Why is Cheyenne So Haunted?

In the heart of the Wild West, Cheyenne is a city where history is alive—quite literally, in some cases. The town was born from the dust of railroad expansion on July 4, 1867, when Grenville M. Dodge surveyed the land for the Union Pacific Railroad. Almost immediately, Cheyenne began to expand as railroaders and early settlers arrived. In just a month, more than 600 people were in the fledgling city.

And that rapid growth continued. It even earned Cheyenne the nickname “Magic City of the Plains.” By November, when the first engines from the Union Pacific rolled into town, thousands of people had moved to Cheyenne. However, not all these new inhabitants were the most upstanding individuals. In those days, Cheyenne was at the heart of the Wild, Wild West, and it didn’t take long for saloons, brothels, and gambling houses to take over the streets.

These shady characters ruled the city, making it a lawless and dangerous place. A red-light district was born, where women of easy virtue entertained railroaders, cowboys, and outlaws. This district was home to Our Place, a saloon that opened in 1883. Not only do the ghosts of prostitutes walk these halls, but also some of their clients.

By the turn of the century, the chaos of Cheyenne was beginning to find order, and more legitimate businesses started to open. But even those aren’t without a dark and shadowy past. The ghosts of Cheyenne’s early days are begging to have their stories told, and with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours, those specters will get their wish! To find out more about the twisted history of Cheyenne, grab a spot on our Cheyenne ghost tour tonight!

Why should you tour with us?

You’re a skeptic who wants to challenge your beliefs

Not sold on the idea that ghosts are real? Join Cheyenne Ghosts and put your convictions aside—because this tormented town might make a believer of you yet. Stop at famously haunted locales such as the Hynds Building, and unveil the horrifying truths and real-life tragedies that have left an irreversibly sinister stain on Wyoming’s “Magic City of the Plains.” Even the most staunch of nonbelievers will feel a shiver down their spine upon hearing the blood-curdling story of the Fire of 1916, which left 10 innocent hotel guests—including children—dead after they were trapped in the blaze. It’s not difficult to imagine why even after all these years, sinister, dark energy still hangs heavy over the Hynds Building…and why unearthly presences are often seen floating through the shadowy halls from beyond the grave.

You want to experience a hidden side of Wyoming’s capital city

There’s a certain side of Cheyenne that’s advertised to tourists—a clean-cut, modernized town reminiscent of America’s Old West. But behind the facade, you’ll quickly come to realize that Cheyenne is actually one of the most troubled, ungodly cities west of the Mississippi. Follow us on a curated one-hour walking tour around downtown, and unbury what’s been buried. A lot has been lost in history, from Cheyenne’s reputation for being a seedy hotspot for gun-slinging cowboys and prostitutes, to its tendency to bring about unspeakable tragedies, such as the Fire of 1916. But perhaps hidden the most from public view are Cheyenne’s undead, the souls of long-departed residents who arise once the sun sets on this wicked town. Join us and come face-to-face with the mysterious, the unexplainable, and the disturbing…if you dare.

You’re a local who wants to discover the dark side of your hometown

If you call Cheyenne home, odds are you’re more than familiar with its unique culture and rich history. But do you know about its troubled past, and its one-of-a-kind, otherworldly residents? Follow us and expand your knowledge of this true Old West town, and hear the spine-tingling ghost stories and terrifying real-life atrocities that have taken place in the same buildings you pass by each day. Hear the infamous legends that have been passed down for generations, and stop by the sites of Cheyenne’s former brothels, saloons, and burlesque theaters—many of which are said to be haunted by the sins of their past. Who knows? You might just learn something new.

You’re a history buff who wants to learn more about Cheyenne’s dark underbelly

From the Gold Rush to the American Pacific Railroad Company to cowboys, you might think you know everything there is to know about Cheyenne’s part in the Old West. But after taking a tour with Cheyenne Ghosts, you might find yourself surprised. Prepare for an adventure into the hidden, haunted side of Wyoming’s capital city, a side that is so gruesome and demented that it’s been erased from the history books. Stop by Our Place/Madeline’s Scents, an unsuspecting building that marks where Cheyenne’s Red Light District used to stand during the years of the so-called Wild West. Here, knife fights, illegal gambling, prostitution, and even murder were commonplace…and the sins of this building’s past have plagued its present. Visitors report hearing strange whispers in the night…perhaps, the mumbled chatter of long-dead shady ladies.

But after you’ve explored the scenic Botanic Gardens, visited the city’s many museums, and gorged yourself on chops and ribs, broaden your horizons by taking a walking tour with Cheyenne Ghosts. Switch up your normal vacation routine and get ready to dive into the sordid, the mystic, and the chilling. Stroll through downtown Cheyenne, all while hearing about a history that’s not told to your average tourist. Learn about the mysterious entity that’s rumored to haunt the old fire station, and hear the hidden secrets behind the senseless violence, shootouts, and mysterious happenings that have continued to occur within its blood-stained walls over 100 years—it’s sure to be an unforgettable highlight of your visit.
