About this title:

Synopsis:

Spectral sights from the creepy coast!

Whether you’re strolling around Portland or are an armchair visitor, this guide will bring you all the thrills and chills of one of the most haunted cities in the country. Steeped in history, the Oregon coast has been the site of eerie events over the centuries. Relive early Portland at Tryon Creek State Park, where the ghostly voices of loggers and the whinnying of horses can still be heard. Spirits linger in Prohibition-era Shanghai Tunnels, where prostitutes and immigrants were bought and sold. The Gray Lady still tends to the windswept Heceta Head Lighthouse, watching over her infant’s grave. Author Jeff Dwyer explores these lingering phantasms and others in this sepulchral volume of history and mystery.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive guide to the haunts and history of Portland and the surrounding areas explores more than ninety spectral sites. From the haunted Heathman Hotel to the restless souls of the Lone Fir Cemetery, from the wailing spirits trapped in the Shanghai Tunnels to the mournful Grey Lady of the Heceta Head Lighthouse, the storied past of the Oregon Coast can still be experienced. Relive the region’s days as a series of frontier towns through the Gold Rush, wars, and modern times. This companion to publicly accessible sites includes ghost-hunting instructions and tips, as well as helpful checklists for getting the most out of your next supernatural encounter.

Jeff Dwyer, an expert ghost hunter, has been fascinated by local history and ghost lore since boyhood. A much-sought-after paranormal investigator, Dwyer makes appearances on the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures and is a regular guest on local and national radio and television programs. He is the author of Ghost Hunter’s Guide to California’s Gold Rush Country, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to California’s Wine Country, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Los Angeles, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Monterey and California’s Central Coast, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to New Orleans, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Seattle and Puget Sound, and Ghost Hunter’s Guide to the San Francisco Bay Area: Revised Edition. He lives in Fairfield, California.

Book Description Pelican Publishing Co, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ghosts and spirits abound in western Oregon. The imprints of pioneers, soldiers, prostitutes, and murder victims haunt the places they trod in life, searching for loved ones, reliving joyful times, protecting favorite haunts, and seeking revenge. This guide, history, and comprehensive how-to offers tantalizing information about the lives, deaths, and locales of the Portland areas lingering past. Areas include Central Portland, East Portland communities, Vancouver and North Portland, communities south of Portland, and Oregons coastal communities. The infamous Shanghai Tunnels have long reverberated with the screams of kidnapped victims, doomed to a brief life of forced servitude. Lone Fir Cemetery is visited to this day by the spirits of the Chinese laborers, mental asylum inmates, and Civil War veterans who rest there. Thelma Taylor can sometimes be felt in Cathedral Park, under the St. John Bridge. Historical hotels still host the spirits of guests who died, sometimes by their own hand. Opera houses and ballrooms tell a happier story: the imprints left by decades of entertainment and energy can be felt even now. These sites, and many others, are vividly described, and entries include locations and contact information. Informative sections cover what a ghost is, how it can manifest, ideal ghost sighting conditions, and types of imprints. Techniques included are preliminary historical research, physical and mental preparation, and the two primary schools of ghost hunting: the technical and psychic methods. The technical method section covers equipment use and suggestions, and the psychic method section discusses using your intuition and sensitivity to sense phenomena. Helpful appendixes include a sighting report form; suggested readings, videos, and websites; a list of tours and events; and a collection of area museums and historical societies.
