The Zalud House                                                  Porterville, California

 

The Zalud House is a nostalgic glimpse into the past. 

 

Built in 1891, it is one of the few houses of that era that has not undergone remodeling. It has the mansard roof construction, which makes the house unique in its style of architecture.

 

From the time the house was built, only the Zalud family lived in the home. In fact, it is one of the few museums in the nation that is furnished entirely with the original owners' possessions.   The house was given to the City of Porterville by the Zalud families youngest daughter, Pearle, when she died in 1970.

 

The Zalud House is listed in the National Historical Registry of Old Houses and in the National Register of Historic Places. 

 
We were fortunate enough to be able to schedule an investigation with Benny and Heather Huerta of the Paranormal Movement. One of the great couples in the paranormal field. Both extremely professional, knowledgeable and very respectful to other paranormal teams coming into the Zalud House. And, just really nice people too. It was like we were stepping into their home. 
The house itself is prestine. It really is a museum, it is so well preserved and maintained. There is a lot of care and time that Benny and Heather put into this home.
 
When you step inside, you step back in time. Everything in that house is original from the Zalud family or from that era. With the exception of a few cars passing by, you are in a time warp bubble and feel immersed in what life must have been like in the early 1900s.
