My grandma owns a house around the corner from the police station. She and I go up there every summer for a couple of days, and she has lots of stories, but the one that got my attention the most was that the house she currently owns used to be owned by a lady called Emma. Emma would bring in stray dogs and cats and take care of them. One night I was up there with my friend, and I've always known that there's a ghost that hides in the house, but I thought it was just a fake story my grandma told me.
One night I was sleeping, and I was awakened by a feeling that I was being stared at. I opened my eyes, looked around, and I saw something standing in front of the bedroom. I squinted my eyes to get a closer look, and what I saw was a woman dressed in a 1800s dress. I thought it was just a shadow of something, and I could care less. I stared at the ghost, and a couple of seconds more I looked at the clock and back to the door way, and the ghostly figure was gone. The next night the figure was back, but this time standing next to my friend sleeping. The last night I was awakened by a hard knocking on a wall 3 seconds apart from each knock. I woke my friend and asked if he heard any knocking, and he said ''no. '' I heard the knocking again he still claimed he hadn't heard anything. Besides, he had a feeling someone was breathing on him and giving him a ''watching-you'' feeling.

One day while at work in Leadville City Hall, I was talking with another employee in the police department. Behind her were the two small double windows through which business with the public is transacted. The windows were closed but through the glass I saw the head and shoulders of a man lean over and look in. I told my friend that there was someone at the window, so she turned around, opened the doors but found nobody there. Both of us went out the door and into the lobby but found no one around. A flesh and blood person couldn't have left without being seen. It was just another wandering soul trying to get our attention... In true ghostly fashion.
On another occasion, I was painting over some graffiti on a shed at Evergreen Cemetery. For no particular reason I turned around to look behind me and saw a pair of legs right behind me, visible from the knee down, in running or walking position. As I watched they disappeared.
At another location in Leadville, I was working in a historic downtown building. The tenant in the upstairs apartment asked me to check on her plants while she was away for several days. She left the key with me. The next day I went up to check her plants and noticed nothing unusual. The tenant called me the following day and asked me to go upstairs, get something that she'd forgotten and FedEx it to her. When I got upstairs and went into the kitchen, I noticed that the upper cabinet doors at both ends were standing wide open. They were closed the day before and I was the only person anywhere with a key. That was only one of a number of things the ghost in the building did. .
