Haunted Trolley Tours – October 21-22 & 28-29, 2016

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

The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s Haunted Trolley Tours will introduce you to some of the spirits that inhabit familiar Jacksonville structures and share their stories with you.  Hear about the pioneer who helped settle Jacksonville and still keeps on eye on his homestead and the séance that went horribly wrong. Tours are Friday, October 21, Saturday, October 22 and also on Friday, October 28 & Saturday, October 29, and depart every 20 minutes between 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

Tickets will be on sale in September.  Advance purchase is recommended as this event sold out last year.  Tickets can be purchased at Jacksonville Visitors Center.  You can reserve  seats by calling 541-899-8118 and then mail your your payment or stop by our office during business hours – 10 am – 3 pm to  make payment and collect your tickets.  Subject to space availability they may also be purchased immediately prior to tour time.  Parents are asked to exercise their own judgment regarding a child’s participation.  

These 30 minute tours feature twelve sites and include additional anecdotes taken from historic annals and local legend.  Tours will depart from the Jacksonville Visitors Center at the corner of West C and North Oregon.  Parking is available in lots off of D Street.  A second trolley has been added for this year’s tour to accommodate more guests.  Guests can choose between Jacksonville’s open-air trolley, or the climate controlled Jubilee Trolley.

“We think the Haunted Trolley Tours are a great way to showcase an unexplored aspect of Jacksonville history and to have some seasonal fun,” 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 and promoting the many attractions that Jacksonville has to offer year round.”
