The author of The Haunted Heart of Denver goes beyond the city limits to investigate the supernatural surroundings of Colorado’s capital. In Denver, the spirits aren’t just penned to the city center. No, even the suburbs and outlying cities have the kind of history that could give quite a fright to the unsuspecting. Folks might be surprised to learn that a house in northwest Denver comes fully equipped with a basement theater—and spectral performers as well—and former phantom residents still roam their old homestead in what is now an Adams County open space. From Westminster’s Bowles House Museum, where even the ghosts were involved in renovations, to Littleton’s Melting Pot restaurant, a former Carnegie library that offers diners a side of the supernatural, accidental ghost hunter Kevin Pharris explores further tales of supernatural haunts and unexplained phenomena surrounding the Mile High City. Includes photos!
