Bend Ghost Tours
Best-selling Ghost Mystery Author Now Offering Haunted Tours of Bend
“We want to introduce people to another side of Bend -- the hidden side of this city.”
Bend Ghost Tours was created by Jools Sinclair and fellow best-selling mystery author Meg Muldoon.
The two have combined their unique storytelling gifts and research skills to create a
bone-chilling 1.5-hour outdoor walking tour through Bend’s downtown streets and alleyways.
“Truthfully, I didn’t use to believe that Bend was haunted,” Muldoon, who was a reporter in Bend
for several years before becoming an author, said. “But after listening to so many stories of
paranormal encounters from Bend business owners, locals, and visitors, I’m now convinced that
this town is full of ghosts.”
Historical locations like the Pine Tavern, the O’Kane Building, and McMenamins Old St. Francis
School figure prominently in the tour, along with their resident spirits. . For more information and to book a
tour, visit www.bendghosttours.com
