BEND, OR -- As Halloween approaches, the Deschutes Historical Society is offering an up-close look at Bend's most haunted locations.  Now in their fifth year, one-mile public tours of Historical Haunts start Thursday evening and continue through the weekend in downtown Bend.  
Museum Board member Anna Johnson says the tour guides visitors through stories of mystery, love and the after-life, including that of George Brosterhouse, "He and his brother were building the old Reid School and he fell to his death.  And, our building- for the Deschutes Historical Museum- is haunted because he did die there. There are also stories of the downing building and the O'Kane Building, as well as McMenamins and some other stories as well.  But, I don't want to give too much away."
Public Tours begin at the Deschutes historical Museum and end at Crow's Feet Commons.
All ages and abilities are welcome, although visitors are reminded to dress for the weather.
Tickets can be purchased at the museum.
