KUSA - It’s Halloween, and what better way to celebrate than to take a look at Denver’s haunted history?

Reporter Colleen Ferreira stopped by the Denver Firefighters Museum, a more than 100-year-old building that has its share of spooky stories.

It was originally constructed in 1909 at 1329 Tremont Pl. The building was an operating fire station for 60 years – and some believe it’s the home of ghosts named Tom and Caleb.

Tom is believed to be the spirit of a former fire department employee who ghost hunters say “is a benevolent, if occasionally mischievous, individual,” according to the museum’s website. He is sometimes heard shuffling papers, ringing bells and causing trouble with the office printers.

Caleb has a slightly more tragic history.

He’s believed to have died near the site of the museum, and was even supposed buried on site. There’s an area at the museum called “Caleb’s closet” where workers say the air is known to feel heavy and they have had that odd sensation of being watched.
