One night about 3 1/2 years ago (in 2012) it was around 10 or 11pm in the fall, My ex and I were walking down a road really close by the Orenco Max station, the one that if you continue down it, it veers to the right and leads to Orenco Elementary. Up in the distance by the old supposed haunted shop I saw a black figure in the street that appeared to be wearing a long dress with a rope or something tied around its waist.
It was swinging its arms and skipping around in circles, almost like it was just dancing in the middle of the road. It then skipped off into a field next to the old shop and disappeared. As we got closer, we realized that the field was fenced off. Once you walked into it there was no other way out unless you came back the same way you came in. I was so chilled by that and just freaked out. I heard that basically the entire Orenco area is haunted, and now I believe that to be true.

There are a number of places in Hillsboro and in its outlying areas. One of the restaurants has the ghost of my father's friend who crashed his plane there in a lover's quarrel. The old high school (now demolished) had a male student who haunted the girl's dressing room. The Hill Theatre was a Vaudeville style theatre, where one of the lead actors passed in the dressing room. The Town Theater has the ghost of an usher. There are 3 pioneer cemeteries that claim ghosts. In the outer areas, look to the old bars (the area was rough and tumble, and more than one gunfight was recorded) as well as one of the scarier places being the old asylum in forest grove. It should be noted that one of the largest death tolls happened in 1918 in a train wreck just at the old Carnation building.
