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.
Jefferson Davis (25 April 2003)
In the last few years, many people have become interested in the paranormal. Their interests range from taking on the role of dedicated ghost hunters, to recreational ghost hunting. The latter usually takes the form or planning vacations around haunted locales, such as hotels and restaurants, and going on ghost walks. Because I have written on ghostly tourism, I receive emails from many people about where the ghost tours are, and how good are they? It is sometimes difficult for me to keep track of this growing industry, so I am asking for reader's help.
Below I have links to different ghost walks. Click on the link and it will take you to pages with more information on each walk. These descriptions are from the organizations who put the walks on. I do not necessarily endorse the walk, or what the description says. This information and the graphics used as icons are the property of the tour owners.
I hope that readers will contact me and add comments after they take the various walks. When you comment, try and be precise and to the point. Please do not use profanity, or I cannot post your emails. Please suggest other walks that I can add to this section.
