This Haunted Museum In Denver Is Not For The Faint Of Heart
Is it just me or does it seem like there are a TON of creepy and/or allegedly haunted restaurants, hotels, and shops in and around Denver? (You’ve noticed it too? Good!) Today’s location is yet another one of these hotbeds for the paranormal that may just come as a surprise:
Located in the North Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver, the Denver Firefighters Museum is housed in the original Firehouse Number 1 from 1909.
The large and beautiful museum spans two floors and houses several hands-on exhibits...
...and an impressive collection of firefighting artifacts from years past.
(In case you are wondering, this is an old alarm box that notified the fire department of any emergency!)
Now that you know a little bit more about what this museum contains, you may wonder what makes it haunted. Well...
As per the Denver Firefighters Museum
blog, "Our building was constructed in 1909, to replace the original Station One. It was an operating fire station for over 60 years, so there is naturally a lot of history that has taken place at this site. As a fire station, our museum saw the last days of horse drawn engines, the advent of motorized rigs, and was host to many firefighters that lived and worked within its walls. As a museum, it's seen thousands of visitors over the years, from retired and active firefighters to young schoolchildren to groups of any composition."
The article goes on to say that two of the most discussed spirits lurking around the museum are that of Tom (a former firefighter) and Caleb (a young man killed near the museum who was then allegedly buried where the building now stands).
When you visit, be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled, as museum workers, visitors, and psychics alike have reported unexplainable sounds when no one is around and even strange figures appearing in photos.
What do you think: Is the Denver Firefighters Museums haunted or is it merely a bunch of folklore?
