Point Loma Nazarene University has called the west facing property in Point Loma home since 1973, but its history dates back to long before that.
In the early 1900s, Point Loma was populated by a group that encouraged tolerance of religions, science, philosophy and art. Their leader was Madame Katherine Tingley.
Tingley's house still stands today and is known as Cabrillo Hall. It's currently the home of the University's Communication Studies department.
Long rumored to be haunted, Cabrillo Hall piqued the curiosity of author and alumni David Schmidt, who graduated in 2002. Schmidt said he started hearing spooky stories about Cabrillo Hall during his first week on campus.
"Many people had firsthand accounts of strange things that they had seen, heard or felt and couldn`t explain," Schmidt said.
Schmidt dug into the history of Cabrillo Hall and Madame Tingley resulting in his book, "Holy Ghosts: True Tales from a Haunted Christian College."
Maritza Skandunas from San Diego Ghost Hunters leads tours at the Whaley House in Old Town. She jumped at the chance to meet Madame Tingley when Schmidt asked her to tag along for his interview with FOX 5. (Watch the video above to see their encounter with Madame Tingley.)
