Oregon VortexThe Oregon Vortex and House of Mystery is one of Oregon's coolest examples of roadside Americana. Located in an old gold assay office in beautiful Gold Hill, Oregon Vortex is a strange place where logic and the laws of perspective are reversed. A spherical force field, above and below ground, Oregon Vortex is a natural phenomenon - visual and perceptual – that creates an optical illusion and a cool height anomaly. When you stand in the circle of the vortex, you incline toward magnetic north. If another person on a level platform recedes from you towards magnetic south, they appear taller and when they approach you towards magnetic north, they become shorter. Hundreds of years ago, the Native Americans called it the "Forbidden Ground".
