Pictured: Located at the end of West 3rd and G streets in Benicia, the Crooks Mansion was built in the late 1880s by J.H. Crooks. However, it was Crooks' brother William and his sister Alice who occupied the building. After the death of Alice, it fell into disrepair and gained the reputation of being a "haunted house". There's a happy ending though ... the house has been restored and is privately owned.
