Here is a ghostly gazeteer chronicling the numerous contemporary accounts of Northwestern hauntings and other strange happenings reported in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
The typical Northwestern ghost almost always appears alone, in the form of a faint, often grayish wisp. If it is seen, it is generally not heard. If heard, however, it frequently plays a musical instrument or sings. And while impish—occasionally bopping victims on the head with a pillow—it rarely harms the hauntee.The ....
public ghosts inhabit restaraunts, museums, churches, theaters, hotels—even hospitals. In Yakima, Washington, the “Capitol Theater Ghost” is purported to have once saved a girl's life, while Seattle's famed Pike Place Market appears as well known for its restless spirits as for its excellent shops.
