Occasionally, a passer- by will witness a light go on or off in the small upstairs windows of this pale structure in a busy district of the city. Party goers and Old Town revelers can be seen celebrating the end of a week with a beer and laugh in the restaurant and bar below. The noise and excitement radiating from the building makes it a magnet for residents and visitors wanting to unwind, and the business has become a familiar haunt in the Old Town area. But, this building hides secrets so tragic and heart-breaking that even a Guinness and a good Irish joke can’t bury them.
Built in 1905, this structure was a place of much activity early in its day, as guests from Cheyenne and Denver would frequent its rooms. The bottom floor served as a “speak easy” and restaurant. Classified ads at the time would continuously ask for “chamber maids” or girls to work on the upper floors. A scandalous affair also took place in the second and third floor rooms which resulted in a very high profile divorce. By 1917, an army recruiting office and foot doctor had offices in the top floors.
This building has a very mysterious and haunted past. It is rumored that a murder took place in the rooms above. And not only does the victim still haunts the premises, but several others as well…
Learn who those “others” are and their unfortunate stories as Haunted History After Dark takes you to this location and sheds a light on its mysterious and tragic past.
