The “Historic Alma House” at the Silverton Inn of the Rockies was built in 1898. It was built as a Inn for Mining and Train executives. High in the Mountains, Silverton was once a bustling mining town. The Durango Silverton Railroad ran between towns. These were rough times, with saloons and a Red Light district. There were shootings, mine accidents, avalanches and being snow bound as just a few causes of untimely deaths. There are several reports of sightings, movements and sounds at the Alma House.
Voices are heard, a woman in a window, switches turned off, and feelings of a presence by those who say they are sensitive to such things.
