Why is Seattle So Haunted?

 

Seattle is named for Chief Sealth of the Duwamish tribe, who once occupied the area around Puget Sound. New settlers forced the Indigenous from their native lands, but a few fought back. Most notably, Kikisoblu, the daughter of Chief Sealth.

She remained in her home on the banks of Elliot Bay, where Pike Place Market exists today. Her ghost can still be seen roaming around the world-famous marketplace at night. The history of Seattle is one of hard work, as gold miners, fishers, sex workers, and loggers flocked to the city to get their piece of the pie.

Early on in Seattle’s history, a massive fire left the town in ruins, but the fledgling city came back with a vengeance as the reconstruction efforts resulted in a city that was bigger and stronger than ever.

Immigrants came from both East and West, as Chinese, German, Scandinavian, Filipino, and Italians came to town looking for jobs in a thriving economy. Seattle today is known for its seafood, tech culture, and social movements, but the ghosts of Old Seattle are still kicking under the city streets…literally!

The spirits of gangsters and sex workers are often spotted in the Seattle Underground, which runs right under the historic Pioneer Square district, the oldest and spookiest part of the city! Seattle was a hub for gold miners, sailors, and loggers passing through from the Old West, and their rebellious spirits still inhabit the many old saloons that dot the city.

Or maybe you want to take a walk through one of Seattle’s many haunted cemeteries? Whatever spooks tickle your fancy, make sure you book a spot on our Seattle ghost tours with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours today!
