Owner Stephanie Waters literally wrote the book, on Haunted Manitou Springs. We have been scaring the public since 2002 at Blue Moon Haunted History Tours. We have hosted several haunted history tours over the years including carriage rides, walking tours, ghost hunts, scary slumber parties, cemetery crawls, spooky mansion tours, and the annual Spirits of Colorado Paranormal Convention.
Our walking tour mostly takes place in Manitou Springs, Colorado, which has been known for a long time as a spiritual sanctuary for Native American Indians. Tribes knew the valley was sacred and would wipe off their war paint and put their weapons down before entering. Victorians arrived and built pagodas over the mineral pools that were once used by the Native Americans for their medicinal properties. Legend has it they cursed the town of Manitou Springs causing the town to become haunted.
