Tour Denver With Phil Goodstein

Phil Goodstein has been giving tours of the streets of Denver since 1986. Some of his most popular have been “The Seemy Side of Denver” and one of the first local haunted house tours with “Ghost Walk on Capitol Hill”. He has written 25 books on the history of Denver dealing with a wide variety of topics with Denver’s seedy past. These books have been used as research for the majority of historical and paranormal tours given throughout the years in Denver. This is a chance to spend time with one of Denver’s most eccentric historians. If you are looking for in depth history, paranormal stories, and local knowledge, Phil Goodstein is the expert.

One of the areas most asked about is Cheeseman Park. This open space in the center of the city’s storied Capitol Hill neighborhood was once the community’s pioneer cemetery. There are still upwards of 2,000 bodies buried there. How they got there and why they remain is but the beginning of the stroll, one which points out visible sunken graves in the park. The walk then focuses on how the classic Hollywood horror flick, “The Changeling” is based on events at Cheesman Park. In 2018, a release of the film on Blu-Ray includes a trailer with Goodstein detailing the specific Mile High developments. Additionally, the two-hour tour visits nearby historic mansions, complete with tales about their colorful owners.
