The Oregon Vortex House of Mystery was built originally in 1904 as an assay office and was later converted for tool storage by the Old Grey Eagle Mining Company. Prior to the occupancy, the area was known as the ?Forbidden Ground? by Native Americans because the horses hesitate to enter the affected area. Years later, a geologist by the name of John Litster, renovated the area and opened its doors to the public in 1930. He conducted scientific experiments and analysis of the disturbance until his death in 1959. The building currently sits at the Gold Hill area, Oregon.
