Santa Fe seems to have more than its share of ghost and with ghosts come ghost stories. We love collecting these stories and occasionally meeting the spirits behind them. As Halloween approaches, here’s a round-up of our Santa Fe Ghost posts.
Santa Fe ghost posts: a round-up
Santa Fe ghosts part one
The first stop in our Santa Fe ghost posts round-up in about the ghosts along Old Santa Fe Trail, one of the oldest byways in the city. It starts at the PERA Building at the intersection of Paseo de Peralta and continues to the Inn and Spa at Loretto home of the supposedly cigar-smoking Sister George. Read Santa Fe Ghosts: Part One
Santa Fe ghosts part two
Santa Fe Ghosts: Part Two will take you to a few of the city’s hotels; La Fonda on the Plaza, The Drury Plaza and La Posada. It seems that ghosts like to check into hotels as much as their human counterparts do. Our favorite ghost on this portion of the tour is Julia Staab the resident ghost at La Posada.
Three women who walk Santa Fe at night
Three female spirits rated their own Santa Fe ghost posts. They are La Llorona, more an archetypal legend than ghost. Read about her here Ghosts of Santa Fe: La Llorona, the Weeping Woman
Sister George, once a teaching sister at the Loretto Academy on Old Santa Fe Trail, seems to have returned after her death. There are many reported sightings, including one I had. Read her ghostly tale Ghosts of Santa Fe, Sister George, the cigar-smoking nun.
The third and perhaps most beloved of the Santa Fe’s female ghosts is Julia Staab. Her former mansion is incorporated into La Posada de Santa Fe Hotel & Spa Resort on East Palace Avenue. She was gentile in life as she is in her ghostly entity. Most people who have had the privilege of meeting her are charmed. Read about her is Ghosts of Santa Fe, Julia Staab, the gentle ghost.
That’s it for our Santa Fe Ghost posts round-up. This is just a drop in the bucket. The City Different has many more ghosts; these are some of the more famous ones. Have you encountered any ghostshere? We’d love to hear about them!
