Haunted Hotels In Wyoming
What is the most haunted place in Wyoming?
There are lots of haunted spots in the Cowboy State, but one that truly stands out is Heart Mountain Relocation Center. The Center was once the site of unspeakable horrors during World War II, when Americans were interred in concentration camps based on their ethnicity. Today, the grounds have been turned into an Interpretive Center where visitors can learn about the dark side of Wyoming history. Along with stories of the past, though, you might encounter an unsettled spirit that roams the halls ensuring that anyone who visits Heart Mountain is reminded of the discomfort and tragedy the captives experienced.
Are there any ghost towns in Wyoming?
There are dozens of ghost towns in Wyoming, all remnants of the state’s mining and settling past. In Kirwin, an avalanche forced the population away from the town in a hurry, and you can still visit some of the ruined homes today. Gebo, a quiet spot in Hot Springs County, is home to ruins of a former pioneer town, including their allegedly haunted cemetery. If you want to learn more about life before the ghost towns busted, visit South Pass City, where you can tour an old ghost town village and then head to dine at the Miner’s Grubsteak in the next town over, Atlantic City.
Are there any haunted restaurants or bars in Wyoming?
Wyoming’s famous Occidental Hotel is home to a haunted restaurant! When you dine at the Virginian, you may find yourself sharing spirits with, well, spirits. At the Historic Plains Hotel in Cheyenne, you can dine with the ghost that’s roamed the rooms for decades. If you grew up near Casper, you probably remember the Wonder Bar. This historic spot in town is closed permanently now, but for years, it was noted as one of the most haunted spots in the Cowboy State.
