Western Colorado Locations Believed to Be Haunted
Are you a fan of paranormal shows? I watch way too many. I find them fascinating. It started with Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures back around 2005. Since then, Dead Files, Kindred Spirits, and Destination Fear came into existence.
When I lived in Helena, Montana from 2014 to 2015, I went down to Butte Montana, and to a place called the Copper Queen. I was in one of the rooms on a tour and my hair was pulled in the room full of dolls, I will never forget that.
Butch's Cafe in Delta
So I dove into a list of places on the Western Slope. I've talked about the Museum of the Mountain west just outside of Montrose before. But did you know about Butch's Cafe in Delta, which recently closed its doors? The past owner, Mike, has been seen there. They have been investigated many times.
Pondy Pool Hall in Cedaredge
Just 30 miles from Montrose at the Pondy Pool Hall in Cedaredge, Colorado, which is such a fun place, I went there after a round of golf with my husband. The staff claims to have heard ghostly voices and doors slamming on their own and glimpses of apparitions.
Bross Hotel Bed and Breakfast in Paonia
Just down the road is Bross Hotel Bed and Breakfast in Paonia. It was built in 1906. The hotel is known to be haunted by the original owner W.T. Bross' mother. When the hotel was refurbished in the 1990s her spirit was uneasy and seen or heard by many guests and employees. They say she is a friendly ghost.
The Ouray Museum in Ouray
A few more haunted places are in Ouray, Colorado. The Ouray Museum is said to be haunted by a male patient who died when the building was a hospital for a short time. The apparition is mainly seen by male visitors. Footsteps are heard also in the building after dark.
Beaumont Hotel in Ouray
The historic 1886 Beaumont Hotel in Ouray just 33.4 miles from Montrose has reports of a ghostly woman who walks around at 2:15 a.m. Every quarter of the moon. Legend states she was murdered by her Husband and is looking for him.
