Welcome to Portland Ghosts

Welcome to the weirdest city in the West, where the persecuted souls of indentured servants and victims of deadly diseases and afflictions surround all those who venture into their final resting place.

 

The American Dream With A Nightmare Beginning

 

At a glance, Portland appears to be a perfect mixture of trendiness and nostalgia with its grasp on evolving industries and preserved historical architecture. What hides in the darkness just beneath the surface of Portland’s well-lit streets are the echoes of centuries of bloodshed and agonizing deaths that leech from the city’s foundations. The devastation these events left behind can be felt in and outside of the city’s most beloved hangouts, such as the parking lot on SW Pine & SW 2nd. 

 

Repeated supernatural occurrences that plague the area have drawn ghost hunters and supernatural enthusiasts from all over the country.  The very land locals and visitors walk daily on is said to be the original burial site for dozens of Native Americans who were exposed to catastrophic diseases that resulted in countless excruciating deaths. The savage ends these tribes faced were just a precursor to the area’s forsaken future. 

 

Follow along on a ghost tour with Portland Ghosts to uncover a cursed history overflowing with nefarious and deadly criminal activity that made the entire city of Portland a redlight district teeming with salacious and sinister deeds. From a deadly fire with an unknown origin that raged for days, destroying tens of thousands of buildings and claiming hundreds of tragic victims to an organized criminal network that “shanghai’d” thousands of innocent sailors and workers–Portland is a city full of hauntings that continues to produce chilling episodes of unexplained activity that unsuspecting visitors claim to be eyewitnesses to. 

 

The calamitous events that have unfolded throughout its shocking history make many people wonder: is Portland cursed and haunted?  The answer most of its residents give is an unequivocal yes.  Join a Portland Ghosts tour to find out just how cursed and haunted the city really is.

 

WHAT WILL I SEE?

 

Tales of The Merciless and The Unfortunate Innocent

 

The savagery that birthed the devious side of Portland continued to ravage the city well into the twentieth century. Discover the disturbing origins of the beleaguered Roseland Theater, the infamous music venue that’s seen some of the biggest names in music and some of the area’s most heinous acts. 

 

Hear the twisted account of the death of 21-year-old publicity agent Timothy Moreau whose desire to do the right thing led to his violent and untimely end. 

 

The former owner of the Roseland Theater and his former assistant would ultimately be convicted of Timothy’s murder however, it provided little solace as his body was never recovered. Stage lights flickering on and off, equipment crashing to the floor, and items moving on their own are just a few of the unexplained sightings that have led some to believe Timothy is a mainstay of this ill-fated venue.

 

WHY IS PORTLAND SO HAUNTED?

 

Why Portland’s Past Won’t Stay Buried

 

Portland’s popularity can be partially attributed to its plethora of local breweries, drawing beer connoisseurs in from all over the country. But before the days of care-free consumption, there was a time when a simple end-of-the-day pint could be the start of a tormented life with death being the only way out. Embark on a terrifying journey through the time of the Shanghai Tunnels, an infamous piece of history that mercilessly claimed the lives of thousands leaving their tortured spirits to roam the streets of Portland.

 

The Shanghai Tunnels may sound like a myth but their existence and the carnage that’s forever embedded in the walls are very real, their dark energy engrossing its surroundings. Learn about the poor, unfortunate souls who were drugged and kidnapped from local saloons and sold to ship captains, forcibly spending their days as indentured servants. 

 

The trafficking of humans was only the beginning as these tunnels served as the mecca for all sorts of felonious deeds including drug use and illicit acts. Conditions underground were unbearable at best resulting in the agonizing deaths of those claimed by their captors. 

 

Today, the screams and wailing of the tormented can still be heard with some claiming to have been touched by a cold wet hand. The atrocities that befell the Shanghai Tunnels can be felt and sometimes seen throughout the area which led them to be declared as one of the Top Ten Most Haunted Places in America by National Geographic.  

 

The Diabolical Never Dies

 

The horrors that immersed the tunnels weren’t limited to the one spot. Visit the menacing Erickson’s Saloon and uncover the disturbing details of the “crimpers’, the devilish captors that shanghaied men from the saloon’s drunk tank and forced them into a doomed existence as a sailor.

 

The women did not fare any better. Hear about the atrocious acts and conditions they were forced to endure in the upstairs portion of the saloon. Evil ran rampant in Erickson’s Saloon and while it’s since been converted to apartments following an early1900s fire, the malevolence of its past has never left.

 

Discover the terrifying accounts of encounters with the spirits of the forlorn condemned to this spot for eternity. Some witnesses claim to have seen a morose woman with hollow, darkened eyes while others have seen the unwilling sailors themselves, possibly in search of the life they once knew. 

 

The Persistence of Evil

 

Up until the mid-70s, tragic ends were almost a staple of this sullen building. Here, you’ll learn the horrendous accounts of the 1975 fire that ravaged the building killing 11 of its unlucky residents. Decades later the blood-curdling sounds of the unanswered cries can still be heard from inside the building.

 

Workers that participated in its renovations have reported an eerie presence that had no qualms about brushing up against them. Tools and objects are said to have been tossed in the air by an invisible force. The manifestations know no bounds, and you just may be the next to be confronted by its ominous past. 

 

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT PORTLAND GHOST TOURS?

 

Uncover a Side of Portland You Won’t See in Your News Feed

 

Portland’s former life serves as the dark side of a place full of fun and wonderment, as almost no place is free of the supernatural. Visit the eerie Kell’s Irish Pub, a popular restaurant that appears quaint on the outside but harbors a twisted and grisly secret: Kell’s Cigar Room connects with one of the Shanghai Tunnels.

 

The unexplained activity experienced by staff and patrons alike is otherworldly, including a sighting of a sinister black cloud and a disembodied face in the mirror, seen by the manager himself. From TVs and music coming on by themselves to furniture being rearranged, join us to uncover the supernatural happenings that dominate some of Portland’s most beloved hot spots.

 

A Unique Approach to Introducing the Rose City

 

You might be surprised to discover that some of Portland’s seemingly mainstream operations are home to a slew of supernatural quirks all their own. Discover the unusual tale of HooDoo Antiques’ extraordinary portrait that comes to life via the apparition of the woman it was created for. Sightings of the woman range from witnessing her spirit floating across the room to seeing her image in the storefront’s glass. Be sure to check your photos after this one.

 

Visit Electric Lettuce, the former pharmacy turned dispensary that has proof of its unexplained activity on surveillance. Countless clips show what most can’t believe however, there’s nothing like an eyewitness account such as that from a security guard that heard a conversation from an invisible source, only to discover footage of two apparitions standing together.

 

He promptly quit and never returned. These stories and more offer a unique albeit spine-chilling perspective to this vibrant and lively city. You’ve experienced the side of Portland that both attracts visitors and retains locals, now experience a side that the afterlife can’t leave.

 

Experience the History of Portland Firsthand

 

Just like the city itself, there’s a little something for everyone on Portland Ghost Tours. From ghost hunters to history buffs, sightseers, and everyone in between, every minute of this supernatural tour will keep you entranced, captivated by the incredible true tales of a demented time that, for the trapped souls of Portland, has yet to end.
