The “Off the Beaten Path Tour,” visits a location where bodies were dumped by the Murderer Jerry Brudos, as it meanders along Mill Creek, ultimately to Salem’s old hanging ground.
This tour sometimes elicits reactions from guests that aren't seen on the regular Downtown Tour. Oh, it’s spooky, you can count on that. In fact, the last time I was in this area it was for a gathering of paranormal researchers who recorded quite a bit of paranormal activity beneath Liberty Street. This unique tour, which happens Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m. takes you away from Salem’s streets and sidewalks, as it examines the city’s Native history and other points of interest.
The Off the Beaten Path Tour meets Thursday nights at 7:00 on South Commercial St. next to Salem’s City Hall and Library complex. Map your way to the address 515 Commercial St SE, Salem, OR, which is the address for Woodry's Furniture, and the City Library is across the street, parking is free after 6:00 p.m.
Copies of Tim King's new book, "Haunted Salem, Oregon" are available for $20 at the end of each tour.
