Blue Ball Park

As the legend goes, the hill located at Anna Jean Cummings Park (known as Blue Ball Park) is said to be haunted by a young couple who overdosed and died there in the 1970s. Several people have claimed to see the ghostly couple standing on the hill dressed in hippie attire at night. Others claim to have seen their silhouettes sitting beneath a tree holding hands at sunset.

Soquel haunted Daubenbiss ghost

The Daubenbiss House

Many probably wonder what the story is behind the big, old Victorian on the hill overlooking the Soquel Village, so I’m here to tell you … The Georgian style home was built in 1867 and bought by California pioneer, John Daubenbiss who built and ran a sawmill, and the first flour mill in California. He and his wife Sarah moved into the home shortly after it was built and resided there until their deaths.

The Daubenbiss House

The couple had 11 children, and 5 of them unfortunately didn’t survive to adulthood. The Daubenbiss’ suffered the loss of their first child, 14-year-old John F. Daunbenbiss in 1862; -his cause of death is unknown. They lost an infant in 1869, and Joseph Daubenbiss (18 years), in 1873. That same year, they lost another son, 17-year-old James B. Daubenbiss who tragically drowned in the bay. I have yet to uncover who their 5th child was that left this earth much too soon.


The Daubenbiss house was used for parties, receptions, and even funerals. It was much lived and died in. John’s wife Sarah passed away in their house in 1891, at 62 years of age. Five years later, John Daubenbiss struck ill and also died in the home on February 10, 1896, at the age of 79. He was buried next to his wife and children at their family plot in the Soquel Cemetery down the road, which he had founded years before.

The house was then sold and bought, and sold, and bought again; and during that time, ghost stories began to arise. A former owner stated that she personally never saw a ghost there, but she definitely could feel a presence. That presence is believed to be the ghost of John Daubenbiss, who has been seen standing on the front upper balcony of his beloved home, still overlooking the town that he holds so dear.


Additional Information:

- Spirit orbs have been sighted around the outside of the Daubenbiss House.

- Disembodied voices and unexplainable sounds have been heard.

Soquel High School

Soquel High located on Old San Jose Road in Soquel, CA was established in 1962. Built on empty farmland, presumably owned by the Daubenbiss family, ghosts and residual energy are believed to haunt the property.


A couple Soquel High janitors both have encountered unexplained events while working at the school,  in the day, and also late into the night. 


On one occasion, a current janitor walked into the gymnasium in the middle of the night, when the bleachers on either side of him began to violently shake and rattle without reason. It scared him so badly, he refuses to go in the gym at night again.

Another janitor claims to hear eerie sounds of laughter and talking from inside classrooms, while walking down the corridors at night. Whenever he checks the rooms they are always quiet and empty.  

(- Yet just seconds before they would sound full, as if a class were in session.) 


This janitor became so intrigued and interested in the paranormal activity taking place at the school, he began recording audio while at work to see if he could catch a disembodied voice; in which he did. In the beginning of 2018, the janitor recorded the voice of a young girl saying, “You’re safe.” It was loud and clear, almost sounding as if someone spoke directly into his recorder. The janitor shared the EVP with several individuals who all believe it really is the spirit of a little girl reaching out.
