Haunted History Walking Tours – Oct. 13 & 14
Take a peek behind the pleasant facade projected by Jacksonville’s well-preserved homes and businesses to our gruesome past. Docents will tell you the sad stories behind many of our lovely buildings.
These tours are not your typical ‘ghost tours’ with special effects. They are history tours about real hauntings resulting from past events. The stories—some scary, some benign—come from multiple sources, from people who have experienced these lingering spirits. They are our attempt to recognize and honor these restless souls.
Two different tour routes are being offered—a Britt Hill tour with saloons, Oregon’s first Chinatown, and two of the most haunted houses in town; and a Courthouse route with tales of brothels, epidemics and hangings.
Tours begin at 7pm, 7:15pm, 7:30pm, and 7:45pm on the first Friday of each month through September. October tours begin at 6pm, 6:15pm, 6:30pm, 6:45pm and 7pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings on the second weekend in October.
October 13 – “Britt Hill” (some uphill grades)
October 14 – “Courthouse & Jail”
