With our rich history and heritage, the Mile High City has long been a popular spot for ghost hunters to convene and seek signs of life from the other side. Tales are told of angry spirits, lost souls, and other perturbed paranormals that float just above the hallowed grounds of haunted Denver. Are you brave enough to go on a hunt for a Mile High ghost? Only time will tell…
1. Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens
For 50 frightening years, guests visiting this historic mansion have reported seeing the ghosts of two teenage girls who were victims of a gruesome rape and murder roving the haunted halls in search of restitution.
2. Molly Brown House Museum
Likewise, visitors to the home of the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" tell tales of pianos that play tunes all their own, swirls of fresh cigar smoke wafting through the air, and dark shadows that flit about the rooms ever so eerily.
3. The Brown Palace Hotel
Since its opening in 1892, the historic Brown Palace Hotel has never closed it doors, and over the years it has been a hot spot for paranormal activity, including mysterious men who vanish into thin air, unexplained murmurs and voices throughout the property, and peculiar phone calls ringing out into the night air.
4. Cheesman Park
One of the Mile High City's most notorious locales to spot a ghost is undoubtedly Cheesman Park, a former cemetery where bodies were grossly mistreated and unsettled spirits roam the grounds searching for their final resting place.
5. Littleton Cemetery
All you really need to know is that the ghost of the infamous
calls this creepy cemetery home.
6. Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave
Rumors abound that a man resembling William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody has been seen wandering the hallowed grounds of his museum and gravesite on Lookout Mountain...so be on the lookout!
7. The Buckhorn Exchange
Denver's oldest steakhouse got its start as a nitty gritty saloon where gamblers, rounders, miners, and gunslingers used to wet their whistles and shake the gold dust off their shoes. According to reports, some of those adventurous spirits still hang in the balance, belly up to the bar, and laugh and guffaw when no one else is around. (P.S. Is it me or does this look like a scene from Taxi!?)
8. Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Red Rocks is yet another historic spot where you can catch a glimpse of ghosts of the Old West. Keep your eyes peeled for a prospector with long flowing beard and hair known to roam those parts.
9. Denver International Airport
The swirls of conspiracy theories and paranormal activity at DIA are never ending. Secret Native American burial grounds, the curse of Blucifer the Murderous Mustang, and the government's elaborate underground bunker are just a few of the haunting tales told.
10. Fitzsimons Army Medical Center
From 1918 to 1999, the Fitzsimons Army Hospital in Aurora housed patients suffering from a whole host of tragic ailments, such as tuberculosis and casualties of chemical warfare. It's no wonder that people report hearing mournful noises and seeing deceased military and disgruntled spirits roaming the not-so-sacred grounds.
