Luana’s Canyon

This canyon in Arizona was once desolate and eerie. Now, it's full of slum housing and refuse, a refuge for transients with nowhere else to stay. To make matters worse, the ghosts of frontier tragedy linger in these walls. No wonder it's also called Slaughterhouse Canyon.

Museum employees have reported some unusual goings-on between the lovingly crafted houses. When you build a monument to colonial rule, you should always expect ghosts.

Summerwind Mansion

The Hollywood Sign

It’s a symbol of the glamor of show business and the allure of being a movie star. But just like the city that it overlooks, this sign has been the site of tragic loss. A young starlet jumped to her death from the "H,” and rumor has it she's still there...repeating her heartbroken final moments forever.
