The Old Town Historic District in downtown Portland, Oregon is filled with beautiful old buildings and cobblestone streets. Lively with drinking establishments and restaurants today, 120 years ago Old Town was home to many of Portland’s less savory episodes – some would even go so far as to say “wicked and lawless.” We, of course, think it’s the perfect stage for our Haunted Pub Tour!
Join us year-round for this spine-tingling walking tour and hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters. In addition to (alleged) ghosts, your tour guide will regale you with stories from Portland’s early days when Old Town was home to drug trades, gambling, and prostitution. You’ll learn about the notorious “crimps,” whose rampant kidnapping tactics earned Portland the dubious distinction of being known as the most dangerous port city of the western hemisphere in the 1890s.
The Haunted Pub Tour is roughly 2.5 hours including stops at 3 local pubs and 7 beer samples. The walking portion of the tour covers less than 1 mile and is all above-ground.
Tour operates all year round. Note special dates and times during peak months and holidays.
