Here's Jenny's guest blog:
You can find haunted places all across America. Some of the best come from the older sites, places where you feel history and decay, some of them come from historic tragedies or tragic lives, and others come with a sprinkle of stardust. Like any other city, Los Angeles has its fair share of haunted houses and locations.
As someone who grew up on black and white horror movies, you might imagine that moving to LA was a dream come true. The most exciting thing of all, was to see the lots and locations where Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi strut their stuff. This meant the first place I went to was Karloff’s Rose Garden on Bowmont Drive.
The most iconic of Frankenstein’s monster actors, as well as playing Frankenstein himself, and the Mummy, Karloff was also a keen gardener. His rose garden was so beautiful several friends asked to have their ashes scattered there. He duly obliged and created one of the most peaceful yet haunted places in the city. This is not the only haunted place in LA though it is my personal favorite. Also check out the Linda Vista Hotel, the Silent Movie Theater, the Wax Museum and many other the most haunted places in Los Angeles.
