Highlands Ranch Historical Society offers free ‘Historical Hauntings’

Posted

The public has the opportunity to join the Highlands Ranch Historical Society’s free Zoom meeting, “Historical Hauntings,” at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19. 

Shaun Boyd, curator of archives at History Colorado, will tell tales of cowboys, mysterious Victorian ladies and modern ghost hunting covering a selection of sites from Palmer Lake to Denver, according to a press release from the historical society.

“I’ve been collecting ghost stories since I was a child growing up in my grandparent’s house, which was supposedly haunted by a sailor lost in the Pacific during World War II,” Boyd said, according to the release. “Several years ago, I started participating in paranormal investigations and will share results from our Castle Rock Museum exploration.” 

Before becoming the curator of archives at History Colorado two years ago, Boyd served as an archivist with the Douglas County Libraries in Castle Rock for 19 years.

“Ghost stories have woven throughout our area’s history from before the gold rush and they continue because people are fascinated, especially at this time of year,” said Sara Lebofsky, HRHS vice president for programs. “We’re pleased to offer this program free to the public.”

To join the Zoom meeting, attendees should install Zoom on their computer or phone and login by 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 19. The meeting ID is: 864 9303 5278; the passcode is: 019504. For more information, visit the HRHS website at: https://theHRHS.org

HRHS conducts outreach through monthly programs and community activities, and is also a valuable resource of historic archival information.
