Whether Colma is haunted or not largely depends on whether you believe that cemeteries can be haunted. Personally, I don't so I don't think Colma is haunted. As I stated earlier, Colma and Cripple Creek came into being for two entirely different reasons so comparing them is like comparing apples to oranges.

Hmmm, I love close by here and may check it out. I've never really heard anyone talk about it but I'm guessing there could very well be some type of energy there. Since I do live so close I may as well stop by sometime.

Well to stay on topic, I've never been to either place and doubt either would be haunted.

:P

Aaahhh! What the hell is that thing?

I live about a 20 minute drive from San Francisco and have never even heard of this town. Guess it is the go to place for all of the people no more of the popular area.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

I can confirm, that the city along with part of daly city right next to it is filled with several large grave sites. i've driven through the area several times late at night when i worked as a repossession agent but never noticed anything odd, never felt too wierded out there. its actually very calm and suburbish.

Listen to the album Colma by Buckethead. It's haunting, surreal, detached, and lonely.

I can surmise that these are the feelings one must get when they actually visit Colma, CA. I can only imagine...

I think the song does good to represent the city of Colma

Coloma? Good for meteorites lately. I have hunted, camped in  and hiked the woods and mountains all around Coloma. Nothing spooky.

I'll make a guess as to why it hasn't been on any of the paranormal hunting tv shows.  this is purely speculation mind you.  Does anyone else realize that NONE of the ghost hunt shows has investigations primarily in cemeteries?  I would venture to guess for one big reason.  doing outside production is a pain in the ****.  While some shows might to a partial stint outside, every single one primarily does the show indoors.  I would chalk that up to a couple things.  Too much outside stuf to deal with when it comes to production.  sounds, animals, wind, the elements, etc.  Secondly, they overall are boring.  See a tombstone, seen them all kind of thing.  and in line with that, while most of us think a cemetery is creepy to walk around in particularly at night, for a tv crew, it doesn't have the same effect as a closed in, crumbling, rotting subdivided building with spooky nooks and crannies, furniture that's old and disintegrating, staircases that seem alive, and also places that hide and create shadows, echos, creeks and bumps.  Building alone have singular history with regards to the times and events that occured in a static location, peoples of all walks entered and left, sometimes met their deaths, tragedies and so forth become attached to its legend and lore.  Cemeteries are filled with all kinds of people but its a final resting place....not a place where life occured both hardships and good things.  again, just a theory, but I think building like prisons, asylums, hospitals, castles and the like will always serve for better tv and have more to offer for production values.  what do you guys think....I'm just trying to give a theory on the OP's question of why not here?

I lived in Colma and my house was haunted. My mom sold the house to a Jewish Synagog who tore the house down on Annie St. around 1964 and it is still standing. I have lots of stories about that house. I've always wondered if they ever found any dead bodies or spirits? My sister and I also had a weird experience with a gargoyle that I posted I another forum on here.

I used to spend a lot of time in Colma just cruising around with my Polaroid camera :) I live in Oregon now and there's just not that kind of extravagant, interesting cemeteries near me. I figure that there's never been that kind of money or culture around here. Maybe closer to the cities. I haven't had the opportunity to check that out yet. If you google earth Colma, the city is mostly grey.

There's also a pet cemetery there. This might be helpful if you're a stripper searching for a brilliant stage name.

I'm new to this forum so I don't know how to control who I'm replying to and this may be a very old thread. I found this web site yesterday googling Colma cemeteries. I just changed my picture, do you like it? It's a Cain Corso. Looks like a devil dog. Watch Harold and Maude. the full movie is on youtube. It was filmed all over the bay area and San Francisco. It's a cult classic for sure with a great soundtrack if you like Cat Stevens. Cemetery scenes filmed in Colma. Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort, 1971.

I was born and raised and currently live in San Francisco and I never really considered that Colma might be haunted. It does have a bunch of cemetaries everywhere, and many relatives are buried there, but it never really gave me the creeps as much as The Presidio cemetary does. I always go to Colma for the malls and restaurants.

One good place in SF that is most likely haunted (or was, I guess. It's been torn down and a condo was built in its place) is the Public Health Service Hospital in the Presidio. Try googling that.
