Portland, Oregon is known for many things. They are known for having numerous micro breweries, the Portland Trail Blazers and a hit TV show that satirizes the culture surrounding the city. It is a great place to live and to visit. However, the city of roses does have a shady history that lies underground. The shanghai tunnels are not only not kept secret, but for any tourists/thrill seekers, there is a tour.
Centuries ago, able bodied men found themselves the victim of trapdoors that led them to Portlands underground, where they would be imprisoned til they were eventually sold to sea captains. These underground areas, now known as the Shanghai Tunnels, connect various basements through a series of tunnels. These tunnels have grown antiquated, and due to the dark and eerie setting, the tunnels are believed to be haunted. A ghost tour is even offered.
Portland is a fun and quirky city that is not without some colorful history. The Shanghair tunnels remain proof of this. Whether someone is a tourist, or a Portland resident, they will get a thrill from seeing these historic haunts. For more information, visit http://www.shanghaitunnels.info today.
