Port Gamble and the Walker Ames House

                                                        This is a beautiful home that is supposely haunted
Port Gamble Washington

This little town is a designated a Historic town it’s a small town but interesting .  Port Gamble has been in movies such as Zombies of Mass Destruction. I don't have it on my radar to watch but that would have been a funny site to see Zombies walking down this picturesque little town. The population of Port gamble is about nine hundred people.It seems like the downtown is just a couple of blocks and then it's over.

Port Gamble has also several paranormal events each year. Supposedly one of the most haunted homes in the Pacific northwest is the Walker Ames house

There is a story that a spirit lives there and does not like women. The little boy spirit was rumored to be mentally ill.
Poor little boy was locked in a closet by his family because they didn’t know quite how to care for him. I could have thought a few other ways but that’s just me.
 Such a sad story so apparently he pulls women’s hair. There is also a story that someone was at the general store and saw a woman’s face peering out of the window with a child. You can check out all sorts of sites about the house on the internet where people have investigated ghosts at the Walker Ames house.

There are such cute shops and a sea shell museum upstairs in a general store. It is such a pretty little town to shop and explore.

                                 It's hard taking a pictures while your driving out of town

it looks like a beautiful little town. But I would steer clear of the haunted house. That creeps me out!!

What a wonderful adventure you had so many interesting places to see and visit. I adore old homes, especially those with a history but not a haunted history! Greetings from Maine, Julie.
