Sally and David (far left)) enjoyed their spooky evening with Haunted History After Dark on Saturday. Originally from Michigan, the couple, who now reside in Fort Collins, have taken haunted and historical tours all over the world including Edinburgh and England. The pair asked a lot of fun questions both about the hauntings in the area as well as the history. Grace and Suzy were able to shed some light on many structures and their stories in Old Town and there were lots of “Aha!” moments. Real life haunting experiences and the mysterious history surrounding the early brothels were some of the items that interested the pair, but they enjoyed the entire tour and gave it a thumb’s up at the end.
Regarding real life haunting experiences, while researching the tour locations and going to those places with Grace, I had my own first experience which shook me up pretty good at the time. And now that we are actually giving the tours, I continue to have my own personal encounters both off and on the tour nights, but I feel like I'm getting a little more used to them now. And until Grace can make relative peace with one particular angry entity, we have decided to provide the haunting and the history information for this undisclosed location from across the street. It seems to be working. This last Saturday, Grace had some very fascinating observations to share with the guests regarding the characters who provide the stories for our haunted locations. Those early settlers, business owners, and residents that we talk about during the tour are really the stars of the program. And some of them appear to be very aware of and really enjoying their new found fame, even in the afterlife! Grace let us know that some of the characters are now showing up to her in different locations than where we talk about them. She will be walking through a part of town, not on a tour day, and there pops up one of our “stars” wanting to talk to her. Grace says she tells them, “You need to get back to your place...!” Thanks Grace! Because it wouldn’t be a very “spirited” tour without our ghosts.
