It’s off to the wild, wild west for the Ghost Adventures crew – the Museum of the Mountain West, that is.
Museum of the Mountain West
In Montrose, CO, the Museum of the Mountain West features 20 buildings and more than 500,000 old west artifacts. But it wouldn’t be an episode of Ghost Adventures without some spirited sightings…
Each of the buildings started somewhere else, but was brought here in the last 20 years.
Owner Rich Fike says the “murder house”, in which a man allegedly murdered his entire family in the 1930s, is especially haunted. Inside the house, visitors have been known to stop on the third step, unable to move any further. Are they frozen in fear or is it something more sinister?
The original location for the house was 201 S 5th Street in Montrose. It was moved here in the spring of 2016. It's extra spooky at night.
The general store inside the main building of the museum is filled with antiques, which could very well have spirits attached to them.
Inside the Saloon
Back in 2002, a woman passed away in the saloon on the day of her granddaughter's wedding. She was alone when she died, and the police were unable rule out homicide as the cause of death. On the same day, a clock in the saloon that had been broken for quite some time suddenly began working again when the woman died, but mysteriously broke again after her burial.
The Carriage House has most of the paranormal reports of all the buildings. Fike says boxing legend Jack Dempsey once trained in here, and he’s also heard a Native American man was hanged on the property.
One of the four real human skulls located inside the Museum of the Mountain West rests next to an antique typewriter. If that doesn't send chills down your spine, we're not sure what will!
Zak hitches a ride for his tour of the town and he looks just a little apprehensive…
Zak speaks with Professor Mark Todd, who teaches at Western State Colorado University. His class came here to study this haunt; they’re looking for help in understanding their findings and the reports from many museum staff and volunteers. What will the crew uncover in this revived ghost town? Find out this Saturday at 9|8c!
