Porterville Established in 1861
From Porterville Recorder article, Oct 31, 2012, 
      "Lore abounds of ghosts in Porterville, by Emily Shapiro" 
Through the years, stories have abounded of haunted places and beings in town from Main Street to Scranton, to Terra Bella and beyond. Buildings, areas and even cemeteries have been rumored to contain sights and sounds of an otherworldly persuasion, but what about other places? Main Street holds a number of local stories that many may not know about.“At Edwards Gallery a murder took place upstairs in the 1920s. [In the] haunted alley behind City Hall at a mechanic’s shop there was an explosion and two gentleman were killed. In the basement of City Hall employees hear things and see things,” said Huerta, who added that other structures including the fire department were also haunted.According to Huerta, the Porterville Fire Department, which was built in the 1930s has also had reports of hauntings as members of the department have reported being held down in their bunk beds and radios working even though they weren’t plugged in. The haunted boxing ring/dance hall located above Earth Angel is also an area of activity.“People have seen apparitions, seeing things moving and hearing talking,” stated Huerta.Finally, there is the story of the two men who haunt downtown Main Street. As the story goes, these two men fought to the death over a slight that the other had done.Huerta explains that one night one of the men was drunk and shot a woman in her buttocks.After the man went to jail and came out the second man kept harping on him. The two men then fought in an unnamed downtown business.Other reported sightings include a woman in white in a dentist’s office and a murder which occurred in a clothing store.
