Which Place is the Most Haunted in Flagstaff?

When leading a group of tourists (whether local or otherwise) through downtown, one question invariably comes up: Which building do you think is most haunted?

Each guide has their own answer, based on hearing stories second-hand, actively exploring old haunts and eerie incidents that have happened on their tours. Personally, I’ve heard compelling stories from local sources about the Flagstaff Public Library that chilled me to the bone. I also led two separate groups through its parking lot that captured EVP’s and orbs that were freakishly frightening and convincing.

That said, I’ve been leaning more toward Theatrikos –or more accurately, the Doris Harper White Playhouse–as a contender for Flagstaff Arizona’s Scariest Haunt (or, the FLASH award.)

Full disclosure, I’ve been involved in various activities inside the Playhouse on and off since 1996, so I have a slant. The building itself is conducive to eerie phenomena, with steep narrow stairs into a basement area that is partitioned into multiple rooms. While the stage area upstairs is airy and cheerful the theatre’s basement is dark and shadowy. When I volunteered there in the late 1990s I didn’t like being downstairs by myself–and I like to be scared! I can’t say I ever saw a ghost or apparition (although some actors have) but I did feel uncomfortable at times, like someone was watching me.

Surprisingly, most reports of the paranormal inside the Playhouse happen upstairs. Actors, actresses, directors and staff have seen ghostly apparitions, experienced unexplained technical difficulties and have crossed paths with flying toilet paper and falling books around the stage area. I’ve heard some first-hand accounts and read about others in newspaper archives; I’ve found some pretty convincing.

What other buildings are up for the FLASH? Well, many would vote for the Hotel Monte Vista and that’s understandable. There’s also Crystal Magic and the Flagstaff Train Depot, both with some serious hauntings reported. In all honesty, the place I think is most haunted is one I can’t reveal yet. Someday, I hope. All the other buildings are stops on various Freaky Foot Tours so if you want to know more, make a reservation!

Boo.
