10. Portland, Oregon
The Shanghai Tunnels, which run beneath the buildings and streets of Portland, were used in the 1800s to kidnap people and ship them off to Asia as slaves and prostitutes. A saloon owner would get patrons drunk before sending them down a secret hatch, never to be seen again. Some say those spirits still roam the tunnels with visitors hearing whistling, smelling fragrances, and phantom contact when no one else was around.
