Haunted history tours offered in Jacksonville

Historic Jacksonville Inc. will hold its Haunted History walking tours Friday, Aug. 12.

Costumed docents will share stories of woe, sorrow and regret, along with tales about the spirits who still linger in Jacksonville’s historical buildings.

These are not your typical ghost tours with special effects. They are history tours about real hauntings resulting from past events. The stories come from folks who have actually experienced these lingering spirits.

Tours leave from the Jacksonville Visitors Center at the corner of North Oregon and C streets and last about 1 hour. Guests can choose from two different tours offered twice each night.

The 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Courthouse route features brothels, epidemics and hangings.

The 7:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Britt Hill tours highlight arson, saloons and Oregon’s oldest Chinatown. And both tours have lots of haunted houses.

Tours cost $10 per person, and reservations are required. Tickets are available at historicjacksonville.org/haunted-history-tours/.

Additional information is available at historicjacksonville.org, by calling 541-245-3650 or emailing info@historicjacksonville.org.
