The Ghost of Slaughterhouse Gulch is said to be a miner who was killed by an explosion. Reports say because of the nature of his death, he didn’t have a proper burial, which made his spirit restless. In 1918 a camping family heard a cough and looked up to see a ghostly man walking past their camp at dusk. Also, a stage driver is reported to have quit after seeing the apparition walk up to his horses, walk between them and disappear. The horses bolted and were very difficult to get under control.
