The Los Coches Adobe is located in Soledad, CA and has been rumored to be haunted for almost as long as it has been vacant. It sits alongside Highway 101 in a part of Soledad that lays claim to the Soledad Mission and has a story that is integrally associated with the people of Soledad, past and present. Originally built as a Rancho in 1843, Los Coches’ most continual contribution to the area was as a Wells Fargo Station Agent office, post office, stage coach stop and inn. From 1854 until 1868, the Adobe became a popular inn and stagecoach stop for passengers of the Bixby Overland Stage, running between San Francisco and Los Angeles. On December 20, 1872, the railroad reached Soledad connecting the region to San Francisco and creating an important stopover for travelers. Until 1886, Soledad was the terminus for the railroad and there was a turntable located at the end of town, on which the train was turned around for its return trip north.
While the official website doesn’t elude to the haunting tales that surround it, the locals have always told a much different story.
