The Ghost Tour Continues as a Cheyenne Tradition

25 Oct
 

Interesting and informative

The Ghost Tour, hosted by the Cheyenne Depot Museum, has been running each October for the past 11 years and has many things to offer the local Halloween enthusiasts. It is a scripted ride along downtown Cheyenne that has both odd and spooky stories, historical facts about Cheyenne, and jokes throughout the ride to lighten the mood. The trollies are decorated with a Halloween theme and even the conductor gets dressed up!

Experienced locals shared their stories

A couple members of The Paranormal Hunting and Observation Group (PHOG) joined in on the ride and contributed to the spookiness. They were able to share experiences that happened early on in their lives as well as stories from their investigations as a group.

The author of the new book Haunted Cheyenne, Jill Pope, did not join in on the trolley ride, but she was available in the Depot Museum to speak about her book and experiences. Pope says that this book was written about the stories she gathered while organizing the ghost tours each year. She was kind enough to provide a short interview. Check out that interview here:
