We can all name a handful of places that we think are haunted in the towns we know best, but what town in Colorado is the MOST haunted? According to the website Only in Your State, Colorado’s is a little town called Florence.

Florence is a little northwest of Pueblo near Canon City, and the town that claims to be the antique capital of Colorado also has some antique-like residents!

According to Only In Your State, many of Florence’s original buildings remain and many ghost hunters have vouched that they are haunted. The town is also home to ADX Florence maximum security prison, which has housed the likes of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (the Boston Marathon bomber), Ted “The Unabomber” Kaczynski, and countless domestic and foreign terrorists, just adding to the spookiness.

If you’re into this sort of stuff, it’s about a two hour drive from most of Denver to Florence.
