A ten-mile drive from Boulder takes you back a hundred years to the tiny ghost town of Gold Hill, Colorado. Throughout its long history, the Gold Hill Inn has had more than just a reputation for great food and lodging... it's also famous for its ghosts!
The history of the Gold Hill Inn dates back to 1872, when the gold craze first brought people to the hills just outside of Boulder. Originally called the Wentworth Hotel, this three-story luxury log building was constructed with the idea of attracting tourists to the town. The Wentworth Hotel hosted many famous personalities, including Clarence Darrow.
In 1920, the hotel became the Bluebird Lodge and was run as a private vacation spot for teachers and nurses from the Chicago area. In 1962 the hotel was bought by Barbara and Frank Finn and became the Gold Hill Inn.
Eerie tales of ghosts still wandering the halls of the Gold Hill abound. The town itself is basically a ghost town, with just a few of the original buildings still surviving. Guests staying at the Gold Hill Inn report feeling a "cold breath" on their necks as they peruse the many antiquities inside the hotel, and many a guest has had to leave in the middle of the night reporting that there was someone -- or something -- standing in their room with them!
