LATEST NEWS

"Photographer Owens distinguishes fact from fiction in this stimulating, heavily illustrated account of the supposed hauntings of eight historic Southern California hotels....Gorgeous photo stagings recreate the romantic and heady days of each lodging while adding dashes of visual humor, subtle sensuality, and haunting atmosphere. Lavishly illustrated and handsomely produced, the book’s entertaining and informative narrative dwells on the documented facts while dispelling most of the colorful myths."  -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY STARRED REVIEW  
Haunted by History Vol. 1 is now available on Amazon.com,  The Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum in Burbank, Book Soup in Los Angeles, Vroman's Books in Pasadena, the Valley Relics Museum in Chatsworth, Heaven's Gallery in Ventura, the Julian Gold Rush Hotel in Julian and the Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula.

PAST EVENTS

Ghost Hunt Aztec Hotel Craig Owens

Last Cinco de Mayo, a bunch of lucky folks had the a rare opportunity to see and ghost hunt inside of the (haunted) Aztec Hotel in Monrovia, CA. As the hotel's historian, I was happy to share the real history and to discuss the ghost legends. Apparently, a few folks claimed to have encountered the hotel's ghosts during the investigation. A special thanks to the owners, bar staff, Mystic Museum and Ghost Watch Paranormal for making this event a unique event!

Recorded live at the Mystic Museum last January. It is less of a sales pitch for my book HAUNTED BY HISTORY and more of an honest fireside chat about haunted Southern California. Thanks LA Meekly for doing this. Please follow them. They are great! If you need hecklers, they are available!
