Why is Denver So Haunted?

Denver was founded in 1858 as a mining town by General William Larimer. Looking across the creek, he spotted the St. Charles claim and headed over to stake a square-mile claim of his own. Larimer and his crew gave the representatives whiskey, promises, and the threat of a noose. St. Charles was thereby surrendered to Larimer. 

 

The site was renamed Denver City after Kansas City Governor James W. Denver. In 1862 high winds fueled a fire that broke out in Denver, causing devastating loss. Laws were passed prohibiting wood for buildings, and Denver began to rebuild its buildings using brick.

Lizzie Borden Tour

 

The Silver boom in 1879 brought much fortune to Denver. Saloons, gambling dens, theater all kept the city alive and flourishing. Along with it also came crime and corruption. Underworld bosses worked side by side with city officials and police to profit from gambling and other criminal activity. 

While some brought crime, others fought to combat it. In 1893 the women’s suffrage organized the prohibition and the right to be treated equally. The two World Wars and the Great Depression changed Denver’s times like the rest of the country, and mining turned into manufacturing. The old pioneer days were long gone, and Denver modernized.
