Evening haunted tours resume June 11 and continue monthly through October.
Join us again next year when we recognized the legacy that Jacksonville pioneers left for us — and that some of our pioneers still linger as well in the forms of spirits and ghosts.
Haunted tours are offered the second Friday of each month starting in June. In October tours will be offered on both Friday, Oct. 8, and Saturday, Oct. 9. A Britt Hill Tour features tales of arson, saloons and Oregon’s first Chinatown. The Courthouse Tour highlights stories of brothels, epidemics and hangings.
Summer tours begin at 7, 7:15, 7:30, 7:45 p.m.
October tours begin at 6, 6:15, 6:30, 6:45, and 7 p.m.

Private tours can be arranged for 10 to 12 guests at a cost of $15 per person. All tours begin at the Jacksonville Visitors Center at the corner of North Oregon and West C streets.
