PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland's ghosts landed the city on the top ten most haunted-cities list, according to a new poll.

Last year, the Rent.com survey found that 11 percent of renters believe they have lived in a home inhabited by ghosts.

The site said Portland's Shanghai Tunnels, used to kidnap people in the 1800s and shuttle them to the harbor to be shipped off as slaves and prostitutes in the Far East were tops among haunted places.

The former brothel and current bar and grill White Eagle Café was also on the list.

The most haunted - Savannah, Ga., largely for its Revolutionary and Civil War battlegrounds. Many tourists choose to take haunted ghost tours while they’re in town.
