Ghost Stories in Fontana / Rancho Cucamonga

At Fontana's Etiwanda Intermediate School, In the old auditorium, next to what is now a cafeteria, there is a narrow staircase leading up to an upstairs dressing room.....The room contains one window and you will sometimes catch a glimpse of a young Indian girl standing at that window......The story states that this young girl of the 70's committed suicide by hanging herself and was found when someone of the staff spotted a body hanging through the window.....Like the body we saw hanging once from the over pass of the railroad bridge at Red Hill....When we turned around it ws not there....Or was it?

On Foothill Boulevard in Fontana, between Cherry and Citrus, a young man will appear wearing a striped shirt and carrying a long stick.. The ghost then crosses the street right as cars approach. When the car hits its breaks, the ghost of the man disappears.. Witnesses also claim to see the ghost walking along the right side of the road... He has a black dog at his side... Now wait a minute, I thought this was just a homeless dude who was always walking down Foothill towards the Hardware store.. Now Its a ghost....When did that happen?

At the Mango Elementary school in Fontana, there is a tree and they say a little girl used to clime on it every day. One day she got mad at her parents and she went to the tree and then when she was on it she fell off the tree.. I don't know if she was injured, killed or what but the kids at the school say that if you touch the tree you get the demon feeling.. I don't know what that is.. The demon feeling?  Does that mean they all feel need to be little demons....I had better be careful, here I am making fun of ghosts.

There seem to be an unusual number of haunted schools in Fontana....Could it be something about the old Kaiser Steel Mill? At the Mary B. Lewis Elementary in Fontana, the haunting take place between 11pm and 4am... You can hear footsteps when there is nobody there and in the bathrooms for both boys and girls you can hear the distinct sound of a toilets overflowing and even a conversation going on when both the bathrooms are locked... There are loud bangs in the night and the whispering and the strange feeling of another presence is felt... Yeah, lots of other presents, in the guise of lots and lots of poop.

At the Fontana Tokay Elementary school there are sounds of a dead construction guy working away on through the night... I wonder why only at night?

And last but not the least is the Red Blooded Haunting Of Sequoia Middle School.. In an area by the lunch tables there sits a little girl crying bouncing a ball... She'll ask you to play with her and if you say no she will start to cry and blood will begin to flow from her mouth, nose and eyes and then she will start to follow you, until you run screaming from the school yard.. This happens at sun set when there are no employees.. Does it matter that there are no employees, or was one of the employees the cause of her death, hummmm?


Etiwanda Intermediate is in Rancho Cucamonga (in the area formerly known as Etiwanda) not in Fontana

I went to EIS (last year was my last year there)
and I never had experiences there but I do know some people that have had experiences and I did see grave stones at the school.

Ive lived right behind Seqouia for years and i use to visit the school when i was younger to run and always passed through the middle of the school before sunset and even dark i have never encountered a little girl with a bouncing ball.

I went to the seqouia one night with some friends to check it out. We heard a class room door slam open and partially close. When we went to look the door was still open. Then right after the school alarm went off. We walked out the school and as soon as we got onto the street the police was there. As far as the little girl goes, we didn't see her.

i have seen the man with the striped shirt lots of times. always crossing the street, always with a bad dog. nothing creepy about it... because i lived in san diego and port hueneme and would come back to fontana to see family. never really thought about it, but just once i realized that every single time i come down foothill at night past cherry and citrus i would always ALWAYS see him crossing. interesting...

The Mary B. Lewis one is all BS...I live right behind the school and went there from K to 6th grade and nothing like that has never happened...No one died there or anything...

I went to Mary Lewis School in the 1950's we lived on Frankfort Ave, Behind the school, only about 5 houses from the back fence.

I too never heard anything about any haunting, this was 50 years ago, you can't tell what might have happened since.

The only story I ever heard was Mary B Lewis was a student run over by a school bus, so the school was named after her. I don't recall if this was at the school or at another school. If I recall correctly at that time MBL was a part of the defunct Bloomington Unified School District, which apparently merged with Colton Schools.

Things were so very different there long ago, there is little to compare the school now and then. I also attended Bloomington Jr. High School in a building which is no longer there. Obviously there have been many many people who went through the halls of Mary B Lewis School since then... So who knows. My feelings on ghosts are you have to see one to believe it, if you haven't seen one you will not likely believe.

A women who grew up in the neighborhood, before many of these houses were built (Frankfort to Evergreen), shared that Mary B Lewis was hit right infront of the school. I don;t know if the school was re-named or what, Unfortunately, that woman's memory isn't as good as it used to be,

The story about Mary b. Lewis... The girl they named the school after wasn't kill in front of the school she was actually hit several blocks away near valley...the only girl that was hit happened when I attended school there in the early 90's and she lived only her legs were run over by a bus. Her name was thelma and I remember seeing her in Jr.high with the scars on her legs.

That was a different girl. I went to school there when that happened. Her name was Thelma.
