Preston Castle - Real Haunt in Ione CA
Also known as the Preston School of Industry, this majestic building was founded in 1894 as a reform school. It then became the Preston Youth Correctional Facility in 1999 before ceasing operations in 2011. The historic building is now open to the public for tours and is believed to be haunted by former wards and a housekeeper named Anna Corbin. Anna was bludgeoned to death at the castle in the 1950's. The location has been featured on TV's Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, as well as other programs.
