The Creepy Small Town In Colorado With Insane Paranormal Activity

Colorado has a little bit of everything, doesn’t it? From incredible landscapes and wildlife to different festivals and events each weekend, there is no shortage of things to do in the Centennial State. One of our many unique offerings happens to be that of playing the slots and eating our weight in buffet food in the small and historic town of Black Hawk. What you may not realize about this tourist town, however, is the insane paranormal activity occurring behind closed doors…

Founded as a mining settlement during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush, Black Hawk is not just known as being a historic town, but also as the least populous city in the state (with 120-something permanent residents). After the decline of both mining and the railroad, Black Hawk opened its first casinos and — since the early 1990s — is now known as one of the most popular gambling spots in Colorado. Just what makes this small and memorable tourist town so creepy? Well, for starters…

These are three of the most spine-tingling stories to come out of Black Hawk… but are they merely stories or is there more than meets the eye in the historic mining town? Share your thoughts and experiences with us in the comments.
