Haunted Trolley 2017

JACKSONVILLE, OR — What lurks behind the lace curtains and wooden shutters of Jacksonville’s historic homes? 

The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s Haunted Trolley takes a light-hearted approach to local “hauntings” and feature multiple sites with special effects and period character interpreters. Although we try to stay away from gory stuff, parents are asked to exercise their own judgment regarding a child’s participation in regards to tales of death and dismemberment.

 Tours last approximately 30 minutes and will be transported by Jacksonville’s trolley and two trolleys from Allaboard Trolley.  The 3 trolleys are similar in construction and have similar exposure to the elements.  So please dress for the weather.

2017 Dates are:

  • October 19,20 & 21 & 26, 27 & 28
  • Tours will run from 6:30 – 10:00 pm. departing every 15 minutes
  • Tickets are $10   
    • Purchase online:  
    • Purchase In Person:
      • Only 7:00 8:00 and 9:00 tours will be sold at the Jacksonville Visitors Center to accommodate people wishing to purchase in person – cash, check or credit card. The Visitors Center is open Daily 10 am – 3 pm.

This event has sold out in the past years so plan on purchasing your tickets in advance.  We are adding a 3rd trolley and 2 additional nights for a total of 6 nights of tours this year.  We hope to provide increased participation opportunity for those who have missed out in the past.  Our Jacksonville Trolley will be joined by two trolleys from Allaboard Trolley.

Want to volunteer to be a spirit or help run special effects?  Email:  ExecutiveDirector@JacksonvilleOreong.org with your name and contact information and what you are interested doing.  We have a whole selection of ghostly characters to fill.  You just need to be available from 6 – 10:30 pm on the nights of the tours.
Tours will depart from the Jacksonville Visitor Information Center at the corner of West C and North Oregon.  Parking is available in lots off of D Street.

 

“We think the Haunted Trolley Tours are a great way to showcase our town and have a fun evening in Jacksonville”, says Tim Balfour, Executive Director of the Jacksonville Chamber.  The tours are also a fundraiser for the Chamber, with proceeds going towards expanding visitor services including supporting our trolley and promoting the many attractions that Jacksonville has to offer year round.”
