Don't Discount These 7 Local Ghost Stories Until You've Explored The Town Of Spokane, Washington Yourself
Ghosts live in Spokane, Washington, as anyone who visits these seven haunted places may attest. The legends and lore attached to them have taken on lives of their own over the past century, in some cases. Regardless of your level of belief in ghosts, curses, or other phenomena, these sites are fun to visit, whether as a special trip or as part of a walking tour of downtown Spokane. What’s fun about these places is there are some classic architecture and interior design elements to experience, apart from the potential for ghost sightings.
1. Davenport Hotel
Davenport Hotel Tower, 111 S Post St, Spokane, WA 99201, USA
The ghost of the hotel's founder, Louis Davenport is said to roam the property in his bathrobe and slippers. There are also tales of disappearing bellhops and invisible cigar smokers. Here's more
history of the Davenport.
2. Patsy Clark Mansion
Patsy Clark Mansion Wedding Venue and Event Center, 2208 W 2nd Ave #5417, Spokane, WA 99201, USA
The ghost of Mary Clark, the wife of mining businessman Patrick "Patsy" Clark, is known to appear on the stairs, dressed for a party. Spirits also may lurk in the old wine cellar in the basement. The Mansion is now a wedding and event center. The flamingos pictured in the yard are not part of the haunting, however.
3. Campbell House
Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, 2316 W 1st Ave, Spokane, WA 99201, USA
Some visitors claim to have seen ghosts; others believed they were being allowed around the Campbell House or that a portrait of the owner was tracking them with his eyes. The house is part of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture.
4. Bing Crosby Theater
901 W Sprague Ave, Spokane, WA 99201, USA
No ghost of legendary entertainer Bing Crosby, a Spokane native, is said to haunt the theater named after him. But a former stage manager may roam the green room and a female ghost looks for a long-lost lover in the balcony.
5. Spokane Public Library

Spokane's original Carnegie Library now houses an architectural firm, perhaps to the dismay of the building's first head librarian.
6. Spokane Club

The haunting of the Spokane Club is linked to the 1914 disappearance of F. Lewis Clark, a Spokane socialite. Or maybe former members are protesting the club's modernized, more inclusive membership policy.
