Jesse H. Settlemier House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Jesse H. Settlemier House

This Victorian manor house was built in 1892, and it is believed some of the former residents who called this historic house home have never really moved on. Visitors have seen the apparition of a lady in an old-fashioned black dress, who has been known to move furniture around. Other activity reported includes ghostly laughter, disembodied footsteps and doors that fly open by themselves.

    My name is Bret Buchanan and I am a member of NW Paranormal & Occult Research, more commonly known as N.W.P.O.R which is based out of Vancouver, WA. We are a non-profit organization that covers Washington and Oregon. Recently, I have come across the history of the Jesse H. Settlemier House, and am very interested in your thoughts on a possible investigation.

    N.W.P.O.R takes a scientific approach with regards to conducting our investigations. We use a variety of scientific equipment to prove or disprove the claims of paranormal activity. After the investigation we use software to analyze all the data (i.e. photos, video, audio, etc.) collected to validate the possibility of any paranormal activity. Feel free to visit our website to learn more about the N.W.P.O.R policies & procedures.

    If you would like to discuss a possible investigation further, we would be more then glad to arrange a time to talk further via email, phone, or in person. At that point we can cover more details and answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you.
