Looking For Something To Do On A Sunday?
Howdy, y'all. No plans on Sunday night except for staring at the wall while experiencing soul crushing boredom?
Well I just wanted to stop by and let everyone know about a dark wave/industrial/gothic-blues night of music at The Pub At The End Of The Universe tomorrow the 26th.

Not only will it be a great night of music, friends and drinks, it could also be a grand opportunity for you other artists and musicians to get out and network with some like-minded individuals.
Show's going to start around 8:00PM.
Hope to see you all out.

Does anyone know anything about the witch of the pioneer cemetery in lafayette, oregon?

We went and for some reason I had the feeling it was staged... any ideas?

2006 Rose City Paranormal Conference
Long time no see everyone.

We are starting to think about the conference again, and I would like to use this as a suggestion box.

What kind of things would you like to see there?

Which authors or topics interest you?

If you attended last year, what worked and what didn't?

Do you know of any local buisnesses that would be a good addition to the conference?

Hey all... hopefully most of you are members of the portland ghost tracking meetup, and should have received the email I sent out tonight... but for those of you who aren't... please join us at http://ghosts.meetup.com/12 !!

I think the meetup is a fabulous way for all of our groups (and solo people too!) in the portland area to get together and share ideas/experiences, etc... but attendance is sparse (usually around 10% or less... we've got 125 members and very rarely more than a dozen attendees), and frankly its just getting kind of blah. I'm really looking for some brainstorming on ways we can make the meetups better in various ways.

I'd love it if you'd stop by the meetup site and share your opinion and ideas... I started a thread on the message board, and would be very excited to get some responses from people... I enjoy being the organizer, but really I'm just there to be the mediator/facilitator/bill payer... I would love for the group to really roll on forward of its own accord, and for members to really start getting involved in planning the events, rather than feeling as if I'm just dragging it along as seems to be the case currently.

So... please... join, share, show up and have fun!!!

Sigh, got my car broken into while I was in Seattle on Tuesday night, and one of my ghosthunting bags got snagged (it usually lives in the trunk, but I blew a tire on Monday, and had moved it so I could get the spare and jack out... and was a slacker about putting the stuff back away). I lucked out, though... I had slid my equipment case under the seat so they missed the good stuff.... but they got my bag that had my binders & forms, blank cassette tapes, lens cleaners, flashlights & first aid kit.... and that can of police issue pepper spray I like to carry when prowling cemeteries at night. Bah, what a week. It was fun putting the kit together the first time... this time its just going to be annoying!!

Greetings all!

Just ran across this group... so glad to see everyone here!

My name is Jennifer, and I'm with Phantom Seekers, and am also the organizer for the Portland Ghost Tracking Meetup. (Thanks, by the way, to whomever posted the link for the meetup group on the info page for this community!)

Nothing new lately, I'm afraid... I've got several inquiries lined up, but my work schedule has been somewhat prohibitive, especially since I burned up most of the vacation time I had left taking time off for the conference and several other events and projects in October. Hoping to get a little more with it in the new year.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

Have you ever noticed that most "Haunted Places In Portland" lists are just copied from each other?
For instance, look at the misspelling of McMenamin on these websites, (as well as the matching descriptions).... this can get a little monotonous for the Portland ghost Seeker:

So I would like to make our *own* list with descriptions, alleged hauntings, reports from the field, etc.

I will begin with Witches (or Witch's) Castle, Forest Park.

Admin Post
Sorry it's taken so long to get this post out, and I'll make it brief.

Ownership of the community has been passed over to, don't worry I'm pretty laid back. I've also added haplesschyld as a moderator.

I'm going to be looking at ways to make this community more active, and maybe even a bit more broad as it comes to the paranormal not only in Portland but over all. If anyone has any suggestions for this community feel free to comment here and let me know!

Just a bit about me:

My name is Timm Higgins, I'm the VP for WCPI (West Coast Paranormal Investigations). The groups website is linked in the user info if you care to take a look. I've been interested in the paranormal for as long as I can remember, but didn't really get into until after I had my first experiance several years ago.

Anyways I dont' forsee any rules changing. Just common sense should be used. You know, if it's a long post or a picture post please use an LJ Cut. No foul language and the like. Other than that post away!

Have you or anyone you know ever had any ghostly experiences? Care to share?

The last place I worked was an old building in Old Town. I was hired as the night baker and I was to work alone. The woman who I replaced had been there 14 years, and as I could sense that the place was haunted, I asked her about it.

She said it was, and she called the ghost Charlie. Charlie was more mischievous than meddlesome, and at times was even helpful. She would catch glimpses of him and hear noises and have things move on her, but she said she was not scared and found herself even talking to him during the nights that she worked.

I am much more easily spooked. I also heard noises and had tools move on me. I saw movement out of the corner of my eye, and always felt like I was being watched. But, mostly I just felt a strong presence. I would love to go in there with equipment and capture evidence of his existence.

My experiences living in a haunted flat in Boulder, Colorado were much more obvious.

Portland - from: the shadowlands

Cathedral Park - In the summer of 1949, 15 year-old Thelma Taylor was murdered under the St. Johns Bridge, also known as Cathedral Park. In the present day, disembodied screams can be heard late at night during the summer, and the police have been dispatched numerous times to the area without finding any evidence of foul play.

Buttertoes Restaurant - this ghost, "Lydia", has been seen by numerous people.

Columbian Cemetery - former Love Cemetery and Columbia Cemetery- this ghost, "Lydia", has been seen by numerous people.

ComedySportz - ComedySportz is haunted by an unknown female entity. When the building is nearly empty, employees and performers have heard a woman talking or laughing-sometimes quite loudly- in the back room where costumes and equipment is stored. The ladies room toilet has also had problems and flushed endlessly with no explanation. Employees have also seen lights in parts of the building, only to go back to turn them off and discover that no lights were on.

Fairmount Apartments - Manvelant and benevolent hauntings. This is a building that is located on the corner of NW 26th and Vaughn Street in northwest Portland. This is the last building standing from the centennial celebration of the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1905. It was once a grand hotel and it now an apartment complex. Some of the residents over the years, have reported seeing apparitions late at night, while others have felt somewhat of a threatening presence mostly on the lower floors especially in the halls. Upstairs, the presence is not as threatening.
