13 SPOOKY PLACES


Seattle Underground City - Seattle Washington
Seattle Underground City for HalloweenVisit the spooky city that lies beneath Seattle's present street level where you'll learn how the Underground was created. The subterranean walkways are dry, but the history sure isn't! You may remember seeing the Hollywood version in the 1973 made-for-TV movie "The Night Strangler" where newspaper man turned monster hunter, Carl Kolchak is searching for a supernatural serial killer who is hiding in the underground city beneath the streets.

 

Seattle Underground City TourWhat most people don't know about this coastal city is that in 1889, an accidental fire spread rapidly through the downtown area burning most of the wooden building. The local fire department tried to fight the fire, but the fire hoses soon lost their pressure, and a human chain of fire fighters manning buckets of seawater from the coastal shore were used to fight the massive fire for a time. In the end, thirty-three blocks of Seattle burned to the ground.



Halloween in Seattle's Underground CityReconstruction was very quick, but not very coordinated. Buildings were erected before city officials could implement their plan to elevate street levels nearest the waterfront. At some point, officials ordered that the streets must be raised. Stone walls were erected on each side of the roadways and filled with whatever materials were available including fire debris, dirt from the hillsides, garbage, even dead horses, before the surfacing work was complete.

 

Seattle Underground City TourThere is tour available that consists of guided walking tour beneath Seattle’s sidewalks and streets. While you roam the subterranean passages that once were the main roadways and first-floor storefronts of old downtown Seattle, Tour Guides regale you with humorous and often risqué stories that Seattle's founders wouldn’t want you to hear. It’s history with a twist! Be prepared for the underground landscape to be moderately rugged: you’ll encounter six flights of stairs, uneven terrain and spotty lighting. Dress for the weather—and leave your high heel shoes at home! Click here for more information.

When visiting or investigating any spooky place be sure to obey all local laws and always respect the privacy of land owners and residents. Always get advance permission to enter private property. Never trespass on, take anything from or damage anyone's private property. Always show respect!
