Just a few miles east of the hustle and bustle of San Diego’s historic Sherman Heights neighborhood. Created in the year. By 1867, Matthew Sherman had unique Victorian houses and architecture. Villa Montezuma was built for musicians, writers and spiritualists. Jesse Shepard in 1887 was named “Palace of the Arts”, a place for music art. And literature

1880s is one of the most vibrant and exciting of San Diego. Land and property boom attracted many settlers and opportunists, as well as artists, poets and musicians into this modern city by the bay. Spiritual movement – the belief that the deceased can communicate with the living person from afar – is gaining in popularity and has many prominent followers in this period. Spiritual photography, crystal gazing, aka ouija boards, tarot reading, and séances are very modern.
Jesse Shepard is a believer in Spiritualism and claims to have communicated with the spirits of the greatest composers in the world through his music. He officially told the San Diego Union that Spiritualism and seans were never held at Villa, but rumors were circulating that his concert at Villa had many Spiritualist elements and some of its most prominent citizens. San Diego joined on a regular basis.

Recently, I visited this beautiful mansion and received full attention from attention to details, design, art and interior design. Stained glass windows in the north-east tower are my favorite because of the beautiful four seasons. Photos of the interior are not allowed otherwise I will flood you with a photo of the amazing details of every corner and crany. I am eagerly awaiting the date. Villa Montezuma can open the door regularly to the public.
A friend of Villa Montezuma, the Villa maintenance organization, said, “Enchanted,” and I think it perfectly explained. I do not feel like there are ghosts living in Villa, but I believe that shining through stained glass windows and shimmering chandeliers is Jesse’s long-lasting impression and short span of time, but “passionate” here.
