Here in Jacksonville, we take our history very seriously and we recognize the legacy that the pioneers left for us.  We also recognize that some of our pioneers are still with us in the forms of spirits and ghosts. 

Join us in 2022 to hear more about these “restless” former residents when Historic Jacksonville will again offer two different 1-hour “Haunted History” walking tours the 1st Friday night of each month from June through September, plus special October tours.  Costumed tour guides will share both history and tales of pioneers whose spirits still dwell in many of our historic buildings.

These tours are not your typical ‘ghost tours’ with special effects.   They are history tours about real hauntings resulting from past events.  The stories—some scary, some benign—come from multiple sources, from people who have experienced these lingering spirits.  They are our attempt to recognize and honor these restless souls.

Two completely different 1-hour tours are offered, and both tours include haunted houses!

The Courthouse Tour highlights tales of brothels, epidemics and hangings.

The Britt Hill Tour features stories of arson, saloons and Oregon’s first Chinatown.

Tours will be offered the first Friday of each month from June through September with special October tours on both Friday and Saturday.   

Summer tours begin at 7, 7:15, 7:30, 7:45 p.m.
October tours begin at 6, 6:15, 6:30, 6:45, and 7 p.m. 

Tours are offered with alternating start times.  Summer tours begin with the Courthouse tour.  October tours begin with the Courthouse on Friday night and the Britt Hill tour on Saturday night.  

Private tours can also be scheduled for a minimum of 10 and maximum of 12 people at a cost of $15 per person. Date and time must be mutually agreed upon.

All tours begin at the Jacksonville Visitors Center at the corner of N. Oregon and West C streets.  Tour group size is limited to 15 people!  Cost is $10 per person.  Information is available by contacting 541-245-3650 or info@historicjacksonville.org.

Tickets can only be purchased on-line and reservations must be made no later than 4 p.m. on tour dates; “walk-ups” will only be accommodated based on space available.

Please note:  Our goal is to keep everyone healthy so we will be observing whatever mandated and recommended protocols are in effect at the time of the tours.
