The Oregon Vortex House of Mystery, Gold Hill

3.5
#464 of 1,739 in Things to do in Oregon
The House of Mystery was built in 1904 by the Old Grey Eagle Mining Company as an assay office and tool-shed. This company stopped mining gold in 1911. A few years later this assay office slid off of its foundation on an angle and has been that way ever since. It was not until 1930 that it became known as The House of Mystery at The Oregon Vortex.

  • I haven't been here yet but it looks really cool. It came up when I searched for Gravity Falls. Seems like an interesting place
  • Just a fun family place filled with ooz and ahs. The guided tours are excellent and price just right.
  • This place is beyond strange. The staff was awesome and it was a mind bending experience for sure. Smiles
  • Great place to spend a day. Staff had tons of historical and quirky facts
  • This was really fun. It's better to bring a friend but even doing it by myself I still had a great time! It's a great place to take kids for a break during a long road trip.
