More About This Book

Overview

Denver's famous Croke-Patterson Mansion, built in 1890 and located in Denver's Capitol Hill — what was once considered the most extravagant and upscale neighborhood of the city — is still one of the rarest gems of Denver's architecture. Once owned by several of Denver's most prominent families, the red sandstone mansion is named for its original owners, Thomas Croke, who commissioned the home, and Thomas Patterson, a local attorney and newspaper publisher who purchased the home from Croke.

From day one, the completed 13,000 square-foot home was deemed unbearable to live in. Today the mansion is known as "one of the most haunted places in Colorado" with reports of spirits, bodies buried beneath the floors (reportedly no remains have actually been found) and "otherworldly voices." One story even tells of two dogs that apparently jumped from a third-story window during renovations in the 1970s.
