The Des Chutes Historical Museum‘s annual Historic Haunts Heritage Walk is back again for another Halloween, and it started today and runs through Saturday the 26th.

The Des Chutes Historical Museum invites visitors to take a walk on the haunted side with the Historical Haunts of Downtown Bend Heritage Walk, October 24, 25, and 26, from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m.

This year’s walk features new buildings and new stories of mystery, love, loss, and the after-life. 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.

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 per person, children under 12 years and Des Chutes Historical Museum members are FREE. Museum admission included with tour fee. All tours begin at the Museum and end at The Tower Theater. Please note-because many featured locations are operating businesses inside, tours do not enter into any buildings. Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available.

Overall the Walk is a mile in length, and sounds like incredibly good fun.
