What are the most haunted places in Oregon?
The ultimate terrifying Northern Oregon road trip is right here – and you’ll want to take it. Here are a few of the highlights.
- Battery Russell (Fort Stevens State Park, Warrenton, OR): Built in 1863, Fort Stevens' rich and interesting history dates back to the Civil War. In 1942, a Japanese submarine fired at it, and in 1947, the fort and its battery were shuttered. We can see the vacant buildings today as part of a 4,300-acre state park. But be warned, a ghost of a soldier reportedly haunts the place with a flashlight, patrolling the area. Folks say when they approach the spirit, he disappears right in front of them. Camping anyone?
- Flavel House Museum (714 Exchange St, Astoria, OR): Some of the most notorious ghosts are attributed to one of the best-preserved examples of Queen Anne architecture. Built in 1884-85, the Flavel House was owned by Captain George Flavel and his family, who are said to remain in residence. They have been heard speaking to one another and playing music. When folks go to investigate, the rooms are empty. Capt. Flavel's spirit has been spotted in his bedroom, and a woman's ghost is sometimes in the hallway of this spooky mansion.
- Portland Shanghai Tunnels (120 NW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR): A site for illegal activities, including human trafficking, Shanghai Tunnels, used between 1850-1941, are among the most haunted places in the U.S. This creepy network of abandoned tunnels beneath the cobblestone streets of Old Town still reportedly contains the remains of the most horrible suffering, including phantom moaning and screaming. Many died in this horrifying place where prisoners were kept in multiple cells. Portions of the tunnels still stand where we can tour if we dare.
