This theatre first opened in 1927, and has since been plagued by inexplicable noises, specters and freezing cold corridors – particularly when audience members are leaving. Cold breezes, balls of light and a strange voice calling out people’s names have also been reported here.

Since opening its doors in 1892, the second longest running hotel in Denver has played host to strange phone calls from empty rooms, spectral voices when no one is around, and even the occasional sighting of an old train conductor. 

5. Imperial Hotel, Cripple Creek, Colorado

The women’s washroom at this hotel is said to host the apparition of a woman in a white dress, rumored to be a guest who died by suicide at the hotel many years ago. Witnesses also report seeing the door open and close and the lights flicker on and off.

This lodge is said to be home to several spirits, including a foggy black apparition that moves across the grounds and a figure cloaked in black that can be seen in the reflections of mirrors.

Employees at this 1889 luxury hotel have reported hearing laughter, chatter and the clinking of glasses in vacant rooms. A woman known as “The Lady in Blue” is said to spend most of her time in Room 302, where she once lived, but she can also be caught pinching male patrons’ rears if they sit at her stool in the hotel saloon. 

9. Pittock Mansion, Portland, Oregon

This 16,000 square-foot mansion was built by Henry and Georgiana Pittock, and remained the family home until 1964, at which time it was converted into a historical museum. Today, there are stories of visitors capturing photos of a strange woman in the reflections of mirrors. There are also reports of furniture moving, as well as windows closing and locking. 

10. Molly Brown House, Denver, Colorado

Staffers at this Denver landmark have reportedly seen dark shadows snaking around rooms, heard piano keys thrumming on their own, and smelled fresh cigar smoke in the air – which makes sense, since Mr. Brown was a devoted smoker and reportedly still haunts the place.

11. The White House B&B, Skagway, Alaska

This bed and breakfast used to be a hospital and daycare, which might explain why witnesses have reported seeing a ghostly young woman at the foot of guests’ beds or confronting children.
