A Haunting Reputation: The Biscailuz Building on Olvera Street

Posted: July 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

The Paranormal Housewives and the LAPD Paranormal team were invited to visit the Biscailuz Building.  The BISCAILUZ BUILDING (1925-26) is located on the site of Juan Sepulveda’s adobe. It had served as the United Methodist Church Conference headquarters, the Plaza Community Center and the Consulate-General of Mexico. In 1968, it was named after Eugene Biscailuz, a former Los Angeles Sheriff, who had helped Christine Sterling in her struggle to save this historic section of Los Angeles. In 1978, Leo Politi painted a mural on the south and east facades that depicts the Blessing of the Animals, a traditional event held annually in El Pueblo on Easter Saturday. It now houses El Pueblo’s administrative offices.

This building has some claims of a haunting from hearing voices, babies crying, to the sound of a typewriter being used in an office where there isn’t one.  Since we had so much ground to cover we split up into two teams between the 3rd and 4th floors.  We found the building itself to be pretty quiet while we were there that evening, that is until we reviewed our audio.  One in particular really stands out.  This EVP was caught as we were on the 3rd floor.  We had just heard maintenance or security walking and talking in the stairwell.  Kimberly and one of the LAPD paranormal team members were talking about the folks in the stairwell and the voice on EVP is clearly commenting on them as well:
