In this small town there is a historical place called Kerney Mansion. Built around 100 years ago Mr. Kerneys mansion is surrounded by trees. Railroad tracks near this mansion are definitely haunted. Seen by many eye witnesses, if you cross over these railroad tracks at night you will definitely see the Kerney witch who lives near by wearing all white pleading for the cars to stop. Legend has it that she will follow your car or you as you pass her, and if you look into her eyes, you`ll die.

Kearney park/mansion was located right behind my house and yes it might be a creepy place at night but the street certainly is not haunted. Although it is said that the house is haunted by what who knows, I have taken a tour which is available to the public with a small fee and the house is just like any other old Victorian. The only story that is known about the house and the grounds are that Mr Kearney bought and built the house and lined what is known as Kearney blvd with palm trees so that his new bride wouldn't get sunburned on the ride to her new home but the marriage never took place cause Mr Kearney died in the SF earthquick back in the early 1900's.

Just to correct some info posted, Kearney did not line the Blvd with palm trees for his new "wife", as he remained a bachelor his entire life. He also did not pass away in the SF earthquake. He died aboard the ship Caronia while passing over the Atlantic enroute to England in 1906. (heart attack at 64 years of age). Mansion is not haunted :(

"Legend has it that she will follow your car or you as you pass her, and if you look into her eyes, you`ll die."

How can there be any verifiable witnesses to this so called legend if you look into her eyes, you die?  I've seen this "legend" posted on other websites and it seems the poster did the same.

I've heard stories about the place and have been trying to get in for years, but they aren't very friendly to anyone who is looking for ghosts.

I had personal experiences on the mansion's grounds which is called Kearney Park back in the 80's.  At first I thought "there is nothing out there."  This was before I knew about the stories that the place was haunted. 

I was maybe 25 years old at the time. A few friends and myself went to Kearney Park at night and we had dates.  We all got out of our cars and a couple of people from our group had bad feelings, they said it felt creepy there.  I had to use the restroom and started walking away from my friends.  Then I heard some one say "Help me.", "Help me."  But it didn't sound like some one who was in distress.  I stopped when my buddy yelled at me saying who was out there with me.  I looked back at my friend then quickly turned and looked in the opposite direction.  This is when I saw what looked like what I thought was a man until he started walking on all fours toward me.  The walk it had was weird.  I froze, literally, and to this day I don't know how I unfroze. This is one of the most frightening things I had ever seen and one experience I had never felt before my entire life. 

I never said anything to anyone about this.  The people I was with that night never discussed it, ever.  Until recently.  I am now 42 years old and I live about 5 miles from Kearney Mansion

SCARY AS hell! and ive also been driving down just the road going about 15 miles an hour with the lights off and seen her standing on the side of the road...in a white gown. another time i drove down there we were doin like 20 mph n passed a house and the dog was sittin at the end of the drive way just staring straight, so i stopped and reversed to check it out and he wouldnt even look at the car...just dead straight. so we bounced! i want to go all the way up to the mansion door.

It's really TRUE!!!Dont look into her eyes; the moment you do, that's it for you. I've gone to kearney park plenty of times; BUT there was this one day in 2003 before i graduated high school. There was 6 of us at the park drinking haveing a (soulcall) good time. Until everyone wanted to go there own way. Finaly we meet up back to our van. the moment we meet again there was stories already crazy things were happening. So we decide to leave. As we leave were passing the mansion.No bull but we heard some one yelling from the mansion. So We're driving we end up seeing a cop entering the gate at the other end. I tell my friend to speed up. Next thing the lights go on and the siren. Cop does his thing checking inur. to car. etc. as soon as he lets us go he tells us. "what are you guys doing in the park? Did you know theres been killings, going on and other wierd mysterous things. I want you guys to get the hell out of here befor IT'S TOO LATE!!" My friends and i were shiting bricks. But that didnt stop us from going. I went again I was sitting on the swings, it was all quite next thing you hear lil kids laughters, next to the restrooms I heard grown up talk All this happend late at night. I go again this time with the guy I cheated my husband with, it's that guy and a friend of his and my self we took a stroll down the park the moment we drove in our hair to our necks stand up, I see someone running really fast from one end of the lawn to the other someone really tall with a weird figure. We tell our selfs "LET'S GO!!!!!!" WE leave but that guy i was talking too and my self took his friend home. We try to go back after we took him home. Well apparently I was driving back towards kerney but I was driving on Blythe st. towards kearney park It was really foggy 0 visibility fog. out in the cuts. For some weird reason I happend of not seeing the stop sign I run the stop sign on Belmont & Blythe. The car coming from Belmont strucks me on the driver side, my car flipps twice, and I landed In someone's front lawn. I wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I survived the accident; when paramedics get there they ask me if it was ok for them to call abc30 news. It was a miracle I'm alive with fractures in my Pelvis, hip, rightleg cuz it got stunk between brake and gas peddle. Minor Rib fractures. I really thank the man up above for still having me here. When I took pic. of my car @ the towing place my windshield glass was cracked in a figure of a lady. You can see it very clear. Sorry tried to post pic. Will try again so you can see pic. I'll Keep Posted.

Yea It's me again; The one who was in an accident. If you go to my myspace you'll see the pix of my car. It's funny cuz that lady that I see, she looks exactly like the one on my shatterd windshield. I feel as if she had me crash to get me from going back.

for my understanding that he built the house with his own hands. I believe that there's no cemetery. But he did barey his childrens; and childrens, childrens.

where did he burey his family at "on the property or at a cementary" as for the saying that the property was a cementary before it was a park, no that is not true cause it was owned by a millionair who used it as his home.

the cementary was behind the property if you look at the map u will see one rectangle area that no one will do or build on it. i do believe that is where the cementary was at one time or is that the family is buried in that spot.

What eyes are you people talking about. If you look into the eyes you die. What eyes are these? I never heard of that. So there is a cemetary located next to the mansion. But my sister told me a true story and this took place in the summer of 1989 and she told me it was aroun 10 at night when her and her so called boyfriend were talking and listening to the radio in the kearney park when all of the suddent there were sounds of heavy chains whipping their truck and jumping up and down in their truck bed. They got so scared they didn't talk but when they turned to look back there were no figures but the action was going on. The next thing my sister started praying alot using her catholic prayers and the sounds of chains whipping truck and sounds of people jumping slowly started to stop. Then when she would stop praying it continued again so back to her praying and everything stopped cause she would not stop praying as the truck that couldn't start up when all this action was going it started up and they took off and they seen what appeared to be two figures of bikers I think their jackets read "Hells angels" but no faces. It was so scarey. They never went back and in 6 months her so called boyfriend died. It was awful. Just thought I would share this true story never go at night creepy things will appear. No lie.

I just returned from a camping trip with family this holiday weekend and heard of the stories from Kearney Park. My relatives who lived their whole lives there in Fresno were telling us about ghost and strange things that go on there. They were car accidents due to sightings of ghosts. One thing they said is a little girl was found standing near the road,  as I write this chills are running up my back...They didn't really want to say much so they told me to search the web for information. This sounds interesting please post up recent visits if any, thanks.

Friend from L.A.

This is the absolute truth about kerney. The area is haunted, but not by a witch. it is haunted by Mr. Kerneys dead wife. Rumor has it she used to waunder around aimlessly and that he planted those trees so she will find her way back. Believe me this is no threat, just staf off of kerney road at night or you will regret it when you see her. it was the most terrifying experience of my life. X0

Kerney Mansion is truley beautiful, and historic it is said that there also were slave quarters, and that Mr. Kerney was a slave owner, the sprits that people are experiencing are those of dead slaves that were never freed.

Dead slaves? The house was built in 1903, how in the hell can there be dead slaves? The mansion as it is know today was originally to be the caretakers quarters. Kearney never got around to building the mansion as he died in 1906. And just to prove I'm not talking out of my ass, here's the info for the mansion. Not sure if it's haunted or not. I definitely don't believe there is any white witch that roams the place. http://historicfresno.org/nrhp/kearney.htm

I just came from Kearney Park, my friend had a birthday party there. There's a cemetery down the road, its not in the park and during the day its really beautiful but still eerie. When it started getting dark, the park goes pitch black and you can see fog rising up, which is really unusual in the summer. You can feel someone watching you from the house, and its even more creepy because the lights inside the house stay on. We had our little party not even 10 feet away from the mansion. Its a really beautiful house. When it got dark, a few of us saw some shadows in the distance and we all felt uneasy. Some of us heard muffled screaming coming from the house and some of us just felt like someone was watching us. It was horrifying trying to leave the park because it was so dark and foggy and the roads are windy and confusing. Its a really great place to visit, but if you get scared too easily, then maybe you shouldn't go. Don't really know if all these stories are real but that place is definitley haunted.
