ABOUT "The Ghosts of The Molly Brown House"
For many their first paranormal encounter with the ghost was about 20 years ago. Please follow along as you will feel like you are along this journey with someone you was there 20 years ago and witnessed her ghost and everything you are about to hear...... It is an amazing place full of history and a warmth that cannot be described. During the tour, we passed a bedroom on the upper floor. I smelled a light floral scent for a split second before it was gone. No one else noticed it and I said nothing. I didn’t think too much about it and quickly forgot about it until my next visit. I was so enthralled with Molly Brown the legend that I decided to visit the museum again a year later. This time I took a walking tour of haunted Denver which included a visit to Molly’s Denver mansion. When we went upstairs I did not smell the floral scent as I had during my first visit, but a woman in the tour asked her friend if she smelled roses? The tour guide smiled and said – “Ah yes, that is our friendly ghost!” She explained that they believe it to be Molly or another female attached to the location. The ghost makes herself known by sharing her favorite rose scented perfume. I remembered smelling the same thing myself on the first tour, but this time I could not pick it up. I was a little disappointed but very excited to learn the tale of ghost. Many years later I would take a friend to visit the house once again. This time she smelled the roses and once again, I did not. I stayed behind the tour group until I caught a scent of the perfume myself and then, satisfied, ran to catch up with the tour guide. I’m sure everyone must’ve found me a bit strange! Then again, I doubt they evennoticed my absence. This ghost and others in The Molly Brown House make themselves known to the volunteers and staff that work there. They are all kind spirits who do not disrupt the day to day happenings in the museum, too much. molly-brown-museum-denverSome people have reported sightings of the ghosts of Molly and her husband James Joseph Brown inside the mansion, but I have only ever run into the flowery female spirit, unless it is James who likes wearing the rose scented perfume! Hmmm… now there’s a thought! There are several other accounts of ghost sightings and disturbances inside the home of Molly Brown. There have been sightings of Molly’s mother in an upstairs window, some have smelled Mr. Brown’s tobacco (smells seem to figure prominently in the Brown house hauntings), and others have witnessed furniture disturbances inside the house. If you are in the Denver, Colorado area I highly recommend you take a tour of the Molly Brown House Museum and see what you see, or sense, or smell! If nothing else, it will be a great step back into time with a wonderful historic Denver legend – The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
Suitable for all guests and families (HALLOWEEN FUN)
