Vanderlip Mansion - Real Rancho Palos Verdes Haunt
This mansion is situated inside a private, gated community located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and is rumored to be haunted. Stories say that the former owner, Mr. Vanderlip's daughter, who committed suicide after being told she could not marry her African American lover, built an insane asylum and locked his daughter inside. He then killed her, her lover and their baby. Another story tells of a wife, Narcissa, who murdered and chopped up her family, burying them inside the walls of the mansion. She then killed her two dogs and hanged herself in the living room from one of the beams. In this story, it is said glowing ghost dogs haunt the yard and the ghostly woman and her family linger inside the mansion.
