The Church Street Café, The High Noon Saloon, La Hacienda Restaurant…
Take your pick of the haunted habitations within Old Town.
Albuquerque’s antiquated hamlet is reportedly home to more than a dozen specters of all shapes, sizes and ages. A civil war soldier reportedly rides a ghostly steed down the streets of the plaza. The one-time owner of the Church Street estate, Sara Ruiz, reportedly still has her hand in the daily goings on. A mourning apparition has supposedly been seen within the Chapel of our Lady of Guadalupe.
The list goes on and on.
Author Cody Polston has written a book about the various hauntings -some easily de-bunked, some still mystifying. Visitors to Old Town can tour the grounds for themselves with the Old Town Ghost Tours, running most nights. The tour takes a little more than an hour and offers an historic, spooky and comprehensive guide to the haunted stories of Old Town.
