Haunted places in Portland Oregon?

31 posts in this topic

Not sure if this is the proper forum to post this in, but I just moved to Portland Oregon and I'm looking for some places thought to be haunted or experience paranormal activity that don't require taking a tour to do investigate. If anyone lives in this area, has lived here before, or know some history about PDX it'd be greatly appreciated if you could let me know. Portland has the most interesting, disturbing and sickening history in the Northwest because of slavery and shanghai'ing between the mid 1800's and right before WW II. I know there has to be some places here that experience unexplained phenomena. I've been doing some research online but the only thing listed are tours.

If I posted this in the wrong forum please just move it to the proper area! Thanks so much! :tu:

Portland - Cathedral Park - In the summer of 1949, 15 year-old Thelma Taylor was murdered under the St. Johns Bridge, also known as Cathedral Park. In the present day, disembodied screams can be heard late at night during the summer, and the police have been dispatched numerous times to the area without finding any evidence of foul play.

Portland - Burger King downtown - Haunted by an unknown entity.

Portland - Buttertoes Restaurant - this ghost, "Lydia", has been seen by numerous people.

Portland - Columbian Cemetery - former Love Cemetery and Columbia Cemetery- this ghost, "Lydia", has been seen by numerous people.

Portland - ComedySportz - ComedySportz is haunted by an unknown female entity. When the building is nearly empty, employees and performers have heard a woman talking or laughing-sometimes quite loudly- in the back room where costumes and equipment is stored. The ladies room toilet has also had problems and flushed endlessly with no explanation. Employees have also seen lights in parts of the building, only to go back to turn them off and discover that no lights were on.

Portland - Fairmount Apartments - Manvelant and benevolent hauntings. This is a building that is located on the corner of NW 26th and Vaughn Street in northwest Portland. This is the last building standing from the centennial celebration of the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1905. It was once a grand hotel and it now an apartment complex. Some of the residents over the years, have reported seeing apparitions late at night, while others have felt somewhat of a threatening presence mostly on the lower floors especially in the halls. Upstairs, the presence is not as threatening.

Portland - Hollywood Theatre - Built in the twenties at least 4 past managers have actually SEEN the spirit of a man in a white suit in the upstairs lobby. Rattling pipes backstage is also a common occurrence.

Portland - Kennelworth park - said to be a young girl was raped and killed there, often walking in the park at night you can hear trying to scream or see her walking around the area.

Portland - KWJJ Radio Station - In 1990, the station was at a building called The Wilcox Mansion. It actually went there on career day back in 1986. It was a beautiful mansion that used to be a living area, but has since been turned into offices. Some of the stories are the grand piano being played when no one but the graveyard DJ is there. Also stories of the massive chandelier swinging for no reason, and this was a massive thing that you usually see in movies. DJ's have been spooked so much in the past, that they had been known to have locked themselves in the DJ booth while working the graveyard shift. KWJJ moved out of the building a few years back.

Portland - KUPL Station - There has been sightings of a man's face in the window. Also CD's that have been set out mysteriously disappear after the DJ turns away.

Portland - LOTUS-nightclub downtown - Reports of something VERY creepy in the basement - has scared employees so badly, they refuse to talk about it. a bartender, alone after closing had finished cleaning the bar-i.e. no glasses were left out, etc. and went downstairs-to the creepy basement?-and heard a CO2 canister activate. A very distinct sound and not made when not in use-that is to say there is no pressure release on CO2 cylinders. Upon coming back upstairs the bartender found an upside-down shot glass on the bar.

Portland - Lewis & Clark College - Find your way to the center of the campus, around 1:00am and you will likely feel someone or something there with you. On many occasions you can hear screaming and Yelling as if a mob is chasing someone through the old campus. On rare occasions you will see multiple apparitions come running through the campus center, one being chased by a group of 10-15.

Portland - Marshall High School - a former night janitor said she herd strange sounds and once something said her name. She always works alone.

Portland - Oaks Park - This amusement park built in 1890 has been plagued with a ghostly apparition of a lone child in 70's style clothing for over 20 years.

Portland - Old OMSI building - This science museum was shut down in the early 90's and moved to a new location, but people visiting the surrounding parks and zoo hear odd noises and see strange lights coming from the abandoned empty building. - July 2005 Update: This building was remodeled and opened as the Portland Children's Museum in 2001. www.portlandcm2.org. The building used to be rather creepy, most especially in the downstairs areas near the gem room. Those areas are employees-only now.

Portland - Old Town Pizza Company - The place of an old pizza parlor, still in business. Very eerie and not very welcoming. The lights are dark and the atmosphere is spooky. The basement is said to be haunted by someone. There have been reports of things moving and things being replaced. Many of the workers won't go downstairs because of eerie feeling. Said to be a spirit who lurks around downstairs.

Portland - Scapponia Park - North of Portland - There is said to be the ghost of a man and his dog. In the late 1800's there was a horse thief who lives in an old cabin in the area of Scapponia Park. One night an angry mob took the man and hung him and shot his dog. It is said that they are buried together under a large oak tree in the camp ground.

Portland - Shanghai Tunnels - The shanghai Tunnels were used for kidnapping able men to work on boats. Now are said to be haunted by the men.- June 2005 Update/Additional Information – This is a rather infamous part of Portland as the name suggests. Men would be shanghaied, beaten up to awaken aboard a ship. Also, women would be kidnapped and sold into the sex business. This form of slavery is something that has been both remembered and forgotten (usually at the same time) by Portland natives alike. It is said that the spirit of "NINA" has been known to haunt the halls of the tunnels. The spirit has been seen as that of a woman in white, which matched the description of a girl named Nina who died in those tunnels. In fact, the apparition has been known to stay pretty close to where her name "NINA" has been carved into the brick in one of the passages there. It is an original carving that was put there back in the day.

Portland - Tryon Creek State Park - When the conditions are right, generally right before a major storm, if you are out along the North Rim Trail you will hear the sound of horses in harness and smell fresh cut timber, even though the last time the area was logged was in the late 1800's. Down by the creek you can hear in the early morning, the sound of men getting ready for a day of work in the woods.

Portland - University of Portland - Franz Hall - A janitor was said to have been cleaning the second floor when all of the mechanical doors (which can only be opened and closed by pushing the master button that is locked in a box in the wall that the janitors have the keys to).

Portland - University of Portland - Theater - there is a ghost of a young girl who haunts the theatre. She is said to be seen in the basement storage, on the stage, and in the draft room late at night while students worked. She often tries to touch students and changes the station or volume on the radio when students are drafting should she dislike a station or like a song. She has often "hung out" with students while they worked late at night. She is dressed in a Victorian 1900's or so dress and hat with lace trim.

Portland - Villa St Rose School for girls - It was said that before Villa St Rose was a school for girls, it was an orphanage run by Catholic nuns. In the gymnasium you can often hear little kids voices, running of little feet and laughing. Many students and some of the nuns have reported hearing this.

Portland - White Eagle Tavern - A stairway is haunted in the kitchen area off the office area. The manager has gotten trapped there by various cleaning equipment.

Portland - Willamette - Mansion - This massive mansion directly across the river from Waverly country club is still unfinished. The foundation is the remains of the city's water pump house. A number of years after its construction began the owner/builder hung himself in the elevator shaft. It has remained under slow construction and is haunted by this mans spirit. Doors locked behind us, brooms fell, lights turned on without us turning them.

Portland - Willamette River - For the past two years a phantom rowboat has been sighted along this river. It has no one on the boat but when the coastguard goes to retrieve the boat it disappears right in front of there eyes

From Shadowlands....They are pricks and dont listen to reason, but they have an extensive list.

Thanks for the help! yeah and I know a bit about Shadowlands....most of their info is based on folktale and not facts. Part of the reason why I wasn't too keen on using their resources. But I guess I will have to...sigh....

Thanks again Mr. Noah!

YEah, i did an investigation at one of the spots they had on there site. I did an entire weekend investigation and they were missing A LOT of the story. I simply emailed them what the staff of the place had said, and they said and i quote "Better get your facts straight before emailing us crap, Take us off your emailing list"

Guess they would rather have wrong information on their site.

My sister went to Lewis and Clark college for 4 years and noone said a word to me about any ghost stories, even when I stayed with her at her dorm. If there had been some phenomenal ghost story as reported, somebody would've told me about it just to spook me, lol.

Here's an old thread on the same topic. There's places listed there that aren't on that shadowlands list.

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum...amp;mode=linear

I had friends that experienced ghost type activities in the Burger King on Burnside, the Imbrie Farmstead and the Meier and Frank building. Might've been a different haunted thread but one of the buildings at PSU (Lincoln Hall?) was also purported to be haunted.

I so agree with you, I've been looking and all I could find were tours of peoples basements, blegh. If you happen to find A spot let me know, I am in dire straits to find spiritual to demonic activity somewhere in Portland. I already tried Cavalry Cemetery located on Burnside in the west hills; last night actually lol. Anyway, if you find a spot, hit me up at sesshomaru9771@yahoo.com

Hail to the Portland, OR person.

I used to live 90 miles north of there and found it a nice place...when it's not snowing or blazing hot. LOL

As for finding a place in PDX that is haunted, there are several sites out there that will list some places, however you must realize that some of these places are private property and the chances of really any of them being open to the public are very few.

If you want to check a few places, since it seems that you are close to the WA border, then I could REALLY tell ya a few places going north (even some places that were near me at the time).

there is a bar or it may be a resturant now on 175th and stark, it is shaped like a pyramid, I used to go there back in 2000 to wait for my friend to get off work. and I got to hang out when they were closeing down the bar. on 2 ocasions I saw things out of the corner of my eye that I couldn't explain. first thing I saw was pages on a jukebox being browsed (upper balcony)but no one was there, as soon as I looked directly at the jukebox it stopped. another was a shadow of a person moving on their upper balconywhen I told my friend about it he said stuff like this happens almost every night and that everyone has goten used to it. he also said he heard voices sometimes.this was my first and only experience and it has made a believer out of me.

Pretty darn inclusive list, I must say. Thanks to all for taking the time to compile the info from all the books and/or websites used as sources.Maybe I overlooked the name of the books and authors but I'f like to find them out to see if they, the authors, do one state by state. Thanks.

The reason why you would hear horses in Tryon creek is because there is a horse trail there, along with an exercise ring for the animals. :P

I have no idea why someone would put that in, maybe they were visiting and didn't know about the horse trails.

I'm from Salem myself, and I'm forever searching for places to go to. I agree, sadly, Shadowlands is pretty much all urban legend and myth. It's hard to tell what is fact and fiction. I know the Elsinore Theater in downtown Salem has somethingas I've felt it. However I'm not that experienced about Portland sadly. Let me know if you discover anything? =)

Portland - Kennelworth park - said to be a young girl was raped and killed there, often walking in the park at night you can hear trying to scream or see her walking around the area.

I used to live one house away from here. I never heard screams, but I would occasionally hear something like struggling late at night, between 11 pm and midnight (when I was walking by on my way home from work). Neighbors never reported screams either, but of sounds similar to the ones I have heard. I have no idea what it was, but I lived in the area for two years and it always seemed to happen in late summer more often than other times.

O , I am finding some interesting links , I will share them here for you....Pm me , I might even be interested in some of them.....

http://www.beachconnection.net/news/ghost1006_0174.htm

This one is so-so....although the Oregon Vortex is listed there , and that place is a trip for sure...Little quote below on it..... http://www.ghostsandcritters.com/oregonghosts.html

"Even skeptics would enjoy a visit to the Oregon Vortex to try and "discover" the secrets of some of the visual effects or explain the apparent expansion and contraction of people when entering the vortex. I have practiced with optical illusions myself over time, but if all of this is a trick, I don't see how it was done. If someone has an explanation, I would be interested in seeing how it was done myself.

Another interesting note about the Oregon Vortex, it is haunted. Several visitors to the vortex have seen Lister standing at the top of the sloping floor of the old log cabin. He is usually seen resting against the wall, laughing and plucking his eyebrow. The visitors have asked the guide the identity of the man who somehow got ahead of the tour. One tour guide looked inside and recognized Lister from an old photograph. After the quick look, Lister disappeared. When the other tour guides have looked inside the cabin, there was no one there. Anyone leaving the cabin by the back door would have been seen."

Portland - LOTUS-nightclub downtown - Reports of something VERY creepy in the basement - has scared employees so badly, they refuse to talk about it. a bartender, alone after closing had finished cleaning the bar-i.e. no glasses were left out, etc. and went downstairs-to the creepy basement?-and heard a CO2 canister activate. A very distinct sound and not made when not in use-that is to say there is no pressure release on CO2 cylinders. Upon coming back upstairs the bartender found an upside-down shot glass on the bar.

How could the upstairs of the Lotus Cardroom not be haunted? The building used to be a hotel but now the ground floor is a bar (with legal gambling due to it being grandfathered in) and the upstairs appears to be abandoned. It looks creepy from the street.

for what it's worth, i highly highly advise against going to the shanghai tunnels. i finally made it on one of their tours after two years of wanting to go and it was such a huge disappointment. the group is huge, 50 people then you split up into two groups...the tour guide speaks so quietly you can barely hear him, you're all squished into tiny tunnels and can barely see anything. it's not at all the tunnels i expected, it is basically a little 'u' shape under some extremely loud bars.

i don't mean to sound negative or mean, i read the reviews only after i went and wish i would have read them before. it is a major letdown.

To each their own, of course. But I toured the Shanghai Tunnels and completely loved it.

oh yeah, absolutely. i'm glad you loved it so much! i think i was just disappointed that i didn't see anything, hear anything or feel anything. i wasn't expecting it but i knew with such a large group and so much noise, that the chances were very slim. it is incredibly rich in history though, that part of the tour definitely doesn't disappoint.

The freaking Catacombs, those are super, super scary. Ive been down there, and I got such bad feelings from going there that I had to leave. I live about an hour away from portland, and Ive never gone back to there. Also, I know its not in portland, but Cloudcap Inn on Mt. Hood and Tillyjane campsite are the most haunted places ive been. Ive seen a lady walking around in 1900's attire around 2 in the morning on several occasions.

Were you with your friend Jack Daniels at the time?

for what it's worth, i highly highly advise against going to the shanghai tunnels. i finally made it on one of their tours after two years of wanting to go and it was such a huge disappointment.

It's not as good as the Seattle Underground. Those tunnels go quite a ways and are still in some degree of use.
