Portland, OR is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Pittock Mansion. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Pittock Mansion in Portland, Oregon has quite a haunted history. Built in 1909 by the wealthy publisher of the Oregonian Henry Pittock. He and his wife Georgiana died in the house in 1918-19, with their family remaining in the home until 1964. The mansion is now a museum, and although it is not publicly touted as being haunted, the reports of ghostly activity keep coming in. Numerous reports of odd occurrences and ghostly sightings continue. Visitors report seeing strange shadow figures out of the corner of their eyes, and physical displays of activity such as windows closing without anyone near them have been reported. Also, there are times when toys and other objects that are on display will move as visitors pass through.
This house is testimony to the theory that spirits will sometimes spend their afterlife in their treasured homes. It is believed that the aroma of roses and apparitions appearing as an elderly woman are related to Georgiana’s presence. Also, renovations can sometimes stir activity in these old structures, and that certainly can be attributed to this site.
