Highland Elementry (old Kenwood School) in Bend has been known to have scared off many school employees. I have heard many stories from this place. I will be working there next week at night and will share anything that happens while I'm there.

I used to work at Fairview Mental Hospital in Salem, OR back in '94. A little background of Fairview, it was a facility that had been opened in the late 1800's, I believe, and that is where society's rejects were thrown away. Very sad history of the facility. The patients/clients that were left there were anything from people with severe physical and mental disabilities. There were stories of brutal murders by residents of the upper cottages passed down from co-workers. It has long since been shut down and windows and doors have been boarded up. One very early morning I was working at the infirmary and while running to get some supplies I heard one of the very heavy steel doors slam shut, we kept all the doors in that wing of the "cottage" closed. So needless to say I was very shocked. I hurried to my co-worker to ask him if he had heard the door slam or saw anyone else head that way after or before me. He did not. I would be very curious to know if this is a place you would be interested in checking out.

Ive been there a few times, and nothing too crazy has happened. I do warn anyone with the intent of breaking in, they have a guard who is very good at his job. In the summer, when there is the most activity from teenagers, he usually sits in his truck with the lights off, or even drives very slowly through the grounds with the light off. I havent been caught by him yet.

I've heard only once where he called the cops. Usually, he will tell you to get out and write down your name.

As far as scary experiences go, I have yet to find a place that isnt boarded up enough to get into. Everything is very well locked up and boarded up ever since some kids set fire to a building a few years back. Ive heard screams inside the buildings though and had some very un-easy and actually terrifying feelings going there.

A friend and I tried to get in there one night and heard a screams that seemed like it was following us. We ran back to our car and got the hell out of there.

From friends and local stories, all ive heard is reports of screaming, and I've heard that you can hear chains upstairs in one of the buildings.

I have worked at High Desert Middle School many nights until around 11:00 PM. We do an outside walk around the school every night to make sure doors/ windows are locked and that there is no one outside the school. I have never seen anything there other than deer and rabbits after dark. No one that has worked this shift has ever reported seeing anything either.
I would suggest looking at the old Kenwood Elementary School and Amity Creek (which was built in 1948 on the previous site of the old Bend Mortuary). I hear from folks that work at these schools and they have some interesting stories of occurrences that go on at both. Also children talk about seeing things at these schools.

Thought you'd like to know that there are 2 weird mansion/manor-like houses next to the highway on your way to Florence. We've stopped there many times and filmed it! It's really huge and abandoned and creepy when you are alone. It's a great place to check out because you do feel not alone when you go there.(If you would like to see these videos, ask me and I'll make a youtube of them and show them to you: [email protected] Just tell me who you are!) Oh, and, according to theater students at Springfield High School in Springfield, there is a ghost who will turn equipment and lights on and off in the Auditorium. Apparently some man fell off the catwalks and died and he's haunting the auditorium.
i went to springfield high school and the auditorium is haunted. the ghost decided one day when my theater class was rehearsing for our play, to turn on and off the lights and try to hold the door shut so we couldnt get out.

Yes, we have investegated the Redmond Hotel. An found it to be haunted. The smell of smoke lengers due to the fact that the Hotel has burned down in the early years. An several people diebd there because of it. We took photos an captured a little boy as well as other phenomenon. Rumor had it that the Hotel was cured by the Chinese Restaurant just down from the Hotel. . The Ghost Seekers Paranormal

The Redmond Cemetery by the new middle school is pretty active. We have seen orb lights, saw multiple figures and did some EVP work. Haven't amplified the audio and put t through anything. One of the people I was with saw a woman in a blue dress. She was asking for help and lead my friend to a specific grave site and vanished. I took notes and did a little research on it and there is some interesting history with site and the the name on the grave. Many people have said to have seen things and heard things in that cemetery.

They uses Oregon State hospital for one flew over the cuckoo's nest. It's in Salem and is creepy as hell. My mom was a Nurse at the Salem hospital and they have series of underground tunnels connecting the hospitals and other places under the city. She had witnessed some pretty scary things under there.

Have you people checked out shady cove campground in the santiam canyon? extremely dark energy. I see someone else mentioned it on page 1. Oppression extends to trail on other side of river. Years ago we witnessed and interesting ritual taking place. That campsite was later closed to camping.

Not true, one flew over the cuckoos nest was actually filmed in salem, oregon at the Oregon State Mental Hospital, on 2600 Center Street in Salem
But regardless, in Salem there this huge broken down mental hospital called Fairview Training Facility. A Street separates my house from it called battelcreek, this when me and friends used to go in there, after it got closed by the government in 2000, is purely haunted. 13 bodies they buried were left there, and are still there. The walls have blood on them ( inside the many many housing unites, some windows are shattered and we went inside).
There's also huge garages, where we fund a stripped older Corvette with everything striped except the drivers seat with slash marks and dried blood. If you live in oregon, and you like hauntings, go there. It's right by the New Lesile Middle school on Pringle Road.
good luck...and get ready to run, security and sometimes police somehow always know you're in there. But with the huge landscape, you can see and hear them coming for miles, since the most haunted part of this place sits atop a little hill, giving you a very scary, eerie overview of the whole place.
Regarding this post : Fairview training center is not haunted ,I worked there for years up to when it was closed and have gone out there several times since 2000 last being dec 2012,to encourage people to go there is plain stupidity! there are signs posted no trespassing and security which do patrol the whole place make it a point to sneak up on any trespassers,Ive been in the buildings as they where running and many years after never once seen a ghost and us staff heard alot of scary stories while working and of course we would try and see if any of them where true and alls it ended up being was just another scary story the buildings are extremely unstable and unsafe due to no electricity for all these years,vandalism,and asbestos in most of the building,if someone was to get hurt or trapped it could be days to weeks before anyone finds you so its just plain stupid to encourage anyone to sneak on the property!and circle drive which was located at the top of the hill that overlooked the rest of the institute is for sure not haunted.
