Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Post Alley

Seattle’s most quirky tourist attraction, the Gum Wall, is located in Post Alley. But many have captured videos of shadowy figures roaming through Post Alley, indicating a far more sinister past than just a fun tradition.

Butterworth Building

Formerly Butterworth and Sons Mortuary, The Butterworth Building is known for a curse that befalls any brave owner who dares to buy it and the strange mists that fill the hallways.

Moore Theater

Moore Theatre was the site of Seattle's first cemetery and a Native American burial ground, both of which were ripe for grave robbing. Now, hotel guests report being watched in the middle of the night, possibly resulting from a seance gone wrong.

The Hauntings of Seattle

Seattle was founded by the Denny Party in 1851 with the purest of intentions, but the result was anything but pious. What was meant to be a town based on Christian ideals and morals ended up being a hotbed of sin, vice, and illicit activities. The degenerate loggers and sailors that inhabited early Seattle created a city ripe with ghost encounters that still occur today.


But before the brawl-happy citizens of Seattle arrived in droves, the Salish people inhabited the area. They were eventually forced from their land, and the new Anglo-American settlers named their settlement after Chief Sealth. This seemingly honorable gesture was considered a curse in the Salsih tradition.


One is not meant to mention the name of the dead after their passing. That may be why Seattle has become the ghostly hotspot that it is today.

The Most Haunted Places in Seattle, WA


The most haunted places in Seattle are hiding around every corner of the Emerald City. The Cadillac Hotel, now a museum, is no stranger to tragedy and is haunted by a murderous mother and her victimized child. Another well-known building in Seattle, The Arctic Club, is often surrounded by gawking onlookers, mystified by the sight of a man falling to his death. However, he disappears before he ever hits the ground.


Martha Washington Park was once the Martha Washington School, a home for delinquent girls, many of whom were abused and mistreated. Visitors to the park often feel like they are being watched from the bushes, and there have been reports of Satanic cults lurking in the shadows. Kells Irish Pub, located in the haunted Butterworth Building, is known for glasses that mysteriously slide off the bar. Seattle Terrors brings the most haunted locations and unseemingly spirits in Seattle to life on a nightly walking ghost tour through the Emerald City.

You’ll find their artwork in every Seattle corner shop, but there are other elements of the culture that linger in the shadows.
