4 years ago I attended a concert and was in the bathroom downstairs and went to wash my hands a relatively tall lady in a long dress I caught out of the corner of my eye walked out of the bathroom I thought it was funny cause I was the only in there and I hadn’t seen or heard anyone until it she got to nearing of the door.. at the time i’d not heard this story i just found out a year or so ago. Those bathrooms are hella creepy though.S

Its open now. It has been for the last 5 or 6 years. They closed it when they renovated it.

RE: The Ft. Stevens Ghosts

I own a house in Hammond, very near Ft. Stevens that is supposed to be haunted. I’ve felt the presence and had a latched door open. One of my tenants was told by a woman to get off the couch and got to bed (he was alone), and a visitor asked me if I knew the house was haunted. My new wife is unaware of all this; I don’t want to tell her and scare her.

this is a comment for cristeen. There is another place that is totally haunted, but you have to be a student there. It’s at tongue point jobcore… Residence one is very haunted, it’s cool though and scary at times but there nice spirits…

I am the current janitor of the Liberty Theater and I can honestly say that yes it is haunted but it’s not that creepy. I hear noises all the time and have actually had the lights go out while in the lower lobby which you could say is part of the basement and heard a womans voice behind me

The Flavel house is haunted, it was like at 11 at night, my family and i were driving by cause they just picked me up from the airport in Portland and we were driving home. I looked out the window, i don’t know why but it felt like something was drawing me to look at it. I look at the bay windows were Mrs. Flaval like to watch the ocean to see if she could she her husbands ship (or at least that was what i was told). A older looking lady was staring at me, she was in a victorian styled dress.It was the weirdest thing that i have ever seen, i asked if anyone else in the car saw her,(cause i was tired, it was like 11 at night we were all tired) they said “no”. But later that night my sister comes up to me and says “Clare i think i saw her, Mrs. Flavel”. i told some of my friend i go to school with most of them saw Mrs. Flavel one time or another.I always look at that spot when we are driving through, I didn’t see her again or least not yet.

To those who keep trying to get into the old Flavel House, please just stop it. To Chris Hayes – was it you and your buddy who threw the balustrade through the window of the old Flavel house in order to get in? Neighbors are trying to keep people OUT of the house so that they don’t do anymore damage to it, so anyone reading this, knock it off and stay OUT of the old Flavel house, we are now watching the old Flavel house full time, 24 hours a day and we WILL call the police if we see you lurking around the house.

Hi, I lived in the historical area of Ft Stevens for a few years. We were in the old officerss homes. In discussions with our neighbor, we found that both sides were haunted (they are duplexes). I often saw a shadow of a tall man. Sometimes in a top hat. We would smell maple syrop in the kitchen at the most unlikely times, right where the old stove was piped in. Our neighbor had many encounters and sightings.
About the old delapitated Flavel House. That is my favorite house in the area. We have been here for 3 years now, and I would give my right arm to see the inside of that place. Wish there were tours. I wouldn’t go in illegally.

Many of you commenting here really should consider re-taking an English class or, at the very least, getting a dictionary! Please…take some personal pride in how you represent yourselves!!

Okay it has been a long time since i wrote about being there, NO i didn’t brake in and yes it was close, but my husband was in the Army NG at camp rilea and we used it for are men and women.I don’t care if you believe me or not but you must not live here because it has been open for many types of events.

I live in Long Beach, right across the Astoria Bridge in Washington and there is a lot of history with the Liberty Theater. Actually all around here. I’ve lived here for over 30 years.
The female and the male ghosts are both there. The man that sits in the upper lvl was murdered in that seat and pushed over the side. The woman that walks back and forth in the hallway, (not just the bathroom) was the mans lover. The woman’s former lover found out they were meeting in the theater in secret and behind his back. He sat behind them and watched until she went out into the hallway to either go to the bathroom or go to the lower level. Her former lover slit the mans throat from behind and pushed him over the side balcony. Then he walked out towards the hallway and found her walking back and tried to hold and slice her throat. He stabbed her a couple times and she got away and ran down the hall to the bathroom where she ended up dying. She did not know that she was bleeding to death when she locked herself in the bathroom. They say she does not believe that she is dead. That is why she walks back and forth. To watch for the killer to leave so she can run away. Sometimes people (workers) could hear her sobbing, And the guy she was there with is always spotted walking to the seat he was sitting in before being murdered, and sitting down to watch the show. It was even documented on AM Northwest.I’ll try to find where the episode is and post it here, if I find it.

Liberty theater is defiantly not “closed”. I live in Astoria and there is way more haunted **** around here then the liberty. Officers Inn bed and breakfast, Fort Stevens, Flavel house. Know your **** before you start a big *** argument that results in you looking like a fool.

The Rio Cafe is suppose to be haunted in Astoria as well. Was there having lunch and the owner was telling us about some of the experiences there. It use to be a brothel upstairs that is haunted also.

I ran the movies and cleaned after in the 80,s, I have been all through every inch of the place, the upstairs was never open to public cept the bathroom and the few who snuck on to the balcony, The basement was creepy, the mens was down there and ohh yes the locked door, actually 2 of them, 1 was snack bar suplies and the other well we didnt like it in there, all the Marque letters was in there and lots of junk, very creepy **** indeed, I was 19 or 20 and still had the feeling that evil was own there, but the real spooky **** was not down there, it was behind the stage and below the stage in all the old dressing rooms and a maze of tunels under the town block, saw many a strange shadow figures and weird **** down there, I never went down there much, id just rock the stereo over the PA and clean and get the hell out…

I live in a house that people say is haunted because a niceghost died in my parents bedroom.I wanna meet him. We are members of the historic thing so we can go into the flavel house. It is really cool. But the theater reopened again and the reason of astoria being haunted is because it is the oldest city.

Worked there for two years… There is a man that watch’s the stage occasionally. But the ice room. That’s where it is. Anyone who’s spent time there knows what I’m talking about. Take a right before the men’s bathroom down below. Had to prop the door open for fear of not being able to open it after it shut. A very real fear, that’s all I felt there.

The Liberty theater is haunted by a young girl who’s boyfriend murdered her there, they say that she locked herself in the women’s bathroom before he killed her which is why she haunts the bathroom (at least that is the story my grandma would tell me and she lived in Astoria all of her life)

An actor for the theatre says:

The theatre is haunted by her, but there are others. There are twins who hide backstage and giggle at night. There’s a ghost on the balcony who helps put chairs up when people leave. And there are many many many more.
