Spooky Place: Haunted Post Office

Paranormal Post Office?

For many years, custodian Ed Nelson looked after the labyrinth of stairs and hallways in the grand old San Pedro, CA, Post Office. Although he no longer works here, employees still see him from time to time – and that would be fine, if it weren’t for the fact he passed away 28 years ago.

The facility’s General Clerk and historian, Brian Bundy, says that all San Pedro employees know about Mr. Nelson, and some think he’s still coming to work. Bundy himself has had some creepy close encounters.

Mr. Nelson was very attached to that building and took good care of it. Perhaps he still does.

Business Mail Acceptance Clerk Rosie Rivera worked with Ed Nelson, and was one of three co-workers that he left substantial amounts of money to after his death.

According to Rivera, Nelson never missed a day — until he passed away in 1983. Perhaps he’s also keeping his perfect attendance record intact.
