2010 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.

FROM Mike W
I once worked for the 104Th Training Group as a
full time AST. For about 4 years I worked in one of the old buildings, next to
the 104Th Div HQ building. We had an active duty SFC that was assigned to my
unit to handle training. The SFC related that one night, while he was working
late, he had a bag of empty alum. coke cans. Suddenly they began bouncing and
jostling against each other, like pop corn. They then began to "pop"
out of the bag. Getting unnerved by this he threw the bag under his desk and
Another man, working for a marksmanship unit
that shared our building said he saw a face in the glass of a door when he went
to leave. On another occasion he came face-to-face with a full body apparition
in a dark blue uniform with brass button. The apparition didn't seem to take
note of the man and walked calmly up stares whereupon it vanished.
As for myself I had often heard heavy foot
steps (like someone wearing boots) on numerous occasions when I knew the
building to be empty. Also I often had an uneasy feeling in the basement, like
someone was watching.

Sprits, ghost, and help?
Dear Jeff Davis,
I am an Oregon native. I have always “heard” spirits as far back as I can remember. I am getting older and have been experiencing more and more of a negative spirit. I live out on a piece of farm land with my mother, I am 41 years young and no, I am not crazy, just trying to seek advice or help of any kind.
At night when I go to bed, I have to have my closet door open, if not…it sounds that someone is on the other side trying to come through the walls. My door handle on my bedroom door will turn slightly as if someone is trying to come in. At times I feel very drained, so when I lay down and try to rest, it feels like a very heavy person is holding my body down, I will try to move and I am unable to. I have never experienced the sightings of spirits before but about a week ago I was in my bathroom and saw a face appear in the doorway, no body attached. It feels as if someone is watching me 24 hours a day when I am at home, at times my dog will even pick up on this spirit. I found out the spirits are attracted to water, I live pretty close to the river that separates Oregon from Washington. I did not know this fact until about a week ago, so I have heard voices and I feel the feelings that spirits are trying to show me about themselves, but this is either a very angry spirit or a demon.
If you could please, please offer some advice or help me in any way?

Interesting photo. I think that the background is blurry
because of motion from the camera holder. It was probably taken over a
relatively long time, perhaps 1/4 of a second or longer. The slow shutter
speed also accounts for the glowing effect of the ceiling lights above you.
I suspect that the camera either used a flash, or you were standing inside of a
patch of light. While behind you, it was pretty dark. So in order to
get the background looking normal, you were over exposed. Usually this is
reversed, where it is bright behind someone, and they are shadowed.
What do you think?

Over exposure is a
thought. Digital cameras can over expose? This is where I am weak in my
understanding, kinda with physics/technology in general. There were three
pictures taken within seconds of each other with this one in the middle if I am
not mistaken. I doubt he adjusted anything unless it happened by accident. I see
now that part of my glasses on top of my head is streaked with this
"light" making me think that whatever it is it is reflective. I dunno,
just seems odd that the other photo didn't look like this. Have you ever seen
anything like this? Of course for me, with a lack of understanding on how camera
work, I would tend to go into thinking some sort of energy was captured but
since I don't like to jump to conclusion (or look like a fool) I like to explore
In the summer of 2010 I post a request on my website, looking for public locations that migh be useful for people trying to film a television show on the paranormal in the Northwest. Lisa A. contributed this thought.

Knight Hall in Forest Grove
It has to
be Vera of Knight Hall in Forest Grove Jeff!
PLEASE contact the woman on this email and read the article she did last year
(attached). There is even reported poltergeist activity. Didn't
you know that just about everyone in Forest Grove has a haunted house, silly?
I know which TV show you're referring to, and you KNOW I'm SOOOOOO up for this!
This is SO
Twilight Zone - Holly and I have been talking just recently about
contacting you with a proposal for the three of us to collaborate on a book
on Forest Grove's haunts. I bet your ears were burning! But first,
the TV show . . .
Forest Grove book is doing great - it just came out last Monday! http://www.historicforestgrove.org/fhfg_news.html And
thank you for the copy of Weird Oregon - it sits in a place of honor on my
coffee table along with your other books (as opposed to the
not-so-honorable rack in my bathroom LOL)
Unfortunately, the television show picked a different location.
Want to share a story?
