STRANGE-SANTA-FE "The Haunted Amelia Elizabeth White Mansion: a.k.a. "THE HOUSE OF 40 DOGS or MANSION OF THE HUNDRED DOGS" .   This page concerns investigations at this locale -- to take a Santa Fe ghost tour call 505-986-5002 or 505-231-1336  DOWNTOWN SANTA FE GHOST TOUR.  The tour does not do the mansion, this page = investigations

STRANGE-SANTA-FE  The late mistress of this 5 1/2 acre manor buried her dogs on her estate. How many doges were there. I gave up counting at 47 graves. Depending on the tale, (this Resident Evil -- Mistress of the Estate) Amelia White was a hedonists, an occultist and other baaad thaaaangs.  All kinds of creepy tales are attached to this mansion and Amelia White.  As you scroll down and read bout this curious place, note the pictures -- do they not strike you as creepy in a slight way?     

STRANGE-SANTA-FE   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 AMEILA WHITE and her Norge butler. Hmm.

One wild tale = not just dogs are buried in the cemetery.  However --- All mansions have that yarn.

Further down on this page there is a strange picture that makes one think, is that a beam of energy coming out of a grave?  

Also, there is a tomb and sarcophagus close by to this graveyard. Yes two humans were buried close to this gravesite...  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.


STRANGE-SANTA-FE   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 .

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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?

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

THE MANSION GROUNDS ARE 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 MANOR 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?

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

EVEN ODDER--- AMELIA's SISTER's TOMB WHICH IS NOW EMPTY AND AMELIA's SARCOPHAGUS ARE ON THE PROPERTY. THEY WERE NOT BURIED AT A GRAVEYARD BUT ON THE MANOR GROUNDS.

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. THIS MANSION IS NOT ON HIS TOUR THESE PICTURES ARE FORM HIS MANY INVESTIGATION OF THIS ODD PLACE.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

SO HOW MANY CROSSES ARE THERE-- UNKNOWN-- THROUGH THE DECADES SOME MARKERS HAVE BEEN KNOCKED DOWN AND PERHAPS A NUMBER OF THEM WERE NOT PUT BACK UP----ALSO = INTERESTING LEGEND -- INTERESTING LIE OR LORE. SOME OF THE PLATES OR CROSSES WERE STOLEN FOR HALLOWEEN PRANKS AND RITUALS-- THAT DARK TALE GOES DOES SOUND LOGICAL, BUT I DOUBT THAT ITIs TRUE.  THE PLACE IS TOO CREEPY FOR NIGHT PRANKSTERS OR EVEN DAYTIME JOKERS.

SANTA-FE-STRANGE

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 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.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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 KID' CLUB, THAT IS LOCATED DOWN THE STREET FROM THE MANSION, WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF AMELIA. THE PROPERTY zWHERE THE THE CLUB WAS LOCATED AND LIKEWISE THE CLUB WERE ONCE AMELIA's. 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 

ANOTHER WILD IDEA - DUE TO THE 2019 EPSTIEN SCANDAL -- IS THAT THE CLUB WAS A FRONT TO MASK EVIL THINGS AT THE MANION.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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.  THIS IS WHERE AMELIA GOT HER LOOT, FROM DADDY.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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? DID HER DOGS SERVE AS GUARD DOGS AS WELL.  WOLFHOUNDS ARE BRED TO PROTECT PEOPLE FROM WILD CRITTERS DURING THE END OF THE MIDDLE AGES.

STARANGE-SANTA -FE

AMELIA's DEFENDERS CLAIM THAT SHE WAS A COLORFUL OR ECCENTRIC PERSON, WHILE HER DETRACTORS CLAIM SHE WAS INTO THE DARK ARTS AND SELFISH WHEN IT CAME TO HELPING SANTA FEANS WHO WERE NOT OF HER CLASS.IT SEEMS THE ONLY SANTA FEANS OUTSIDE OF HER STATUS LEVEL THAT SHE HOBNOBBED WITH WERE A SELECT FEW LIBERAL ARTISTS.

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 ATTACKERS RAN OFF.

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

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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

THIS SUPPOSED TRUE STORY ADDS TO THOSE TWISTED YARNS THAT ARE ATTACHED TO THE HAUNTED MANSION. ONE OFF KILTER NON BELIEvABLE 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 -- DUE TO HOW AMELIA LIVED HER LIFE AND WHAT SHE DID--- THIS LED TO ALL KIND OF BLOOD RITE STORIES CONNECTED TO THIS ESTATE AND TO HER SISTER MARTHA.

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

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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 MANSION EMPLOYEES.

SOME OF THE  METAPHYSICAL STORIES = DOOR BELLS RING AT THE MANSION AND NOBODY IS THERE. FOOTSTEPS ARE 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.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE  = 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. MARTHA IS THE SISTER OF AMELIA WHITE.  SANTA FE TALES HAS IT THAT MARTHA AND AMELIA WERE INCESTUOUS  SISTERS.  AT BEST THEY WERE JUST TWO SELFISH PARTY GIRLS THAT LIVED WITH EACH OTHER.  

WHEN MARTH DIED DIED OF CANCER IN 1937, SHE WAS CREMATED. IN WHAT CITY THIS HAPPENED IS UNKNOWN, WHERE EXACTLY MARTHA DIED AS OF THIS ESAY HAS NOT BEEN FOUND OUT.

ON THE IDEA OF CREMATION, THAT ACT WAS RATHER STRANGE FOR 1937. WAS THE CREMATION OF MARTHA'S BODY PART OF A DARK ARTS RITUAL? 

ONE STORY FROM A MANSION DOUCENT HAS IT, AT ONE TIME THE CONTAINER THAT HELD MARTH"S ASHES, 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 INCESTIOUS.

STRANGE-SANTA-FE

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. AMELIA WAS INTERNED BODILY UNDER THIS SLAB IN A SARCOPHAGUS LIKE TOMB.  CITY RULES DUE TO WATER  CONTAMINATION, FORBIDS BODIES BEING BURIED IN A BACKYARD. YET SHE OR HER ESTATE GOT AWAY WITH THIS BLATANT BREAKING OF THE REGULATIONS.  ONE WONDERS HOW MUCH MONEY WAS PASSED UNDER THE CITY COUNCIL TABLE TO GET THAT DONE?

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.

SANTA-FE-STRANGE Appropriate music for this beyond bizzzaro mansion!

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 HER PORTRAIT. SUCH A STERN-MERCILESS LOOK.
