Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery
Located on Capitol Hill next to the Lakeview Cemetery (the burial site for Bruce and Brandon Lee – also said to be haunted), this century-old burial spot is home to more than 500 graves from the Civil War era. Witnesses claim to see apparitions of spirit soldiers wearing Civil War uniforms wandering the site and hear the cries and moans of the deceased.
The Harvard Exit Theater
This building has been a theater and meeting place since the late 1920s. It features vintage décor and a reputation as a place where spirits still congregate. It’s been investigated by a plethora of paranormal groups, psychic mediums, and tourists, many who claim a few spirits still linger and appear as apparitions.
Pike Place Market
Daily this market is full of vendors and shoppers, but locals know it’s one of the most haunted places in Seattle. And why wouldn’t it be? Natives forced off the land and the market was built over an Indian burial ground. What more do you need for a haunting than that? Apparitions and other paranormal activities have been witnessed here for decades.
