A Haunted Tour Guide 

to the

 Pacific Northwest


     I have been writing books on ghosts and legends of the Pacific Northwest for several years.  I make a point to get comments from fans about what they want to see in the next book. Many have had similar comments. They like to visit haunted places, and it would be great if they could get more visitor information in a single volume, rather than having to carry several books with them. So here it is.

     This book lists many of the haunted public places that I have heard of in the last ten years. The haunted locales range from hotels, to bed & breakfasts, to restaurants, to museums and even beauty parlors. In my other books, I only discussed Washington and Oregon. Here, I include haunted places in British Columbia and Idaho for one special haunt.

     This book is divided by geographic sections: The first section begins with the southern end of the Northwest 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. Within these sections, I have separated the haunts by city, and by type of haunt: lodging, restaurants and clubs, and sights.

     I tried to ensure that all of these places are open to the public.  Some places may be familiar, since I describe them in my other books. Some are not. There are nearly 200 locales in this book. More than half of them have not been described by me before. 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.

  Each listing includes information such as addresses, phone number, websites, hours, etc.  I also added a brief entry describing the history and haunting.  I kept entries brief to fit all of these places into one compact book. If you want longer stories, you can find them in my other books (blatant plug). I have added maps or directions to many locations, but not all. Please contact the places you want to visit in advance for updates or alternate directions.

     The Spouting Horn restaurant is located on the shores of Depoe Bay. The restaurant was originally a hotel and has two stories, with dining rooms on each floor. Across Hwy 101 is the Devil’s Churn and spouting horn. The Devil’s Churn is a hundred foot deep hole in the coastal rock. At high tide, the water rushes through the chasm and is forced out into the air. The spouting horn of sea water rises up to 40 feet in the air.

     Betty Tauton and her husband Vaughn moved to Depoe Bay and bought the Spouting Horn in 1951. The building was built sometime in the 1930s and used as a boarding house and was the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters in World War II. Though Vaughn has passed on, Betty and her family still run the restaurant. She is an accomplished chef, having studied cooking in Portland as well as France. She attended cooking schools in Provence (near Nice) and the other school was in Perigord. Her baking skills have earned her pies local fame.

The Ghosts

     The Tauton family call their ghost Ralph and have become comfortable with his practical jokes. When Betty and her family were converting the old hotel into the Spouting Horn they had to remodel the upper floor. While they were doing this, one person was pelted with an old nail. People have heard disembodied footsteps and dishes and pans in the kitchen fall with a clatter. On the second floor there is a quiet back lounge. The bartender and others have reported seeing a ghostly man walking across the hallways. In 2001, psychics and paranormal investigators detected a strong male presence in the hallway leading from the second floor dining room to the back bar. On a tape recorder they captured a voice saying, “I’m not goin’ in there!”. This was mocking the psychic, who refused to walk through the hallway.
