Believed to be haunted by a male patient who died when the building briefly served as a hospital, this apparition is mainly seen by male visitors as he tends to be more respectful of women. Disembodied footsteps are also heard in the building after dark.

    The Ouray Museum is in Ridgeway?? The Ouray museum is in Ouray in the old hospital built by the local mines in town. It’s haunted by a surgeon seen in the surgical suite and a nurse is seen in the old OB birthing rooms.
