Ghost Hunters at the Casino
Recently, ghost hunters combed the Casino to investigate the paranormal activity taking place in this historic locale. Numerous photographs showed spirit orbs while audio recordings detected faint voices in areas completely devoid of human activity. An on-site séance was held, but it was not carried through to the end because the participants simply felt too uneasy by the strange presence around them. If you get a change to talk to local Historian and Author “Chuck Liddell” he can tell you of a personal encounter experienced at this World-Famous locale.

Zane Grey Sighting
A local Avalon citizen recently encountered the spirit that is believed to be the ghost of Zane Grey, a local Catalina Island legend. The apparition was seen on the Via Casino walkway leading against the walkway and smoking a cigarette. When the local walked up to the apparition, it vanished into thin air, leaving behind only the distinct scent of cigarette smoke. Zane Grey is probably the most active of all the spirits on Catalina Island. To this very day visitors constantly reporting sightings of Mr. Grey who was a famous author know for his adventure novels.

Swirling Ghost
A jogger recently reported seeing a swirling vortex or fog or mist near the junction leading to the interior gate. The vortex appeared out of thin air, crossed the road, and then vanished without a trace. This repeating Swirling Vortex Ghost has been attributed, by some locals, to the usage of Ancient Native-American burial grounds for modern day development. Over the years a number of Native-American bones by the “Pimu” Tribe have been discovered during renovation or development. The entire City of Avalon sits on Pimu Indian burial grounds.

Restless Spirit of Natalie Wood
Probably the most famous of all the spirits on Catalina Island is that of the famous actress Natalie Wood. Some believe the death of Natalie Wood is an outdated case that has been close long ago but it most certainly is NOT. In 2011 the Los Angeles Country Sheriff’s department reopened the case of Natalie Wood. Since that time the case remains open and has re-interrogated Ms. Wood’s co-star Christopher Walken and have made attempt to speak with her husband at the time Robert Wagner. The death is now classified as “suspicious circumstances”.
