Originally the El Dorado Hotel, the Cary House has a storied history as a mainstay in this historic mining town.  Dignitaries, famous figures, and the pioneers of Placerville, ol’ Hangtown have stayed here…some of the many guests, former employers, and old gamblers and miners still…reside and have no intention of ever leaving.  Haunted Hangtown Ghost Tours is going to hunt those spirits down and attempt to communicate with them.

Of course, we can’t guarantee that spirits will communicate, but as part of a paranormal investigative team you understand the spirits don’t always come to play.  We will video the entire evening to analyze after the event and we will share the highlights of what we capture…The Cary House activity has not yet disappointed.
