  2. Hi Drew,

    I was just reading through your blog, and it's very interesting. I'm working on a network show and am looking for some possible locations to film for our show. Would you contact me at lhoeppner@painless.tv
    Thanks

  3. Just to let you know - you have repeats and some "incorrect" information.

    Morey Middle School in Denver - the students honestly believe that there is the ghost of a girl in the BASEMENT gym/locker room area, and will not go down there alone, not even for gym class. The story they tell is of a girl who drown in the building (all I can think is she fell in the showers, which are of old marble and have high water retention sides) and knocks on the walls, NOT wanders the building. BTW, there is knocking, if your imagination is good - the floor above the one gym is wood and people walk on it. And the heating system is old and knocks. But there is still knocking.

    The Platte Canyon High School story is incorrect and merges a very sad and horrible story with a legend that was around when I was a kid. The rape and murder of the girl is the Emily Keyes story, is recent history and was done by an outsider at the NEW school - there are no ghosts from that. The supposed ghost of the faculty member who hung himself for unknown reasons is in the OLD school - now an administration building for the district.

    You have the Lumber Baron listed twice - as in Boulder and in Denver. It is in Denver, was open for Doors Open Denver in 2010, and is a lovely building. The original news story about the murders can be found in the Denver Post - much earlier than the 2003 story. It's simple research to find it - the folks on 5th floor DPL will happily help you find it.

    Otherwise, good collection you have here - but you've missed a bunch. Central City does a great ghost tour the next several weekends- it's an amusing tour, we did it two years ago. You'd like it. Fort Collins has one too.

    And oh yeah, someone LOVES cigars in the old man's room in Molly Brown house - but the staff won't admit it.

  4. I am the former owner of The Royal Hotel. I can confirm that the hotel is indeed haunted by I would say a friendly ghost. When we first purchased the hotel I was up stairs cleaning at 2 am. I heard footsteps walking down the hall behind me. They sounded like cowboy boots,stopping directly behind me. As I turned around there was no one there. The hotel was not open yet and my husband was downstairs. Many hotel guests have told me stories of a women who also haunts the hotel. They have seen her sitting on the bed dress in old fashioned clothing. We have installed cameras in the hotel and you can see nightly orbs flying through out the building. The orbs seem to follow people around in the bar. It is kind of cool to see. I have never felt uneasy there and was alone lots of time in the building. I heard a lot of walking around upstairs. The building was built in 1904. It has had many owners and all say it is haunted by Rufus, who supposedly died there of influenza or in a bar fight. The building was once used as a mock hospital during a influenza out break. There have been many articles written about the hotel being haunted.
    I personally attest to that.
