Vancouver USA Ghosts Volume I

Vancouver, Washington, known to some as Vancouver USA is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest.  Founded as the Hudson's Bay post of Fort Vancouver in the 1820s, a small town quickly grew up around it.  In the 1840s, American settlers began arriving, and in 1849, the U.S. Army came,  establishing the Vancouver Barracks.  Although the army left in 2011, many of its old soldiers remain, and have not faded away.  

There are many stories from the Vancouver Barracks, such as the ghostly sentry who haunts the Parade Ground.  There is General Alfred Sully, and the many other resident ghosts at the Ulysses S. Grant House.  There are also the spirits along Officers Row, such as the ghostly nanny of Windemere Realty, mentioned in Haunted History: Northwest, and the other buildings, such as the Post Hospital, built in the early 1900s.

There are many stories from downtown Vancouver's historic core, including the buildings lining Main Street, Esther Short Park, and several of downtown's historic homes.  Stories include the Slocum House Theater, visited by the TV show, The Dead Files. There are also several stories of haunted houses, where the author hid the location, to protect current tenants.  

This book retails for $12.95, and has 124 pages, with over a dozen illustrations. Some of the locations in this book are mentioned in Jeff Davis' earlier books.  However, he has updated the original stories, to include recent hauntings, as well as newly discovered historic facts.  There are many locations that will be new to readers of Jeff's previous books.

This book includes haunted locales which range from hotels, to bed & breakfasts, to restaurants, to museums . In my other books, I only discussed Washington and Oregon. Here, I include haunted places in British Columbia.

It is divided by geographic sections: The first section begins with the southern end of the coast. The listing continues northward through Washington. The next section is southern British Columbia. The guide then moves south, into the Puget Sound. It continues south through the Portland Basin and Willamette Valley, then east through the Columbia River Gorge and eastern Washington and Oregon.

There are nearly 200 locales in this book. They are generally listed in alphabetical order. In the case of cities with several hauntings, such as Seattle, the haunts are divided into sections: Places to Stay; Restaurants, Clubs and Theaters; and Shops, Sights and Sounds.

Jeff Davis wrote this 96 page book in celebration of the Third Annual Pacific Northwest Ghosthunters Conference in Astoria, Oregon, in November 2006. Jeff gathered stories on the Astoria area from his previous books, but also visited Astoria several times, finding new stories of haunted locales.

There are tales of ghostly sailors, still lingering in their old homes, like Captain George Flavel. Then there is Fort Stevens, where old soldiers have still not faded away. At the Liberty theater, perhaps some of the stage ghosts are still active. Astoria burned to the ground not once, but twice, and perhaps a firefighter or two remains watchful at the Uppertown Firehouse Museum. There are strange sea critters, haunted hotels, B&Bís and restaurants, as well as a ghostly lady at Knappton Cove.

In addition to his own experiences, Jeff worked with the Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle Tacoma; AGHOST for insight on many of the more spectacular hauntings. These include the Officerís Inn B&B, the Rosebriar Inn, and the Liberty Theater.
