Real Haunted House in Etiwanda
There is another haunted house in Rancho Cucamonga, although this one is located in the Etiwanda section of town. The haunted house is now located on Etiwanda Ave just south of Baseline Road, having been moved there from its original location at the corner of Baseline and Etiwanda Avenues in 2003. This house is historical, built around 1900, which is why it was preserved when the property owner sold it to KB Homes. The southern mansion style of this well preserved house stands out among the moderns homes surrounding it so it is easy to find.
For nearly ten years i lived just behind the old house in the caretaker's cottage on this 10 acre property. Our house was demolished to make room for new homes. i had many opportunities to visit the house since i provided the landlady with some minor maintenance services between tenants. There were many tenants during this decade, no one stayed long after their year lease expired. I gave tours to some prospective tenants and many curious friends who admired the house. I never forewarned anyone of the strange occurrences at the house, letting them find out for themselves.
Everyone agreed this house was haunted and occupied by spirits. One tenant was pushed flat on her face with her family witnessing. I once found a member of a cleaning crew standing outside shaking badly. He was reluctant at first to explain but finally told me the bucket of water he was using to wash the floor which was across the room was turned upside down right before his eyes. One previously enthusiastic couple suddenly refused to follow me upstairs to view the second floor, claiming "a powerful feeling that they werent welcome up there". Many noted the strange coldness in the front bedroom, though it should have been warm from the afternoon sun. I never HEARD anything strange but the events in that house could not be explained away.
Now I wonder if the spirits moved with the house around the corner or perhaps stayed with the land, occupying the new homes.
