Ghosts at the Bingham Hill Cemetery

October 30, 2007

Written by Bug

 Almost no one knows this place. It becomes almost an unforgotten cemetery in the small town of Laporte, Colorado not far from where I live. 

Before 1990’s many local people did not even know it existed for many years, there were no burials and few visitors except for deer, rabbits, badgers, bears, and skunks. No one ever paid for burial space. Nobody is responsible for its care. “But who are the people under all the unmarked stones and the sunken places with no stones at all?,” Author Rose L. Brinks wondered.  

In 1987 Rose wrote two books about it after she researched everyone interred there. What did it make her write about the cemetery? Because she lives on the farm for some years near the weedy old cemetery along Bingham Hill Road. It was no personal interest to her except that it was visble from her kitchen window. She noticed the few names on headstone. She decided to researched the history of her farm. The cemetery was part of the original farm. Her interest grew so she decided to research more and researched the stories of those who lived and were buried  there motivated her to write a book, “History of the Bingham Hill Cemetery Laporte & Bellvue, Colorado”. She told the ghost author of  Northern Colorado Ghost Stories that she led the guests over to the cemetery to reveal her adventures while researching the cemetery. A guy with his wife were there and noticed a woman dressed in a very fine leather dress, walked across an area in front of the man. He said that she had weathered skin as though she had spent a lot of time outdoors. The ghost walked very gracefully. She had dark hair pulled back and wore no jewelry. She was very slender. She looked real until she disappered into the air. Was it a female ghost? Possibility.

Every time I drive by the cemetery. The local ghost stories keep haunting me. I was told that if you go there at night, one of the ghosts would chase after you. Also, you can feel the unseen cold hands touching you and hear the babies crying. My Deaf friends and I made the film there in the cold October evening. One of my friends fell down in the front of me and got hurt little bit. Why did it happen? Did the ghost push her? Who knows?

Cross lies on the ground
 There was a rumor that ghost sits in this chair.

    We went to this place after hearing the name of it and being in a kind of exploratory mood. We experienced the intense feeling of cold, felt eyes on our backs like we were being followed. When we got home we noticed everything we felt on your website described perfectly. This isn’t the locals messing with tourists, this is real.

    I’ve been there a few times. I’ve felt the “cold” as described, and I caught what seems to be a little girl on an audio recording asking for “help”

    I’ve been there twice at night. No disrespect to those buried there…just curious about the ghost stories and looking for a little adventure. Anyway, nothing slightly scary has every happened and the only frights I’ve seen are because people work the place up in their heads.


    – I swear this article was written in Japanese and then translated to English. The tenses are out of wack, there isn’t any parallelism, and some of the words don’t make sense.
    – For the friend who fell – the ground is uneven because the grounds haven’t been kept up in decades. There are TONS of places one could fall.
    – For the guy who felt cold on the walk there: surprise: it’s Colorado…it’s cold at night.

    I have a feeling those “eyes” that everybody feels watching them are coming from the lady who owns the property.
    I swear she never sleeps.

    I’ve lived down the road my whole life. I’ve tried to find ghosts there. I want to believe the rumors, but everything is so inconsequential that it’s hard to convinve myself that spirits were to blame.
    Cold spots – I would blame on location.
    Falling – like Rusticus said, your friend probably just tripped. There are rocks, divets, and small, random graves that might get in the way of proper walking.
    Apparitions – I hope so. Like I said, I want to believe it.

    I know there’s spirits wandering on Bingham Hill. My brother & cousin went there with their friends one night in 1996. They said they felt presence and they felt they were being followed and watched by invisible spirits.

    I pretty much grew up there in that cemetery. If you don’t believe, who gives a shit. Go somewhere else. Let the people have their fun. Haunted or not. The old woman who runs the place is a very kind person, let her be as well. Why don’t you try staying the night in the cemetery alone. I have many times. Lets see what you got tough guy. ~Boogedy

    I’ve lived in fort Collins the majority of my life, and I’ve been to Bingham Hill many times, as a matter of fact my boyfriends band name is Bingham Hill because of it. He and their vocalist lived there for years. Theres so many stories I dont think I could even type them all.

    From the things that run across the river there, to the chair, to the orb i saw there last week.

    It’s real, theres a lot of things said about it that aren’t true, just people wanting to have a story to tell.

    you can check it out, something doesnt happen every night, but often enough.

    Also, if you’re that into it, you can check out the nature center. Again with the way too many stories, but I have one, thats possibly the most terrifying thing that Ive ever witnessed, and it wasnt even the ghost. But what it did..

    Well lets say first off, you should really learn how to speak, or maybe just type?

    Cause you sound fuckin retarded.

    Second of all, why are you even on this page if you dont believe in ghosts? I would assume that this would be of no interest to you then. So I’m gonna go with the fact that you have no life and decided that starting shit with people on a meaningless forum would be fun because you can’t get ass.

    oh and the people here obviously do want to hear it, hence why its a forum about it.

    i’ve been there numerous times at night. other then a couple of wierd lights every now its really nothing. except one night when we we’re literally chased out by what seemed like a ghost. my friend was in the back of line and we could all this “ghost” but said he could literally feel the womans foot steps behind him.

    I went there last night with some friends…i was really excited cause i have watched ghost hunters and stuff like that on the travel channel. When we finally found it we didn’t have any flashlights. When we arrived it was pretty scary, but really interesting. I sat in the chair that they say spirits sit in and at first i was freaked out, but then when i sat there for a second and went to get up i felt a hand grab my arm….so yes i do believe in spirits and that they do walk in that cemetery….I went back today in the day light and i was so interested in all the grave stones, and spirits left behind that i will be reading more about this interesting place.

    I have lived in Laporte for several years on McConnell Dr right across the street from a decendant of Jennie Brown who is buried in the cemetary. I have always been interested in old cemetaries more because of how they look than anything else. I never really believed in the whole “ghost” thing. Thought the idea was kind of stupid to be honest. Until I when there. Over the years i have been there dozens of times. Day and night and had never felt anything until one of the last times I was there. We had been out and about one day with my kids and decided to stop by and I had my camera on me and was taking pics of the kids out there when my two year old was walking by one of the kids graves just stopped dead in his track and became very upset pointing at the ground and kept saying baby, baby and would not walk over the grave. we got him away from it and then tried a few minutes later to take him back over there and again he started crying and pointing and saying baby. so we didn’t really know what to think so we just kept him away. I continued to take pictures and I took two pictures of one of the fenced in plots, one right after the other and in the second one there was the brightest i don’t know how to explain it, almost like a flash back at me that was the size of a person taller than the fence. I didn’t know what to think of it. It started to drizzle a couple of minutes later so we decided to leave. we were walking through the trees towards our car when I suddenly felt like i was being followed and it really
    freaked me out. I have never been back there since. I do want to go back there because it has always been so peaceful for me. So you can imagine after reading the story it creeped me out to see that I am not the only person that this has happened to. You can’t say that something isn’t haunted just because you have not had an experience. I was a non believer prior to this because I had been there so many times with no incidence. Maybe the ghosts out there just don’t freakin like you!

    Jessey, thank you for sharing. Wow, your story is so interesting. Please keep us updated if you ever go back to that place. I was there a few times. I never see anything except one day I felt cold a little bit on the warm evening. It made my hair on neck stood up so I hurrily walked fast and left. Werid.

    Hi. I am very familiar with Bingham Hill and love to go up there to get some peace and quiet. It’s a lovely place to go relax and enjoy the day. However, I have had a few experiences up there. My brother and I had gone up to Bingham Hill for the afternoon. I’d heard about the shed in the back of the grave yard being ‘cursed’. I just wanted to see what was inside. So we went in and it was dark, so I was using my phone as a light. It went off and and I couldn’t turn it back on. As soon as we left, my phone came back on. Weird stuff. Then theres a few pictures I caught during the day. Bright day. Not in the middle of the night with a flash on. I caught two orbs. On picture was near the neighboring fence with the white crosses. Its and interesting pic. Then there was a white object behind the bushes near the shed and the stones with (almost) everyone’s names on it. I was half way across the cemetery when it was taken. The next pic showed the same thing. Then after that it was gone. Pretty cool stuff. But I honestly don’t believe they’re hostile, just lonely.

    I’ve gone there a few times hoping to have some wierd experience while also making sure to respect the people buried there as much as possible, but nothing ever happened. I still believe but I guess I’ve never been susceptable to paranormal experience even though I always kept an open mind. There were a few gravestones that really interested me. Three children, all related, buried in a row. They all died the same year (not sure if it was the same day or not) and their mother was buried in the next plot up years later. I always wondered if they died of sickness, if their mother killed them, or was it something else…? If you’d like to check out what I’m refering to it in the back by the fence on the side closest to the road, near the big stone that lists the names of the people buried there. I haven’t been back in quite a while, but I would like to visit again soon.

    sounds kinda weird, but i got hot, really hot…it was windy and a little chilly today…i felt as if i was going to kill somebody after i signed the book, there were chills going in and out of my body …idk what the hell it was but i feel i was posessed the whole time i was there, and the car ride home…
    my boyfriend witnessed my eyes being fully dialated…i dont remember much, but he could tell something was wrong. We were looking for his grandmothers grave…i turned around and saw a white cross with the name in red written all over it…i walked up a little closer, and the name was carved into the wood and you couldnt have possibly seen it from where i was originally standing…i guess they said i was saying a bunch of stuff i wouldntve said normally…they were weirded out…when we got home back to foco, i woke up and found myself at his house laying in bed…that was at about 5 p.m….its 12:30 A.M…..im still weirded out….never again will i set foot NEAR that place…

    im a shy person…i wouldnt hurt a fly, i dont lie EVER,
    i dont get why i had a devil in me…
    some things can never be answered……..

    I’m heading up there on Saturday morning. I have always been very in touch with the spirits around me. So much so that I stopped traveling a road because there were so many spirits on it. I almost ran my car off that particular road many times because of people that weren’t really there.

    I’m very excited to visit the cemetary!! I’ll check back in after the weekend and let you know if anything interesting happened.

    i went there just last night! we booked it out of there! i have a question…how many benches are there????? not including the devils chair…

    anyway, we saw and heard some scary shit! our friend dede started freaking out…we heard screaming and some other people thought it was us because we were running, but we were only yelling. the screams we heard sounded like a fricking girl screaming at the top of her lungs…scariest part is..at first it was heard infront of us at the big tree then heard behind us at the old farm. we began to run when dede was freaking out because he was like, “RUN! HURRY THE FUCK UP! THERE’S A FUCKING BLACK DEMON BEHIND US! GO NOW! RUN!” and we looked back and saw this almost black blob and later this other guy said that was billy whoever the fuck billy is! and aparently dede accidently kicked a grave when they went back there to see what was going on and they saw billy again and that was when the guy was like “that’s billy you guys might wanna run now, he’s pissed off at something..they’re all pissed off just go…” and they came running and yelling to the car “GET IN THE FUCKING CAR!!! NOW!!! GO!!!” so we all booked it! we literally just drove off at like fifty miles per hour we were scared! and the scarier thing was that we didn’t know what was going on.

    I have always heard kids in school talk about going up to Brigham Hill out of bordum looking for ghosts, but it took me long enough to finally get my ass up there.
    I have never experienced anything supernormal, but I’m open to the thought of ghosts and spirits and such.
    Some friends and I went through the nature center to visit some black shadowy thing they call their little friend. We sat and looked into the area that they usually see it. I honestly saw nothing. Apparently it gets bigger when it feels threatened and has chased people off in the past.
    After sitting for a while we continued on towards the cemetery. I saw nothing scarey, but heard rustling in the grass and behind bushes when I was standing by myself.
    We sat on the benches and thought we saw people walking towards us from the road. Again, I saw nothing. We all crouched down and sent one of our friends up to check it out. After a few minutes we heard him call back for someone else to come up with him to see what he saw.
    The rest of us waited. A few minutes later the kid that went up after the first cam running back towards us. He said that the first kid saw something spazzing out on the ground and then stood up and was very dark and very very tall. Then the other kid came running towards us and said that what he saw was angry and we needed to leave.
    We walked back through the nature center and there was apparently the dark friend following us out… but I still have yet to meet the friend.
    The people I was with said that they have been there often and have experienced some freaky shit. The dark friend had chased them out many times, has thrown huge boulders at them, etc. One of them got lost and when eveyone found him he was passed out in the middle of a road.
    They also have been freaked out by a donkey near the cemetery and is not there during the day.
    So, I believe their stories, but kinda hope to actually see for myself one day/night.

    My husband and I have been exploring local history and so we went to Birmingham
    Cemetery. It was a little difficult to find. Look for a small brown sign with a
    mailbox. We took the path beside the river and it lead to the Cemetery. It was around 8pm. The date, which I noticed later was 6-6. We got lots of orbs and flashes of lights in our pictures. Also, focus was messed, up but we did manage to get some clear ones. So it got dark, the mosquitos were eating us alive, I had to go to the bathroom, and it was time to leave. We headed back down the path and I sensed an immediate danger, on the wood planks. I asked my husband to pick it up. He turned around and got a picture with at least 9 orbs in it. So wish I could post it. Interesting trip, but don’t go at night !!!!

    I’ve never seen an orb in real life or in a photo. Gail & Jeff Spencer- do you have a web page or something to post the picture on? That would be awesome to see 9 orbs in one picture!

  30. June 11, 2009 at 2:56 pm

    I told my friend about the “evil” presence I experienced and she opened up and told me about her
    little boy who was so traumatized by it, he had to see a therapist for a while. I would go back to the cemetery part, but NO WAY will I go down that
    path again. Ever!!

    Dear Holiday,
    I have tons of orb and other pictures I would like to show you, but they basically are a round circle, different sizes, hurricane looking (like my wedding was) bright neon wrappings, or shadowy faces. Got them all. So photographers, like myself are always trying to catch the one that’s going to prove it. Other people record sounds, energies etc. Whatever your investigation methods, I can tell you from experience, it’s really hard to proove. That’s why we keep doing it. There are even some out there that would be called conclusive, but there is always someone saying it was “just the light”. Maybe, maybe not?

    But also, it’s more about the “shared feeling”.

    When I visit a place, I don’t like to read about it, so I can test my instincts to be true. Then I go to the internet and see what other people said. And 9 times out of 10, they all had the same “feeling”. How is that? How do all these people, share the same feeling who have never met each other??? And the reason they even go to the internet, is because they wanted to know what happened out there.

    If you’re not feeling, sensing or seeing anything,
    that’s OK, because for those who do….it’s not always a blessing.

    On the other hand if you want to increase your
    senses, just tune into it by hightening your awareness. Listen. It will come if you want it.
    But I caution you in a Christian manner.
    Never provoke a spirit. You can even talk to it
    if you want (when nobody’s around). using a caring sort of speach.

    I wanted to tell you also, that I heard there was a satanic house somewhere around the property. This thing on the path is pure evil. Go with caution if you continue to investigate.
    Hope this helps you in your 6th sense.

    I have gone to many places in California with some or no paranormal experiences. After moving to Fort Collins, I am very interested in seeking out new experiences in such a place as this. After doing research of the surrounding areas, I am now planning on making a visit to this place by myself (since I don’t know anyone around here and all of my friends are out-of-state). So if I happen to record anything on my audio or video, I shall post it and place a link on my next posting for those who are interested to view/hear.

    So stay posted within the next 4 weeks!

    So I suppose my friends and I are headed up there tonight! We’ve been in this ghost hunting thing for the last few weeks! We went to Hell’s Tree and took some pictures and we had orbs in our pix! Thinking we might have something in there!
    Anyone know about the circle of trees?

    During my visit, the only things encountered were coyotes crying in the night that do resemble a child crying. I did feel the touching, but it turned out to be spiderwebs that were spreadout from spiders catching the wind to be flown to other destinations. No shadows were seen. There are homes surrounding the cemetary, especially one with an barn in theback near the cemetary….so it may have been the people that use the barn. The homes are so really close to the cemetary that it is difficult to distinguish what may be paranormal……

  37. October 25, 2009 at 4:29 pm


    I have gone up to bingham hill, and havent seen much of the paranormal. Although, I have heard footstops, felt a drastic change in temperature, along with hearing random footsteps.

    What puzzles me, what is that black, pure evil thing in the nature center?

    Also, where is the nature center, is it the barn behind the cemetary? An answer would be much appreciated.

    Many people chose to go there in the month of October because it’s Halloween. Everyone thinks they would see one but it might not happen in that month. It can be happening anytime not just october. Have you tried visiting there after snowfalls? Maybe you will see the ghostly footprints.

    I walked toward to the cemetery. Right before going into that place, there is a big tree with hole, I think that was home for the bees or small animals. It was werid to see bees buzzing a lot at the same time I felt the cold air around me. That day was very warm in the late spring. After I walked out of “cold spot”, it was calm and peaceful. After visiting cemetery I walked back and thought I would go through the area where I sensed the cold spot again but it did not happen. I looked at the hole where the bees buzzed. They were out of sight. Interesting experience.

    Nature Center?

    Any more stories of it? Location?

  40. November 11, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    I am not sure about the nature center? But i do know that most of the houses are privately owned. One of the houses is by a woman named Rose Brinks. She is the person who cleaned up the cemetery after about 70 years of being neglected and has done extensive research on who has been buried there and interviewed their families. If your curious she has a book out about it.

    I have heard a number of different stories about the cemetery being haunted but have not felt it myself. Word of caution of you decide to go visit: make sure to park on the road, and dont go onto the surrounding properties as the individuals who own those properties have been known to call the cops on “trespassers”.

    I am currently working with the Fort Collins Museum on an exhibit on the Bingham Hill Cemetery for them, so if your curious, keep an ear open about it.

    Coming from Fort Collins, go to the stop light in Laporte. Turn left at this stop light and go until you come to a side street on your right, the side street will be not too far beyond the little pull off near the river where you can park and have picnics, take a walk along a Nature Trail etc. Take this right and go approx. 1/4 mile. It will be to your right just as your starting to go up a slight hill. There is a home directly across from where you will park. The cemetary is not directly on the road, you have to walk back about 50 yards or so, so it makes it hard to find especially at night. But there is a small sign if you look for it. It is definitely an interesting place to check out.

    This is defiantly a weird place. I went there with my boyfriend about a year ago. He said he felt a weird energy and he said he felt like we were being followed. There was a group of kids there but they were showing no interest in us. I felt a little weird too. I could feel someone watching me but like i said the others there were not even paying any attention to us. wile reading a grave I felt this cold hand gently grab my shoulder. I looked back thinking it was my boyfriend but he was more than 10 feet behind me. A few minutes later the group of teenagers that was there (the only others at the time) started freaking out and running back to their car. I don’t have a clue what happened to them but some of the bigger tougher looking guys looked skared out of there mind. It was a strange experience.

    hey, so we’re the most recent that went up there so far (look at date) and we didn’t have very many things happen to us. However, the feeling of being watched and followed was very present on the walk up there, but not in the actual cemetery. Though, we didn’t know anything about the history, we both got the exact words correct, even the suicide. We didn’t have any of this bullshit of hands on us, or glowing orbs, no. We had the feeling of more peacefulness rather like Jessey had said, so that made us feel a little less weird. But I (Nateal) think that they don’t mess with people that just go up there for history and for the walk, they mess with people that mess with THEM. And I (Mel) think that it’s a peaceful cemtery in the first place. So, sorry for the essay, but these are just some thoughts. =]

    I just discovered this blog… interesting variety of experiences! I lived in LaPorte 1995-2002 and used to visit the Bingham Hill Cemetary every few months, usually with one or both of my children. I always enjoyed visiting the place. I never had any specific paranormal or negative experiences there, but I do remember feeling the “presence” of those who used to live on that land. For the most part, I felt a sense of peace, as if most there rested in peace–but I sensed sadness around some of the graves (where children were buried). I was really fascinated with the history, and read Rose Brinks’ excellent book a number of times. I am curious to revisit the place and see if my experience would be any different now.

    I beg to differ.I went there a couple months ago with my sister and niece. They were scared to go without me. Before entering the cemetery I made a remark about not believing in ghosts. We entered the cemetery and starting taking photos and looking around. When we were about to leave it got extremely cold to where you could seee our breath, moments after the temperature dropped I saw a man in white running past the grave stones near the entrance, thinking it was a bored college student I grabbed my flash light and directed it toward the running man, I was going to yell something like ” Got ya, nice try ” but as my flashlight got closer to the running figure he disappeared into thin air. We waited around for about 3 or 4 minutes after seeing the ghost and the temperature started to get warmer. NO JOKE the place IS haunted

    I visited this beautiful cemetery and didn’t get to experience any paranormal or any ‘cold spots’ or anything of that nature. This is an awesome place to visit and is gorgeous…with the walk way along the river it is worthy of some gorgeous picture taking…again NO paranormal or anything…just beautiful scenery…

    You can chose to believe or not, to those who judge before going well you have no right to be talking, but I’m a local, lived in Fort Collins my whole life. Finally the other night decided to go to this place, granted we were all skeptical at first. Granted it’s Colorado and it’s October and I know it get cold, there was a huge temp drop once we were walking around, to the point were i was shivering and we could see our breathe. You cold also hear some odd sounds, once it got so loud we all jumped, it sound like a girl laughing, and I was the only girl there and it wasn’t me! We also had our phones with us to take videos and pictures, but every time we tried the picture would look fogged over, and there was no fog or anything to do this, we did experience some really odd things, and I’m eager to go back sometime to maybe see more. Beleive it or not, its your choice but don’t knock it till you’ve been.

    Dont get me wrong im not saying that there are no ghost or spirits out there but i think the people that go after reading the article about the cementary they have it in there heads thats what they read is what is going to happen so they kinda make there bodys feel all the symptons of what they people say. um also for the girl that went there idk how to explain they way those things happen to maybe you were scared so you just thought all that stuff.

    Oh i have a question if no one knew where this place was at then how is everyone writing about it? thats were i get lost.

    But im not telling you guys that its not true or that you shouldnt believe it so you believe what you want to ok those are just my thoughts about what i read on this place ok..

    I went with my neighbor and her brother, he was interested in trying to get a few E.V.P. When we got there (where it was supposed to be) it was dark and we could not find an entrance.
    We made our way down the road east to a gate blocking access to the irrigation ditch road. After following the road north, north west for about 150-200 yards we saw 2 small blue lights floating over the water lazily moving farther upstream, one of them descended into the grass on the other side of the ditch and the other floated away back up the hill to the cemetery.
    My neighbors brother was the one who wanted to find spirits, however he was the first one to try to debunk what we saw. He claimed the one that touched the ground was an LED on a security system, but that doesn’t explain the one that floated away. Also why would anyone put a security system monitor next to a ditch full of water to protect a graveyard with almost nothing in it that has an entrance that is not blocked (easier to find in the day)…

    The blue lights you saw are from a security system…it could be from any of the houses in the near vicinity, including the farm that is right next door…I am sure they have had problems with trespassers due to this cemetary.

    Okay, we didn’t believe in the haunting stories. Now we might… we were there with our teenage kids on Halloween night. We were fine, didn’t feel anything scary until we got to the far end of the cemetery and then there was a movement, we thought we saw a figure and then we heard a very loud female scream. Our kids ran, we ran after them. When we got to the gate, she screamed again. We didn’t hear laughter or giggling afterwards. So was this someone trying to scare us or was this paranormal? Anyone there that night? around 9:00? Anyone?

    This is very interesting. The land that the cemetery sits was originally owned by John Provost he built a house on the property and was married to an indian woman who he buried in the cemetery my suspicion is that it was at one time an indian burial ground at on time. So based upon those facts, the woman with the leathers is not far fetched. I know this property as my great grandfather Rowland Herring purchased the property from Provost in the 1800s. When Grandview was developed many of the remains were moved. That alone would stir some ghosts. captainbevo

    I’m a parapsychologist and a natural psychic. I’m going to visit and I’ll report back my experience. It’s frustrating the lack of information on the actual location of this place – everyone seems to spend an inordinate amount of time on their experiences, or lack of…but no one actually says WHERE THIS PLACE IS! The truth of paranormal phenomena is that some people are more sensitive to it than others. Two people can be standing in a room and one may feel something while they other does not. Most of the stories here remind me of the goofy ones we told around campfires in Girl Scouts. There is also a great deal of subliminal suggestion that can come into play. You can read up on this in Lloyd Auerback’s books. He was at the site of the Amityville Horror investigation and details the ridiculous behavior of people running through the house, screaming “Can you feel it?” and all sorts of other nonsense. That panic behavior infects other and can convince them they experienced something when the only thing they really went through was an illusion created in their own minds. I will update my findings at a later point.

    Incidentally, you are just as likely to see a ghost or experience paranormal phenomena in broad daylight as you are at night. The only thing the darkness does is make you more susceptible to suggestion that you are experiencing or seeting something you aren’t.

    For those who do not know where the cemetary is located: It is a few miles South of LaPorte. From Laporte, head South on N. Overland Trail then go West on Bingham Hill Rd. Head West for about 1/4 mile or less. The cemetary is located on the right side of the road next to a river bend. There are homes around the cemetary, so be respectful to the cemetary and the people living around the area. Keyword: Respectful.

    Gabe: Thank you for the directions. I promise that I will be respectful to the land and the residents. It must be difficult for anyone living near a place with a notorious reputation or even one of historical value. My motivation is actually an attempt to clear up a bit of a mystery. I rent a home in Fort Collins and that I am sharing with 2 ghosts, a young woman and man. The woman is approximately 19, blonde, (hair pulled into a bun) and wearing clothing I would associate with pioneers. The male looks to be in his mid to late 20s, also in period clothing, with dark hair. In trying to understand their presence, I first tried researching the development where I live. The only thing I turned up was that it used to be a ranch. Well, that’s typical of most, if not all the developments in the area. However, the female ghost actually communicated they have something to do with LaPorte. I’m hoping just going to the area may bring some … I don’t know. I’m going by instinct. But I will definitely be sensitive to the needs of those in the area.

    Historical cemeteries are often haunted. In the situations I’ve experienced communications with restless spirits (including seeing them and communicating with them via clairaudience), the cemetery is on the location of a battlefield. For instance, many Civil War battlefields are now part of state and national parks and include cemeteries where the fallen soldiers are buried. Many of these places are still home to the spirits of fallen soldiers who haven’t realized time has passed.

    Ghosts can definitely project feelings that humans may feel as hostile. However, other than causing fear, they won’t be able to hurt you. Let me clarify. If someone feels spooked (pun intended) and gets scared and begins running without looking where they are going, and they trip and fall and get hurt…the ghost did not hurt you – your own lack of watching where you were going did.

    It’s also advisable to be respectful to the spirits and not shout or scream at them to go to the light. They were human as well and depending where they are in their post-mortal transition, may still feel very human emotions, including confusion and disorientation. In point of fact, some of them don’t realize they’ve passed on. So it pays to be respectful all the way around.

    I’ve noticed many people in this string and another (about a hell tree and hanging and all that) … they talk about feeling uneasy or feeling something uncomfortable. This is where a true psychic sensitive is needed. A psychic sensitive will be able to differentiate the source of such a feeling. Have you ever heard the saying “The tension was so thick you could have cut it with a knife?” That’s describing a scenario where bystanders were able to pick up on feelings of tension from others. They detected it, perhaps walking into a room immediately after two people had an argument?

    I’ve read about property owners next to the cemetery. I’ve read of past vandalism. I imagine the people living around that cemetery have not always been happy about what’s gone hand in hand with living near a local legend, as it were. So, if you’re in the cemetery and feeling uneasy – especially at night – perhaps you are picking up on the anger and frustration from a nearby resident who may even see you out there and assume you’re up to no good…and will call the cops. After all, they don’t want their own property damaged and it really irks people when others are disrespectful to property – vandals, etc.

    Another time energy isn’t necessarily what it seems is when you get emotional impressions left over years of people with a certain emotion going over and over. For instance, anyone who has been to the memorial at Pearl Harbor will certainly feel the solemn energy. It’s not a place that would encourage joking and laughing. Some individuals may claim the spot is haunted by the men who died there. Not likely. More likely is that the people are picking up uneasiness and sadness and regret and a host of other emotions emanating from the visitors…not deceased spirits.

    An experienced sensitive – that’s the point – they are sensitive enough to discriminate between the various sources that result in such feelings and will be able to dismiss what is caused by non-spirit sources, such as thought form energy and human emotion imprint.

    This is why training and experience are paramount for true paranormal investigative work. (Along with a healthy dose of logic and reason).

    Hobbyists and amateurs aren’t usually capable of making such distinctions.

    And finally – occam’s razor definitely comes into play. The simplest solution is often the correct one. Don’t be so quick to eliminate non-haunted causes … there can often be logical explanations … though truthfully, sometimes that explanation IS that a place is haunted.

    Hello all, this thread about ghost activity/inactivity is very interesting. I am very intrigued with this cemetery now in reading this. If any of you would like to meet up for a ghost hunt let me know, I feel that I am sensitive to paranormal energies and would love to test it here…

  69. Eli
    April 18, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    In my experience, the most common reason spirits stick around is because they are watching over the ones still left. Sometimes they remain because they have “unfinished business.” This is usually information they need to provide to someone left alive. They are able to communicate either directly or through someone sensitive, who can act as a translator. I medium, if you will. I’ve done this before and passed information along. In my experience, the spirits have initiated the contact, either through dreams when I was young or direct contact when I was older and my abilities had developed and strengthened.

    It is rare for a cemetery to be haunted, and most aren’t. However, historical cemeteries that were something else, such as a battlefield often are.

    Some spirits honestly don’t realize they’ve died. They can be quite confused and when you tell them they are dead, they don’t always react well. They don’t react with anger, it’s usually confusion or sadness or shock.

    There are those who have passed over but don’t move on because, in their words (as they have communicated to me more than once) “…where would I go?”

    Spirits are not held to the place where they passed away. For instance, those who perished when the Titanic went down aren’t out swimming in the freezing North Atlantic ocean. Since people are dead long before they are buried, it isn’t logical to expect them to be in a cemetery. However…

    Again, if we look back to historical times when there wasn’t a lot of time between a death and a burial, not to mention it all happened relatively close to where the person passed on, it can be more common for a spirit to hang around the area.

    Paranormal phenomenon is actually exciting and fascinating, but rarely dramatic or crisis-invoking. The stuff on TV is so hyped up and laughable I don’t even bother watching it.

    It’s entertainment and should be viewed as such.

    Ghost hunting can be fun but… not everyone is going to sense anything or feel anything. That may lead some to insist ghosts don’t exist. They do. Think of the law of conservation of energy/matter – energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it simply changes form.

    Just because someone doesn’t believe in it or hasnt’ experienced it doesn’t make it not true. Telling spooky stories on a dark autumn night can be fun but it’s best to keep things on the ground…

    I was able to solve the mystery of the two spirits in my home – more in a moment…

    April 18, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    I was initially frustrated with the lack of historical records that would shed insight into why I had two spirits, dressed in pioneer clothing, hanging out in my house. One other occupant had seen them and our descriptions matched perfectly. The female had communicated to me that she’d passed from a fever. She told me she was tied to LaPorte somehow. She mentioned “stage coach.” Before this weekend, I had no idea LaPorte was on the Overland Trail and was indeed a coach stop. Even so, I wondered why it was that she was on our property and not over there. She wanders around looking confused, as if she isn’t quite sure why she is here or where here is.

    This housing area used to be the site of a ranch. Turns out a wagon trail went directly by the property…right next to the ranch. I discovered that as far west as Fort Morgan, travelers would stop at ranches that were close to the various stage stops, for supplies, a meal, lodging. These were not official stage stops but people did stop at them due to their proximity to the trails.

    My theory is that this woman and her companion (I get the sense they are related but not husband and wife) were headed for LaPorte, perhaps to pick up a stage going further west or south. They stopped, perhaps because the young woman was ill. She passed on here and doesn’t understand why they never got to LaPorte.

    What was particularly intriguing was that another sensitive, who has not seen the spirits, said to me, “There’s a gate here and they’re trapped.” It wasn’t until yesterday that I learned LaPorte means “gate” (also doorway, I know) in French.

    This suggests the female spirit is projecting the energy that she should be at LaPorte – the gate – but she is stuck here – unable to get there.

    I’m going to try to contact this spirit and try to communicate that LaPorte is miles from here … and perhaps get her to move on altogether…

    April 19, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Okay – so I took a fellow sensitive and visited the cemetery. Yep, it’s definitely occupied by those who are part of the celestial realm. In other words, definitely haunted. Quite a bit, as a matter of fact. My companion actually became aware of them before I did. He sees them. I sense them and hear them. I actually can see them too but this time I did not. I will detail my initial exploration.

    The tree out front has no spirit energy connected to it. I sensed nothing on the path approaching the cemetery. I was quite far in and my companion was actually ahead of me before anything took place. I was at the point where there is a cement sqare on the right side (as you are walking away from the road) that looks as if it’s a broken building or something and there are several old headstones in it, including one that is resting directly against the side closest to the road. When I reached that point my companion came back and said “I see lots of ghosts. They are all over the place.” I told him to keep going and I just meandered through, not seeing anything and not sensing anything initially.

    I didn’t sense anything until I got to the upper left corner (my back to the road). There is a grave there and as I approached it I felt very bad. The energy around that grave is very bad. It’s a death that shouldn’t have happened. That could mean murder or suicide or it could mean a car accident or something else senseless. I sensed youth – perhaps 19? Anger and violence too. Not sure if that was the person who passed or if a relative or friend had recently visited the grave and left an emotional imprint.

    I left the spot and returned 2 more times and each time I felt very bad – uncomfortable – like the anger and negativity was seeping into me. Since I am sensitive to such energies I just left the area rather than try to lock in on it and figure it out (pick and choose your battles as it were). As I began moving through the rest of the cemetery on the other side (right side as you are facing the road) I began to sense more spirits. I didn’t sense them over every area. When I got back to the place with the broken square with the headstones in it I heard them. I felt when they tuned into me (it feels like pressure – like in an airplane cabin that’s been pressurized and your ears haven’t popped yet). They were laughing and one of them – I sensed they were children or young teens and one was an adult. The adult (male) tried to make his laugh sinister. I told him to save his energy for someone who cared. I’m not afraid of ghosts. He shut up immediately.

    I began walking toward the center, where there is a headstone that is broken with a new one is nearby. The person who died – I think it said he was 69 years old? Anyway, as I got toward the area that is on the other side of it – away from the road? There are several small old red headstones, one after the other? I felt the spirits there – they were bored. That was what I felt. Boredom. That was a surprise to me as it’s not an emotion I’ve felt before from ghosts.

    As I was leaving – as soon as I stepped out of the cemetery proper and onto the wooden path that leads you back to the road – I instantly lost contact with the spirits. They are definitely limited to the cemetery itself and to very specific areas within the cemetery.

    Later, I asked my companion about what he saw. He said there were both males and females but mostly males. He said they seemed “normal” meaning they weren’t angry or sad. He said the ones he saw wore old-fashioned clothing.

    I noticed he wouldn’t go near that back corner. He’d been over there before I had. I saw him jump back before he actually got over to the grave, quickly turn, and walk away. It was clear he also felt something negative “icky” there. That’s my report.

    I’ll likely go back on another visit for comparative purposes.

  72. Eli
    April 20, 2011 at 8:24 am

    btw: Just because I felt “bad” over in a certain area doesn’t mean the person who is interred there was bad. I really went over this last night and again this morning. It’s not clear to me and I’ll likely go back and try to analyze it. It was such an unpleasant feeling for me that I didn’t want to stay in the area. I actually would like to understand it, it’s in my nature to.

    I kept getting the feeling of victim. I also “saw” and “felt” shock and an “oh bleep” … It was so odd and different than what I’ve experienced before. It was even different than belligerence. This honestly didn’t seem to be coming from the person buried there but someone related to it somehow – meaning someone there when it happened or … it’s really difficult to explain.

    What it isn’t is an angry spirit. I’ve dealt with those more than once in Civil War cemeteries. In fact, just last September I had one – an infantry man who was belligerent. When he growled at me I replied “You must be from the losing side.” He didn’t frighten me but he was trying to.

    This one that I felt here? Different than that. Who knows? It’s a mystery, that’s for certain.

    The other spirits – as I said – some of them bored and others…playful? They think it’s sort of a game “engage the tourist” type? I really got the impression they thought it was funny to try and wind up the visitors. It’s an interesting place, that’s for certain.

  73. Eli
    April 21, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I’m pretty certain what I’m picking up on in that one corner is a young male who was hit by a car. For some reason I’m actually seeing it through the eyes of someone who was there. That’s a first. I’ve seen things the spirits project. It’s like a television signal. You can’t unscramble the signal unless you have the right equipment, which natural psychics possess. There are audio signals and video signals, as well as others. Just like in networking, some of the signals can be strong or weak and you may need amplifiers (psychic mediums, etc).

    I keep seeing a group of young adults or older teens standing around staring down at a young man – black hair – on the ground turned away. He was hit by a car I think and I in addition to what I see I can feel the total shock. Silence. Everyone is in total disbelief. I don’t know anything about who is buried in that cemetery (other than a few dates or names) so I don’t know why I pick this up – but that’s what is in that corner.

    What’s interesting about it is that wouldn’t be the spirit I don’t think – it’s actually tne energy of whoever was there. A friend. I’m pretty certain that’s what happened, though.

  74. Eli
    April 22, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Okay, I visited once again and spent some quiet time there really analyzing. Once again, on the approach, I did not detect anything until just before entering the cemetery. A spirit communicated (a male, younger adult) that he was actually outside of the formal cemetery. He said he liked being near the river.

    I made my way up toward that upper left corner and once again, along the way, became aware of spirits over various patches, though not all. Once again, in that upper left area I felt very bad. I walked away and back several times and could never remain. Something truly unfortunate or bad … can’t stay long enough to really figure it out because it was so uncomfortable. I continue to get the feeling it’s a younger male – and fairly recent (relative to the other graves).

    This is significant because there are older graves in the same area.

    Upon walking back toward the car, I heard spirits. They seem to enjoy teasing. I had one actually tap me on the shoulder and when I turned to look, I saw the ghost of a man wearing dark blue kneeling down at a grave. This was about 2/3 of the way into the cemetery (with the road at your back).

    I don’t believe it was the kneeling ghost who tapped me, but another who wanted me to look over and see him.

    I also had an older female spirit tell me she was buried there, close to the river itself, because it was thought she would enjoy being buried near the water, a beautiful peaceful place. She seemed to think it was thoughtful/sweet of them and she was in no way unhappy or upset. She said she was one of the very first people buried there, laid to rest by her family.

    I went back to the two areas where I picked up spirits before. The one in the broken cement square. They didn’t laugh this time. I also went back to the area where they were bored. Yep, a strong feeling of apathy there.

    When I left I once again noticed a distinct demarkation between where I felt things and where it stopped. The moment I stepped onto the wooden walkway the contact stopped. I stepped back onto the dirt and it was there again.

    I walked toward the car and when I reached that area near the water the spirit again said “I’m here.”

    I asked, “Here? Right here?”

    He said, “Yes, I’m here.”


    I returned to the car and left. I didn’t pick up anything in the area. The spirits are in specific places over their graves. With the exception of the one in the upper left, the only spirit energies I saw and felt and heard are the ones who have been there since the late 19th and early 20th century. The more recent ones are not there. Or, at least, I’m not feeling/seeing/hearing them if they are.

    I’ve lived in Ft. Collins for 3 years and tried to find the cemetery the other day with some friends. I’d really like to check it out but don’t exactly know how to get there. I went up bingham hill towards lory state park and looked all over but couldn’t find anything that looked like a pathway to a cemetery. If someone could help me with directions that would be great. I’d like to see what it’s all about.

    Oh geez…. so i have lived in Laporte my whole life and have been to bingham hill cemetary many times. Two of those times i had a weird experience.

    The first time, i felt really cold. My dog kept looking over her shoulder like she was watchin something when there was nothing there. My sister and friend Jordan and i all felt one rock that was warm, while all the rest were cold. Also, when i got home my phone was almost dead and everytime i hit the backbutton it kept saying “go 114.” everytime! my friends phone did it also.

    The second time, i was with my friend Jessica and nothing at first happened. It was her first time there and its cool to explore. I told her about the devils chair and she decided that she wanted to go see it. We went up to it, and she was considering if she wanted to or not. Just when i said “I dont recommend that u do”, the fucking chair made this loud screeching sound, like someone getting or out of the chair. We booked it out of there.

    Very pretty place. Can u dumb people stop breaking all the graves just to get an experience with them? We did, and we havent done anything bad to that place. Just start going more. It will happen eventually

    Rose Brinks is my husbands grandmother and he has been there before but doesn’t believe any of the stories. I’ve lived in
    Ft. Collins my entire life and have never been to the cemetery because I’m too chicken to go alone, and none of my friends have been willing to go with me. I think that I will have my husband go with me this weekend during the day, just to see it. It has always been so interesting to hear about, not just the ghost stories, but the history as well. I would go at night, but I’m pregnant and even if I didn’t experience anything paranormal I’d probably freak myself out so much that I would trip or something and that would not be good. My husband might not believe, but I certainly do! As for the person who was talking about the donkey near the fence of the cemetery that scared them, I’m pretty sure that Rose’s property goes up to the fence of the cemetery, and she and her husband have multiple donkeys and horses,as well as other animals, so it was probably one of their animals. I’m excited to just go look around and explore!

    I am an investigator and have been to the cemetery several times. The first time 4 of our camera’s quit working upon entering the cemetery. After changing batteries some of the group got a couple of pictures before losing battery power again. I got some very interesting orb pictures and met and talked to a man who disappeared (literally) into thin air. One other person saw him also and then he was gone. Messages from a young man who had died and a small boy also came through. There is a lot of paranormal activity in the cemetery…nothing malevolent or demonic…but interesting. It is worth the trip to visit the cemetery during the day or night whether you believe in hauntings or not.

    I have lived in Fort Collins for 21 years and only visited this cemetery once, by myself. I’m really sensitive to energy and I found it difficult to walk past or over certain areas. I def think there are some unmarked graves that kind of intersect the path. It was like my legs were frozen, I could hardly will them to move so I could go by certain graves. I also, like many many other people had the feeling of being watched, and they were standing right behind something, whatever it is it’s more than one entity and they’re close to you. Something screamed at me inside not to go to the back of the cemetery, I have listened to that voice in other explorations I have done, and I am ALWAYS right in doing so (I find out later from local mediums and psychics. I haven’t gone through the nature center, but the person who talked about the “black blob” gave me super chills up and down my spine – that feeling isn’t a positive entity feeling. That’s a demon, and it gets bigger when it scares people because it feeds off of that very negative energy – the ppl working there shouldn’t consider it a “friend”, they pay no mind, therefore not giving it negative energy – those entities were never human and grow from negative energy that it sucks out of people. I knew there was an evil entity there, just one, and all the other things I felt were lonely and sad. After talking with some others who have seen this “black blob” and feeling their energy from it (which was pure terror as they watched it “grow”) I am personally convinced it is what the Catholic church defines as a “demon”. These things are dangerous and can follow you home, even if you are not religious you should say a prayer or blessing before going into a situation with something like this. As people who have been there more than once, there is a “plank” on the wooden walkway that is off balance like the mechanics of a see-saw, and when weight is put on one end it makes a fairly loud “clack” noise. When that voice told me to leave and not go to the back of the cemetery, I started walking back, careful not to step on certain spots. I also kept looking back expecting to see someone right behind me; the “being followed” feeling. Anytime someone gets that feeling in this setting can be reassured that they are being watched – we have these senses for a reason. And anyone who doesn’t believe haven’t evolved enough to unlocked these senses. WAY before I reached that plank that made noise, it slammed down and made a louder clack noise than I did walking on it. That is when I pulled out a quarter and placed it on the little white marker in the front, almost as an offering to say I respect you all but don’t you all think I can be scared by you. As I left I still looked back and I felt like more than one entity was saying “don’t go”. The human essence is lonely, that demon is a predator though. When I got in my car I felt a tug on my jacket and I firmly said “you are not allowed to follow me, only light peace and love can follow me”. I had to keep saying it on the way home as I felt it lingering…I did this for two days before I could shake the feeling something anchored itself to me.

    I am a Fort Collins native and have been there several times and the area and the spirits that are there have never been threatening or violent always mischievous. I am a bit sensitive and I would always go with my friend who can see them, but the only time that I have ever felt nervous and threatened was my last visit to the cemetery. it was about a year ago… my friend and I decided to do some EVP work and parked were you would normally park, and right off the bat you could feel every single soul for that cemetery hanging at the edges and outside of the fence, they were nervous and trying to get us to leave (which is something that we have never felt before). When I say trying to get us to leave I mean a hand coming and grabbing my leg and knocking me over right before we entered the gate. Ignoring this event we walked into the cemetery, and it was dead silent and void of spirits. We hesitated around the entrance for about 15 mins (there is a bench in that area). After these 15 mins we both felt like someone was coming at us very violently. This was not a spirit that came at us but a real man dressed in head to toe black all we could see was his eyes. We ran out of there as fast as we could by the time we got to the car we realized that we had interrupted a summoning ceremony for something that what my friend believes was a lower level and very powerful demon. In retrospect we should have listened to our feelings and never have gone into the cemetery that night.
    The main point to the story is please be careful going out there if something is icky and a miss do not take it lightly and beware of people doing stupid things.

    This may shock some people but what about the story on here with the lady and her two year old being able to see a baby and freaking out? My husband and I just moved here. I used to go to bingham and take pics in my teen years and got orbs and crying, screams etc. I was scared running out of there a couple times. Definitely either the keeper or the big black mass everyone talks about. It was frightening. We visited a few days ago.. still many people signing that book and visiting daily thats for sure. The chair has been moved since I last saw it. Anyway back to the topic. My 2 year old did that but she was a little bit different about it. She def said baby a million times but would say ohhh awww in a sad way and would do her fake cry she does when she wants attention.. only she didnt do it to me she aimed it at an infant grave. Now that doesnt make sense babies couldnt wander could they? but if theres many babies and children who did die from the flu in the 1800s then i think my daughter witnessed something. My husband was doing evp sessions throughout the entire cemetery. He even noticed our kid acting weird and acting sad towards the graves. she kept wanting to go to the corner that eli pointed out up there- so im glad i grabbed her and we left. It is super peaceful and very sad I wish I could find some antique baby toys for the kids.. I know that the adults have got to be the mourning parents. I want to visit again too because I just want to be there and help them not be lonely they can tease and scare me as long as i get to hold a childs hand.. creepy right. but its so sad to know that the paranormal just hangs out but the river all day feeling lost…

    Im heading there tonight with a couple people, i have been there once before and didnt notice anything out of the ordinary. Just a couple cold spots and and a creepy feeling but doesnt mean i still dont believe. Ive been to a small shack called the platt house in plattville behind the big power station and have had random objects thrown at us. A creepy little girls voice on a recorder, numerous people have herd a old womens voice. Another weird feeling is on the small path there all the trees are green but every tree around the shack is dead.

    My friends and I went there last Sunday and I had my recorder on the whole time we were there and I got some strange things on there. I even got a man introduce himself to us. The site where the Journalist is buried. He talked right over us to tell us his name.

    I also got a recording of someone saying help please help. I believe there are tortured souls there wanting to cross over but somehow can’t. There was another part of the recording where someone was trying to say something but couldn’t understand what. This cemetery is a sad one. So many unmarked graves, not knowing who they are, but one particular site called me and it was the fenced in one with the cross. I don’t know why but it was tugging at me. I took a pic of it but for some reason, the sadness from that one was just overwhelming. But there are definitely some sad points to that cemetery.
