable sounds of footsteps and doors left ajar at this building?
● The site of the Chinese Massacre of October 1871 – the site of a race riot, where a mob of around 500 white and mestizo persons entered Chinatown and attacked, robbed, and murdered Chinese residents. Their ghosts of those lynched here are said to still haunt the dark alley.
● Pelaconi House – the oldest brick building in Los Angeles county, created by Italian immigrants in 1855; today it remains as the oldest Mexican restaurant on Olvera Street, the lovely La Golondrina Restaurant. It is claimed to be haunted by La Consuela – or “The Mistress,” a ghostly apparition who has been seen seen in the front stairwell looking out over Olvera Street.
● And lastly we will visit Union Station – This classic train station built in the 1930s has long been the final stop for many travelers, and also consequently the end of the line for many bloody bodies hidden in trunks. We will talk about one of the most gruesome cases in Los Angeles history which captivated the nation in October of 1931, the search for murderer Winnie Ruth Judd known as the “Tiger Woman”… and more aptly, the “The Trunk Murderess.” Do apparitions of Winnie and her blood-leaking steamer trunks still haunt the baggage claim? You be the judge of that!

ABOUT THE RIM OF THE BAY/RIMROVERS
The purpose of the RIM OF THE BAY patch program is to encourage hiking and to bring into the lives of our Scouts a "mountain top" experience. There are six Mountains that surround our area that you hike up. When you finish the first mountain you get a patch and a "rocker" with the name of the mountain. Rockers are awarded for each additional hike completed. All of these trips can be accomplished in a single day. There are camping sites at or near most if your plans include an overnight camp experience.
Mount Tamalpais Trail Route - this a 8.5 miles loop
Start at Pan Toll Parking Lot. Take the Easy Grade Trail.
At Mountain Theater, take the Rock Springs Trail.
At the West Poin Inn, take the Old Railroad Grade Fire Road to East Peak.
Return on Old Railroad Grade Fire Road to West Point In, then on old Stage Fire Road to Pan Toll Parking lot.
Elevation: 2,571'Elevation Gain: 1,081'
There is overnight camping at Pan Toll. It is first-come, first-served. One campsite can accommodate 8 people and 1 car. Information available at https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=471
BSA Native Plants Award Requirements:
1. Complete a day or weekend hike of at least 5 miles round trip.
2. Each Scout will begin a plant and tree log book for identifying at least 10 local native plants or trees. When completed the log book must contain an identifying sketch or picture of each plant and tree and enough words that will help the Scout to identify the plants and trees to others. (Note: If a Scout only knows how to identify an oak tree by its acorns then he would have one of the items for his log book. On the other hand, if a Scout knew the difference between a Coast Live Oak and a Canyon Live Oak, he would have two items for his log book.)
3. Each Scout will identify at least 4 local native plants or trees on this hike and enter them into the log book.
4. The local native plant and tree log book must be completed within 3 months of the hike. Scouts who have previously passed First Class requirement 6 must also make their own log book.
5. Each Scout should know how to identify local poisonous or irritating plants such as Poison Oak and stinging nettles and how to treat for exposure to them. (Tenderfoot requirement 11)
