1022 Humboldt Street
Stoiberhof MansionBuilt in 1907 this huge 15 bedroom/15 bath Italian Renaissance Revival home features an indoor mosaic swimming pool, the original elevator leading to a prohibition room, three dining rooms, a theatre stage, a barber shop, a bowling alley and hand painted biblical scenes on the ceiling beams in the library.“I was very fortunate to meet and marry my husband at Stoiberhof in 1972. While we were in residence here at 1022 Humboldt, there was a female headless ghost who sat on the end of the 20 foot long dining room table. She was extremely distressed and pleaded with anyone who would listen to help her find her missing head. As we all know, this could indeed be true as many “body parts” were left behind when they moved the bodies from the city cemetery to build what we now know as Cheesman Park. I don’t know if she ever found her head, but I do know that you can take walking tours in and around Cheesman Park and actually see the indentation from sunken graves in the park.”– Sonja Leonard Leonard
