The Witches Castle
Posted 11 October 2006 - 10:17 AM
"Witches Castle is located in Portland, Oregon's Forest Park. Enter the park via the N.W. Upshur (Macleay Park entrance) and follow the trail to the castle. No idea how it got its name, although the candles and animal bones frequently left scattered about may have something to do with it. Danford Balch, the original owner of the land in the Macleay Park area, was the first man legally hanged in Oregon."
"Once a stone trading shack during the 1600s, this haunt is located at the crossroads of two trails leading to the coast of Oregon. At the site, it is said that there are “ghost wars.” If one happens to be there during one of these rituals, it is almost impossible for him to get away."
Here is a post from a lady I found. I contacted her in hopes to find out more. I edited a few lines.
"I have been to Witches Castle. First of all the Building is very old. And there was a man hung there. the first man to be hung in Oregon. Also
in Forest park where it is located there have been murders and Bodys found there as well.
Let me tell you i have been to alot of places but this was one of the most haunted EVER so FAR.
I was blown away by the amount of Activity that goes on here. It was a Very haevy feeling and VERy DARk.
I was very overwhelmed by the things i felt and some of them were not so good.
I have heard story also from friends who have been there who have seen faces in the water, who have seen red eyes glowing, have heard walking when no one is there, and another friend of mine was there in pure day light and she saw about twelve spirits coming down a hill at her, also one other friend said that somting chased her out of there and cut her leg. Plus the EVPs i got there were intense. I Am going to go back and get more next week with some friends of mine.
Needless to say everyone who has walked in here that i know has experienced somthing unerving and overwhelming.

Will not invade the sacred shrine, Nor infiltrate your mind
My life down I shall lie, If the bogey-man should try
To play tricks on your sacred mind, To tease, torment and tantalize
Wavering shadows loom, A piano plays in an empty room
They`ll be blood on the cleaver tonight. ~ The Smiths
