Oregon Vortex

Early this century the commercial potential of a twisted and tilted fun-house was recognized by forward thinking entrepreneurs. All it took was some judicious preparation, possibly the embellishment of oft-told Indian legends, and dropping a mysterious circular sphere of inexplicable influence dead center on the "Fabulous Oregon Vortex," which included the newly-minted "House of Mystery". This roadside tourist attraction opened for business around 1930, and has been raking them in ever since. - Written by Mark Cowan.
