Haunted Place - Velasco Pueblo

ADDRESS:

471-477 South Stone Pueblo
Tucson, Arizona

DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY

In 1850, this adobe home started off with 3 main rooms and an entry hall. Other sections of the house were added onto this main house, all the way up through the 1880s. These grander rooms have 15 foot high ceilings, constructed with Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir. A major renovation of the home took place when its most famous owners, Carlos Velasco and wife Beatriz, moved into the house, in 1878. Carlos Velasco accomplished much in his life. He would be classified as a real achiever. He was a Sonora State Senator, a district judge, a general store operator, started a Spanish newspaper right in this house, in one of the south rooms, and started a fraternal insurance society in response to growing anti- Hispanic feelings in the community.

As the years past, the adobe house fell into disrepair, and even suffered a fire in one of the bedrooms. Thankfully, the Velasco Pueblo was rescued by 3 new owners, Brown, Dillon and Cobb, who took on the huge project to renovate this historic pueblo to its former glory.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:

It wasn't long before the new owners found out that they had an unexpected resident watching their renovation efforts.

1) While working near the dark, wall-blackened by fire, bedroom, located off the room that was used for the Spanish newspaper business, Brown looked up and saw an apparition of an upper torso of a Mexican man, sporting a mustache, who was looking at Brown. After looking at pictures, Brown positively identified this apparition as being Carlos Velasco.

2) At least 3 other occurrences of Senior Velasco standing or lounging in various parts of the adobe have been reported by other witnesses.

CHARACTERISTICS:

The ghost of Velasco when he makes himself visible to the living, looks directly, and steadily in a calm manner at the startled people. He likes to see the work that is being done to his house, and isn't upset at all with the renovation. He also likes to reset the clocks and rearranges the furniture in ways that are considered odd by the new owners.
