The Scariest Places in America

These asylums, horror film locations and other spooky sites show the creepier side of our country's history

SHANGHAI TUNNELS, PORTLAND, OREGON

This network of tunnels below downtown Portland may or may not have been used for the process of "Shanghai-ing," the unseemly practice of capturing able-bodied men and selling them for labor. Another theory about what happened in this Prohibition-era labyrinth: Contraband booze was smuggled in for the hotels and bars upstairs. Whatever the true history, it's fun to take a tour and form your own spooky speculations.
