The Molly Brown house, Denver

The Molly Brown house


The Molly Brown house was built in the 1880's, and it is famous for one of its inhabitants in particular, Mrs Brown herself, who was present at and survived the sinking of the famous ship, the Titanic. In 1970, the house was set for demolition, but a group of citizens who formed Historic Denver inc, raised funds and saved the house. It is open today as a museum.


The building is said to be haunted by Molly and her husband. Reports from employees include things such as blinds opening and closing on their own, shadowy figures and sudden cold spots, especially in Molly's bedroom. Probably the most common report is the strong smell of cigar smoke, even though it is a non-smoking house and the smell comes from empty rooms, Molly's husband was said to be regular cigar smoker.

Another apparition of the house is a woman in Victorian dress is said to often re-arrange the furniture, she has even been captured on film.
