New Posts Butte Theater
The Butte Theater began as the "Butte Concert and Beer Hall" in 1896, when proprietors Halbekann & Hertz featured nightly entertainment with the Ladies' Vienna Orchestra. Sometime later, the theater re-premiered as the Butte Opera House under the management of D.R. McArthur. Within two years, numerous clubs and lodges were sponsoring parties and benefits at the Butte on a regular basis. In the 1940s the theater began its now-renowned tradition of performing classic melodramas.

New Posts Jail Museum
This location was the Teller County Jail for over 90 years. The red-brick building housed many heathens during the Pikes Peak or Bust Gold Rush and thereafter. There were cells for both men and women. Accounts of paranormal activity include hearing laughter from what used to be the solitary confinement cell, sightings of small children who quickly disappear and even “white noise” recorded on audio tape. A recent investigation was conducted by Mountain Peak Paranormal Investigations who detected activity. The museum offers special lock-ins where visitors can spend the night with the spirits in one of the cells as well as try to detect activity with the Mountain Peak Paranormal Investigators.

New Posts Imperial Hotel
This property may be one of the most haunted hotels in the entire state of Colorado. It's said to be frequented by the spirit of the original owner, George Long, and his daughter Alice. As George married his first cousin, it’s believed that is why Alice was born with a severe mental disorder. Eventually, she became so unruly that she had to be locked in the couple’s apartment next to the hotel. One day, George “fell” down the stairs and perished, although stories say Alice hit him with a skillet in the head before he plummeted to his demise. Today, Alice’s old room is the Red Rooster Bar. Staff reports if the doors are closed, scratching can be heard on the other side. George’s ghost is a bit cheekier playing the slots at night when the casino is closed and touching lady guests at his leisure. The location was featured on an episode of Travel Channel’s Ghost Hunters.

New Posts Grande Casino & Hotel
Home of Maggie’s restaurant, guests may catch a glimpse of Maggie, herself, if frequenting the hotel. Often times at night, music and voices can be heard from the ballroom, slots clinging and clanging after hours and even the hotel’s security cameras have caught Maggie in her period clothing. After being stowed away, the tapes mysteriously disappear. The property was also featured on the Travel Channel’s Ghost Hunters Cripple Creek episode.

New Posts Hotel St. Nicholas
Originally built as a hospital during the boom of the Pikes Peak or Gold Rush, the hotel has a few haunting additions. One of the most seen apparitions is “Stinky” who stands behind a staircase and is often followed by a sewage-like stench. Another, a half-missing miner, is sometimes spotted along with a little boy known as “Pete” who often steals cigarettes and other items. Many of the paranormal beings are believed to be from the mental ward of the hospital which finally closed its doors in 1970 before opening again as the hotel.

New Posts Cripple Creek / Victor Gold Mine
The Cripple Creek gold deposits occur within a seven-square-mile, 30-million-year-old, volcanic complex that erupted and intruded through rocks that are over one-billion years old. The rocks within the complex consist mostly of breccias, dikes, sills, and flows with minor amounts of fossil-bearing lake sediments, sandstones, conglomerates, and fresh-water limestone. The large variety of rocks and minerals make the location a gold miner’s dream.
