There is plenty of evidence that several locations in downtown Bend have had, shall we say, unearthly visitors over the years.

Thursday through Saturday, the Des Chutes Historical Museum is conducting the third annual “Historical Haunts of Downtown Bend” walk.

 

Executive Director Kelly Cannon-Miller says they began the tour after many people were asking about haunted places.  "SSometimes people find history in the most unusual ways, buy wanting to know: 'Hey, is that noise someone from the past?' trying to let their presence known. And we try to mix in some good history as well, so here's the historic site, here's the things that happen there, oh and guess what, we've also heard these things. And some of them will creep you out. The McMenamins creeps me out." (There is a story that in the nunnery- past residents like to play with your camera!)

 

Cannon-Miller says the tour starts at 4:30 at the Museum and lasts for about an hour.  She recommends you wear warm clothes; good walking shoes and bring a flashlight and plenty of nerves.
