Haunted Cripple Creek and Teller County

Home to the last gold rush in America, Teller County attracted a slew of peculiar characters. And many never left.  A Victor Hotel regular named Eddie met his untimely death when he tumbled down the elevator shaft.  A female apparition clad in Victorian clothing appears on the stairs of the Palace Hotel.  A closed tunnel on Gold Camp Road is said to echo with the sounds of screaming children.  And lingering spirits are still prisoners at the old Teller County Jail.
