Is it just me, or have we been talking a lot lately about haunted places around Colorado? First, it was just plain old haunted homes, hotels, and roads; then it was actual ghost towns; and now? Haunted cemeteries! Why do we keep talking about all these spooky locations? Because they’re awesome (duh!) If you are a thrill seeker/wannabe ghost-chaser (like yours truly,) you’re going to want to check out these 7 creepy Colorado cemeteries that are sure to give you goosebumps.
1.) Woodpecker Hill (Canon City)
Woodpecker Hill is home to many death row inmates, so it's no surprise that there have been several reports of shadowy figures, orbs, and the sounds of laughing children (other residents of the cemetery.)
2.) Cheesman Park (Denver)
What is now a popular park was once a corrupt cemetery where the bodies of the deceased were mistreated. Today, the entire Cheesman Park neighborhood is said to be haunted by the spirits of those laid to rest at the former City Cemetery.
3.) Bingham Hill Cemetery (Laporte)
Legend has it that when you drive by the old cemetery at night, ghosts will chase you, sounds of crying babies fill your car, and you may even feel a cold hand touch your arm...Remind me to NEVER visit Bingham at night.
4.) Evergreen Cemetery (Leadville)
Eerie Evergreen Cemetery is home to the graves of Native American activist Helen Hunt (pictured,) the spirits of some of the old area silver miners, a mischievous blue orb, and a woman in white who appears to the living when flying over graves.
5.) Littleton Cemetery (Littleton)
The fact that notorious cannibal Alfred Packer is buried here is haunting enough..
6.) Silver Cliff Cemetery (Silver Cliff)
Silver Cliff is most famous for reported dancing blue lights that are said to float through the cemetery and bounce on the headstones -- the legend of the lights has even earned itself a feature in National Geographic magazine.
7.) Buffalo Bill's Grave (Golden)
Last but certainly not least is the grave site (and Museum) of the world famous Buffalo Bill Cody. Legend has it that souvenirs at the Buffalo Bill Museum fall off the shelves without any coaxing and that a man resembling Cody has been seen wandering around the gift shop.
