FOUNDED ON DREAMS AND BUILT ON NIGHTMARES, Port Townsend is the living embodiment of what happens when the past and present meet at the crossroads of fate. Listed as one of the top ten most haunted cities in the nation, Port Townsend's sordid past contributes to the dark secrets of this Victorian Seaport's ghostly history. Believers, skeptics non-believers alike, are all welcome to test their courage.

Port Townsend is a haunted city, there is no doubt about that. The mountains that surround us bear the residue of Native American spiritualism, the often bloody and ruthless act of shanghaiing, and some of history's most dynamic personalities. Psychics are drawn here, murmurs of a mysterious "vortex" energy is frequently reported, and paranormal investigation thrives. 

Our ghost tours are more than just stories...taking a Twisted History Tour into the haunted streets of the City of Dreams is a great way to see the beauty that is Port Townsend. Discover why it takes on a new life, or rather, after-life, once the sun slips into the Salish Sea.

Victorian mansions, the lovely homes of the gentler folks -- and many a disgruntled ghost! Just because the residents were of a refined ilk doesn't mean they were beyond reproach and certainly not beyond revenge. While many of these properties are privately owned, they offer a glimpse into dark tales of murder, acts of jealousy, and the tragic deaths of loved ones. Could you bravely call one of these houses HOME?

Set off on an adventure to find ghostly locations in a mix of lighthearted fun and historical fact. You’ll be amazed, intrigued and entertained every step of the way as each location serves as a backdrop to another fascinating tale where you'll see and hear some spooky stuff – not just oogie-boogie supernatural stuff. Chilling tales of pirates and ghostly apparitions are part of this tour, with the youngest of guests in mind.

This is not for the faint of heart! Starting at 10pm and lasting through the witching hour, this is more than just a ghost tour. This event includes an app for download, Q&A session before the tour and paranormal investigation equipment for your use during the tour. This is a full 120 min. twisted experience of downtown, with extra attention to hot spots along the way. All info is logged and put on a thumb drive for your review.

From dark shanghai tunnels to swarthy sailors, Port Townsend at the turn-of-the-century looked very different than it does today.  The many unexplained disappearances, murders, suicides and strange tales surrounding our seaport lend to the mysterious sightings and other-worldly events that take place.  Come on...we dare you!  {Bring your camera, you might catch an orb or two!}
