A Ghost Walk in…York

I like to do a ghost walk in every city I visit. I’ve done so many + I expect I’ll do more… which is why I’m starting a ghost series on this blog for suggestions + tips for the spookiest activities I find – perhaps in a city near you! My most memorable ghost walks have been in Charleston, Denver, Washington, San Antonio, Boulder, New York and York (arguably the bloodiest history of them all!). Above, a photo as I began my walk on a warm summer evening last year.

I also find it fascinating visiting cemeteries and graveyards in different cities – the most memorable being where Margaret Mitchell (author of Gone With The Wind) is buried in Atlanta. See pictures here of her tombstone.

I can say I have only been haunted once (extremely scary) in Leadville, Colorado. It was at The Delaware Hotel ($130 a night). I also had a creepy experience at The Stanley Hotel in Boulder (where The Shining was written – linked above).

This blog is about my travels and all the magic moments therein, and every now and then I get to write about some magic haunted moments! (lucky you😀) Inspired by all things ghostly, one thing I absolutely love to do in each new city is a ghost walk. (Hint: Check out this ghost walk company). Naturally, I have great stories and recommendations for you.

Hauntings at Stephen King’s Stanley Hotel

Stanley 1
Haunted events have been recorded at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, since as far back as 1911, when Ms. Elizabeth Wilson, a housekeeper, was electrocuted during a lightening storm

Of all the places I’ve travelled to in Colorado, Estes Park seems the most mysterious. In what seems to be the center of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the hotel was opened in 1909.

Molly Brown. She came from humble beginnings, but the ‘Unsinkable’ Molly Brown has gone down in history as the heroine who helped load the lifeboats on the Titanic.

Historic Denver’s Molly Brown House Museum enhances Denver’s unique identity by telling the story of Margaret “Molly” Brown’s activism, philanthropy and passion through educational programs, exhibits, and stewardship.
