The Oregon Vortex
By Dennis Powers
An unusual place rests five miles up Sardine Creek from Highway 234 (which turns two miles later into Second Avenue when in Gold Hill). Calling it the “Forbidden Ground,” Native Americans avoided the area, as apparently did their horses, wild birds, and other wildlife. Despite this, the Grey Eagle Mining Company in the 1890’s built a gold assay office on the site and near their mine. The structure was plumbed level when constructed.
During a heavy rainy season in 1910, a mudslide carried the slanted-wood building down the hill where it slid against a maple tree. No longer plumb or level, the house is still there but rests at a weird angle. Now named the “House of Mystery,” balls inside roll uphill, people stand weirdly, and brooms angle on end. Outside the twisted house, people appear dramatically taller when they shift positions.
John Lister was a geologist, mining engineer, and physicist. Visiting the area in 1913, the Scottish scientist was intrigued by what he saw. Named the “Vortex”--defined as a fluid or gas circulating around a core with its inside pressure being lower than its outside--Lister later bought the property. He developed it in the early 1920s, conducted thousands of experiments, and in 1930 opened it to the public.
Lister claimed the property was at the intersection of strange forces he named terralines, or energy that causes a repelling (anti-gravitational) electromagnetic field. The story goes that Lister became so frightened by his discoveries that before he died, he burned his notes. After his death, Maria Cooper's family in 1961 left their Gold Hill service station and motel to buy the Vortex. Then in high school, Maria twenty years later quit her job as a social worker to run it when her father became ill. She continued on for years.
The controversy also continues. Balls seeming to run uphill and a pendulum hanging at an angle can be explained by the crazy, skewed building. It’s argued that this effect is caused by the distorted perspective of not seeing the horizon but against the background of converging lines. When visual references are skewed sufficiently, people can actually feel dizzy--which they do. Outside, however, is another story. Photographs of people changing places (one taller than the other) evidence their changing heights, based solely on the new position. Trees grow in weird shapes; people shrink or grow as they walk, one way or the other.
Is this an optical illusion, caused by terralines, or due to a deep metallic core with different influences? The controversy continues today.

APPROPRIATE DISCIPLINARY ACTION ON A 6-YEAR OLD?
The above picture taken by Hunter's mom, Nicole Garloff of Grants Pass. Due to an unreliable car, Hunter has been late several times for school at Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass School District 7. Because of tardies, Hunter had to sit behind the "wall of shame" at school lunch. Probably not the best call by school administrators.
UPDATE: HUGE THANKS to Lisa Kelly and Kelly's Automotive in Grants Pass and Medford for volunteering to donate $500 in car repairs to get the Grants Pass mother and father's car fixed. This is the family with the 6-year old boy, Hunter, who was shamed with lunch detention for being late to school several times. I'm kicking in cash to help, same with other KMED listeners.
