Cripple Creek, Colorado, 1890

Cripple Creek, Colorado, 1890

In the high country beyond Pike’s Peak is the Cripple Creek Mining District , dotted with historic mine shafts, headframes, and tumbling down miners’ cabins. Not only might a visitor find a “taste” of gold fever in this historic district, but may also experience their hair rising on the back of their necks as they “bump” into one of the many ghosts that reportedly roam the area.

Like many other mining towns of the Old West , Cripple Creek is said to be extremely haunted. Given its rich history, complete with mining accidents, floods, fires, lawlessness, and bloody battles between mine owners and labor unions, it comes as no surprise to learn of the many ghosts who continue to linger in this once-thriving city. In fact, there are so many tales of spirits wandering this historic town, that at one time boasted one homicide per day, some say it is the one of the most haunted cities in the United States.

Colorado Grande Casino

The Fairley Brothers and Lampman Building at 300 East Bennett Avenue now houses the Colorado Grande Casino and Maggie’s Restaurant. Here, you may not only enjoy a little gaming and some great food, but you might just get a glimpse of a ghost as well.

At the turn of the century, the three-story brick commercial building housed a variety of businesses, including a drug store, a millinery, an engineer, a lawyer and more. It’s rock-faced cornerstones, recessed center entryway, and decorative molding made it one of the finest places in town for retailers to display their merchandise and offer their services. Over the years, the building also housed medical offices, a Masonic Lodge ballroom, and a mortuary.

In addition to the sounds of slot machines heard throughout the building today, many have also heard the “ghost” of Maggie, who has reportedly been lingering throughout the building for decades.

Usually appearing on the top two floors of the building, the sounds of her high heeled shoes are often heard echoing in the halls.

Described as about 25 years old and dressed in turn-of-the-century clothing, she wears a white shirtwaist, a long cotton skirt and high-heeled boots. The young beauty, with her hair piled atop her head, is known to leave behind the scent of her rose perfume even when she isn’t spotted.

Some have reported that singing and dancing is sometimes heard emanating from the old ballroom, as well as the sounds of Maggie’s lilting soprano voice heard singing an Irish accented concertina.

At the casino, security guards have often reported seeing “Maggie” along with a gentleman friend playing the slot machines after hours. She has also been caught on tape by the security cameras. However, after being viewed and stowed away, the tapes mysteriously vanished.

Hotel St. Nicholas

St. Nicholas Hotel, Cripple Creek, Colorado

St. Nicholas Hotel, Cripple Creek, Colorado

Perched atop a hill overlooking Cripple Creek is the Hotel St. Nicholas. Originally built as a hospital for the many people flooding the region in the late nineteenth century, the Sisters of Mercy opened the St. Nicholas Hospital in 1898. The building also served as lodging for the Sisters and a school for students in its early days.

In 1901, a second hospital was opened by Teller County, located in what is now another historic inn – the Hospitality House. To compete, the Sisters claimed their facility to be “thoroughly equipped with all modern improvements, beautifully located with the best physicians in the district in attendance.”

Over the years, the hospital served the many prospectors and families of the area and expanded to include a ward for the mentally ill. However, when Cripple Creek’s mining played out, the hospital closed its doors for the last time in the mid-1970s.

For the next two decades, the building sat empty until a series of unsuccessful business attempts were made by various owners. However, this historic building, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, finally found its niche when it was restored and refurbished by innkeepers Noel and Denise Perran and Susan Adelbush.

Today the Hotel St. Nicholas, with its panoramic view of Cripple Creek, contains 15 guest rooms, all pleasantly appointed with antiques, fine linens, and the unsurpassed elegance of yesteryear.

The hotel’s Boiler Room Tavern, popular with both locals and guests, is so named because the barback is the front plate of the inn’s original coal boiler. Here, you cannot only enjoy a beverage, but also a variety of Mexican food menu, and live music during some weekends.

In addition to the opulence you will find at the Hotel St. Nicholas, you might also “find” a ghost or two. Said to be haunted by a number of spirits including nuns, children, and former patients of the mental ward, the most often “seen” ghostly resident is one referred to as “Stinky.” Lurking at the back staircase of the old hospital, “Stinky” makes his presence known with a sewage-like smell. The apparition of an old miner with no upper body is also sometimes seen.

Another ghost, that of a little boy affectionately known as “Petey,” has been seen throughout the hotel, but most often is held responsible for stealing cigarettes and moving items about in the tavern.

Quietly located just blocks from the gaming district, The Hotel St. Nicholas is can be found at 303 North Third Street in Cripple Creek.

Buffalo Billy’s Casino

Long before Buffalo Billy’s became the casino that it is today, it was known as the Turf Club. Still, visitors can see at the top of this historic building, the carved letters spelling out “Turf Club Room 1896.” During Cripple Creek’s mining days, several exclusive “men’s clubs,” including the Turf, lined the streets of the burgeoning city.

If was during this time, for reasons unknown, that the six-year-old spirit of a young girl took up residence in the building, and has remained there ever since. Known as “Lilly,” the friendly little girl has sometimes been seen sitting on the stairs, cradling a rag doll in her arms. Looking incredibly real, an employee once asked her if she was lost, to which Lilly replied, “No, I’m not lost, I live here.” When the employee left to get a security guard, the pair returned only to find the little girl gone.

On another occasion, when a tourist was playing the slot machines, she lost track of her daughter. When she began to search, she found her perched on the staircase. Asking her daughter what she was doing, the young girl replied that she was playing with Lilly.

Lilly evidently has an artistic side as her drawings, numbers, and letters are often found in the hallway at the top of the staircase. Although the walls are scrubbed down, the drawings always reappear.

According to the tales, Lilly is also said to like balloons, but only in certain colors. For example, if a blue balloon is left for her, it will pop. However, if a purple balloon is left, it will begin to wander around the building on its own.

Others have often seen Lilly peering from an upstairs window down to the street below.

Buffalo Billy’s is located at 239-243 E. Bennett Avenue.

Imperial Hotel

Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado

Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado

Following the disastrous fire that razed most of the city in 1896, the Imperial Hotel was built to accommodate the many miners and visitors to the area. Located at 3 rd Street and Bennett Avenue, the building was opened as the Collins Hotel, luring guests with modern amenities such as electric lights and steam heat.

In the early part of the 20 th century, the hotel was run by an Englishman by the name of George Long. Having emigrated from Europe as a young man, he made his way to Denver, where he married his first cousin. Before long, the couple was running the hotel, focusing on service, comfort, and fine dining.

The couple also began to have children – two daughters and a son. Perhaps because they were first cousins and too closely related, their oldest daughter, Alice, suffered from a severe mental disorder. As the girl grew older, she became more and more difficult to control, until her parents were finally forced to keep her locked in their apartment next to the lobby. Today, this is the site of the Red Rooster bar.

Sometime later, when George was going down the narrow stairs to the basement, he fell to his death. Though it very well could have been an accident, rumors began to abound that Alice had killed her father when he approached the top of the stairs, striking him in the head with a cast-iron skillet.

In 1948, the hotel introduced the Gold Bar Theater and the Imperial Players, who entertained guests for nearly five decades. Hosting the longest-running melodrama theater in the nation, the historic venue continues to entertain patrons today during its summer theatre season. In 1992 the hotel added limited stakes gaming to its list of attractions and began operating as the Imperial Casino Hotel.

The historic hotel is said to be haunted today by its former owner, George Long, who allegedly likes to flirt with the ladies and play the slot machines.

Several night time security guards tell stories of how the ding-ding-ding of the slot machines and coins hitting the hopper are heard late at night after the casino has closed. However, when they check the casino floor, no one is there. Later, when the machines are checked for malfunctions, none are found.

Guests, especially women, have often felt something or “someone” touching them during the night. Another tale alleges that a chambermaid reported having her bottom pinched by an unseen hand.

In the historic Gold Bar Theatre, evidently some of its melodramatic actors also have chosen to continue their “act,” as today’s actors tell of feeling the presence of someone when in the dressing rooms or touch upon their back.

Evidently, the “crazed” Alice also leaves her “imprint” on the historic hotel. If the staff leaves the door to the Red Rooster Bar closed, they hear the sounds of scratching on the other side of the door.

Today, the Imperial Hotel and Casino continue to welcome guests to its Victorian accommodations that include antique furnishings, French wallpaper, and chandeliers; as well as dining in its two restaurants and enjoying the entertainment of the casino.

The Palace Hotel/Womack’s Casino

The stage stops at the front door of the Palace Hotel in 1894.

The stage stops at the front door of the Palace Hotel in 1894.

Cripple Creek’s Palace Hotel first began as the Palace Drug Store. However, in 1892, the building was transformed into a hotel. With the influx of the many miners to the region, the hotel also featured one of Cripple Creek’s original gambling dens. As one of only two hotels during Cripple Creek’s early days, the place was so crowded at times; they even rented chairs to sleep in for $1 per night.

Alas, the building did not survive the 1896 fire that destroyed the entire town. However, the building was rebuilt and opened to guests once again. With its lavish décor, it soon became a major attraction for wealthy gold barons and high-rollers, as well as the many people who stepped off the stage at its front door.

By the turn of the century, the hotel was owned by Dr. Chambers and his wife Kitty. Taking care of his patients, the hotel was run by his wife, affectionately known as Miss Kitty. Priding herself on service, she offered a number of amenities to her guests, including placing lighted candles throughout the hotel and turning down the beds at night.

When Miss Kitty died in 1908 in Room #3 of the hotel, she evidently wasn’t ready to leave, as stories have it that she continues to reside there. Over the years, guests have told stories of how she continued to provide great service by making sure that the candles were lit and sometimes turning down the beds. Others have reported seeing a vision of Miss Kitty dressed in an old-fashioned white nightgown with her long hair down over her shoulders. Yet other people have reported seeing the same figure in the window of Room #3.

Palace Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado

Miss Kitty is not the only ghost said to lurk within these historic confines as some suggest other spirits continuing to roam the old hotel, including a short fat man, a tall woman, and a blind piano player. Reports include feelings of being watched; people who feel a gentle nudge as they walked up and down the stairs, crashing noises and footsteps in the halls when no one is there, and strange anomalies appearing in photographs.

Today, the hotel is the property of Womack’s Casino, as of this writing, no changes have been made to the building, which continues to stand vacant. The Palace Hotel is located at 172 E. Bennett Avenue.

Update: Reader’s Story – My wife and I were at Womacks Casino overnight on April 3, 2008, celebrating our anniversary in room 101. At approximately 1:30 am, I awoke to hear a scratching sort of sound coming from near our overnight bag. Remembering that I had some beef jerky in the bag, I figured a mouse may have found its way into the bag. I got up and noticed that the bag was touching the bottom of a chair that was in the room. As I leaned on the chair and reached down to grab the bag, I found that the scratching sound was actually coming from the chair itself. The chair was made of stiff leather on a type of rattan or similar wood/vine. I checked the bag and found nothing wrong with it, no mouse or anything else that would make a noise. I moved the bag away from the chair and did not hear the sound anymore.

I fell back asleep and about 3:15 am I was in a dreamlike state I think, because I was laying on my left side facing my wife, and in this dreamy state I was trying to move my right arm so as to hold my wife but something was holding my right shoulder tight. I must have awakened while struggling to move my right shoulder and suddenly when I awoke, my shoulder was released. I laid there awake for a few minutes (actually afraid to move) and listening for anything. I turned the television on and watched for an hour or so before drifting in and out of sleep.

Then I heard scratching on the sheet behind me, needless to say, I was wide awake again and all of a sudden the sheet behind me was pulled tight and bounced back with a slight “popping” sound. I sat straight up, looked around and saw nothing. That was the end of my trying to sleep. I said a prayer while remembering my father always saying that a ghost cannot physically harm you, just scare you if you let them. I did not hear or experience anything else in the next few hours, but woke my wife up early and told her what I had experienced. She is a very heavy sleeper and recalled nothing. We checked out by 8:30 am and have not been back since. Thanks for letting me share this experience. — Don, Westcliffe, Colorado, July 2008

The Victor Hotel

The Victor Hotel in Victor, Colorado

The Victor Hotel in Victor, Colorado

The first Victor Hotel was built in early 1894 by the Woods Brothers just in time to accommodate travelers arriving on the newly completed Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad. The large two-story wooden frame building was a showplace with its cone-shaped tower and enclosed balconies on its second and third stories. The “modern” hotel even featured electricity.

However, when a devastating fire swept through Victor in August 1899, the wooden building succumbed to the flames that spread quickly and destroyed the entire town in just five hours.

Not to be deterred, the building was reconstructed to stand the test of time, with brick and stone. Larger than the prior building, the “Bank Block,” as it was called, housed not only the “new” Victor Hotel but also the Woods Brothers Investment Company and the First National Bank. The four-story building also housed storefronts along the first floor and the upper floors held simple accommodations for businessmen and miners.

One distinctive feature of the hotel was its elevator, which came in handy for yet another function that the building took on. During the winters, when the ground was frozen between October and June, it was impossible to dig graves for those that died in the quickly growing city. As an alternative, the bodies were taken up the elevator and stored on the fourth floor of the building until the ground thawed enough to bury them.   It is apparently many of these long-dead Victor residents that haunt the historic hotel today. Though seemingly harmless, several people have witnessed the site of disembodied apparitions on the fourth floor. Reports include what looks like both doctors and patients, sometimes without arms, legs, and even heads, moving about this place that once acted as “holding cell” for the dead.

There are other haunted areas in the hotel including the basement, the elevator, the third floor, and the kitchen.

Throughout the hotel, guests often tell of seeing misty forms and hearing footsteps, sometimes accompanied by the sudden rush of cold air. In the kitchen, employees tell of utensils that are suddenly thrown about the room.

But the most prevalent ghost is that of a man named “Eddie” who allegedly fell down the elevator shaft years ago. Staying in Room 301 at the time of his death, Eddie has often been seen in the room, in the hallways, and in the elevator. Guests who stay in Room 301 also report hearing footsteps and other strange sounds that cannot be explained. Though the elevator is regularly inspected and maintained, it often tends to activate itself going up and down the shaft when no one is near it. Always stopping on the third floor, the elevator’s ghostly activity usually occurs around 3:00 a.m.

Today, the Victor Hotel, located at 4 th Street and Victor Avenue continues to provide accommodations to travelers. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel features 20 “modern” rooms with private baths. Victor is just a ten-minute drive from Cripple Creek through the historic mining district on Colorado State Highway 67.

Reader’s Tales of Cripple Creek, Colorado

Cripple Creek at Night

Cripple Creek at Night

Working With Ghosts in Cripple Creek – After reading a few of the other stories I feel I should add my experiences to the list. I have had a few and have heard others from close friends and family. When I was 14 years old, I reluctantly moved to Cripple Creek with my mom and step-dad from Las Vegas , Nevada in 1997. You could imagine how hard that was moving to such a small town. Well, at least the casinos were a familiar thing to me.

Anyway, I started working at the casinos and that’s when I had some experiences. My first experience happened at the Palace Hotel. The women’s restroom is where I saw my first ghost. I would always get a weird feeling when I went in there and never went in alone. On one occasion while my sister and I were in there, I was washing my hands when I saw in the mirror behind me, a woman sitting in the old antique full back chair that sat in the corner of the restroom.

She had on an old-style black and green full-length dress and had her hair done up on top of her head. I knew instantly that this was Miss Kitty that I had heard about from stories. I was standing there frozen when I heard my sister calling my name and realized the woman was gone.

I just started working at Johnny Nolon’s in the restaurant. One night when I was closing up I saw a little girl with a blue dress and white buckled up shoes just standing by my supervisor’s office holding a stuffed animal of some kind. I believe it was a bunny or something like that, it was really old and cheap looking. I asked her what she was doing over here since it was apart from the main floor where guests would normally be. She said she was looking for her daddy. I thought maybe the supervisor was her dad, I didn’t know. I put my hand out and asked to her come with me and I’d help her find him. She just looked at me and said she couldn’t leave or she would get into trouble. At that time, my supervisor was walking up behind me so I turned around and asked if this was his daughter. He looked at me and laughed. I didn’t get what he was laughing at until I turned back to the girl, that wasn’t there anymore! My supervisor asked if I was ok. I started rambling confusingly about what had just happened and he asked me if I wanted to hear a story. He then told me about a man that had owned the building back in the early days. He had lost his wife to some disease and was very protective of his daughter. He would go to work every day and leave his daughter home alone. He had told the girl that it very dangerous to go outside without her father and that the only way she would be safe was to stay inside and play with her toys until he came home. Well, she did that every day of her life. Then, one day there was a couple that lived in the same building that got into a huge argument and somehow a lamp got knocked over. The lamp broke and started a fire. The whole building went up in flames. The little girl never made it out because she was told the only way she would ever be safe was to stay inside until her father came home. To this day she has never left. That was the one and only time I had ever seen her while working there.

I have a sister that used to work as a housekeeper in the Gold Rush Hotel. She told me that there was also a little girl that she would see in the halls during the day while she was cleaning rooms. She said the little girl loved balloons and that she would sometimes be walking around with a red one. The girl was often seen sitting at the top of the stairs, allowing her balloon float to the top of the ceiling. Sometimes, guests would report that there was a balloon in the hallway but, no one was around.

In that same hotel, there is a room (I believe it is room #308, but I can’t remember exactly) that my sister hated to clean. She said it was just creepy. The first time she went in she said she saw a woman standing by the window looking out and she left right away. There were reports of the water turning on and the door closing by itself.

The last story I have is of Bob Womack’s Casino. I was 16 years old and a busser in the restaurant. The restaurant is on the second floor (the casino is on the first.) There is a huge staircase as soon as you walk in the front door of the casino leading to the restaurant. The wall is covered with a mirror and several occasions when I was walking up or down the stairs, I would see a faint figure following behind me, right on my heels almost touching me. Other times, I wouldn’t see anything but the presence was definitely still there. This happened maybe 15 – 20 times. There were also feelings of a presence in the first elevator. I used that elevator only twice and felt it both times and then I started using the other one with no problems.

Haunted House in Cripple Creek

I hesitated at first to send this off to you. However, after reading some of the other reader’s posts…I felt compelled to go ahead and send mine. This encounter occurred during the summer of 1973 in Cripple Creek, Colorado. My father had fallen in love with the town, and consequently moved all six of us kids, lock, stock, and barrel to the high country of Colorado.

I feel that I first should give some background on this former mining town in the Rockies. Cripple Creek exploded as a city when gold was discovered in the nearby hills around 1891. The town has had a rather tumultuous history, burning to the ground in 1896 and having a reputation for lawlessness in its infancy. The survival of the city depended on the price of gold…and when the price dropped, so did Cripple Creek. Needing the means to survive, the city turned to tourism when the last mine closed in 1962 (ironically, a few have since re-opened recently.) Tourism became the main economic engine that sustained the town until 1991 when limited stakes gambling was introduced to the area. Today, Cripple Creek enjoys the benefits of all three economic variables — tourism, mining, and gambling. During the summer of 1973, I was a sophomore at Cripple Creek – Victor High School. My sister, myself, and her boyfriend decided to sneak inside a supposed “haunted” house (turns out the rumors where true!) Technically, we were trespassing and easily could have been busted and suffered the consequences. But the thrill of experiencing a ghost sighting, combined with juvenile hormones, negated any threats of common sense.

We found a back door that was almost too easy to move and sauntered in. This house was a two-story Victorian, turn-of-the-century brick, with some of the original antique furniture still inside. We began to roam around the house, laughing, and making jokes.

When I opened the door to the cellar………….that’s when we heard. I want to point out that all of this was occurring in broad daylight, with the sun shining bright, in the middle of the afternoon. It wasn’t midnight or the typical 3:00 a.m. “ghost hunt.”

At first, we heard the sounds of silverware clinking on plates, then a cacophony of voices, combined with music from a bygone era. I should also mention that there was no electricity being provided to this residence at the time. The sounds began to swell and before long, the entire house was filled with the din of what we later thought to be a party or a ball of some kind. The three of us then proceeded to set a land speed record for exiting a home during a crisis.

Months later, this very same house was purchased by a wealthy writer, whose name I can’t mention. Afterward, several parties were held there. One night, during a particularly raucous evening, a young woman ran from this house screaming. Once her friends caught up with her and asked her what had happened, she told her friends that the “figure” of a miner had materialized by the fireplace. Others later reported seeing a ”distinguished” looking Victorian-era gentleman at the top of the stairs.

Years later, when I was researching the eccentric inventor Nicola Tesla, I came upon an article that described how the unconventional electrical genius had conducted a number of experiments in Cripple Creek. The same writer who had purchased and was living in the house at the time confirmed it was, in fact, Tesla’s residence at one time, where he had conducted experiments.

Despite his prolific inventiveness and eccentric lifestyle, Tesla was known to maintain a rather high social profile. His experiments in physics also upheld the belief and possibility of life after death.

Could it be Nicola Tesla, himself, that remains in this house?

Submitted by Mike Warden, January 2006

Legends Notes: Nikola Tesla was an inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer originally from Croatian Krajina who later became an American citizen. Tesla was best known for his contributions and inventions in electricity and magnetism in the late 19th and early 20th century.

After his demonstration of wireless radio communications in 1893, he was widely respected as America’s greatest electrical engineer. However, Tesla was an eccentric man, prone to making unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments. After making a number of these wild claims, he began to be ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist. He died impoverished in January 1943 at the age of 86.

Additional Update: Back in the early ’90s my girlfriend and I were traveling in Cripple Creek. I was an avid admirer of Nicola Tesla, and living in Colorado I felt it would be almost criminal not to venture down to Cripple Creek and find his old house. The drive from Denver/Colorado Springs/Manitou/Cripple Creek took much longer than we expected, and we arrived about 10 at night.

There really wasn’t anyone around to tell us where, exactly, Tesla’s house was (although we had heard it was still standing.)  We drove around the residential streets for nearly an hour hoping to find some placard or some kind of guidepost to no avail.  After about an hour, we pulled to the side of a street and seriously considered heading back to Denver admitting failure.

Just then, as we were scanning the dark silhouettes of the surrounding houses, the near side of a two-story house on the next block lit up as though a huge arc light had been aimed at it.  We both saw it, then scanned the area looking for a streetlight or anything that could have produced the light…. nothing!

Knowing Tesla’s genius was in electricity and lighting, we both felt satisfied that this was his way of saying he was there, and “welcome to my home.”  The light disappeared as quickly as it appeared, and we drove home satisfied we had found the house we were looking for…. with a little help from Mr. Tesla.

Welcome to the former Teller County Jail in one of Colorado’s most historic and haunted cities!

The History

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the Outlaws and Lawmen Jail Museum, once known as Teller County Jail, stands as a relic of Cripple Creek’s tumultuous past. In 1890, the discovery of gold in a nearby stream by Robert Womack sparked a gold rush, transforming Cripple Creek into a bustling mining district.

This rapid growth attracted not only miners and investors but also thieves, outlaws, and various miscreants, necessitating the need for a robust law enforcement presence. The Teller County Jail, constructed in 1901, became the epicenter of justice and order in this thriving, yet unruly, community. Housing 4-6 inmates per cell, it was a facility designed to keep peace in a town burgeoning with wealth and marked by frequent criminal activities.

The Paranormal

The Outlaws and Lawmen Jail Museum is shrouded in tales of the paranormal. Visitors and staff have reported a range of unexplained phenomena that hint at the presence of spirits from its storied past. The sound of footsteps, believed to belong to a former guard, routinely echoes up and down the staircase, as if continuing their eternal rounds. The apparition of Rosie, a former jailer, has been sighted in her sleeping quarters, suggesting her spirit still lingers, forever watching over the premises.

In addition to these spectral guardians, the museum is rife with other eerie occurrences. Dark shadows move inexplicably in the last two cells of the first floor, where many inmates once resided. The catwalk, site of the only recorded death in the jail, is an area of heavy breathing and cold spots, indicating a lingering presence of despair and tragedy. Even the physical realm seems affected, with reports of the security door that separates the gift shop from the jail flying open with force, as if pushed by an unseen entity attempting to escape the confines of its imprisonment​.

Our exclusive ghost hunt grants you access to the most haunted corners of the museum. Walk through the historic cell blocks, where the scribbles of the once-caged souls still adorn the walls. Feel the chilling cold spots near the infamous catwalk and witness the inexplicable movements of the main security door, a silent testament to attempted spectral escapes​​.

Join us for an unforgettable night at the Outlaws and Lawmen Jail Museum. This is not just a ghost hunt, but a journey through time, a confrontation with history’s eerie underbelly. Are you brave enough to face the spirits still serving their eternal sentences?

Ghost hunters delight

The jail museum has a long reported history of paranormal activities. It was featured on the TV show Ghost Adventures. It's rough and tumble history is documented in well throughout displays throughout the museum.

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum. We DO have some inmates who like to stick around, so be sure to bring your cameras!! We hope you will visit us again!

Lovely museum found at the top of Cripple Creek. Very interesting as u get to see the men's jail downstairs and the women's one upstairs. Fun place, as you get to dress up in jail uniform and takes as many pics as u want while in the jail and its cells. Price only $2 each, well worth it.

ghost adventures cripple creek colorado

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum. Great history and fun to be had by all!! We hope you will visit us again in the future!

For just a $2 admission, we spent about an hour touring the jail cells, matron rooms, and reading the abundant information posted on the walls. The worker (Vicki, I believe her name was) was very informative and enthusiastic, with just the right amount of giving information, and letting us tour at our leisure. Warning though...there are kind of steep stairs in the jail cells area, and a flight of stairs to tour the 2nd floor where women and children were held. (in case you have a problem with stairs)

ghost adventures cripple creek colorado

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum. I am glad you took the time to read the information. Years of research have gone into that information and we love sharing our unique history. We understand that the stairs are sometimes difficult to navigate, however, we are very fortunate to be able to keep the Jail architecture just as it was in 1901. Please come and visit us again in the future!!

Every time I go to cripple creek I try and take my elderly father somewhere new. This time it was the jail. I loved it, but my dad was unable to go up the stairs. I found the history there fascinating. The gentleman who told us about the history of the jail, wasn't very animated and seemed a bit bored to be doing this. Even at that he was very nice and I appreciated his kindness and helpfulness in offering to order the shuttle for my dad.

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum in Cripple Creek. I am glad you enjoyed the history and I am hoping to update some of the displays during the off season, so I hope you have the opportunity to visit us again in the future. I apologize for the lack of enthusiasm from the gentleman manning the Jail and I will be sure to address the issue. Thank you.

This is a very small museum but what a great piece of history. Won't take long to go through but worth it.

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum in Cripple Creek. Although it is a rather small museum, we take great pride on the research efforts which have been made to tell the stories of our area and our inmates. I hope you had a good time and got some pictures to remember your visit. I also hope you have the opportunity to visit us again in the future.

Stopped in before we checked into our hotel and even though it is smaller it has a lot to see. The artwork in the cells speak volumes. There is even a place you can take booking photos which is fun! Well worth the few dollars and time.

Thank you for visiting the Jail Museum. We like to think we have a "little jewel" of a facility and we love the unique history of this area. I hope you have the opportunity to visit us again in the future!

Road Trip: Ghost Towns of Colorado

If you're not careful wandering through Colorado's ghost towns you just might catch gold fever.

Popular tourist sights, challenging outdoor adventures, and lonely ghost towns await on this scenic loop through central Colorado.

During the late 19th century, gold fever roared through Colorado like wildfire, sparking instant towns. Like the mines nearby, most of the towns played out—though some still stand as ghostly reminders of the salad days. Besides ghost towns, natural wonders abound on this road trip, from towering mountains to fossil beds, from prime white water to a gorge deserving the name Royal.

Start in Colorado Springs

Head west on U.S. 24 from Colorado Springs, stopping first at the Garden of the Gods park (exit Hwy. 24 onto N 30th St.; www.gardenofgods.com ), whose towering sandstone fins and red, gravelly cliffs are spiritual places for Native Americans. Area stables offer horseback trips into the surrounding countryside. Just past the Garden of the Gods, in Manitou Springs ( www.manitousprings.org ), is the Cave of the Winds ( www.caveofthewinds.com ). Take in the cave's geological wonders on a 45-minute Discovery Tour.

At Cascade, turn off for the 19-mile (31-kilometer) toll road leading up to the 14,110-foot (4,301-meter) summit of Pikes Peak ( www.pikespeakcolorado.com ). Along the way, look for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep patrolling the alpine zone of stunted trees and shrubbery. Take a trip on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway to the village of Manitou Springs.

Cripple Creek

A left turn at Divide onto State Highway 67 leads you to Cripple Creek ( www.visitcripplecreek ), a former mining town where you can take a ride on the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad. From 1890 to 1910, some 500 mines in this area produced 22,400,000 ounces of gold. A National Historic Landmark, Cripple Creek claims a raucous mining heritage, which is faintly, though less authentically, echoed in the local casinos.

Just past Cripple Creek lies the ghost town of Victor ( www.victorcolorado.com ), which, though still inhabited, has many period buildings. Go for a stroll past the trolley depot, the Masonic Hall, and the Victor Daily Record newspaper office. The Victor Hotel is still open for business, and the local Lowell Thomas museum tells about the famous adventurer and writer who grew up in these mountains.

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument

Back on U.S. 24, a short drive west leads to the town of Florissant and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument ( www.nps.gov/flfo ), home to one of the world's richest deposits of fossils. Huge petrified redwood stumps and thousands of insect and plant fossils record the story of what this region was like in prehistoric times.

South Park City

Leaving the monument, climb to Wilkerson Pass at 9,127 feet (2,782 meters), where views of snowcapped peaks are visible from the visitors center. Continuing west from the pass, cross the grassy-banked South Platte River at Hartsel. About 18 miles (29 kilometers) north of the crossing, on Route 9, you'll find South Park City ( www.southparkcity.org ), a restored and re-created ghost town now operated as a museum, in Fairplay. Here you can visit the depot, filled with train memorabilia, and step inside the vintage drugstore and schoolhouse.

From Fairplay, head south on U.S. 285 to return to U.S. 24. At the town of Buena Vista ( www.buenavistacolorado.org ), follow Country Road 162 southwest for 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the ghost town of St. Elmo ( www.ghosttowns.com/states/co/saintelmo.html ). Explore the town's ghostly Main Street, peering into the windows of its frame buildings, which include the saloon, store, and several private homes. Back in Buena Vista, at the foot of the Collegiate Peaks, sign up for a whitewater rafting trip on the Arkansas River, which draws legions of rafters and kayakers in spring and summer.

From Buena Vista, head south on 285 to Highway 50 east. Five miles (eight kilometers) from the junction lies the town of Salida ( salida.com ), whose downtown historic district is crammed with attractive Victorian buildings.

  • Nat Geo Expeditions

Royal Gorge

Continuing east on 50 for 47 miles (76 kilometers), you'll come to the turnoff for Royal Gorge ( www.royalgorgebridge.com ), with its “World's Highest Suspension Bridge,” a span built in 1929. Here you can ride a cable car above the gorge, or board the Incline Railway for a trip down to the Arkansas River. Not far from Royal Gorge is the Museum of Colorado Prisons ( www.prisonmuseum.org ), housed in a former women's correctional facility built in 1935.

Aiken Canyon

Ten miles (16 kilometers) beyond Cañon City, pick up Route 115 north at the town of Penrose. Get a final taste of wilderness before returning to Colorado Springs at the Aiken Canyon Preserve ( parks.state.co.us/NaturalResources/CNAP/NaturalAreasInfo/AlphabeticalListing/Pages/AikenCanyon.aspx ), which boasts the largest remaining intact foothills ecosystem of the Front Range. An area of shrublands and woodland, Aiken Canyon contains a rich diversity of wildlife, including black bears, mountain lions, elk, and golden eagles.

June through September is the best time to drive this route, a loop of around 225 miles (362 kilometers) with numerous side trips bringing the total distance to about 375 miles (604 kilometers). For background information on Colorado's ghost towns, see Ghost Towns of Colorado: Your Guide to Colorado's Historic Mining Camps and Ghost Towns , by Philip Varney, Voyageur Press, 1999.

Ghost Adventures Season 7 Episode 7

Ep 7. Cripple Creek

  • October 26, 2012
  •   (68)

In season 7's episode 7 of Ghost Adventures, the team heads to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to investigate several haunted locations, including the Colorado Grande Casino & Hotel.

As the crew begins their investigation, they learn about the town's rich history with mining and gambling and how it may have contributed to the paranormal activity they're experiencing. They interview several locals and former employees of the casino who share stories of strange occurrences, including ghostly apparitions and unexplained noises.

During their initial walkthrough of the Colorado Grande Casino & Hotel, Zak, Nick, and Aaron immediately feel a heavy energy and hear disembodied voices. They focus their investigation on the basement, which was once used as a speakeasy during prohibition, and the hotel's infamous Room 18, where several deaths have occurred.

The team sets up their equipment, including their EVP recorder and thermal imaging camera, and begins their investigation. They experience several unexplained occurrences, including objects moving on their own, doors opening and closing, and a shadow figure in the basement. Zak even begins to feel a presence touching him and becomes visibly shaken.

In addition to their investigation at the Colorado Grande, the team also explores the old Cripple Creek jail and the Midnight Rose Hotel & Casino, where they witness strange apparitions and hear unexplained noises.

Throughout the episode, the crew uses both science and spirituality to try and communicate with the spirits they believe are haunting the locations. They even bring in a psychic medium who is able to connect with one of the spirits and provide some insight into the history of the hauntings.

As the investigation comes to a close, the team reflects on their experiences and the evidence they gathered. They conclude that Cripple Creek is a hotspot for paranormal activity and that the spirits they encountered are still present and active in the locations they visited.

Overall, season 7's episode 7 of Ghost Adventures provides a thrilling and spooky investigation into some of Colorado's most haunted locations. Fans of the series and newcomers alike will enjoy the team's approach to investigating and the evidence they gather during their time in Cripple Creek.

From 1901-1981, Wyoming's first state penitentiary served as a virtual death house for as many as 200 inmates. While some of these deaths were the result of state-sanctioned executions, others died from harsh living conditions and the infamously brutal violence that took place behind its cold walls.

Sailors' Snug Harbor

Zak, Nick and Aaron are accompanied by ABC's Nightline to investigate a haunted harbor in Staten Island. The crews hear phantom noises, and Zak and Nick discover a shadow lurking in the darkness.

Zak, Nick and Aaron head to New Orleans, LA, to investigate a city that's still haunted by the lost souls taken by Hurricane Katrina. From May Baily's Place, once one of New Orleans' most famed brothels, to voodoo queen Bloody Mary's House and the Haunted Mortuary, the guys’ investigation uncovers unsettling paranormal evidence.

Market Street Cinema

Zak, Nick and Aaron head to San Francisco to investigate a century-old theater -- now a strip club and home to a dark entity that stalks women and hurts men.

King's Tavern

Zak, Nick and Aaron make their first trip out to Mississippi to visit the oldest building in Natchez: King's Tavern, home to a legendary bloody dagger. Locals discovered the dagger in the fireplace, and the public has not seen it for over 30 years. People claimed the dagger was used in the murder of the most infamous ghost in the King's Tavern's history, Madeline, the mistress of the tavern’s first owner, Richard King.

Hellfire Caves

Zak, Nick & Aaron explore the Hellfire Caves outside London, England, where they recreate past secret pagan rituals and conjure the spirits of 18th-century English royalty, who are said to still roam the catacombs.

Fort Horsted

Zak, Nick & Aaron are in Kent, England, just southeast of London, hunkering down inside Fort Horsted. The guys recruit locals to conduct a séance to provoke the demonic spirits that terrify visitors at the fort.

Denver Terrors Ghost Tour

Denver terrors boos and booze haunted pub crawl, denver mile-high foodie tour, join us for a mile-high experience of haunting fun.

Denver Terrors takes you through 9 or 14 different haunted sites around the Capitol Hill area, each one is more terrifying than the one before.

Meet your experienced tour guide at the Capitol Building parking lot at 200 E. Colfax at least 15 minutes before your tour’s scheduled departure time. The standard tour takes about an hour and walks you through several landmark locations in the area with spooky stories that your guide will reveal. If you select the extended tour, you will get another 40 minutes of chilling tales and historical locations!

The Denver Terrors walking tour is a great way to see the amazing sites of Denver’s Capitol Hill while also getting your fill of the ghostly atmosphere of the city’s most haunted locations.

While you walk around the city’s impressive Capitol see if you can spot the pickled heads of a notorious outlaw gang that terrorized the town, they’ve been missing since a bounty was collected on their heads since the late 19 th century!

Nearby Cheeseman park today looks like a beautiful open green space for exercise and picnics , but over 2,000 bodies lie under the green grass, after a botched operation to move the old cemetery that lay there. Cheap, flimsy coffins were used, and gravediggers cut corners, dismembering bodies and spreading the pieces into different coffins to save precious space! The dismembered corpses still prowl the park on foggy days and at night, searching for their missing parts.

While genuinely scary this tour is perfect for first-time visitors to Denver, and seasoned locals alike! Plus, it is a family-friendly attraction so everyone can come on a Denver Ghosts tour—your kids, friends, or a date! We’ll make sure that you have an informative, memorable, and slightly terrifying night. Keep in mind that tours fill up quickly, so reserve your spot early through our website.

Mountains, Mischief, and Misfortune

Denver may be well-known for its natural beauty and proximity to the Rocky Mountains, but most people don’t talk about what lurks behind the city’s tourist-friendly façade.  As you walk around Denver’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood , also known as “Millionaire’s Row,” you will see the great mansions of industrialists, greedy politicians, and the cutthroat news barons. These men made the city what it is today, but they also left their spirits behind to torment and be tormented forevermore.

Denver Terrors will take you to these historical and haunted locations like the Capitol building, the Sheedy Mansion, and the Newhouse Hotel, and you will learn all about the ghoulish, terrifying, and sometimes flirtatious spirits that haunt the area.

Find out where the inimitable and unsinkable Molly Brown, aspiring socialite and one of the most famous survivors of the Titanic sinking, might still show her face. Her apparition still entertains society’s finest and tries to pretend she fits in. In another nearby location, hear how a scandalous affair led to a tragic suicide that ended up closing one of the area’s most popular hotels that used to welcome new arrivals to the city.

Many people come to Denver looking peace and natural serenity that they craved, far above the hustle of the East and West coasts, however, the darkness of human nature still crept into the corners of even this serene city. Your night-time trip through the scandalous past of Denver’s wealthy elite, as well as a few tales of working-class tragedy, will help you understand that even in Queen City when the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, and you feel that familiar flutter in the pit of your stomach, you will know the true terror of the Mile High City.

What draws the supernatural to Denver?

For a city that so often highlights the natural world’s beauty, Denver also has a strong connection to the super-natural. Our tour offers an uncompromising look at what makes Denver such a compelling haunted location. It’s quiet here in Denver, with only 600,000 living souls in the metro area, but it’s still the most populous city in Colorado. This draws many people looking for the quiet and to escape the pressure of coastal life, only to slowly realize that sometimes you cannot run away from your problems. Maybe bad luck haunts the natives too, as it seems that both locals and those from far away make up the ghosts of Denver and make it such a hotbed for paranormal activity.

The Croke-Patterson-Campbell house, for example, a regular stop on the Denver Terrors tour, became so riddled with ghosts that during a recent renovation, no guards would stay for more than a couple of nights. Eventually, guard dogs were employed, until one night a dog threw itself from a second-floor window plunging to its death, chased by who knows which of the resident spirits!

The Capitol Hill area’s faded luxury only adds to the feeling of loss humming in the background of each picturesque scene around the city. Sure, you can read about the tragedy and failure that underlie the Mile High City’s beautiful exterior, but experiencing its horrifying truth in person, on the very streets that the grizzly events took place on, and at night, will help make you feel like you are a part of the city’s otherworldly and macabre history.

Reserve your tour today and experience the side of Denver that you won’t see in the gorgeous postcards.

With so many tours and activities to choose from Denver, how do you choose which ones to book?

You need a crash course in the history of Denver, Colorado

The gold rush that started Denver, Colorado soon petered out, but the city found new life as a supply hub for new mines in the nearby Rocky Mountains. Add in an oil and gas boom, a militarily strategic location, and you soon have a boom town with enough money and opportunity to lure the future ghosts of Denver to their untimely ends in buildings up and down the city.

Take a whistle-stop ride through Denver’s history on a route around ‘Millionaire’s Row,’ in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The characters that built houses and often died in them illustrate the great themes and outsized personalities that shaped this spectacular city exactly one mile above sea level.

For example, the Sheedy Mansion, home of a hard-living Irishman who became Denver’s most ruthless and notorious debt collector and president of the Colorado National Bank, he was so disliked by the people of Denver that his death has barely mourned. This house holds many tales of hauntings, of people toiling unjustly for Sheedy, who perhaps roams the streets still reliving the human misery he caused.

You want something the whole family can do in Denver

The route that the standard Denver Terrors tour takes is just over 1 mile, easily walkable for even the youngest ghost enthusiasts. Your professional and capable tour guides are local experts and deliver 8 stories of the haunted histories of Denver that are suitable for the whole family.

For example, The Peabody-Whitehead Mansion is the site of many a failed restaurant, all of them dogged by the many resident spirits that won’t leave the silverware alone, and on one occasion a ghost was seen pouring a pitcher of beer down the shirt of a waitress! The mansion is so haunted it appeared on an episode of TV show Ghost Adventures where many spirits were found, especially in the dark and creepy basement.

If you have even more desire to see the places where the spooky tales of Denver’s dark side are, add the extended tour while booking your tour, this extra haunt adds another 4 haunted locations to your route, taking the ghostly wander to just over 1.5 miles.

You don’t Believe in ghosts, but are giving the supernatural a chance

Even if you aren’t convinced by the grim stories of Denver’s hauntings and take the stories with a pinch of salt, you will still be left with an insightful tour of the history and personalities that made Denver the city it is today. For example, you will hear about the good work of the gentle, lovelorn ghost of Madge Smiley Reynolds has often been seen pacing the stairs of a modest house on millionaires row, a notable social advocate for the poor and unjustly treated in Denver, she was also friendly with not one but two of the local newspaper owners, having a romantic relationship with Frederick Bonfils, the owner of the Denver Post . They would often ride together on horseback through the wild parts of Denver. The thought of her ghost waiting still to hear the clip-clop of her lovers’ horse approaching down the street is enough to melt the heart of the staunchest non-believer.

No one from Denver Terrors is going to try and change your mind about the echos of extraordinary lives through time. All we seek to do is layout the dramatic and authentic stories from the history books and the confirmed accounts of what people have seen and felt in the places where those outsize personalities lived their famous lives. The rest is up to you. We will say we have had guests and guides experience creepy sensations that they can’t quite explain many times before.

You are sure to enjoy the well-told stories of ghostly hauntings and terrifying happenings up in the cold mountain air of Denver. Even here in these peaceful surroundings, bad things do happen, and ghosts abound if you choose to be receptive to their pleas.

In Denver and Not Sure of What to Do?

Denver is a great destination, it has world-class museums, a zoo, and botanical gardens, the famous Coors Brewery , and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. With the mountains casting their shadows on the city’s doorsteps, there are hundreds of outdoor pursuits available. But you can’t do most of those things at night. After a day of fun, if you want to keep the good times going, perhaps after a dinner at one of Denver’s great restaurants, a wander around town is one thing you might consider. Why not take the simple extra step of joining the Denver Terrors tour and absorbing some local history, and some spooky tales at places that hold horrid stories and0 ghostly hauntings.

The entertaining and knowledgeable guides of Denver Terrors love relating the history and hauntings of their hometown. Stories like the checkered history of the Newhouse hotel, built after the Silver Crash of 1893 by a German immigrant, who christened it the Hesse Hotel. The place became notorious for bad behavior and ended up changing its name after World War II to revitalize its image and avoid anti-German sentiment. However, it soon fell into disrepair and became a half-way house, the tales of death and depravity would fill a large book, it’s cleaned up its act now but the bad energy lingers on in the many tales of hauntings at the hotel today.

You’re on a tight schedule in Denver

In Denver for the weekend and looking for one of the best attractions in the Mile-high City?  Your days may be filled with one of the many things to do here, but what about the nights?  If you want to get the most out of your time here in the Queen City of the High Plains, a Denver Terrors ghost tour is at the ideal time of day to be entertaining, learn about the back story of this fascinating city, and still get a good night sleep as well!

Tours last just over an hour and take in some classic sights of Downtown Denver, the Capitol, millionaires row, and Colfax Avenue’s vibrant bustle . Did you know Colfax Avenue is named after Schuler Colfax, local politician and one time Vice President of the United States? He was a founder member of the Republican Party and author of the Thirteenth Amendment (abolishing slavery). He resigned in disgrace for taking cash and stock from the Union Pacific Railroad while they were seeking support to build the transcontinental railroad that brought prosperity and growth to Denver.

Hear more about this and many other tales from the city, its residents, and their ghosts on the Denver Terrors tour.

Get an insiders look at the Denver culture

Ghosts from the past are unique to the places they haunt; each disembodied spirit is a victim of their time’s unique circumstances and their particular life on this earth. Denver is no different. Each entertaining tale of haunting and human misadventure we relate along the gentle walk of Denver Terrors gives you insight into the history, character, and events of Denver’s fascinating past.

Locals take decades just to skim the stories we will tell you on the easy route of just over one mile. All our deeply researched stories spring straight from the history books. They take on a new life every time they are told, gaining new meaning as the past lessons teach us all about mistakes that others have paid a heavy price for making.

Like the tale of the tragic robbery that claimed the lives of four honest men on the Father’s Day Massacre, at the ‘Cash Register’ Building, also known as the Wells Fargo Centre.   Their ghosts haunt the vault and the spooky basement to this day. Or the tale of the Donald Fletcher House, owned by a minister turned real estate baron who fled the town leaving the locals to pay his debts. The town pulled through and changed the building’s name and eventually sold it to the Knights of Colombia. The charity’s staff often see the ghost of one of Donald Fletcher’s servants toiling still, waiting for their masters’ return.

Be a tourist in your own backyard

Being a Tourist in your home city is a welcome break that is good value. Stay at the haunted Newhouse Hotel and have dinner somewhere on vibrant Colfax Avenue, then stroll around the corner to the starting point of the Denver Terrors tour and learn something new about the Queen City of Colorado. Staycations have been around for a while, and you will often find locals on the Denver Terrors tour. They often add interesting details to stops on the tour.

Or maybe you might stay at the Grosvenor Arms apartments, which are as splendid on the inside as they are on the outside, but watch out, they are haunted in several ways. A heavy breathing ghost in the attic storage areas, research determined it is the ghost of a flapper dancer who died at a legendary party here in the 20s, the ghost playfully turns off water and outlets. Or the ghostly couple destined to be forever apart, he waits anxiously in the lobby, visible only out of the corner of your eye in the Lobby Mirror, while she stalks the 8th-floor laundry room, eternally preparing to meet her beau. Find out the stories behind these ghosts you never knew existed on your own doorstep.

13 Abandoned Ghost Towns in Colorado and How to Get There

This website may contain affiliate links and we may be compensated (at no cost to you!).

Nothing is more fun than spooking adventures and exploring ghost towns in Colorado!

Colorado has a long and storied history of rough riders and rebels who started towns in the Rockies, and many sought the treasures hidden in these mountains: gold and silver.

Our wild west state has seen its share of boom towns and financial busts, and reportedly has as many as 1,500 ghost towns around the state.

More conservative estimates put that number closer to 600.

Either way, with enough exploration, you’re sure to find your share of abandoned buildings, derelict mine shafts, and ghost towns in Colorado.

1. Ghost Towns of the Rockies Private Tour

georgetown-loop-railroad

There’s no better way to explore some of Colorado’s Old West Gold Rush towns than on this private tour through the Rockies .

This 6-hour private driving tour includes time to visit and explore some of the most historic and haunted ghost towns in the state.

You and your group will visit mountain towns including:

  • Central City
  • Idaho Springs

Not to mention, many other popular destinations including the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder.

You’ll even have the opportunity to ride on the scenic Georgetown Loop Railroad, all included with your ticket.

This ghost town tour of the Rockies includes private transportation and pickup, as well as time for a hiking tour.

For this next section, we’re including ghost towns in northern Colorado that are near Denver and Boulder.

While most former mining towns around Denver went on to be major cities, some Colorado ghost towns still can be found outside the metro area.

2. Teller City

teller city colorado

Silver was discovered southwest of Gould, Colorado, near Walden back in 1879. And just a few years later the town of Teller City was booming!

At one time, it had as many as 1,500 residents. But these days Teller City has zero residents.

In addition to the reported 27 saloons, there was a hotel called the Yates House Hotel which had 40 rooms.

However, silver lost value just a few years later, and by 1902 Teller City was a ghost town.

Located in Roosevelt National Forest, a popular camping destination, Teller City makes a fun and spooky stop for a daytrip or mid-day activity.

Most of the town’s historic buildings are scattered around the woods, so bring your boots and trek around for an hour to two!

How to get to Teller City:

If you want to camp or hike near Teller City, here is how to get there. Access Teller City from Rand via Highway 125 or from Gould via Highway 14.

From downtown Gould, take County Road 21 for Roosevelt National Forest access, and follow signs for Teller City.

This ten-mile dirt road is best traversed with a high-clearance 4×4 vehicle.

arrow ghost town in colorado

Close to the Winter Park ski area and tucked in at the top of Rollins Pass is the town of Arrow.

First called Arrowhead, then Arrow, and now a ghost town. Arrow is the only town on this list that was not made popular for mining in the mountains.

Originally founded as a railroad and lumber camp, Arrow was a thriving town of thousands of residents until it burned to the ground in 1920.

These days you can still see where the town was located thanks to the old railroad beds.

If you’ve got a metal detector, bring it along! Many coins from the period and other metal artifacts can be found in the area.

How to get to Arrow:

Arrow is on property currently owned by Rendezvous Colorado , so make a stop in their sales office in Winter Park before heading out.

To get there, take US-40 through Winter Park and take the exit for Forest Road 80.

Head north on Forest Road 80, also called Corona Pass Road, and continue going right to stay on USFS 80 til you arrive in the town.

4. Dearfield

st elmo colorado ghost town

One of the most unique ghost towns in Colorado is Dearfield. This mining town was founded as an all-black settlement by Boulder entrepreneur Oliver T. Jackson in 1910.

Dearfield’s claim to fame is that it was one of the only Black and African-American settlements in Colorado in the early 1900s.

Though the first few years were rough, there were as many as 700 residents in Dearfield by 1921.

The town continued to grow until the Great Depression caused agriculture to suffer and the town shrank through the 1940s.

Today, you can still see what remains of the town’s diner, gas station, and founder Jackson’s home.

Denver’s Black American West Museum worked to preserve the town in the late 1990s. Dearfield is now a Colorado Registered Historic Landmark .

How to get to Dearfield:

From Greeley, head south on Highway 85 to Garden City. Then head east on Highway 34 for 24 miles to get to Dearfield.

Next on the list are ghost towns in central Colorado that are near smaller towns like Buena Vista and Aspen.

These scenic ghost towns in Colorado can be found near popular skiing destinations so you can spend a day skiing and then explore the old gold rush history. 

5. Saint Elmo

dearfield colorado

Of all the ghost towns on our list, St. Elmo is one of the best preserved and most easily accessed. It’s located just a few miles west of Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort.

Of the 43 buildings that remain in Chalk Creek Canyon, you will find a saloon, courthouse and jail, mercantile, and many private homes.

Visitors have said that walking down the main street feels like stepping onto the set of an old movie. And in true ghost town fashion, Saint Elmo is said to be haunted.

Gold and silver brought miners to what was then called Forrest City in 1880. By 1881, Saint Elmo was an incorporated city of about 2,000 (mostly male) residents.

St. Elmo boasted many saloons and dance halls, as you might expect from a rowdy miner town of men!

After train services to Chalk Creek Canyon stopped in 1926, the population dwindled and by the 1950s the town was abandoned.

Today, this Colorado ghost town is not quite empty!

Stop by the St. Elmo General Store for souvenirs, antiques, and a snack or soda. You can also rent the 3-person cabin and spend a night in the ghost town!

Or spend the weekend in St. Elmo by booking a room at the Ghost Town Guest House , a bed and breakfast!

This quaint B&B serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is an ideal hub for your ghost town and hiking explorations.

How to get to St. Elmo:

Take Highway 24 south from Buena Vista and look for Country Road 162. It is on your right, just after you pass Nathrop.

Then take Co Rd 162 for 19 miles to Saint Elmo. And there’s plenty to discover near St. Elmo too.

Bring your hiking boots and stop by Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, Agnes Vaille Falls (a short hike will take you to the falls), the ruins of Hancock and Mary Murphey Mine.

4X4 drivers can take Tincup Pass to explore the ghost towns of Pitkin, Tincup, and Ohio City.

6. Vicksburg

vicksburg colorado

Another well-preserved ghost town in Colorado is Vicksburg. It’s about an hour and 45 minutes from Aspen.

The town of Vicksburg started to grow in the 1860s and 70s when prospectors were flocking to the canyon area in search of gold, silver, and lead.

Vick Keller, who the town is named after, owned the general store. And at one time, as many as 700 people lived in Vicksburg.

The town became big enough to have its own blacksmith, school house, two hotels and two saloons!

While this town is a ghost town by definition, it is not totally without life. Most of these buildings have been continually occupied since they were built, and are in great condition.

The most notable buildings to check out are the cabins and a small museum that are still standing.

The ghost town of Vicksburg still has some buildings that have even been nicely restored to preserve the history.

How to get to Vicksburg:

Take highway 24 north from Buena Vista, or if you’re coming from Leadville head south, until you reach County Road 390/Clear Creek Reservoir.

Take CR 390 past the lake, and it’s 9 miles to Vicksburg. Continue another 3 miles to nearby Winfield, another ghost town, where the 2WD portion of the road ends.

You can get plenty of adventuring under your belt here by continuing on to one of the 4 other ghost towns nearby: Winfield, and two smaller towns, Rockdale and Beaver City.

7. Independence

independence ghost town in colorado

This ghost town is well-preserved but is only accessible during certain months of the year. Independence is located 16 miles east of Aspen.

And at 11,000 feet in elevation, October through May sees many, many feet of snow and makes the town inaccessible during these months.

Independence was originally founded in 1879 as Beldon tent camp, and over the years, this town has had many names.

But when the miners struck gold, the name “Independence” was the one that stuck. Between 1881 and 1882, over $190,000 in gold was mined.

The following year, however, only $2,000 worth of gold was mined. This town that once swelled to over 1,500 residents soon lost population to larger, milder, Aspen.

After an epic blizzard in 1899, all but one resident were driven out, and by 1912, Independence was a ghost town.

Today, you can walk among the remaining buildings, including the general store, stable, houses, and the Farwell Stamp Mill where the mined metals were processed.

Some buildings are little more than a facade and a foundation, so take care as you go near the more dilapidated structures or venture inside.

How to get to Independence:

Head south on highway 82 from Aspen for about 16 miles. Independence is located along part of the seasonal Independence Pass, so plan your trip according.

And always check the weather before you take off.

If you’re coming from the other direction, Independence is about four miles west of the summit.

8. Ashcroft

ashcroft colorado ghost town

Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the town of Ashcroft is one of the biggest cities in Colorado to become a ghost town.

Once home to nearly 2,500 people, Ashcroft was once a bustling city boasting 6 hotels and 20 saloons.

Founded in 1880 following the discovery of silver in the area, Ashcroft was actually bigger than nearby Aspen and closer to the railroad in Crested Butte.

But the mines dried up in 1885 just as a rich strike was discovered in Aspen.

These days Ashcroft is maintained by the Aspen Historical Society .

Now, the roads of Ashcroft have returned to the wild and the remaining wooden structures make up a plenty ghostly main street.

Many of the buildings are in quite good condition, and are very photogenic in this rugged mountain setting, so bring a camera!

How to get to Ashcroft:

Out of Aspen, take Highway 82 west. At the traffic circle, take the 3rd exit onto Castle Creek Road and continue for eleven miles to the town-site of Ashcroft.

Finally, we’re ending the list with some ghost towns in south Colorado that are near towns like Silverton and Telluride.

If you are looking for some abandon ghost towns in Colorado, there are some southern gems near the Continental Divide. 

9. Animas Forks

animas forks colorado

At 11,200 feet high in the San Juan Mountains is the ghost town of Animas Forks . It’s located about 12 miles northeastern of Silverton, Colorado.

Founded in 1873 where three nearby rivers met (including the Animas River), this town was first called Three Forks of the Animas.

By 1876, Animas Forks was a thriving mining city.

At this time the town had a hotel, a saloon, a post office, and a general store. And by 1883 there were about 450 residents.

There was even a local paper called the Animas Forks Pioneer!

Though mining brought plenty of people to Animas Forks, the harsh conditions of winter at 11,000+ feet altitude made winter living nearly impossible.

In 1884, a 23-day-long blizzard covered the town with so much snow, those who were in town had to travel from building to building by snow tunnel.

After this, most residents left the harsh winter environment in favor of Silverton. By the 1910s, the population was dwindling and Animas Forks was a ghost by the 1920s.

Today, several of the original buildings in Animas Forks are still standing along the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway.

Due to the high altitude and rough terrain, the best way to explore the region is by Jeep or other high-clearance 4×4.

In summer months, 2-wheel drive cars with good clearance may be able to make it from Silverton to Animas Forks.

But the road beyond Animas Forks through Engineer Pass to Lake City is 4-wheel drive only.

Interpretive brochures and maps of the area are provided in the parking area. Take care when walking inside or near these fragile old buildings!

How to get to Animas Fork:

From Silverton, take County Road 2 for about 12 miles until you reach Animas Forks Ghost Town.

If you’re coming from Ouray, take US 550 for 4 miles south to Co Rd 18 and go left for 4.3 miles.

Continue onto Co Rd 17 for 2.7 miles, then onto Co Rd 2 for 2 more miles into town.

Always check the weather conditions and condition of your vehicle before you go exploring.

Vehicles can get stuck in some sticky situations, so exercise caution and don’t be one who needs a rescue!

alta colorado town

Between Telluride and Rico is the small ghost town of Alta, Colorado . With an elevation of 11,800 feet high this mining town was home to a few hundred people.

And from 1877 to 1948, it was a hub for mining activity in the area and originally known as the Gold King area.

When World War II almost brought the town back to life the town’s population began shrinking until the 1940s.

Then, the mill burned down in 1948 sealing this town’s fate to become a ghost city.

Most remarkable, Alta was the first place to use Nikola Tesla’s AC transmission system.

Switching to electricity saved the mines a lot of effort, as the 4-mile pack mule route to get coal was no longer needed.

A power plant was built in Alta and the whole town once ran on electricity.

The remains of several original buildings and fences are still standing today. And you can tour what remains of the town during the warmer months from May to October.

While 2WD vehicles may be able to make the trek, 4x4s are recommended, especially if you want to continue on to Alta Lakes.

How to get to Alta:

Follow W 145 Spur Hwy/CO-145 west out of Telluride, and at the traffic circle, take the 2nd exit for CO 145 S.

Turn left onto Alta Lakes Road, about 6 miles south of Telluride, and continue for about 4 miles into Alta.

carson colorado ghost town

High-altitude mining brought hundreds to the city of Carson , but rough winters along the Continental Divide eventually sent them packing.

Carson is almost directly situated on the Continental Divide. And due to its location the town is the hardest to access but also one of the best preserved ghost towns in Colorado.

It’s always been hard to get to, which made getting resources for mining (and bringing home what was found!) very tough.

Carson was built at 11,600 feet in 1889 and had a wagon road to Lake City. Gold and silver were both mined in Carson. And at one time, the town had as many as 500 residents.

But the unforgiving landscape eventually drove away even the toughest old miners. Then, after the turn of the century Carson had become a ghost town.

These days, you’ll need a 4×4 vehicle to visit what remains of the buildings. The town of Carson is located on private property but the owners allow visitors.

Once in town, you can walk among the surprisingly well-preserved buildings nestled among the trees where the town once thrived.

How to get to Carson:

Unless you’re prepared to make like a miner and get a donkey, 4 wheel drive is a requirement to reach Carson.

To get there from Lake City, take the Silver Thread Byway, Highway 149, Co Rd 30 (the Alpine Loop). Then follow Wager Gulch trail to Carson.

Note: Don’t confuse Carson with Old Carson, another mining city on the Pacific side of the Divide. Old Carson is probably older, and was built south of the mountain.

12. Russell Gulch

Like most ghost towns on this list, Russell Gulch was founded on the back of the Colorado gold rush near Idaho Springs. The town would live and die with the booms and busts of the gold rush. 

When gold was found in Russell Gulch, in June of 1859, it took only three short months before nearly 900 men moved into the valley and mining operations began.

By 1860, the town had swelled to 2,500 residents and brick buildings started popping up, many of which still stand to this day. 

By 1930, the population had shriveled to a mere 75 residents. When there was a moratorium against gold mining during WWII, it was the final nail in the coffin for Russell Gulch. 

Nowadays, Russell Gulch is a picturesque ghost town with many of the old structures peppered throughout the landscape. 

The most notable thing about this defunct old town now is the frisbee golf course that runs right through the ghost town.

Which lands it high in the running for one of the most beautiful disc golf courses in the world.

How to get to Russell Gulch:

There are two main ways to get to Russell Gulch.

The first way is safe for nearly any vehicle as it’s a paved road from I-70. Take exit 243 to Central City Parkway then left onto Lake Gulch Road. 

Go a short distance till you reach Virginia Canyon Road, take a left. Continue on until you reach a fork in the road. 

Follow this to the left onto Upper Russell Gulch Road and follow this until you reach Russell Gulch. 

The second way to Russell Gulch is from Idaho Springs and should only be tried in the warmer months and if you have a 4WD vehicle. 

The street’s official name is Virginia Canyon Road. But it is more commonly (and aptly) referred to as Oh My God Road. 

You’ll head north, up the mountain and down into Russell Gulch for about 5 miles before spotting the town.

13. Crystal

crystal mill hiking

The town of Crystal, Colorado was named for the Crystal River that runs through the center of town. 

It was established for mining camps in 1881 after discoveries of silver and gold in the surrounding mountains. 

In order to access the land for mining, thousands of acres were set on fire. To this day, the fires have altered the growth of trees and vegetation in the area. 

After the town built a supply power mill using the water from the Crystal River production of silver and iron mining continued to decline. And by 1915 the town’s population dried up and dwindled completely.

Today, Crystal is mostly abandoned and is only home to a few residents during the summer months. 

In 1985, the owner of Crystal deeded the land and ownership of the town to the government of Gunnison County where it remains free to explore.

How to get to Crystal, Colorado:

The main way to get to Crystal is via the town of Marble, Colorado, which is also near the iconic Crystal Mill . 

Jump onto Interstate 70 and head west into the mountains as if you’re going to Aspen. Turn onto Highway 82 south and drive until you come to Carbondale. Here you’ll connect to Highway 133 and continue driving south until you come to Marble, Colorado.

The drive to Crystal and the famous Crystal Mill is rough, unpaved and requires a 4-wheel drive vehicle to access. Or you can hike for several hours on foot.

However, once you arrive at Crystal spend some time exploring the abandoned structures and rustic architectures. It’s a quintessential Colorado ghost town that is very photogenic.

2023 UPDATE: The Crystal Mill is now closed to the public indefinitely and isn’t expected to reopen any time soon.

What defines a Ghost Town?

A ghost town is any city, town, or village that has been deserted and is no longer occupied.

Towns may become ghost towns after the industries that once supported the population dries up or slowly dies away.

Some ghost towns are created after natural or man-made disasters like floods, fires, or government intervention (especially in towns with uncontrolled lawlessness!).

A key feature of a ghost town is that the structures and buildings of the town remain intact to be seen by visitors.

While most ghost towns are left to eventually fall down completely, to be a ghost town there must be something left at the site.

Over the years, hundreds of cities were founded in Colorado. And many were created to support mining efforts.

ghost towns in colorado

Some mining towns, like Boulder, Denver, Aspen, Durango, and Telluride, become bigger cities even after the mining boom has passed.

But others, like Cripple Creek , couldn’t sustain their populations when the prospecting failed, or the nation’s economy moved on to other industries.

And so Colorado is left with the dwindling remains of a wild west heritage that ended more than a lifetime ago.

On this list, we’ve found the best ghost towns in Colorado we think you just can’t miss!

Top tips for visiting a ghost town

If you are planning a visit to a Colorado ghost town, here are some tips to make your trip epic.

Prepare for going off road

Most ghost towns are located in very rural areas and are accessible via dirt or gravel roads.

And because most ghost towns became ghosts well before wide-spread use of concrete sidewalks, most of the pathways and trails in town will be dirt.

As you walk through these mostly-abandoned areas, take care to leave no trace. Stick to any established walking paths to protect the wildlife and any private property.

Beware of remote locations

While some ghost towns are a short distance from larger cities, all ghost towns are ghost for a reason.

Use caution when planning a trip into the backwoods where cell service may be limited or nonexistent, roads can be treacherous, and few other visitors will be headed your way.

Always check the weather and road conditions, especially in the mountains!

Be gentle and leave no trace

Most ghost towns are totally unoccupied and unmaintained. That means it’s up to us to leave no trace.

This way we can continue to enjoy the experience and learn about history at these iconic Colorado locations.

Any garbage you bring must be packed out. Pick up any trash or debris you might find along your way.

Treat the buildings with respect! Don’t destroy them or carry away parts of them.

Leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures so others can enjoy these ghost towns too!

Be responsible about pets and potties

As these are mostly unmonitored sites, there are no bathroom facilities at these destinations.

Some locations do not allow dogs while others do not have policies about them, so be responsible pet owners.

Wildlife in the area may be surprised by your dog. Pick up after your pet and be polite if you meet other visitors along the way.
