Wow.... I visited back in 07 but before that I haven't been back since the 70s. I never thought of Tioga being haunted till I came across this site. I actually have found memories of the Tioga building. My grandpa owned the business that was called Tioga Coffee shop in the late 60s through the 70s next to the seedy Tavern that was at Tioga. Grandpas menu had regular America dinner food as well as Chinese food items. I remember hanging out all day with my grand parents and parents as they ran the place. This was when I was newborn to about 8 years old. I remember all the Royal Crown Cola I could drink. All the people that came off the buses that told me what good looking boy I once was. And the smell of Boyd's Coffee brewing. If memory serves me right. Grandpas coffee shop had it's own basement access. The access was through the kitchen with stairs next to the office or a really rickety elevator. The basement is were he stored stuff and... he had a bean sprout farm. I heard he was the first guy to supply the Portland area with bean sprouts and made good coins serving Chinese markets and restaurants. But enough of my family history there.... At times I would go down to the basement with grandpa to keep him company as he'd get bean sprouts ready for transport via Greyhound or sumth'n. (There used to be a Greyhound depot at the Tioga building.) I was always too scared to be down there by myself but never when my dad or grand dad was with me. I suspected something down there in the basement but at the time I didn't have the concept of ghosts yet. In the basement there was a long hallway that led to the parking lot where the Greyhoud buses parked. The hall was closed off by a door with a wire mesh on the top half where I could peer through on my tippy toes and see light at the end of the hall where the parking lot was. It was in that hall where I always thought that something was there. I think I asked grandpa what was down hall once or twice but I believe he said , "Ahh nothing is down there". Come to think of it. I dont recall ever seeing my grand parents or parents using the hallway. I never saw anything and I dont think any of my family has either. ...but I always thought something was down there. Me my parents left for Portland in 74. Then my grand parents sold the business in 79.Posted 10/13/20

My friend and I were looking for the Dining room and ended up in the inner stair well !! It appeared to start from the basement and end up on the roof. We were spooked from the moment we exited the elevator. We walked up two flights of stairs then turned around and walked two flights below the floor we started from. Evidentially we found the correct door which required some one to key the door from the other side. The whole experience was very unnerving. However, after we were escorted to the correct area for meals, I had a chance to look at the walls, ceiling, and windows. Knowing some of the history of the building such as the fact that we were in the old ball room, I could feel the essence of the buildings times gone by.Posted 6/27/20
