Take a walk through 140 years of haunted history in the heart of the Rocky Mountains! GHOST WALK DURANGO is a guided walking tour through the historic district of Durango, Colorado. Durango was founded offically in 1880 to serve the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad following an unsuccessful negotiation with the existing settlement of Animas City, 2 miles north. Gun battles, including the Stockton Gang and the Simmons Gang feud, lynchings, a fire in 1889 that consumed most of the wooden buildings and sidewalks in town, the Spanish Flu epidemic, and a general reckless "Devil May Care" element that was omnipresent in the early days have all contributed to countless ghost and haunting stories. For the first 40 years of Durango's existence, no sane person left their home without a pistol, and for farmers, ranchers and business people alike a lever action rifle or double barrel shotgun was strapped to a plow, in a saddle scabbard, or propped against a desk more often than not. All stories you will hear have been researched and well documented, and may have been experienced by your guide personally. Folklore and legends have been carefully preserved from generations of local storytellers. Returning guest may hear new stories as our research uncovers further nuggets of history and legend! As educational as it is fun, GHOST WALK DURANGO is one of Durango's most popular attractions and a sure bet for fun and thrills! Kids love it! Perfect for Couples!
