The Creepiest Ghost Town In Oregon, Kinton, Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of
Sometimes, the scariest things are the most unassuming. For proof of this, look no further than Alfred Hitchcock. The Master of Suspense, Hitchcock knew how to mine tension and terror out of common, seemingly benign situations, and his films are truly the stuff of nightmares. Hitchcock would have liked Kinton, Oregon. The creepiest ghost town in Oregon, Kinton is an area whence it seems people left in in a big hurry — the town sits abandoned, silent, and shrouded in secrets.
Hitchcock could have easily made a movie about this ghost town in Oregon. Have you explored Kinton before? Is it a place that intrigues you?
