Legends of the White Eagle

Legends of the White Eagle

Presented by Rocky Smith, Historian and Paranormal Investigator

A prostitute killed upstairs by a jealous lover, drunken patrons shanghaied through a basement tunnel, and a waitress half pushed, half-carried down the basement steps by an invisible, but persistent force. Such sordid lore envelopes the White Eagle Café & Saloon and the details become more graphic and gruesome with each telling. At the White Eagle, the line between this world and the other—and between fact and fiction—seems to have been thoroughly and wonderfully blurred.

There is more than just good story telling going on here, though. Psychics and paranormal investigators who have examined the place have reported paranormal activity and a deep well of sadness dwelling on the second floor.

About the Speaker:

Rocky Smith was born and raised in Oregon City, Oregon. Today, he teaches art at Oregon City High School, where he has been for the last 18 years. He is also well known in the community as a local historian and paranormal investigator. Smith served two terms on the Oregon City Commission from 2009-2016 and after a much needed 2 year break from politics Rocky was just elected again to the Oregon City Commission. In college Rocky worked for three years in the historic Ermatinger House, the oldest house in Oregon City and the third oldest house in the state of Oregon. He has had many paranormal experiences over the past 20 years in the Ermatinger House including his first experience, which was featured in Susan Smitten's book, Ghost Stories of Oregon. Smith has also worked to preserve the historic home which has undergone a complete restoration and is now open to the public!

Smith started researching the paranormal activity in Oregon City in 1995 and has documented close to 100 haunted places within the city. In 2006, he combined his love for history and knowledge of the paranormal, founded Northwest Ghost Tours and now leads the Walk with the Spirits tours in Oregon City. Smith has been featured on local radio and TV and has been asked to speak at several paranormal conferences on the west coast. In 2006 and 2007, he was awarded Teacher of the Year at Oregon City High School. Smith was awarded Oregon City's Citizen of the year for 2013 and is the director of the quickly growing Oregon Ghost Conference
