Event description
Experience Portland's paranormal heritage as we investigate several local ghost stories gathered from homeowners, alienists, and newspapers.

About this event

Tanya Lyn March, ghost historian and tour guide, has gathered several ghost narratives from homeowners, alienists, ephemera collectors and ancient newspapers.  Prepare to walk the streets as dusk settles for a kaleidoscope view of numerous Northwest Portland locations in search of the unexplainable.  Learn about the ghost of Agnes Reid's son hot dead by neighborhood bullies, little Ernest Harp's poltergeist playmate, the reunited mother and son, and the lady over the bar.  The tour stops at three locations where the spirits are known to be less than peaceful.  Invite your friends, specters, spooks, supernatural manifestations and apparitions.  

Cost $25 per guest

Ghosts with Death Certificate are Free

Restrooms are hard to find so plan ahead.
