Surprise! Everyone’s favorite public market just so happens to also be pretty haunted. And specifically haunted by Chief Seattle’s daughter, Princess Angeline. So next time you’re at the market be sure to keep your eyes peeled because you might just see a friendly ghost.

Where: 85 Pike St

Moore Theater

This beautiful theatre is a gem in our city and also regarded as one of the most haunted spots in the city. So while it may be a while until you can enjoy this theatre we recommend passing by to check it out. And of course, next time you go in be sure to look out for shadowy figures or Mr. Moore himself.

Where: 1932 2nd Ave

The Sorrento Hotel

This hotel is a favorite spot in the city for many Seattleites both living and dead it seems. And it’s been around for over 100 years! So next time you’re stopping by for a bite or drink be sure to check out the hotel as well. Because you might just see a few lost souls.

Where: 900 Madison St

The Arctic Club

This beautiful and iconic Seattle building has a dark past. Because in case you didn’t know, US Congressman Marion Zioncheck leaped to his death from the 5th floor. So while that happened in the 1930s, some say he’s still around to this day.

Where: 700 3rd Ave

Kells Irish Pub

This popular Seattle bar just so opened to have a different past as a former mortuary. So if that isn’t creepy enough, the bar is said to be haunted by at least a few spirits. And we’d imagine that if you stay for a few drinks you’ll be seeing more than 2.

Where: 1916 Post Alley

Northern State Hospital

This abandoned mental institution has a dark past which includes lots of death as you may have guessed. And with that in mind, it means that you might just see a few souls left wandering the property. But do your research before you go because part of this campus is still active and you don’t want to get arrested for trespassing.

Where: 25625 Helmick Rd, Sedro-Woolley

Lakeview Cemetery

Now we don’t know how haunted this place is but it does act as the last stop for at least a few famous people. So you can visit Bruce Lee, Brand Lee, and many many others at this beautiful Seattle cemetery. Not to mention, there’s nothing quite like a walk in a cemetery to put you in the spooky season mood.

Where: 1554 15th Ave E

Tacoma Old City Hall

If you plan on heading down south you can check out this building that appears to have a life of its own. And that’s because since the 1970s there have been many reports of noises, lights, and fire alarms going off by themselves. So go take a peek for yourself.

Where: 625 Commerce St, Tacoma

Starvation Heights Sanitarium

The Gessner Mansion

The last on this list is also affectionately known as the Georgetown Castle. But this spot has a dark past as a former brothel.
