Cañon City, CO is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, The Abbey Monastery. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Tucked away in Cañon City, this historic building originally served as a monastery when it was built in 1924. By 2005, however, the monastery dissolved and the monks eventually moved away. Today, guests visit this historic landmark to admire its stunning Gothic Revival architecture, yet some experience something else rather unexpected. Holy Cross Abbey is considered to be among the most haunted places in Colorado.
A few monks stuck around, including the glee club's leader, Brother Mark. In the afternoon, he'd sit up in the bell tower playing the organ. Now an automated carillon is set to play hymns around noon. Apparently, it doesn't keep very good time anymore. It appears the mechanism is very unpredictable, emitting a soft chime faintly heard over the wind and highway.
None of the hauntings of this property are predictable, for reasons that aren’t easy to explain. Maybe you will have a chance to go, explore and find a purpose for the haunts!
