There is a shadow ghost that is around town, mostly seen around 3am. The laundry mat and apartments across the el portal used to be a motuary and are haunted. Super 8 in the mid and upper level are haunted.
The St. James is not. I spent the night on a halloween night. Nothing happened. They said a ghost was supposed to return the shot glass by morning in the closed off room. They lied. I slept in the room across and paid more than $100 for one night. I watch like a hawk for that shot glass to be placed by the door.
There are alot of houses and places in Raton that are extemly haunted. I always wanted to know about that house that looks like a mansion on north 1st.

There is the house on either Cook or Rio Grande Ave that had a pentagram, with maybe a jokers head or goat head in the center, right over the front door. It used to creep me out when I was a kid. Anyone know what I am talking about?

I remember the house u r talking about when I was in school my bus route passed right by it. Nice thread by the way would like to see more posts in it.

One story that always creeped me out when I was a kid and even now is the story of the man with hooves for feet that would go dancing at Uncle Louie's, everybody believed it was the devil and I have talked to several people about that swear to have seen it back in the day or know someone who has, anyone ever hear of this?

If I am haunted by the memories of anything, the hangovers related to Uncle Louie's. Good god.

I have a place out in that direction (towards Yankee) I will have to see if anyone knows of native burial grounds. If you do want to see something both humbling and scary looking, go visit the cemeteries on top of the mesa. Johnson Mesa and a few other have those old time burial plots.

But be careful and make sure you aren't on anyone's land, one of them is bordered by a private area.

Lot of history up on those mesas, they can look pretty horror movie style late at night.

Was that the name of that bucket of blood? Uncle Louie's?

Those were much younger, much wilder, much drunker days. When I think about how much we used to drink... then again... we used to get pull - top cases of beers for next to nothing.

So many memories that really aren't there... or I may just have alzheimer's already

Yes, I heard of this story. The man was in a black trench coat an well dressed. He danced with a woman in a red dress. Everyone there noticed them as they danced as saw he had hoofs and a tail. The mysterious couple then left and was never seen again.

There is also another story of the old funeral cars that passed through town at 3am. They drove to the cemetary headed up to the high school and then vanished. I heard that a story about was in the range. This happened about in the 80s, also the story above happened in the 80s.

The cemetery across from the Johnson Mesa church has always been pretty scary. lol I just remember a woman who lived out in yankee telling me about an indian burial ground when I was a child. Not sure if it's true or not, but found it pretty interesting!

Way up top on Johnson Mesa, there was a guy who lived alone in one of the old "teardrop" 50's style trailers. You couldn't miss it, it was about 1/2 mile off the roadway - the thing stuck out like a sore thumb.

I talked to him, last time maybe 10 years ago he was still there. Folks who lived out there thought he was crazy, he was just a lonely old hermit. But I used to talk to him when I did see him...

He was a darn history EXPERT on the area and knew everything there was to know about Colfax County, down to who was buried where and their life history. He said there was a native burial plot somewhere in that area. He swore he knew where it was, just didn't tell anyone, for fear jack asses would defile or rob the graves.

looking into the past where the el portal is there was in the early days of raton was a barn and what is now the laundry mat was a theather. the morarty was located where the hot dog restaurant the place next door was a boarding house and what is now the library was also a boarding house.was a time when court would be held and in thoes days people would be hung was a hanging tree at the y where the roads divide many meet their demise at the y. garica street had a bar,gambling and ladies of the night. also was theather garcia street has alot of mystery to it.raton has alot of old old places and along with these places spirits come and go. so when you are out wondering around you hear faint laugher or singing or keys raddle or twig snap.when you think something rushed by you or gave you a breese like the wind when leaves blow. it is the spirits letting you know they are there and they know who you are.
