It's not much of a ghost story, more of an event but part of a long haunting. Many years ago (1993) when I still worked in hospitality a friend invited my wife and I to move from the Palm Springs area to Cripple Creek Colorado, a small gaming (previously a mining town known as "The World's Greatest Gold Camp") town sitting nearly 10,000 feet In the Colorado Rockies. Located not too far west of Colorado Springs, Cripple Creek (yes, the same Cripple Creek mentioned in the song by "The Band" -- "Up on Cripple Creek") produced more wealth than any other gold mine camp on the face of the earth up to the year 1930. Over $400 million in gold. Cripple Creek got its name quite by accident. It is said a cattleman was building a shelter close to a nearby creek assisted by a helper. The helper accidentally discharged a gun, wounding another man in the foot. The excitement and confusion frightened a calf, which broke its leg jumping over the creek. The calf was crippled causing the rancher to refer to the creek as "Cripple Creek." Cripple Creek once had a population in excess of 35,000. A major fire broke out in 1896 followed by a second fire only days later. Much of the town was destroyed. Nevertheless, Cripple Creek was rebuilt and lives on today. This was a rough town, full of murder and prostitution. Women were abundant but always under the watchful eye of Pearl DeVere, the towns Madame. The fire wasn't the only tragedy to beset the town. A polio outbreak killed over a hundred children. Their gravestones litter the cemetery. I worked at the Imperial Hotel in the front office. The Imperial Hotel was built in 1896 as the Collins Hotel and was run by George Long. George came from an affluent European family who wanted him out of their affairs, so they bought him a hotel to manage in this remote town. George had married his first cousin, and their oldest daughter, Alice, was severely mentally disabled. Alice was kept locked in an apartment next to the lobby that is now the Red Rooster Bar. Mrs. Long was having an affair with George's partner and one day Mrs. Long hit George on the head with an iron skillet in the kitchen - he then fell down the stairs to the basement, and to his death. George haunts the main and basement floors of the hotel. The second floor is occupied by an old miner who appears at the foot of your bed in the middle of the night and the third floor has "the lady in white" a woman who died in the hotel during a fire. I had to learn every aspect of the hotel and that included night audit, an 11 PM to 7 AM shift. I had become accustomed to the sounds of the water moving through the radiant pipes that ran throughout the hotel. One evening I heard scratching coming from the vacant and locked Red Rooster Bar, the previous housing of the Longs where they kept their daughter. I would unlock the door, turn on the lights and investigate to find nothing. I told the staff what happened and they explained it was the ghost of the trapped daughter. To this day she also likes to pull out the chairs as people are about to sit down causing them to fall flat on their bum! After a few months of working in the hotel and witnessing & hearing a few odd things I would always greet George as I came onto property, asking him how the hotel was doing. One evening, on my day off I was out with friends. I was in the company of a young lady who I knew had an attraction toward me and we ended up at the Imperial in a somewhat secluded hallway where a piano and small love seat we positioned. We were sitting on the sofa across from one of the hotel banquet rooms named "The Cralton Room." On the door to the Carlton Room there is a sign with the same name on it. It's BOLTED, not screwed, into the solid wood door. As we were sitting and flirting, the sign from the door flew off and across a nearly 5 foot wide hallway to land in between my feet. Evidently I had touched a nerve in George and he expressed his opinion of those who would invite infidelity. It didn't scare me much, but certainly startled me! I understand what he was saying and I stopped my behavior then and there. I hope to revisit the hotel someday and say hello to my old General Manager who I never saw but certainly respected.

Views of small aircraft at the dirt field that, I'm fairly sure, eventually became the Colorado Springs Airport. Whether it's that or not, it's still a fascinating look at some old aviation in action. This film dates from the late 1940s, I think. Wikipedia says, about the airport, "In 1927 the airport opened on 640 acres (260 ha) 7 miles (11 km) east of the city, with two gravel runways. In the late 1930s the first scheduled airline flight went from El Paso, Texas, through Pueblo, Colorado Springs, to Denver and back. The first municipal terminal was built in 1942 in an art deco style. Soon after the terminal was built the field was taken over by the military in the months preceding World War II. After the war, the city regained control."

As Written by William H. (Bill) James b. 1935: As for Grandma James (Eva Weber) and Baby Doe Tabor. They met up near Cripple Creek as miners wives. My dad's dad was somewhat of a big deal for a while in the mining community in a number of camps in Colorado. Baby Doe's husband, H.A.W. Tabor struck it rich. Dad's dad didn't. It didn't however, change the friendship these two women enjoyed with each other. When she was rich, she and her husband lived in downtown Denver and Baby Doe apparently spent huge sums of money with the Denver merchants, including the grocery market at the streetcar turn aboud. After her husband died, Baby Doe stayed in the mine (it has a famous name that I can't readily recall). She believed she would get rich again from what was left in the mine, but she didn't. The winters were fierce, so Eva invited her to spend winters with her and her five children in a house Byron James left her on the 800 block of South Pearl street (about 10 blocks from where I was raised on South Corona St). Numa had a room to himself, being the main breadwinner from age 11 or 12 on, after his dad died. Even though the house was a rather large two-story corner house, the kids shared rooms. Eva had one room, Numa, one room and the four kids shared the remaining two rooms. When Baby Doe came to their house each winter, Dad (Numa) gave his room to her and he slept in the parlor and/or with the younger brothers and sister. He wrote an extensive article in the 1950's titled "Baby Doe Slept in My Bed." As the story goes, he sold it for $300 to Reader's Digest, but they never published it. Later, when Numa was active in the Westerners Historical Society, he submitted it for publication in one of the organization's annual publications (hard bound book of select articles written by Westerner members, published annually). He wrote other articles that ran in subsequent editions of the Westerners book. He was the Sheriff (president) of the group atleast twice and was a member of the Posse (board of directors) for at least a dozen years. I'm sure I must have a copy of the one his Baby Doe story is in, but it's in one of a dozen or more boxes out in Linda Lawrence's barn in Estacada. I'll try to make a special effort to locate it and get it to you. I'd like to read the story again myself as he told some interesting things about Baby Doe, Eva and the family. Glad you're interested. I'll feed you what I can once it warms up enough to spend a couple hours in that cold barn. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Doe_Tabor Baby Doe Tabor From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Elizabeth McCourt Tabor (1854, Oshkosh, Wisconsin -- 7 March 1935, Leadville, Colorado), better known as Baby Doe, was the second wife of pioneer Colorado businessman Horace Tabor. Horace Tabor's divorce and subsequent marriage to the young and beautiful Baby Doe caused a major scandal in 1880s Colorado. Although Tabor was one of the wealthiest men in Colorado when she married him, he later lost his entire fortune, and Baby Doe Tabor lived the rest of her life in poverty. Her tragic story inspired the opera The Ballad of Baby Doe.

http://www.yardlimitproductions.com In June of 2018 D&RGW 315 led this photo freight from Antonito to Cumbres Pass and back to Antonito the next day. This video captures 315 leaving Cumbres Pass on its way toward Antonito. Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad 315 was built in July 1895 by Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad. Named the Elkton, it was one of twelve Consolidations of the same class built for F&CC. It served the Florence & Cripple Creek for about 17 years. After the flood of 1912, the F&CC was financially unable to repair its roadway, so it was isolated at Canon City and then put into storage at Colorado Springs after the F&CC closed down in 1915. The Elkton and her sister engines sat derelict until 1917 when five of them were purchased by the D&RG. D&RG bought a sixth sister in 1920. The engines were loaded aboard D&RG flat cars and moved to the D&RG Burnham Shops in Denver, where they were repaired and upgraded to help meet the increased transportation demands of World War I. When the engines were put into service the F&CC #3 became D&RG #425. After the reorganization of D&RG and its merger with the Rio Grande Western in Utah in 1921, the railroad became the Denver & Rio Grande Western. The locomotive was called D&RGW #425 for a short time. Following the reorganization, many locomotives were renumbered to bring order to the locomotive classes, and D&RGW #425 became D&RGW #315 in January 1924. The 315 was first assigned to the Alamosa Division as a freight engine, where it was known to be in Chama around 1921-22 and in Durango around 1928. It was leased to the Rio Grande Southern for a period in 1926-1927. It was on the Gunnison Branch in 1929 and idle in Salida for a few years after the stock market crashed and again in the late 1930s during a recession. It served the Ouray Branch out of Montrose from 1933–1936 and again during 1939–1941. By the early 1940’s, as bigger locomotives came on the line, many of the smaller 2-8-0s were either being scrapped or used as yard engines. In March of 1941 the 315 was sidelined for a few months. It was taken to Alamosa for repairs during September and October, then sent to Durango to become a yard engine. At this time, it gained a rear light and had the road pilot replaced with a switchman platform. It was shopped again in 1945, receiving new flues and other major work. In 1948 the 315 was used in the Warner Brothers movie, Colorado Territory. When released in June 1949, it was the first of many films made by Hollywood in the Durango area, which saved the Silverton Branch line through tourism. The 315 remained in service in Durango until October 1949. Jackson Clark and the Durango Rotary Club saved the 315 from being scrapped by convincing the D&RGW to lease it to the city for display. The 315 was placed in Brookside Park on North Main Street in September 1950. When the D&RGs was getting ready to abandon the Durango to Alamosa line, the 315 was donated to the Chamber of Commerce in 1968. In 1986 the 315 was moved to Gateway Park, now Santa Rita Park, to be near the new visitors center. Since being displayed in a park the 315 received numerous coats of paint and lost a number of parts. In October 2000, at the request of the DRHS, the locomotive was granted a historic landmark designation by the City of Durango. In December 2000 the Chamber of Commerce transferred ownership to the City of Durango. The 315 normally operates on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad during that railroad's annual Railfest event held every August. In 2016, the 315 made a return to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad to participate in their Narrow Gauge Rendezvous event held on August 25. It remained on the C&TS to play a part in the festivities associated with 37th National Narrow Gauge Convention on September 4, 2017. http://www.drhs315.org/blog/drgw-315/

Get you started to listen to the full audiobook Brothels, Bordellos, and Bad Girls, free at our library. Prostitution thrived in pioneer Colorado. Mining was the principal occupation and men outnumbered women more than twenty to one. Jan MacKell provides a detailed overview of the business between 1860 and 1930, focusing her research on the mining towns of Cripple Creek, Salida, Colorado City, and similar boomtown communities. She used census data, Sanborn maps, city directories, property records, marriage records, and court records to document and trace the movements of the women over the course of their careers, uncovering work histories, medical problems, and numerous relocations from town to town. She traces many to their graves, through years filled with abuse, disease, narcotics, and violence. The book is published by University of New Mexico Press.

Get your Colorado Goodies here! The Ghost Town Wild West Museum in Colorado Springs, CO is a throwback in time and a fun way to learn about history and this Wild Era! (This Footage is a Small Part of the Bigger Video - To watch, visit http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColoradoTV) Turn Your Watch Back 100 Years! As a true preservation of Colorado's western past, Ghost Town Museum is a fun and historic look back at kind of old west town that used to dot this region during the late1800's and early 1900's "An Authentic Ghost Town" Selected by Mobile Travel Guide and Family Circle Magazine as one of the fifty-five special attraction of America. See the USA Travel Edition Recognition of Merit. Explore the boardwalk connecting the Blacksmith's shop, Saloon, General and Merchants of main street, with the Livery Stable, and Victorian Home. Each is filled with thousands of fascinating artifacts. Ghost Town Museum delights young and old with lots of hands on activities, including old time arcades, panning for real gold (summer months), and much, much, more. - See More at http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColoradoTV Ghost Town History Ghost Town Museum was created in 1954 to preserve a piece of Colorado's Wild West heritage. In 1858 the cry "Pikes Peak or Bust" opened up the heartland of the Colorado territory to the gold prospector. Gold mining became a significant factor that led to the statehood of Colorado. The miners and the people who provided services to them quickly populated the western frontier of the United States. They needed transportation, and before long the twin steel ribbons of the railroads were pushing into the mountains to transport ore for processing. Towns sprang up overnight and by the 1860's and 1870's people had blanketed the west. It was a rough and tumble time. Small encampments became small towns. Small cities along the rocky mountain Front Range provided a central location for supplies and services. The search for gold drove prospectors to every mountain valley, and every mountain peak. If gold or silver were not located, or if the mines played out, the towns were often abandoned to become ghost towns. Little by little the raw spirit of the frontier died down. By the time gold was discovered in Cripple Creek in 1891, the "frontier" was almost gone. Today almost nothing remains of those exciting days of the old west. A scattered pile of old lumber, a tumbled pile of rocks marking an old mine, an occasional wagon wheel or a piece of equipment. The rip roaring camps of 100 years ago have become ghost towns now only a memory of a bygone era.

This is the pre annexation public hearing at Midland Elementary School, at the foot of White Acres. Among those that got up to speak was Diane, who informed the developer that this was a small percentage of people that are against this development, an encouraged everyone to be as active with thed city council to stop this destruction. White Acres is part of the scenic backdrop for much of Colorado Springs, from Old Colorado City to the airport, from the Air Force Academy to Fort Carson. Adjacent to Red Rock Canyon Open Space and Section 16, and less than a quarter mile west of the Bear Creek Nature Center, White Acres occupies a strategic location in relation to our parks and open spaces. It encompasses the light colored cliffs west and south of the 5-way intersection of 26th Street, Gold Camp Road, Bear Creek Road, Lower Gold Camp and Wheeler. White Acres has significant intrinsic value as open space; and its strategic location adjacent to Red Rock Canyon Open Space, Bear Creek Park, and Section 16 gives it special importance as part of a larger whole. White Acres is now County zoned for forestry and recreation. Infinity Land Corporation is seeking to have the property annexed into the City of Colorado Springs for a roughly 23 acre development which could include 16 to 22 attached housing units and 27 single family homes. Annexation and development would bring urban density, traffic, visual blight to our scenic backdrop, and the loss of open space connection from downtown to Manitou Springs. Many people have said that the Whites heirs decided to donate the property to the Bethany Baptist Church because the they wanted the property to retain its character rather than being developed into a hillside subdivision. The Church gave the property the name White Acres and built an open pavilion for outdoor worship services and other events. This development includes a pavilion, a play area and a parking lot. http://www.SaveWhiteAcres.org http://www.WhiteAcres.org http://www.redrockcanyonopenspace.org photos maps, report from UltraROB: http://www.savewhiteacres.com News report with video here: http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/35...
