There’s something strange in your neighborhood... of Georgetown. That’s right, Ghostbusters, one of Seattle’s oldest enclaves may also be its eeriest, with a history of haunts dating back more than a century.
Let’s peek cautiously behind a few corners to see what’s lurking.
The Steam Plant
Built by the Seattle Electric Company in the early 20th century, this esteamed national landmark is open to the public every second Saturday of the month. But visitors beware…
Jules Maes Saloon
Considering the Saloon’s rough-and-tumble history, it’s a little surprising that a high society ghost would settle down there. Hope she checked her hem for toilet paper stuck to it.
The Gessner Mansion is more of a fancy house than a castle, but there’s an element of gothic horror to it. According to lore, the privately-owned building was originally built by a blackjack dealer named Peter Gessner in 1902, who died under suspicious circumstances.
Some believe Gessner died by drinking poison after his wife left him for a chicken farmer. Others think he may have been murdered. In either case, Gessner may be just one of dozens of spirits residing at the home, with reports of disembodied voices echoing through the halls.
