- Bagdad Theater, located in Portland, is a theater built by Universal Studios in 1927 that was used as a cinema as well as a theatre stage for plays and vaudeville shows. A theater maintenance man hung himself behind the stage, and the women’s bathroom is reportedly haunted by a spirit. It is now operated by McMenamins as a cinema and pub.
- Hot Lake Hotel is a supposedly haunted hotel in eastern Oregon. The hotel is known for a massive fire that occurred in 1934, as well as suicides and hauntings from ghosts during its days as a sanatorium. Countless people died on the property, including a doctor who killed himself in an operating room, as well as a nurse who died after falling in the scalding hot springs. The building served as a hotel and resort for its homeopathicmineral waters, as well as a hospital and elderly home, and housed a restaurant in the late 1980s. It was in disrepair by the early 1990s, but was restored for the public in 2003 by a private family. In 2001, the hotel was featured on the television show The Scariest Places on Earth.
- The Multnomah County Poor Farm, also known as the Edgefield Poorhouse and Edgefield Power Station, located in Troutdale, Oregon, is supposedly haunted. The construct, built in 1911, operated as a poorhouse, and also housed the mentally challenged, the disabled, and the elderly; since death was common in poorhouses, many people were buried on the property in unmarked plots. The property later served as a sanitorium and a reform school for troubled kids before falling vacant in 1990. It is now a hotel operated by McMenamins restaurant and brewery, and has several restaurants and bars on the property as well as an outdoor stage for concerts. Hotel guests have frequently reported hearing a woman’s voice reciting nursery rhymes, as well as unexplained crying in the building. A woman dressed in white is also often seen roaming around the property.
- Pittock Mansion, located in Portland, is reportedly haunted by its original owners, Henry and Georgiana Pittock, who built the house and died there.
- Rhododendron Village, located near the town of Rhododendron along the Barlow Trail, is a campsite that was used by pioneers on the Oregon Trail in the mid-1800s, and is reported to be haunted. The site, which houses several log cabins and mess halls, is near Laurel Hill, the steepest hill along Barlow Trail. Conestoga wagons were often hoisted up the hill by ropes, and many deaths occurred there; the Rhododendron Village served as a gravesite for many of these people. Volunteer workers there have reported doors slamming open and shut as well as lights turning on and off, and several graves have been discovered around the property.
- The Shangai Tunnels located in Portland are part of an underground city located in the Old Town/Chinatown district. The tunnels were often used during prohibition, as well as to kidnap and smuggle immigrants, laborers, and prostitutes who would be sold to ship captains passing through on the Willamette River. The tunnels are reportedly the most haunted place in the city of Portland.
- The Welches Roadhouse is a two-story house in Welches, Oregon on Mount Hood that is supposedly haunted by a woman who killed herself on the property. The woman purportedly jumped from a second-story door used for snowdrifts after the man whose child she was bearing— an escaped convict whom she had taken in— left her.
