Historic Haunts of Downtown Bend

Historic Haunts of Downtown BendThis week, from the 25th through the 27th (Thursday through Saturday) the Des Chutes Historical Museum is again holding their annual “Historical Haunts of Downtown Bend Heritage Walk” which takes visitors through Bend’s colorful downtown history and historic buildings (though not inside of them) with a Halloween twist.

If you missed this incredibly fun event last year, bring your flashlights, comfortable walking shoes, plenty of nerves, and you’re ready for three nights of haunted history in the historic district of downtown Bend. The Museum hosts one-hour guided walking tours highlighting Bend’s troubled and turbulent past with a bit of the macabre thrown into the mix. Visit locations spanning 30 years of ghoulish history and be treated to stories of individuals who helped shape the region, but had a hard time leaving it behind…even after death. We’ll inter-weave history with the mystery of the unknown. Some stories may be familiar, while others we’re positive will give you a shock. Tour space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis with 12 tours operating each evening.

Cost is $10.00 per person, children under 12 years and Des Chutes Historical Museum members are FREE. Museum admission included. All tours begin at the Museum and end at The Tower Theater. Please note: the tour does not enter any buildings. Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available.

The tours run from 4 to 7:30pm each day and this sounds like a lot of fun.
