A Fan Letter
Dear Mr. Davis,
just wanted to send a short note expressing my delight in your books. So far
Iíve only seen for dealing with the Oregon and Washington area. Do you have
plans for anymore books? As a fan of your books as well as someone interested in
haunted sites myself. I will look forward to any future works.

I wrote you a couple of months ago about a house in Welches, OR. that my friend lived as a child. I thought you were right when you wrote back saying it was the bed and breakfast, but it's a completely different place, that that Mr. Welche built from what I understand it was a toll booth for travelers on the Oregon trail. Itís an intriguing story from what little I read. We are hoping you can get more details for us.

I couldn't help but notice quite a few places which have been omitted from this site, such as Hot Lake, La Grande park and others. Please get back in touch with me if you would like any information or help on these and others. I have been doing my own investigations for a couple of years now in the Pacific Northwest.

High school of 1998 and 2001 I was dating a girl who was in the Wiccan religion.
One weekend while I was staying at her house we were laying down together watch
a movie in her brothers room he fell asleep and she was dozing off. Their
rooms were attached by a bathroom which they shared, and the door that always
closed by itself, by being off-balanced, or so I thought, so they had it propped
open by a 1 gallon glass jug they had filled to the brim with coins. I
glanced over for whatever reason and I saw the jar slide by itself across the
floor, and the bathroom door didn't just slowly shut but as if someone pushed it
and it slammed shut.
enough, I just thought to myself..."weird" and fell right asleep.
However the next day when I was the first to wake up I looked over and the
wooden door to the bathroom was still shut but the 1gallon glass jar full on
coins was right in front touching the door. I asked her mom, dad, her
brother and her if they were up at all the night before, and all of them said
no. Needless to say I was a little creeped out.

In my closet, there is this Native American type ghost, it doesnít talk out loud but I just see it there hanging on a rope. Once I saw it angry with a knife I've seen it for two years now. How do I get it to go away? I left paper in there for it to write on, I came back and it was soaking wet.. Nobody was in the house at the time. How do I get it to go away? What can I do?

About 3 yrs ago, in the middle of July, my boyfriend and I were watching TV in our old apartment. We had the doors shut to keep the bugs out and we don't have air conditioning, so it was extremely hot in our apt. All of a sudden the temperature dropped dramatically. It went from 80 degrees to the point where we had to grab a blanket. I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I looked at Jeremy and asked if he saw that. We looked over toward the window, and the strings on the blinds were swinging back and forth as if someone had just swung them, sort of like the pendulum on a clock. This went on for about a minute, then just stopped. When it stopped, the temperature returned to very warm.
But, it doesn't end there...a few nights later I was asleep in bed. Something caused me to wake up. There was a dark figure standing over me. I thought it was just Jeremy, but when I rolled over, he was sound asleep in the bed next to me. I never mentioned it to anyone until my neighbor said he was sitting on his couch about a week later, and saw a dark figure standing over his wife as she slept in their bedroom down the hall

I live in Washougal Washington. My apartment was built in 1996, and I was one of the first people that moved in. As far as I know, the property that the buildings sit on used to be duck blinds and hunting grounds a long time ago. Other than that, I don't know much more than that. The address of the apartment is on Addy ST Washougal, WA if that helps any.

Hi Jeff. I
wound up moving out of the apartment last summer, but not because of the
spookables. You asked if anything else has happened since I wrote last.
No, but the shadowy figure and the cold air are not the only strange things that
happened in the old apartment. I'd come home from work and find all of my
collectorís plates turned upside down on the walls. The only way this is
possible is to take them out of the holders and turn them around. Jeremy
and I worked the same shift at the time, so I know it wasn't him, and no one
else had a key to the place. Also, my cat was weirded out several times.
He would be running through the house, then stop dead in his tracks and start
hissing, hair standing on end. Then he would go hide out under the bed in
the spare room. I hear that animals can spirits. Is this

like to share her story
Dear Mr. Davis,
Hello my name is Summer and I have read all
of your books. I'm writing to you because I know of a few northwest stories
that I didn't know whether or not you had heard about before. Please forgive me
if you already have. Anyway, there has been a rumor running around my
school about the Fort Vancouver High School curse. I had been hearing these
rumors for years but they just popped up again so I thought I would tell you
Rumor has it that since the original building was
constructed in the 1930's or so and since then there has been many
tragedies connected to the school. Apparently the first victim of the curse was
a maintenance man the fell to his death while hanging a basketball hoop.
Since then, at least one student or staff member has died each year.
The school moved to a new building some time in
the 70's I think, but even with the move the curse still lingers. I
know it sounds a little silly but I still believe it.
Another thing I've heard is about the Jantzen
beach carousel. Apparently the ghosts of a boy and a girl in 1920's style
clothes have been seen through a door at the center of the carousel. I
personally have never seen the kids but I have heard about a fire that ravaged
the carousel in 1927. Who knows, maybe some kids were playing in the carousel
when it caught on fire. Maybe they're the ones who started it. Or maybe this is
yet another tall tale that gets eaten up by suckers like me!
I also wanted to ask you if you had heard any
stories about the Orchards Feed Mill. I haven't heard any but I did take a ghost picture
there. Itís just an orb photo, nothing special but it did surprise me so I
thought I'd ask. Scroll down to see the feed store ghosts. ; )
Anyway thank you for writing such great books.

is still missing
Well today I just got back from Fort Worth Texas where Reggy once lived, I even went to her broking down home to find her... But there was no sign of her... Just her little brother Todd, he told me Reggy Was killed so fast she doesn't know that she is dead.... He can see her too sometimes and he just acts like she is still alive. But he hasn't seen her for a year or two either.
I have known Reggy for 14 ages. She came to me one day when I was so scared and only. She promised me she would never leave my side with not telling me..... Jeff ? I don't know what to do. But I do know one thing when I came home and went to my room, it is the biggest mess I have ever seen in here. I think I might have said something to piss her off

While in the
basement of the Lafayette Schoolhouse antique mall in Oregon, I had a very
strange feeling that someone was either killed or buried there. I was
wondering if you had any information about the schoolhouse.

going? Bet you canít wait to get
yourself back to the good old Pacific N.W.!
We recently went to
Portland (the Oregon Governors Conference on Tourism) where we stayed at the
Heathman, had drinks at the Virginia Cafe, ate pizza at Old Town Pizza, and
tried to eat at Elephant Castle and pub, but it was closed down.
We thought of you often!
They are going to
bring in experts to locate the sunken ship at the mouth of Schooner Creek (the
Ghost Ship), so that is very exciting. That
will be going on in June, I think...

have tried to speak with a few people, but no one seems to be able to answer my
questions. I've been looking at
your site and decided I had nothing lose by emailing you. I am hoping you will be able to help. I have felt spirits all of my life, but I do not understand
why there are times when they are always present and other times when I
don't feel anything for months. I
have had several experiences through out my life, but the most powerful one
was in Portland OR. I was
surprised not to see the Witch's Castle on you site. Do you only deal with buildings, or do you also look at open
you know anything about, or do you believe in soul wars? Do you understand the meaning of dark and light spirits?
I have several other questions, but if this is not your area of study, I
do not wish to take your time. Thank
you for reading this letter and have a wonderful day?

SUBJECT: Greetings from Salem
DATE: 7 May 2004
I just wanted
to say that I believe that the Spaghetti Warehouse here in Salem is haunted.
This building was a brothel. At the middle of the staircase to the top
landing there is definitely an unusual energy. You can reach out with your
hand and feel it. There is a very strong feeling of sadness or remorse.
Others who are sensitive have also felt some kind of a presence. I don't
know what goes on but I think it would be worth investigating.
SUBJECT: Whatís up with you?

me Allen again. Right now, I am in
Honduras I wrote to you about my experience at the barracks.
Well I have a friend stationed here with me, we are going home this July,
and he his wife and I are looking into doing some hunts while we where on leave.
Thatís where you come in we where wondering if you had any places in
the northwest that you have not yet gone and hunted for ghost yet but wanted to.
This is where we come in we want to investigate them for you if you don't mind. I know that one of his in-laws that live in Salem Oregon does hunting but not sure what her name is so I told them that I would contact you to see if you had any places you wanted checked out and we would be more than happy to do that for you. Besides I think it will be more fun than sitting at home watching TV.
you do let me know and I will give you the info on when we will be back in the
northwest. Also, Honduras where I
am stationed at has a lot of paranormal activity.
My friend took some pics at Copan Mayan ruins and you see nothing but
orbs all around and not just one several. Just
last weekend when I was at a Hondurans house with a friend we saw a door knob
turn and open and closed all by itself also some other doors opening by
themselves. But we did not ask our
host about it cause those people there take religion way too serious if you ask
me and thought that they might take offense to that.
Well I got to go so write back please and let me know if you can hook us
up with some hunts this July. Here
are my email addies to contact me. I
also have some pics I took in Ashland that I want to mail you and you tell me
what you think about them and caused them if you don't mind later.
