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.

My wife and I live in
Stevenson Washington and last year she came into town after Thanksgiving to do
some shopping. I'm a Portland Police Officer that works nights which as you can
imagine makes life difficult. My wife finished her shopping, but because or
weather had to stay in town because she couldn't make it back up the gorge. When
I goy off work it was the end of my work week so I suggested we stay another
night in town and finish some Christmas shopping. She stayed the night before at
McMenamins Edgefield and I suggested we stay another night because of the
weather. We moved to a room on the top floor which was much larger than the one
she originally stayed in.
While she was shopping I
took a nap and woke up and started reading the paper. While I was reading the
paper I heard distinct footsteps in the room, I looked up from the newspaper and
the footsteps suddenly stopped. I started reading the paper again and the
footsteps started again. I looked up expecting to see someone and again the
footsteps stopped. I have been a police officer for 17 years and had no doubt
that the footsteps were coming from inside the room.
Later that night when we
went to bed I was woken again be the sound of footsteps inside our room. I
didn't wake my wife but as soon as sat up the footsteps stopped. We were on the
top floor and the sound was not coming from an adjacent room, I know for certain
that the sound was coming from inside my room. I laid back down and the
footsteps continued until I again sat back up. The next morning while we
were in the gift shop I mentioned my experience to an employee and was told that
they have had similar complaints from the room where we were staying. I'm not
sure what disturbed me more, the footsteps in my room, or that staff acted like
it was just another day at Edgefield! Either way I found it a very interesting,
and disturbing experience!

A few weeks later I took a
picture of my 15 year old son from my cell phone camera. I text it to my sister
and she text me back asking "who is standing behind Brandon"? I told
her "No one, why"? Then I looked even closer, I can swear I see a
faint picture of a face of a lady in the 40's or 50's. The house was built in
1930's. We cannot find any history on our home. But would love to.
gods gift to us, so please help protect them and just love them always.
