Haunted Denver, Colorado -
Littleton Town Hall
Arts Center –
Built in the 1920's,
this building once housed city offices, a jail out back, and the volunteer
department. Located in the
suburb of Littleton, there have been several reports of friendly spirits
heard laughing and playing music late into the night. Staff also report
that objects are often moved about and desks rearranged by unseen hands.
Lumber Baron Inn –
Located in the historic
Potter-Highlands neighborhood, this 1890 mansion was built by a Scottish
immigrant who amassed a fortune as a lumber jack. The 8,500 square foot
home fell into terrible disrepair over the years and was converted into
apartments by the 1970’s. In 1991, the abandoned and condemned building
was saved by the current owner and today serves as an elegant bed and
breakfast. During its times as a rundown tenement, a 17 year old girl was
raped and murdered in the building. A friend, who stumbled upon the
murder, was also killed. Today, the elegant mansion is said to have
experienced a number of hauntings and paranormal activities, one of which
is the frequent sighting of a ghostly woman.
Molly Brown House Museum –
Victorian house, built in 1894, was once home to Margaret Brown, who
became known as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown” when she survived the
Titanic’s sinking. Today, her home is said to be haunted by her
husband J.J. Brown. Never allowed to smoke in the house during his
lifetime, he seemingly rebels today as pipe smoke is often smelled
lingering in the attic and basement. In the dining room, chairs are often
known to move on their own accord and a ghostly woman in Victorian garb as
been seen. The specter of Molly’s adored cat has also said to lurk about
the building. Near the first floor staircase, some have reportedly
seen an angry looking butler peering at himself in the mirror. Other
phenomena includes cold spots felt throughout the house, doors that open
and close of their own accord, the sounds of footsteps in the upstairs
ballroom, and misty apparitions are spied in various places.
Oxford Hotel –
at the crest of the silver boom in 1891, the five-story brick
structure was designed by leading architect,
Frank Edbrooke, who would later also design the
Palace Hotel. Having survived the silver panic and the Great Depression, the hotel
was remodeled in the Art Deco style in the 1930’s. The oldest
it continues to cater to travelers today, as well as at least a couple
of restless spirits. One bartender reported that in the Cruise
Room, a lounge that sits frozen in time since its Art Deco facelift in
1933, a man sat down at the bar wearing an old fashioned post office
uniform. After ordering a beer, he reported muttered something
about how expensive it was. Then as he continued to sip on his
beer, he was heard to quietly make other odd comments, such as, "the
"I have to get the
gifts to the children.” When he left, the bartender went to pick up
his "empty” bottle, only to find it was completely full. Reportedly, the spirit is that of a postal worker who was delivering
Christmas presents to nearby Central City in the early 1900’s. However, neither he nor the gifts ever arrived. The next spring
his decomposed body was found with all the gifts still in his
possession. Another tale of the Oxford alleges that a young
woman was murdered by her husband in room 320 when he caught her there
with her lover. In this room visitors are said to have sometimes
see the faint image of a woman standing in the room, as well as others
who have captured on film what appears to be a woman’s face.
Rocks Amphitheater –
Nestled in the
Rocky Mountain Foothills fifteen miles west of
the Red Rocks Amphitheater provides acoustic perfection not duplicated
anywhere in the world. Here, along with the many performers who please
crowds of thousands, also lurks the spirit of man from another
era. Often seen standing on the "restricted” side of the
railings, is a grizzled looking old man thought to have been one of
the many miners who once traipsed these foothills in search of their
fortune. Described as about 5’5” tall, with a beard, dirty brownish
hat and a bottle in his hand, he shows himself for just a few moments
for he vanishes.
Yet another legend
also persists of a wild, headless woman, who is said to brandish a bloody
hatchet is often seen riding a horse throughout Red Rocks. Galloping
at night, she is seemingly intent on stopping any mischief or illicit
romance that might be taking place upon these grounds.
Tivoli Student Union
- The union, at the Auraria Campus, combines services for the
Metropolitan State College and the University of
The Tivoli is a
landmark, originally serving as one of twelve buildings of the Tivoli
Brewery in 1866. The building became the student union in 1994, but
still today some of the large brewing equipment still remains. Today, voices and whispers are often heard throughout the building and
according to reports; an elegant ghostly party can be heard coming through
the vents on the third floor.
University of Denver –
A couple of
places are said to be haunted at the university. The most often told tales
occur in Mary Reed Hall, described to be very active with paranormal
phenomena. Though currently housing administrative offices, the building
opened as the university’s library in 1932.
Many report having felt cold spots in rooms that are otherwise very warm,
doors get stuck before magically open of their own accord, fresh light
bulbs suddenly stop working, and even the ghostly image of a woman has
been sighted on numerous occasions. Some say the "Mary Reed Ghost” is of
Mary Reed, herself, who contributed large amounts of money to the
university. Others say it is her daughter, Margery Reed,
who died at
a young age from an illness she contracted in South America.
ghostly figure, often spied in the DuPont Room, is thought to perhaps be
Mrs. DuPont, who’s husband contributed substantial funds for the library. Regardless of who she is her translucent image is most often seen sitting
and reading in the dark in both the DuPont and Renaissance Rooms. Another story tells of a janitor who was pushed behind when locking up the
building. When the custodian turned around, no one was there. When, she
continued to walk away, she was allegedly pushed again by unseen hands.
Another hot spot at
the university is the Lamont School of Music, where at Dunklee Hall; a
student allegedly killed herself on the second floor. Today, eerie
incidents are said to occur here, including a door that quietly closes of
its own accord after people have exited the room.
