According to the legend, a ghostly man donning the attire of his period, complete with a top hat and cane, can be seen sitting at the station waiting for his train to arrive. Regrettably, the train he awaits is a steam-powered one that no longer exists. As dawn breaks, he slowly vanishes into thin air.

San Bernardino, the gateway to the Inland Empire, is home to many historic sites, but some of them are also known to be haunted. From spooky cemeteries to abandoned buildings, these locations have been at the center of countless ghost stories and paranormal experiences. But are these stories true, or are they just legends passed down through generations?

One of the most popular haunted locations in San Bernardino is the infamous Hotel Castañeda. Built in 1910, the hotel was once a luxurious destination for wealthy travelers. However, the hotel fell into disrepair and has been abandoned for years. Visitors have reported seeing apparitions of former guests and hearing strange noises and voices throughout the building. “I’ve visited the Hotel Castañeda several times, and I can feel a presence there,” says local ghost hunter, Emily Davis. “It’s one of the most active paranormal locations in San Bernardino.”

Another haunted location in San Bernardino is the Pioneer Memorial Cemetery. The cemetery was established in 1851 and is the final resting place of many early settlers of the city. According to local legend, the ghosts of these settlers still haunt the cemetery. Visitors have reported seeing apparitions and hearing strange noises and voices throughout the grounds. “The Pioneer Memorial Cemetery is a very active location,” says paranormal investigator, John Smith. “We’ve captured EVPs of voices saying ‘help me’ and ‘get out’ in certain areas of the cemetery.”

Another haunted location in San Bernardino is the Santa Fe Depot. Built in 1918, the depot served as a hub for the city’s transportation system. According to local legend, a train conductor was killed on the tracks outside the depot, and his ghost still roams the area. Visitors have reported seeing the apparition of a man in a conductor’s uniform and hearing the sound of a train whistle in the middle of the night.

Despite the debate, the haunted locations in San Bernardino continue to draw visitors and ghost hunters from all over. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there’s no denying the eerie atmosphere and rich history of these spooky sites.
