Why is Albuquerque So Haunted?

Albuquerque has a long and intriguing history. People have been living in the Albuquerque area for 10,000 years. Ancient rock carvings point to the existence of several native tribes, including the Acoma Pueblo, Apache, and Navajo. These people tread upon these sacred grounds long before the arrival of Spanish settlers in 1540. This vibrant, ancient land has seen countless people pass through, leaving behind stories, struggles, and even lingering spirits.

 

Adding to Albuquerque’s intrigue is its Mexican heritage. Following Mexico’s independence from Spain in 1821, Albuquerque became part of Mexico until the territory was annexed by the United States in 1846. During this time, Albuquerque stood at the crossroads of history, its soil soaked with the blood of political strife. One can’t help but wonder whether the echoes of these conflicts still reverberate through the city’s dark alleys and shadowy corners.

The heart of Albuquerque can be found in Old Town, a vibrant neighborhood with ten blocks of historic adobe buildings that recall the city’s early days as a Western frontier town. Much of Old Town’s early history has been lost in time. The cemeteries are so old that no one knows where they are today. In fact, any place you visit in Old Town could be someone’s final resting place – so tread carefully.

In addition to hidden cemeteries, Old Town was once home to smoky saloons, brothels, and other businesses that catered to a rowdy clientele. The memory of violence and untimely deaths fills the air, leaving one to wonder about the restless souls who may still linger. Are you ready to dive deeper into Albuquerque’s haunted past?
