2008 Ghost Stories
In recent weeks it has come to my attention that certain parties are using my ghost stories and those of my contributors as references for their own commercial enterprises. If you or someone you know is writing a book on ghosts in the Pacific Northwest, PLEASE DO NOT!!! copy or use the following stories or any other materials within this website as references.

SUBJECT: Bruce Lee Photo
Just like to tell you that, is not him. Both clothing and size doesn't look like him. Face profile looks only slightly similar and that's not the clothing he was buried with.
Yes, BL fan here. Could be any other person there, live or dead just wondering around.
post your email in a few days on my website.
Don't worry about it, what I meant to say is that spirits can walk around graveyards so, if that's one on the photo is not BL mainly because they usually appear with the clothes he/she was buried with and BL was buried with a white shirt as in 'Enter the Dragon". Another thing is that here has never been reports of a BL ghost, except one that is said not to be believable because of the source (it involve some kid that said BL appeared to him and told him the name of the person responsible for his death).

SUBJECT: Question for you
I don't know if you are still tracking haunted places in Portland, but my friend has a ghost/presence in his house and we were wondering if you knew anyone who could verify this somehow. Like a psychic or someone like that who could tell us a little more than what we seem to be sensing.
I have posted Susan's questions a
little late now, but I hope that other people will have some suggestions on how
to tell if a house is haunted, and I will pass them on to her.

SUBJECT: Ghost Sightings
Hi, I have a comment about the Harmony House Restaurant in Clackamas, OR. I worked there when I was in high school, and a lot of the people that worked there with me had experiences with the ghosts that inhabit the upstairs. My aunt still works there, and she has had a few run-ins too. If/when anyone goes in there to check the place out, make sure you ask them if you can go see the upstairs. That is where all the sightings took place. Also, ask the people that work there about the history- it’s very spooky!

SUBJECT: The Photos We Discussed
The message below was from EJ, who I met at NORWESCON, where I was selling books. Jeff Davis
These about some of the photos we discussed in the hall at 2 PM today. The Thornwood castle photos were taken with a disposable Kodak type. Four of the photos were taken outside under cloudy skies. It had just stopped raining.
There is an added photo taken over in Iraq. It was sent to me about a year ago from a friend who was serving over there.
The photo of the doorway upper area I still do not know what to say about. The photo of the lion does not have a camera strap in front of it. There was nothing there when I took it; it just showed up.
Hope you like the photos.

SUBJECT: Your website… a question
Hi, my name is Rich Lyons. I run CGP (Columbia Gorge
Paranormal), a paranormal investigation group out of White Salmon, Washington in
the Columbia Gorge. We haven't been around long, but are a very serious and
scientific in our approach (I also teach Physics and other sciences in a public
school.). I recently found your website "ghostsandcritters.com" and
seen your book titles. I was wondering, where you are based out of? Do you have
any good locations (especially in the Columbia Gorge area) that need a very
thorough scientific investigation? We have done several local investigations
already and have got some interesting data! If you want, check out our new
website at www.columbiagorgeparanormal.com to read about us. The site has only
been up a couple of weeks, and our team has got a few new members recently, soe
we are starting the group from scratch. I am the founder and lead investigator.
Before moving to the Gorge in the late 90's, I was a member of Alabama
Paranormal out of Birmingham Alabama . I hope to hear from you, as you seem to
be much more familiar with "local haunts" (pun intended!).
The address is www.columbiagorgeparanormal.com. I can't wait to see the link on your site, my team was excited to hear you would do that. Well, this month we have investigations going on at Wind River Cellars Winery and a couple of private homes. We are hoping to schedule the Hot Springs soon. I'll keep in touch as we discover new places. Let us know if you hear of any new hot spots in the Gorge area.

SUBJECT: Haunted Oxford Saloon
My name is Bo and I'm one of the new owners of The Oxford Saloon and Eatery in Snohomish, WA. I'd like to use your quote about our establishment on our new website I'm currently building. Would it be possible to do that? I could even create a link to your site if you wish.
Thank you for your time and have a great day!
the past the owners of the Oxford Saloon have been ghost hunter friendly, and it
appears that Bo will keep up that tradition!!!

SUBJECT: Forwarded haunt in Spokane, WA
Story: Here in Spokane there is an apartment complex known as "The Ridge." It is located in the beautiful and historic Browne's Addition area. What is interesting is that when they broke ground on the complex they found bodies. Several bodies. As it turns out, the original mayor wanted to develop the area, which at that time was the location of the city's first cemetery, and no one wanted to live next to a cemetery.
Being Mayor, the solution was simple, he passed an ordinance that all cemeteries had to be moved outside city limits. Presumably, the bodies had been moved to Fairmont and Greenwood cemeteries, but in truth, it was just headstones.
This is all 100% true, and verifiable.

SUBJECT: The Grant House Ghost – Vancouver, WA
Although Grant never actually lived there, Sully remains. Many years ago, I visited the Grant house with my mother. No one was there but a curator seated inside the front door. He said we could tour through the building on our own.
The first floor was fine. The second floor felt a little creepy. As we went up the narrow stairs to the top floor, we were both overcome with anxiety... as if we were expecting someone to pop out and say "Boo!". We only stayed in that top floor room for a few seconds before running back down the stairs, past the curator and out to our car.
We both looked up to see a man in the window of the top
floor! Several years later, I heard
that the house was really haunted and it wasn't our imaginations playing tricks
on us. The top floor is boarded up, now. I wonder why.

SUBJECT: Lenore's Ghost
I saw the post on your web site http://www.ghostsandcritters.com/February%2003.html
I’ve been to Lenore’s Ghost and it is a pretty active place supernaturally – and preternaturally - speaking. They also book some great acoustic music – John Gorka and that caliber. Most of the town of Independence is pretty active and it probably would serve you to settle in there for a weekend with the right kind of equipment. The folks at Lenore’s will talk about the ghost there if you approach them gently – and not in the middle of a rush period.
Spectrally there does appear to be what I would define as personality fragments, as well as possible riocht or Coimimeadh activity. This leads me to the following hypotheses:
I’m not a particularly strong taibhsear, my sister got most of that, but from a scientific approach I’m thinking EMF rather than thermal is the way to go. Night-vision cameras with the right kind of shutter-speeds *might* give you something as far a motion or movement, but if I am correct about the origins of the phenomena (I could be wrong too) I don’t think you’ll get much of a thermal paint *unless* it’s sith.
I would suggest following
Kathleen's advice. If you go to to Lenore's Ghost, don't try asking too
many questions when they're busy, and initially take no for an answer, then come
back when they aren't too busy.

Haunted House in Lewis County, WA
Have you ever heard of a haunted house in Lewis County, Washington?
My father was born in Ethel, WA (one near Salkum since there are two Ethel's in Washington) in 1903. (Both his paternal and maternal grandparents had settled in Lewis Co., WA around 1880.) He used to tell us kids (4) of a house that he and his (several) cousins (Wright's and Gore's) once entered. The house was old, big, and vacant. The kids had ridden horseback to the house (best mode of travel then). While they were in the house they heard noises like someone was walking around upstairs. The kids started upstairs to check it out and just then some balls came rolling down the stairs. The cousins had planned on spending the night but they left in a hurry.
I don't know who
owned this house or where exactly it was located in or around Ethel/Salkum area.

Ghost Hunting techniques
have been interested in the paranormal for several years. I have had my
with the "Hauntings" and have done some post investigative work to
find histories of or maybe names of possible ghosts. Being from Kansas
originally and have had most of my experiences there. I have investigated
the Eldridge House in Lawrence as well as several private homes that were
directly involved with William Quantrill’s Raid on Lawrence Kansas. I
have also done some work in Ft Riley and in the old Detention Barracks at FT.
Leavenworth. My way of investigating is to disprove hauntings (I have
adopted the TAPS method). It seems to work better and helps to keep a
level head when things start happening. I have recently relocated to the
Tacoma Area and have investigated some things there on mere "urban
am a serious and professional investigator and would like some help in
continuing my hobby. Any help you can give me would be great. Thanks
and keep up the great web page Bret M.

Lithia Park Ghosts
am a prominent ghost-believe as you will that resides in Ashland Oregon. I
know of most of the stories you have listed on your site (and a great deal more)
but was mostly interested when I noticed a new page on your site that mentioned
the history of Lithia Park...I was wondering what your sources on Lithia park
were and if there was any way you could direct me toward these sources.

my name is Anita S. I live on Whidbey Island in Washington. I
found your website through Google. While
I don't have a ghost story for Fort Casey… yet.
I have experienced quite a few weird things in my life. But why I emailed
you was… have you ever thought about coming to Whidbey Island for
son worked for Camp Casey for awhile. There
are quite a few barracks… homes… gun embattlements… etc. at Casey… and
we had his rehearsal dinner there at the barracks.
liked that particular place… not sure why. Might
be worth the time to investigate.

Remember the movie, “The Entity”?
Well, the Entity now lives near me, in Federal Way: Two women report ghost has been having sex with them
At 4:02 p.m. April 10, two women went into the Federal Way police station
claiming that over the past two years, a paranormal person has been placing
sensors on their bodies and visiting them in their house at 28600 block of 25th
Place South. They said that the
ghost has been having sexual intercourse with them. One woman said that these
incidents started in Kent and continued when she moved here. The
other woman said that this just started now.
is it for this incident in the police blotter. I may just have to try
tracking these women down. "Relax, ladies, that was no ghost, that
was me in my Cloak of Invisibility!"
