White Lady Ghosts

White Lady Ghost

A very common type of ghost is that known as the White Lady. The White Lady is a type of female ghost usually connected to a local legend. The legend usually involves some sort of tragedy, often murder, although occasionally suicide. The ghost is often clad in a flowing white dress and her skin, eyes, and often hair are usually all chalky white. Generally the details of each specific White Lady story or legend are vague and difficult to actually confirm with fact.

Although often there are similarities, especially here in California, to the Mexican legend of La Llorona or the Weeping Woman, the White Lady ghost is not to be confused with the those stories. The La Llorona legend always deals with weeping, water, and the death of children, and although occasionally White Lady ghosts have some of these elements, their tales usually have more in common with the White Lady ghosts of the United Kingdom.

In California, there are several White Lady ghosts.
