Ghost Hunt: Students find ghosts and other strange stuff.
By Richard Senate


Haunted  Caliornia

The students at the Ventura College Community Service class in “Ghosts and Haunted Houses” got a chance to try out there new ghost hunting skills at the 1847 historic Olivas Adobe. Long rumored haunted numerous strange and amazing thing have happened at the old house, now a museum located at 4200 Olivas Park Drive, Ventura. Olivas Adobe Historical Park.



They toured the dark rooms and several felt an impression of a ghost, an odd smell, or a place where things seemed colder than the rest of the house. Their findings matched what others had discovered over the years. It was when an attempt at “Psychic Archaeology” was tried that things really took off. Dowsing rods were employed to detect the location of the legendary tunnel that linked the house to the near-by Santa Clara River. The students, almost everyone novices to dowsing, lined up and slowly walked forward. The rods crossed almost as one. A row was marked and a second attempt made, the rods crossed at another location the outlines seemed to indicate some sort of underground anomaly. Was this the location of the tunnel? The students were pumped at their success they continued on. They didn’t get far before they found the location of an underground room. They marked it out in the East Lawn of the adobe. There is a rumor of a treasure vault at the site so perhaps the students had located this feature. Next, using the dowsing rods they communicated with a ghostly woman who said she died at the Olivas Adobe long ago. She said the treasure vault was empty.



The students were pleased that they were successful at their first try. But, psychic research is much more than just doing dowsing. I next turned to the history of the adobe and from my files. In digging for post holes in the location of the hidden vault a discovery was made. This was the location of the large outhouse for the Olivas Adobe!
They had found an “underground room all right” but it wasn’t a treasure vault –at least any treasure most people would want to find. They had succeeded in their dowsing, only failing in their interpretation.

The expedition also included a trip to downtown Ventura to attempt to communicate with the ghostly bandit that is linked to the old jail known as “El Caballo.” The attempt was a success in that a communication was set up but the ghost, presence or what ever it was wasn’t a bandit. She said that she had passed away here. Her story was a sad one and the account was confirmed by research. The small brick building was used for storage after it was abandoned by the city. A lady went into the cool storeroom seeking keroscene for a lamp. Some how it spilled and when she went to light the lamp her dress caught on fire and she was badly burned. Accidents like there were common in a time when long garments were popular with women. The group asked if there was anything they could do for the unfortunate woman. She said light a candle in the old mission.



Some of the students took this as a quest and went the tour was over they dutifully went to the mission gift shop, bought a candle, and placed it in the church before the Virgin. They said a prayer as one member took pictures. When they were done a strange misty form, not unlike that of a woman was seen next to them. Had the phantom woman followed them over to the old church just to make sure they fulfilled their promise? Will this ritual send the ghost lady on from Valdez Alley to that place were all spirits go in their time? Who knows? The class was a success and the field trips gave the students chills and thrills as well as a chance to practice their new skills as ghost hunters. A new class is planned for the Fall months through Ventura College Community Service.

Richard Senate’s 13 Rules of Good Ghost Hunting

Hunting Real Ghosts!

1. Let People know where you are going so if there is a mishap they can inform the authorities of where you went and with whom. Good advise for hikers too. Try to go in a group if possible.

2. Get permission to visit the sites! Never trespass as this can lead to all sorts of problems. Because of this some of the better places will be closed to you but, if you do not have permission you will not be able to publish your findings and evidence.

3. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Dress in layers as places can be cold or hot. Wear a hat when in the sun. Hiking shoes are best in an outdoor setting, rubber soled walking shoes best for indoor work.
Always take water with you and, if possible, a cell phone to call for help.

4. Take ways to record your findings and evidence. Cameras, Tape Recorders, Videos etc…are good for this. If you are using a film camera use high speed film only--At least 1,000 ASA. Black and White seems to work best. If you have a tape recorder, use new music quality tape. ALSO: Carry extra batteries as ghosts can drain energy from batteries.

5. If possible, research the history of the site and who lived there or what action happened there. This will help you in many ways. The more you know, the better your investigation will be. Remember, you are there to collect data.

6. Carry a flashlight (torch) with you to illuminate dark places within a site or to find your way back if you are stranded after dark. The flashlight is your friend and it can be the best tool you have in your kit.

7. Always carry with you a pad of paper, clip board, pencils and pens. These can help you record interviews and anything you experience. Try to draw a picture of the site, a floor plan of the place or map. You can use this to draw a picture of what ever you encounter at the site--Drawing and sketching are skills all ghost hunters ( and archaeologists) need to develop.

8. Always be respectful in doing investigations. Yes, have fun and don’t be too serious, but, respect the ghosts and your chances are better that you will encounter an apparition or supernatural sound. Don’t insult the ghosts or mock them. Remember, ghosts are people who just happen to be dead.

9. Don’t drink alcoholic spirits, take drugs or smoke pot. Anything that might impair your senses are strictly forbidden. If you do these things it will cast doubt on your findings. Skeptics will denounce anything you collect--even the best evidence you have. We must be professional!

10. Don’t harm or vandalize a site. Be like a ghost so that no one will know you were even there. Our goal is to collect data to prove the existence of ghosts not damage property. If possible, leave it better than when you came.

11. If possible try to re-enact an event that happened at the site. If it was a Civil War battlefield, dress as a Civil War soldier. If the haunting was linked to a poker game, play poker. This is called re-stimulation and it can enhance your chances of getting supernatural phenomena.

12. Music can be important, as well, to stimulate events but, it must be real music, not taped. So a flute, guitar, etc.. can be helpful. Play songs that are linked to the era of the ghost. This is good for collecting spirit voices (EVP) as well.

13. Lastly, write up a report on all you find. Try to publish your findings as well in a local publication or magazine. FATE Magazine is good for this. If you don’t write the report and submit it, all you have done is spin your wheels. Ghost hunting is a science not a lark. Good Luck and Good Hunting!

Ghost Hunt - going to a place were there have been no sightings of ghosts and trying to catch some on film (video and photos), sounds, eyewitness, etc. And of course your local haunted graveyards are often the number one place to start.
