Old Town Haunted History

By Michael Berg


When you think of haunted places this time of year, you typically think of fake/staged haunted houses or corn mazes. However, did you know that there is a realistic, spooky background tied to Fort Collins history that dates back to the 1800s?! There is a network of passageways below Fort Collins’ Old Town District that served a multitude of purposes back when Fort Collins was a horse and buggy town. Remnants from the “old west” and prohibition era can still be experienced today through the Fort Collins Tours company located at 19 Old Town Square. They offer a variety of tours including a horse and buggy ghost tour, speakeasies and spirits tour, old town ghost tours, late night ghost walks, and their haunted pub tour. Tours book up fast, so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP! This is a RamPage recommended spooky season activity.
