Berkeley Steam Ferry - Real Haunted Place
The Berkeley Steam Ferry was one of several ferries that operated for 60 years on the San Francisco Bay between the Oakland Pier and the San Francisco Ferry Building. It was built in 1898 by the Union Iron Works of San Francisco and is believed to be quite haunted. The ferry could carry 2,000 passengers at a time, and at one point, it was used in the rescue efforts to evacuate residents of San Francisco during the Great Fire of 1906. An explosion happened onboard just five years later, killing a man named John O. Norbom and injuring five others in the process. Norbom's spirit is known to haunt the ferry today and is said to lock the bathroom stalls.
