Ghost Walk Tours Start in October: Home to what is arguably one of the most haunted buildings in Washington state, the Walker-Ames House in Port Gamble has become a local hotspot for paranormal groups, psychics and investigators.

Anyone who has wandered the streets after dark, explored the Buena Vista Cemetery, or participated in a ghost walk or investigation does not need to stay long to know that Port Gamble has more going on than meets the eye. With recorded evidence going back as early as the 1950s, there are stories from nearly every building in town.

Former town manager Shana Smith was first approached by Neil McNeill and Evergreen Paranormal in 2006 with the request to perform an investigation on the Walker-Ames House. Shortly after that, Smith began actively collecting and recording the stories from current and former tenants.

The popular annual Ghost Walks are from 7-10 p.m. October through March and typically sell out fast. Take a guided tour of Port Gamble highlighting the town’s history and paranormal experiences. It includes stops in the Walker-Ames House, the Historic Museum, Post Office, old morgue and the Buena Vista Cemetery. Participants must be 16 to attend. Cost is $25 per person; reservations required.

Port Gamble Bay Cleanup Project: Contractors are gearing up for season two of the project on the site of the historic mill. Please note that the mill site is still closed to the public.

You may observe the work from the bluff above near the Port Gamble Historic Museum. Truck traffic will be increasing soon and more work will be happening during the summer tourism season — please be careful in town.

Season two commences in mid-July. Stockpiling of materials on site and pile pulling began in mid-June. In addition to the work adjacent to the mill site, this season will include pile removal and demolition of the former log transfer facility that is within the county park. There will be an approximate three- week construction closure of that shoreline access point beginning July 17.
