Many people who have visited the historic Carson Mansion in Eureka, Ca.,also now known as
The Ingomar Club, have always believed they saw a ghost in one of the towers.
The story starts way back in 1849 when William Carson left New Brunswick Canada, to strike it rich during the California Gold Rush.
He packed up some horses and headed up the Trinity River. As with most of the exhibitions, his search was unsuccessful.
By 1854, Mr. Carson was running the most successful lumber mills in the country. He is known to have always been fair to his workers and to everyone around him.
In 1864, he married Sarah Wilson in San Francisco. Sarah was also from New Brunswick Canada and had 4 children. Sarah was one of the most modest people in her circle of friends. She much rather have lived in the small house than in the mansion.
From time to time, she would sit in her rocking chair and take in the views across Humboldt Bay.
Every full moon,, tourists and passersby would say her rocking chair never stopped rocking...
