Most likely due to its history as a popular place to settle in the 1800s during the mining boom, Colorado has a lot of places that are believed to be haunted.

For example, the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park is notoriously haunted and even inspired Stephen King's book The Shining, Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs is said to be home to numerous ghosts, and let's not forget about Cave of the Winds.

Even some places that are known for being a lot of fun like Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre in Morrison, Pinball Jones in Fort Collins, and The Mesa Theater in Grand Junction are said to be haunted as well.

However, if you scroll through all of the places in Colorado that are said to be haunted, one town that dates back all the way to the 1880s is nowhere to be found. So, what could be the reason that Fruita, Colorado is supposedly not haunted?
