The Howe-Waffle Mansion has a long history of unexplained activity that has been witnessed and reported by both museum volunteers and visitors alike. Sounds of children’s foot steps on the second floor and attic, disembodied voices, shadow people in the downstairs parlor, and the sensation of being touched are just a few instances to have been reported in the past few months. The house’s growing reputation caught the eye of Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. In March of 2013 they filmed an episode, which featured the historic mansion, and it’s ghostly happenings.
During your Investigation you will explore next to Chad inside the Howe-Waffle Mansion. You'll move through every room and attempt to communicate and connect with the spirits that reside within. Using himself and different techniques of spirit communication, Chad will lead you through an all night journey into the paranormal. You'll investigate as a team, but you’ll also have an opportunity to investigate in a manor seldom offered and often overlooked. You will "Face Your Fears" in isolation.
Each Investigator is encouraged to bring their own ghost hunting equipment, most important, they are encouraged to bring themselves... The human element is vital to any investigation. After winding down you'll tuck yourself in to sleep with the spirits inside the mansion. At daylight we’ll rise and shine to a Belgium waffle breakfast served in the dining room with Chad and your fellow surviving investigators. Bring your sleeping bags and teddy bears. It's going to be a long night.
Chad has been a paranormal investigator for over 8 years. He has learned and worked along side some of the most well known paranormal investigators and researchers in the field. He has investigated some of the most haunted and dangerous locations in the Country and abroad.
Haunted Orange County is proud to welcome Brandon Alvis of APRA (American Paranormal Research Association) who will be running all of our audio visual feeds and recording units.

Built in 1889, The Howe-Waffle Mansion in downtown Santa Ana first served as the original home of two early prominent Orange County physicians. Dr. Willella and her husband Dr. Alvin Howe. Throughout its 125 year old history, the house has served not only as a private residence but also as a hospital & clinic where hundreds of patience were seen, treated, cared for.
Dr. Willella is said to have delivered over 1,0000 babies in her lifetime, many of them in the home. As with any hospital the house has seen its share of untimely death, sorrow and tragedy. Patients and expectant mothers where housed not only in the second story bedrooms and large attic but in the detached carriage barn as well.
The house also has a long reported history of unexplained activity that has been witnessed and reported by both museum volunteers and visitors alike. Sounds of children’s foot steps on the second floor and attic, disembodied voices, shadow people in the downstairs parlor, and the sensation of being touched are just a few instances to have been reported in the past few months.
