The Brown Palace Hotel - Real Haunted Place
This hotel is said to be the home to several ghosts and has living guests of all sorts from royalty to rock stars. Those who linger in spirit include former employees and guests. One ghost is Denver socialite Mrs. Louise Crawford Hill, who lived in Room 904 from 1940-1955. She has been known to call the switchboard when the room is vacant. Only static is heard on the other end. The ghost even called the switchboard from Room 904 when the room was being renovated and had no phone, furniture or lights. Another one of the hotel's ghosts is an old-fashioned train conductor and the dining room, called Ellyngton's, is haunted by a ghostly string quartet. When an employee caught the formally attired musicians playing in there, he warned them, “You’re not supposed to be in here,” but the ghosts only replied, “Oh, don’t worry about us. We live here.” Some of the other ghosts here include a uniformed waiter in the service elevator, ghostly children who run up and down the halls, and the sound of a crying baby that comes from the boiler room.
