It’s said that ghosts from the early 1800s haunt Fort Ross. Kashaya Pomo were devastated by epidemics of European diseases. Finns & Alaskan natives were exiled to the rocky coast. No priest lived at the Fort & it could be years between visits of priests. 131 souls were buried in the outpost’s cemetery. Without spiritual guidance, spirits may still prowl the grounds of the isolated Fort. Had fun & put together a video for the season at
