Seeking out spirits at Woodland Opera House

1 post in this topic

On Friday October 19, News10 followed along with the paranormal investigation team at California Haunts to seek out evidence of the afterlife at the Woodland Opera House.

The Opera House, wedged between Main St. and Dead Cat Alley, was rebuilt after a massive fire destroyed the original structure, as well much of what is now Historic Woodland in July 1892.

William Porter, a volunteer firefighter in woodland was one of the many who responded to the massive blaze. Unfortunately for Porter, he was dowsing the flames at the original Woodland Opera House when the building crumbled on top of him, killing him in the process.
