You have to love the Halloween season, not just for the pumpkins and candy and trick-or-treating, but for the ghost stories and hauntings and creepy/scary fun—and starting today, the Deschutes Historical Society’s “Historical Haunts of Downtown Bend” walking tour is again taking place!

Stories of mystery, love, loss and the afterlife return! Now in our fifth year, Historical Haunts of Downtown Bend takes visitors to visit locations spanning 30 years of history of pioneers who helped shape Bend so much, they had a hard time leaving… perhaps even in death!

Cost is $10.00 per person, children under 12 years and Deschutes County Historical Society members are free. Museum admission included with tour fee. Sign up is first come, first served each day.

All tours begin at the Museum and will end at Crow’s Feet Commons. Please note—because many featured locations are operating businesses inside, tours do not enter into any buildings.

Remember to wear comfortable shoes and if walking after dark, bring your own flashlight.
Historical Haunts is open to the public and members Thursday to Saturday, October 23-25, 4:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available.
