It's difficult to imagine a time in Southern California when the automible didn't dominate our landscape but there are signs (if you look for them) that once we were a horse and buggy town. There are some old houses that still have a concrete carriage step in front of their sidewalks. Even a few hauntings that involve a horse rider.
At the Mountain View Graveyard there is such a ghost. His name is William Cooper and he has only one arm. Story goes Mr. Cooper was born in England and lost his arm when he was nineteen, fighting in the Crimean War (1853 - 1856). He left his native England and relocated to Pasadena at the ripe old age of 55 in 1888 and lived to a very old age of 85 when he died in 1920. He may be dead but not gone. His ghost can be found riding on an old looking and tired horse around the graveyard. People have claimed to have seen a rather old looking man with dirty, unkept white hair and with only one arm, riding a horse around the grounds. He has been seen stopping in front of an angel statue holding a book near the enterance of the graveyard and taking off his hat and putting the hat over his heart and bowing down his head. A gentelmen even in death.
