The Ghosts of Albuquerque, New Mexico
The Albuquerque Press Club – Originally built in 1903 as a family residence named the Whittlesey House, this nightclub came to be after it passed through many hands over the years. Staff and frequent patrons have seen the apparition of a woman in a black shawl so many times, they’ve nicknamed her “Mrs. M.” Other reports include hearing mysterious high heels click across the floor and the old piano playing all by itself. Despite the many reports, no one really knows the origin of the hauntings or why the ghosts haunt this particular club.
Carrie Tingly Children’s Hospital – Several visitors and even staff members of this children’s hospital have come forward claiming to have seen and heard strange things including the disembodied voices of children, sobbing, and even faint heartbeats. Supposedly there’s also been several rooms in vacant sections of the hospital that appear to be glowing and some people have even reported being unable to pass through doors and hallways by an invisible force.
Haunted Hill – Located just at the end of Menual Blvd. in the foothills of New Mexico, visitors can allegedly hear screaming and the sound of bodies being dragged (gruesome!). Albuquerque folklore states that an old man who used to live in the caves at the top of the hills would bring prostitutes there and eventually murder them.
Maria Teresa Restaurant – This old hacienda has the unique distinction of being one of New Mexico’s most haunted buildings. Dating back to 1783, at least three different ghosts have reportedly been seen wandering throughout the building and employees claim to have felt pressure and the sensation of being touched when no one is around. Other bizarre occurrences include flatware and tables showing up in strange places, mysteriously moving on their own and faint apparitions appearing in mirrors.
The Job Corps Center - Before this center was part of the Job Corps initiative, it was home to an orphanage and a boy’s school that was established in 1918 by the Sisters of St. Francis. The orphanage and school remained open until 1971, when the Department of Labor claimed it. City records actually show that one particular sister supposedly went insane and murdered a handful of boys at the orphanage. When the school was installing a swimming pool over an unused well in the back, the bodies of several children were found.
Today, it is believed the center is haunted by those children murdered and that if you listen hard enough, you can hear the cries of dying children. One particular note of interest is that the Job Corps handbook specifically prohibits the use of Ouija boards on campus. Perhaps to avoid unknowingly disturbing the ghosts of the murdered children?
