Why is Flagstaff So Haunted?

Once the home of the Yavapi and Apache Natives, the city of Flagstaff has a long and heinous history that has left it riddled with otherworldly energy. Americans began flooding into the mountain city on their way to California after the arrival of military explorers in the 1850s. A well-planned trail that led further west attracted some villainous characters with nothing but malice in their eyes.

You know you’re in for a spooky time when the first building built in town is a saloon. 1871 marked the city’s beginning with its first waterhole, and things have been a little eerie since. The town’s first murder occurred in 1877 when a small child was killed over a water dispute, and the dangers of the West continued to wreak havoc ever since. The railroads brought even more prospective settlers, but with them came the saloons, brothels, and gambling houses that marked the city with ghastly residents that now hang about all over town.

A fire ravaged the city in 1882, burning down many buildings, including the bustling red-light district that was forming, adding to the paranormal stew. Tunnels crisscrossed the city below ground and were used by Chinese laborers attempting to escape rampant racism. Many say they are haunted by the ghosts of others who found them useful for more sinister purposes. As the 20th century approached, Flagstaff bloomed as one of northern Arizona’s most important commercial centers.

The Dark City became known for its beautiful and clear starry skies and was where Pluto was discovered in 1930. Tourism flourished as people began to discover the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area, prompting the development of theatres, hotels, and modernity. These buildings filled the spirits of Arizona’s rugged past and are waiting for you! Book your Flagstaff ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours tonight!
