The eerie ruins of the old 1861 Glendale Stagecoach Station are said to be haunted by a gray lady, Kathleen Cooper. Katherine was singing in 1877 when gold prospector Julian LaSalle first met her, and they fell in love. But Julian had business to attend to, and left on the stagecoach with Katherine’s words calling out that she would wait for him. They corresponded through the winter and made plans for their wedding, but Julian never showed up on the appointed day. He had been robbed and killed by highwaymen along the way. Katherine wouldn’t touch food or drink after this, and so died a self-imposed death. But her ghost has been seen at the station, a sad gray apparition in a wedding dress, still awaiting her beloved Julian.

I was here once at night with some friends. I was new to the area and was not thinking. I wanted to walk through in the dark and only a few steps in fell through the floor! When falling I felt like I was floating down. not a scratch or a bruise on me.
Maybe there was a spirit there that assisted me so I would not die. I did not see anything. I just had the sensation and gently landed…
If Kathleen is still there. I would like to thank her for making sure I didn’t die that night.
We have lived a short distance from the Inn for 30+ years. Have ridden horses to it countless times and have visited it late at night many times. Although it is an interesting enough old ruin we have never seen or experienced anything paranormal. As for the story above related by “Mae”, I don’t think she is referring to the same ruin. There is no floor in the place, it has long since been filled in by sand and dirt. We have actually ridden into the ruin on horseback and that surely would have been when the floor fell through if there had been one.
I have spent some quality time at the INN. It may be haunted. After walking the perimeter of the property. I discovered the INN WAS EITHER BUILT ON OR IT SITS. IN CENTER OF A CRYATAL QUARTZ BED OR FOUNDATION. ALSO DURING MY TIME I DISCOVERED A VERY OLD SCULPTURE OF A HEAD. I F OK UND BURIED BENEATH SOLID QUARTZ
