Casino: 101 Main St., Central City, CO
Written by Haunted Poker for exclusive
Doc Holliday never owned this casino during his life. It
is said to be named after him in honor of his post-death
visits! Doc Holliday died and was buried in Glenwood
Springs, CO, but he paid many visits to Central City, CO
during his life. The building that houses the Doc
Holliday casino used to be Goldnen Rose Annex.
The Golden Rose hotel had many accounts of hauntings
during its existence. One room in particular received
much attention: even when empty, guests staying in rooms
on either side would complain to management in the
morning about the loud arguments coming from within it.
When gaming was re-legalized in 1991, the annex was sold
and converted into a casino. It is reported that windows
that were locked up the night before would be found
opened in the morning. (As the windows have to be slid
upwards to open, itís somewhat hard to rationalize.)
Papers would be blown all across the office, and files
would be found strewn about, or left inexplicably on the
floor. Sometimes files would disappear entirely, only to
later show up on a desk.
It is believed that the ghost is none other than Doc
Holliday paying these visits. Doc Holliday was dying of
tuberculosis during the last years of his lifeÖand he
knew it. He was often moody and upset; getting into
terrible fights with his on and off-again girlfriend,
Big Nose Kate. Perhaps even after leaving his hard-lived
life he hasnít found the peace he was looking for.
Doc Holliday (1881)
