Hearse Castle [1] is the former home of Charles Foster Hearse and classified as a mansion [2] but holds many stunning wonders, including a winter landscape composed of artificial snow, a cathedral, the world's largest collection of books on supernatural phenomena, plants, trophies, and other trinkets he acquired.

HistoryEdit

At the height of his legendary career, Charles Foster Hearse built his own mansion and named it "Hearse Castle." Over time, he blanketed the landscape in artificial snow, as he liked winter, and even added the San Simoleon cathedral he relocated from Europe. [3] [4] [5] [6] Hearse Castle and its book collection was later featured on an episode of "Haunts of the Rich and Famous." [7] [8]

After Hearse passed on, his ghost haunted the mansion. Unbeknownst to everyone, the ghost was in search of a red sled named "Rosebud" so he could take it out for one last ride before peacefully dispersing. Some time later, the Ghostbusters accepted a challenge to try and capture Hearse for the coveted Ghost Hunter of the Year title. The team split up and explored most of the castle but eventually reunited in the basement where they inadvertently found the sled. They watched as Hearse took his final sled ride.

TriviaEdit

  • Hearse Castle and San Simoleon is a play on Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California. [9]
