The Ghosts of Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is the City of Friendly Ghosts--come hear their stories!  From the Chumash to those who have left this realm recently, the friendly ghosts of Santa Barbara enjoy coming back for a sentimental holiday journey back home. Professor Julie Ann Brown began collecting ghost stories while attending USC and working on the Queen Mary as a tour guide.  She has been sharing her love of ghosts with the community since 2017 when she founded Santa Barbara Ghost Tours. 

 

When Professor Brown is not volunteering as a docent or usher at Old Mission Santa Barbara, she teaches nine classes as a tenured professor and Department Chair of Business Administration at Santa Barbara City College.
