RESIDENT EVIEL" The Haunted Amelia Elizabeth White Mansion: a.k.a. "THE HOUSE OF THE 40 DOGS" .  

The late mistress of this 5 1/2 acre manos buried her dogs on her estate. I gave up counting at 47 graves. Depending on the tale, this Resident Evil was a hedonists, an occultist and other baaad thaaaangs.

Investigating the Haunted "Pet Cemetery". Who has this many canines? One tale has it, that more than dogs were buried there by way of the Resident Evil and her Norge butler. Hmm. There is a tomb and sarcophagus close by. Welcome to Strange Santa Fe! 

THE WHITE MANSION SINCE 1972 IS THE HOME OF A RESEARCH FOUNDATION--SCHOLARS STUDY DIFFERENT SUBJECTS (MAINLY ANTHROPOLOGY) AT THE OLD SANTA FE ESTATE. THE PROFESSORS TAKE THEIR SABBATICAL ON THESE GROUNDS.

RESIDENT EVIL: AMELIA WHITE WAS AN HEIRESS AND DAUGHTER OF NEWSPAPER MOGUL HORACE WHITE. AMELIA-DEEDED HER MANSION AND FORTUNE TO HER FOUNDATION IN 1972, WHEN SHE DIED AT AGE 96.


AMELIA-- (RESIDENT EVIL) DEPENDING ON WHO YOU TALKE TO AND WHAT YOU RESEARCH WAS AN OCCULTIST---- SHE AND HER SISTER MARTHA WERE INTO ALL KIND OF ANCIENT HIDDEN THEMES OR BELIEFS.

YES, THE MANSION GROUNDS IS HAUNTED-MANY EX-WORKERS AND INVESTIGATORS AS WELL AS HOO-RAHS HAVE ATTESTED THAT ALL KINDS OF THINGS DO MANIFEST ON AMELIA's OLD PROPERTY .

AMELIA NAMED HER WALLED OFF MANSION "EL DELIRIO", WHICH TRANSLATED FROM SPANISH-- "THE "DELIRIUM". SUPPOSEDLY THE MANSION WAS NAMED AFTER A BAR IN BARCELONA.

THE WEIRD BEARDS DO NOT BELIEVE THAT STORY AS IN-- WHO WOULD NAME THEIR TAJ MAHAL AFTER A BAR?

EL DELIRIO!! WHICH MEANS THE DELIRIUM IS THE STRANGEST NAME I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED FOR A MANSION!!! THE DELIRIUM MANSION, ONE WONDERS WHAT KIND OF SEANCES WERE HELD THERE BACK IN THE 1920s & 1930s AND WHAT WAS CONJURED BY MISS RESIDENT EVIL?

THE MANSION GROUNDS IS SOMETHING OUT OF AN ALFRED HITCHCOCK FILM, THE ESTATE IS WELL KEPT AND FILLED WITH ODD LANDMARKS.

AMELIA KEPT WOLFHOUNDS AND AFGAN DOGS ON HER ESTATE, WHEN NOT RUNNING AROUND THE MANNER THEY WERE KEPT IN A KENNEL.

ON THE GROUND'S THERE IS A HUGE DOG CEMETERY WITH THE ODDEST OF NAMES ON THE BLUE CROSSES-- THERE IS NO ROVER OR SPOT ON THESE GRAVE CROSSES, ON A PLATES THERE ARE A FEW REGULAR PET NAMES, BUT NOT MANY.

THE NAMES ON THE CROSSES ARE GAELIC, AFGANI AND ANCIENT EGYPTIAN?

EVEN ODDER--- AMELIA's SISTER's TOMB WHICH IS NOW EMPTY AND AMELIA's SARCOPHAGUS ARE ON THE PROPERTY.

LOOKING OVER THE BURIAL SITE-IS A VERY MEAN LOOKING HARPY OR MINERVA LIKE STATUE. GADS!!!!! ALL KINDS OF STORIES AND THEORIES ARE LINKED TO (RESIDENT EVIL) AMELIA's OCCULT LIKES AND MONUMENTS.

WHEN YOU TOUR WITH ALLAN-- REST ASSURED HE HAS RESEARCHED SANTA FE'S HISTORY AND PARANORMAL

SO HOW MANY CROSSES ARE THERE-- UNKNOWN-- THROUGH THE DECADES SOME MARKERS HAVE BEEN KNOCKED DOWN AND NOT PUT BACK UP----AND ACCORDING TO ONE INTERESTING LEGEND--SOME OF THE PLATES OR CROSSES WERE STOLEN FOR HALLOWEEN PRANKS AND RITUALS-- THAT DARK TALE GOES BACK TO BEYOND THE MIDDLE OF THE LAST CENTURY.

ONE REVENGE TYPE STORY HAS IT THAT POOR HUNGRY SANTA FE KIDS OR TEENS, DURING THE DEPRESSION OR THE 1940s  SAW HOW WELL FED AMELIA WHITE's DOGS WERE---AND GOT THEIR REVENGE BY GOING AFTER THE DOG's MARKERS AMONGST OTHER THINGS.  AMEILA SUPPOSEDLY WAS NOT GENEROUS TO THESE HUNGRY SANTA FEANS THAT LIVED BY THE MANSION GROUNDS.

ONE THING ABOUT THAT STORY THAT IS DOES RING TRUE-- IS THAT I DID MEET SOME NOW PASSED ON ADULTS-- THAT RESENTED (RESIDENT EVIL) AMELIA AND HER DOGS DURING THE 1930s and 1940s--- AS IN HOW SHE DID NOT BLINK AN EYE WHEN IT CAME TO THE POOR OF SANTA FE--AS COMPARED TO HOW WELL SHE FED HER DOGS AND WHAT A LUXURIOUS LIFE SHE LED.

IT IS ON RECORD THAT AMELIA's DOGS WERE GIVEN EACH MORNING ONE EGG, HALF PINT OF MILK AND TWO HANDFULS OF PEERLESS RATIONS. FOUR NIGHTS A WEEK EACH DOG WOULD BE GIVEN 3 1/2 POUNDS OF RAW LEAN BEEF. ON OTHER NIGHTS, THE HOUNDS WOULD GET COOKED MEET, CARROTS, SPINACH, ONIONS,AND A BISCUIT OR RATION.

SANTA FE WAS A POOR TOWN UP UNTIL THE 1980s. DURING AMELIA's LIFETIME, MANY PEOPLE NEAR HER MANSION LIVED BELOW THE POVERTY LINE.

AS ONE WAG PUT IT----WHEN THE GRANDEE's (RESIDENT EVIL)  ANIMALS ARE FED BETTER THAN HUMANS, SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THAT GRANDEE's ATTITUDES ABOUT LIFE.

AMELIA's DEFENDERS ATTEST THAT THE GARCIA CLUB = WHICH IS A PRESCHOOL OR KIDS CLUB, THAT IS LOCATED DOWN THE STREET FROM THE MANSION, WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF AMELIA. THE PROPERTY AND THE CLUB ONCE BELONGED TO AMELIA AND THiS TRACT WAS LENT OUT BY THE GRANDEE.  THE DETRACTOR's CLAIM-- THAT THE CLUB WAS A BIG NOTHING--- THE CLUB WAS PUT INTO PLACE FOR AMELIA's EGO. OTHER NOW PASSED ON SANTA FEANS ATTEST THAT AMELIA DID NOT HELP RAISE THE STANDARD OF LIVING OF THOSE THAT LIVED IN THE AREAS AROUND HER MANSION 

ONE THING IS TRUE, WHILE MANY SANTA FEANS WENT HUNGRY DURING THE 1920s-1950s, AMELIA DID THROW LAVISH PARTIES FOR HER UPPER CLASS PALS. A DUMP FOR THE MANSION WAS FOUND OUTSIDE OF HER PROPERTY IN THE EARLY 2000's, THE LARGE TRENCH & HOLES ATTEST THAT AMELIA USED THE  MOST EXPENSIVE  PERFUMES AND OTHER NICETIES. NONE OF THOSE CREATURE COMFORTS BOUGHT BREAD  FOR THE HUNGRY IN SANTA FE OR EDUCATION FOR THE DISADVANTAGED YOUTH OF THE AREA.

AMELIA CAME TO SANTA FE in 1913 ON HER WAY TO SEE AN ECLIPSE IN CALIFORNIA, PREVIOUS TO THAT SHE HAD GONE TO SEE A FEMALE PAL FROM COLLEGE DAYS IN WAGON MOUND. AFTER THE ECLIPSE GIG--- AMELIA CAME BACK TO THE ROYAL CITY AND BOUGHT UP LARGE PARCELS OF PROPERTY.

AMELIAs FATHER WAS A MAN WITH DEEP POCKETS. HIS MONEY CAME FROM RAILROAD INTERESTS TO SHARES IN THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE AND NEW YORK POST.

AMELIA (RESIDENT EVIL) COULD BE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE ORIGINAL PARTY GIRLS OF SANTA FE--- SHE AND HER SISTER MARTHA---WHO WAS HER CONSTANT COMPANION -- LIVED THE LIFE OF A ROMAN NOBLE. PERHAPS THESE WOLFHOUNDS AND AFGANS THAT AMELIA HAD WERE SYMBOLIC AS IN -- HOW MUCH MONEY SHE HAD AND MAYBE HER DOGS WERE SOME TYPE OF LINK TO OCCULTISM? OF COURSE, AMELIA's DEFENDERS CLAIM THAT SHE WAS A COLORFUL OR ECCENTRIC PERSON, WHILE HER DETRACTORS CLAIM SHE WAS INTO THE HIDDEN DARK ARTS AND SELFISH WHEN IT CAME TO HELPING SANTA FEANS WHO WERE NOT OF HER CLASS OR WERE NOT INTO THE ARTS.

ONE ODD TALE----IN THE PET CEMETERY, IS SUPPOSEDLY THE GRAVE OF A WOLFHOUND NAMED "GARETH" THAT ALLEGEDLY GOT INTO A FIGHT WITH 7 WILD DOGS AT ONCE AND KILLED 4 OF THEM. THE OTHER 3 RAN BEATEN ATTACKERS RAN OFF.

TALL STORY? PROBABLY, BUT THIS TALE WAS SIGHTED IN A 1934 MAGAZINE, "THE AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB".

CAN A WOLFHOUND KILL 4 OUT OF 7 ATTACKING DOGS IN A FIGHT, AND ACCORDING TO THE TALE, THIS IS WHEN THE PACK OF DOGS ATTACK SIMULTANEOUSLY! REMEMBER THE ATTACKING DOGS WERE A ROVING, MEAN PACK OF HUNGRY ANIMALS THAT HAD PREVIOUSLY DEVASTATED LOCAL RANCHERS LIVESTOCK.

I HAVE MY DOUBTS ABOUT THE STORY, BUT THIS SUPPOSED TRUE STORY ADDS TO THOSE TWISTED YARNS THAT ARE ATTACHED TO THE HAUNTED MANSION. ONE OFF KILTER TALE HAS IT THAT-- THE ATTACKING DOGS FACED THE WOLFHOUND "GARETH" ONE AT A TIME, AS IN A PLANNED FIGHT TO THE DEATH. FOR MANY REASONS THE MANSION AND ITS MISTRESS AMELIA--ATTRACT OFF KILTER STORIES.

SIMPLY PUT-- AMELIA WAS EITHER ECCENTRIC OR INTO THE OCCULT, AND DUE TO HOW SHE LIVED HER LIFE AND WHAT SHE DID--- THIS LED TO ALL KIND OF BLOOD RITE STORIES CONNECTED TO THIS ESTATE AND TO (RESIDENT EVIL) AMELIA AND HER SISTER MARTHA.

HOWEVER!!! HOWEVER!!! THE GHOST STORIES THAT ARE LINKED TO THIS MANSION ARE SAID TO BE TRUE.

THE GRAVEYARD AND (CRYPT + SARCOPHAGUS-MORE ON THAT LATER) ALONG WITH CERTAIN PATHS AND BUILDINGS + MUSEUM ARE HAUNTED.

ON THE ESTATE PROPERTY THERE IS A MUSEUM--FILLED WITH ANCIENT POTTERY. GHOST HAVE BEEN SEEN IN THERE ACCORDING TO ONE JANITORS AND CLERKS. ALSO DOOR BELLS RING AT THE MANSION AND NOBODY IS THERE. OTHER HAPPENING HAVE FOOTSTEPS BEING HEARD--AGAIN NOBODY IS THERE. EVIL SHADOWS HAVE BEEN SEEN AND SOMETIMES TWO FEMALE VOICES ARE HEARD CHATTING-- BUT THEIR CONVERSATION CAN NOT BE MADE OUT.

PHOTO ON THE LEFT--- THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN AT THE PET CEMETERY AGES AGO-- WHAT IS IT? NO IDEA---- A BEAM OF ENERGY COMING OR GOING? WHAT DOES THAT NAME MEAN ON THE CROSS-- NO IDEA-- SOME TALES THAT SURROUND THIS GRAVEYARD AND AMELIA WHITE-- ARE ___ALFRED HITCHCOCK LIKE-- AS IN--- THAT THERE ARE NOT ONLY DOGS BURIED IN THE YARD-- HMMMMM? BUT ALL GOOD HAUNTED MANSION THEMES, HAVE THOSE KIND OF STORIES--- LIKE AN EGG ROLL ORDER, YOU GET CERTAIN KIND OF FOOD THAT COMES WITH IT---SAME THING WITH HAUNTED MANSION STORIES--- YOU GET THESE TYPE OF YARNS-- HOWEVER-----I CAN NOT EXPLAIN THE PHOTO.



THIS CRYPT IS NEXT TO THE PET CEMETERY, THE BUILDING USED TO HOLD THE ASHES ---IN A URN---- OF MATHA WHITE, WHO DIED IN 1937. ONE STORY FROM A CARETAKE HAS IT AT ONE TIME THE CONTAINER WAS PUT INSIDE THE HEAD OF THE EVIL LOOKING STATUE. WHEN RESIDENT EVIL AMELIA DIED IN 1972, THE URN WAS BURIED IN A SARCOPHAGUS NEXT TO THE BODY OF AMELIA OR ATOP OF HER CHEST.. AMELIA AND MARTHA NEVER MARRIED AND WERE PRETTY MUCH INSEPARABLE. AMELIA's CRITICS RAISE THEIR EYEBROWS WHEN THEY SPECULATE ABOUT AMELIA' AND HER SISTER's PRIVATE LIVES AS IN BEING LESBIANS OR INCESTIOUS. NOTE THE MINERVA FACE STATUE ON THE FRONT OF THE CRYPT. THAT MONSTROSITY IS HUGE AND IT LOOKS OVER THE SARCOPHAGUS OF AMELIA.  THE SCALE OF THE STATUE IS IMENSE, AS COMPARED TO ALLAN-- WHO MAKES A SCOWL, LIKE THE STATUE.

CITY REGULATIONS WERE BROKEN WHEN AMELIA WAS BURIED IN THE BACK OF HER MANSION, THE RESIDENT EVIL LADY WAS INTERNED BODILY UNDER THIS SLAB IN A SARCOPHAGUS LIKE TOMB.  CITY RULES DUE TO WATER  CONTAMINATION, FORBIDS BODIES BEING BURIED IN A BACKYARD.

THE WHITE MANSION IS FILLED WITH ALL KINDS OF PARANORMAL TALES.

DOWN THE HILL FROM THE TOMB AND SARCOPHAGUS IS A WATER WORKS, IT IS ATTACHED TO AMELIA's HOME. THERE ARE MANY BUILDINGS ON THE ESTATE.

MARTHA WHITE AS "AMAZON QUEEN PENTHESILIA", SHE FOUGHT AT TROY AGAINST THE GREEKS.

ABOVE MARTHA ELIZABETH WHITE AS "PHARO-ES NEFERTITI", IT SEEMS BY WAY OF ARCHIVES & EVIDENCE, THE WHITES WERE  WRAPPED UP IN EGYPTOLOGY, "THE BOOK OF THE DEAD" & THE OCCULT.  THE TOMB, THE STATUE, THE WATER WORKS, AND A LOT MORE HAVE SOME WEIRD BEARDS THINKING THAT THE LAYOUT OF THE MANSION HAS TO DO WITH REINCARNATION AND ANCIENT DARK ARTS…WHAT GETS ME--- IS WHAT A SINISTER POSE AMELIA ELIZABETH WHITE TOOK FOR THIS PORTRAIT.  

The below photo I took during an investigation of the mansion, the estate is filled with many buildings. I cannot explain this photo. I presume it is a reflection, but how it got fragmented is unknown. The whitch costumed lady is Amelia Elizabeth White. RATHER STRANGE SNAPSHOT!  I get A photo of this odd woman or occultist dressed as a witch in a picture that is fragmented.  How DID this happen, the resident evil strikes again. YEs the mansion grounds are haunted, this photo only adds to the legend of the estate. How this photo happened? I was looking out into the courtyard and shot the waterworks, later I find this strange picture on my camera.   

RIGHT-- THE SONG "SEASON OF THE WITCH" COINCIDES WITH THE ABOVE PICTURE-------PAGE 2 IS BEING CONSTRUCTED--- MORE INFO ON THE HAUNTED MANSION INVESTIGATION COMING SOON.
