Even though this photo was taken on Jefferson Street last week in Fort Collins, it isn’t a group of die-hard Occupiers. And it isn’t a family photo (although Grace and I felt like family after spending a spooky night with these very courageous guests on the streets of Old Town). This was Haunted History After Dark tour’s biggest group ever! We hosted 27 awesome and brave participants for our Saturday night tour.  We want to give an ENORMOUS thank you to all of these ghost busters! We loved all of you (like family).
Sarah
Auntie Stone
Sarah was especially interested in the history of the old Lindell Mills which is now Ranchway Feeds on Willow and Lincoln. The mill was actually the brain child of early resident’s Auntie Stone and Henry Clay Peterson. These two entrepreneurs built it way back in 1868 in order to grind the wheat, corn and oats that early farmers were harvesting, into marketable flour to sell to Denver and other neighboring cities. It is a true relic of Fort Collins and is one of the structures that kept Fort Collins growing. Way to go to Jane for her interest and insight in this particular structure! And thank you Elizabeth Hickok Stone and Henry Peterson for having the fore thought and ingenuity to bring an economy to this early frontier town and keeping it on its feet! It is rumored that one of the large trees in a parking lot just east of Ranchway Feeds is an Oak tree planted by Auntie Stone herself.
Christina Lintz, organizer of the Meet-Up Mingles also brought a fantastic group this last week.  Christina loved the first tour so much that she brought another group of courageous guests. We loved their passion for both the haunted and history of Fort Collins.
As Old Town Fort Collins is very haunted by spirits of the past, we always encourage guests to bring digital recorders, EMF detectors, cameras and whatever they need to get evidence of hauntings in Old Town. On our last Saturday night tour, this brave guest had brought along a phone that could take photos as well as videos. We are still going through those photos and will publish them soon, but what the participant caught was amazing! As local ghost whisperer and medium, Grace, was talking about a specific haunted location on our tour, I stood back to watch what our guest was recording. We saw one spirit in a blue form in front of Grace, then a brown figure formed in front of our crowd. After that we witnessed even another brown entity enter the frame and materialize. The guest turned her camera toward me, and saw an apparition standing just to my left, and the entities were multiplying as we watched.  I immediately got goose bumps.
This guest is Eileen Sake. Eileen is an award winning tour guide with the city. We were so honored to have her on our tour!
Grace and I have been giving tours every week since this last May. We are a grass roots, home grown tour. One of my sole and passions in life is to study the early residents of Fort Collins. Grace is a nationally, well known medium. On our tours and even through just exploring Old Town alone, I myself have caught many orbs and mists, and I have been verbally and physically assaulted by spirits. I processed these events okay with Grace’s help. I thought of myself as de-sensitized…but when I watched the video of this guests recorder live, and saw the enormous amount of spirits that were enveloping our tour, I was seriously shaken up. I had no idea that so much activity surrounded our tours. Although our guests that night were able to witness first -hand the events, and the video, we have not been able to publish it to you as yet. We will try to get this evidence to you soon.
On this tour we had one of the best crowds of ghost busters ever! This young crowd asked some of the best questions we have ever had regarding the haunted and history of Old Town Fort Collins. Thank you so much to our Thursday October 19th group! You were amazing and very brave! Wow! what a beautiful group! Their photos are below.
