Description:
Large Building built in 1903. Once used as an old Citrus packing house in the early 1900`s. Now housing a Antique Mall since 1979 with 4 floors inside. The former Owners and Staff as well as the dealers experienced strange happenings. Two the stories are that 2 citrus plant workers died tragically in the mall. One story is that a worker had locked himself accidentally in the old freezer room in the basement and passed away. Another is unknown how but a worker died from machinery falling onto him in the back of the bottom floor. Dark shadowy figures have been seen in closing time. The cleaning crew has quit after hours when a woman cleaner screamed from the bottom floor claiming she saw a black figure watching her. Electrical appliances have sounded off with no batteries inside. Pictures have fallen feet away from where they were hung. Saucers and objects for sale have rolled or flung off onto the floors. A empty space has got the most attention where stairs use to be, cold spots and sensitive customers have felt a presence there. Curiously young children who know nothing of the mall refuse sometimes to enter the basement where the freezer accident occurred. King Richards is history all around and the staff claims that they feel no threat from the strange occurrences. Sometimes you just feel like they want to be noticed or known. Oddly enough the happenings really become more active around October through the holiday season. Its hard to separate the occurrences said one worker. The Antique items that are brought in by dealers some time hold a past with them as well. But for the feeling of King Richards you see, to know the difference. No harm from these ghost`s just a remembrance of Whittiers History.

I was at this location about 1 year ago. My experience was on the 2nd floor. I had gone to due some antique shopping with my sisters. I had gone up to the 2nd floor going towards the fenced off part of the floor, when I suddently felt the room swirl. I almost fainted. I could not go any further. I felt depressed and wanted to leave, in which I did.

They had a bit of a fire in the basement area last year, where all the cool junk and larger pieces were kept. They have cleared it out and cleaned it up. It's not the same....
