Downtown Durango is saturated with paranormal activity. You don’t need to walk far to get your fill of ghost stories. This season we have condensed our regular ghost tour into this special Halloween one hour tour. The 900 block of Main Avenue was home to a plethora of saloons, dance halls, brothels, and gambling halls. It was the stomping ground for outlaws, gamblers, prostitutes, miners, and railroad workers. Late night escapades, fueled by whiskey, resulted in many tragic events.
The tour kicks off at Toh-Atin gallery where you will hear the chilling story of an outlaw brought to justice by a vigilante mob. We will then explore what was once considered the saloon block. The ghost of the Sheriff still lingers in the place he was brutally murdered, a sporting girl still wanders a building where her throat was slashed, and a little boy still plays and runs around the halls of an old hotel where he’s eternally waiting for his mom. The grande finale is a tour of a truly haunted stretch of a 1890’s era historic underground tunnel. We consider the stretch of tunnel to be an active paranormal site. Use all of your senses to detect any activity; proceed with caution. Book now (tickets sell fast) and let’s get spooked!
