Gene Tour Guide

Gene Fountain has been surrounded by the paranormal his entire life. His passion for history, old buildings, and tales of the supernatural are brought to life with his personality and humor. Gene is a techy geek and will be found obsessively surfing the internet researching history, watching horror movies, or goofing off with his granddaughter. He lived in a very active paranormal home. Ask him about “Cindy”.

Stephanie Manager

Stephanie is an avid genealogy enthusiast. She has a great passion for history, old trinkets, knick-knacks, and art. You’ll find her watching horror movies with Gene, scouring through hundreds of images and organizing them on Ancestry.com if she’s not continuing her education in the art of crocheting. Her granddaughter is her greatest joy…well, besides reality TV, especially Big Brother.

About Haunted Hangtown Ghost Tours

Haunted Hangtown Ghost Tours started with our love for history and hauntings. We formed a paranormal investigation group to investigate the hauntings of the California gold country. Our group, Homegrown Paranormal, is a rag-tag group of paranormal explorers based out of Pollock Pines, a hop, skip, and jump away from the historic Gold Country. Our group has years of personal, homegrown experience with the paranormal. With our love of history and curiosity of the paranormal we want to bring the spirits of the past to life.

That’s when the idea for Haunted Hangtown Ghost Tours was born. Placerville is our favorite historic, haunted town and what better place to share our passion for the paranormal…HAUNTED HANGTOWN. Our ghost walks will give you a vivid history of haunted, historic Placerville a.k.a “old Hangtown”. We will share with you, through extensive research, the history as well as the haunted myths, lore, and legends. Oh, but our ghost hunts?

We will engage with our visitors in a real paranormal investigation using some of the latest equipment. What are we looking for? With your help, we will search for the fantastic, not the fantasy.

You see, the paranormal evidence that we will gather has a history. The spirits that live throughout the Gold Country, the Mother Lode and beyond have a grand history. We want to hear and tell the stories of days long gone by and learn of the people who lived them. Those people have names. They have stories. Our mission is to seek, not only paranormal evidence, but to find the stories and document them.

We know that ghosts, haunts and spirits exist. In short, WE BELIEVE. Our goal is to have an amazing experience and hopefully, in the end…make YOU BELIEVE!!! Wait! That doesn’t make us turn a blind eye to reality. We seek the truth. We seek answers. We hear the stories that are told, we seek the spirits that are seen, but we want the real story. We want to validate that the spirits are real. Skeptic first…orb or camera glare? Apparition or cold breath? What we find during an investigation will be put through intense analysis and scrutiny but, hopefully, on the other end we will be able to share fantastic findings, learn even more history of the spirits, the locations, and share amazing moments.
