Why is Salt Lake City So Haunted?

Nestled between the Great Salt Lake and the iconic Wasatch Mountain Range, Salt Lake City boasts some of the most popular hiking trails and picnic spots in the country. But beyond the amazing snow-sure slopes and snowboarding activities is a dark past packed with spooky stories of greedy profiteers, false prophets, and ghostly apparitions of tortured souls. 

Founded by Mormon pioneers searching for a New Jerusalem, SLC’s haunted history is shrouded in mystery and unresolved religious tensions, and the city’s sinful past—marked by the stringent beliefs and doctrines of the Mormon church—has left a legacy of restless spirits doomed to haunt its streets for eternity.

Lizzie Borden Tour


Mormon’s strict doctrines and do-or-die moral codes back then led to an endless cycle of suffering and tragic death for anyone who dared defy them, but it wasn’t the only force behind Salt Lake’s haunted reputation. The city’s haunted history is also steeped in tales of the greed and debauchery that arose during the gold rush of the 1850s. New emigrants, driven by a lust for wealth and a taste for vice, found themselves trapped in an eternal state between the living and the dead.

Want to learn more about SLC’s ghost stories and the dejected souls forever tied to the city? Join us tonight after sunset for a unique opportunity to take a spooky stroll through the streets and places where these dark deeds were committed and feel the presence of lost souls yearning to tell their stories.

The Salt Lake City and County Building

Built and completed over three years, from 1891 through 1894, the historic Salt Lake and County Building hasn’t only served as the courthouse and former offices, but it is also said to be inhabited by at least five restless spirits, including a former mayor with a wooden leg and a remorseful judge who condemned an innocent man to death.

Capitol Theater

Built in 1913, the historic Capitol Theater started out as a famous Social Hall for all sorts of events and celebrations for the early Mormon settlers. Today, this iconic movie house is haunted by the ghosts of Rita Hayworth and young Dickie Duffin, with reports of distinct odors of smoke in the basement and the sounds of people whispering and talking with nobody in sight.

Whiskey Street

Regarded by many as the most haunted location in all of Salt Lake City, the historic Whiskey Street has changed its name more times than a con artist on the run. Still, it can’t shake off the spooky legacy etched into its foundation. Learn more about the mysterious fire that claimed many lives in the site where Whiskey Street stands today, leaving behind a bunch of restless spirits that haunt the bars and breweries to this day.
