Number 8: Molkerei "Formerly a tuberculosis clinic in the heart of Denver back in the late 1800s. It was closed down as a clinic and remained open as an asylum between 1902 and 1906. It was believed the unethical practices of early psychology led to the untimely death of the residents. Many sightings have been reported of things such as lights within the house flickering on and off repeatedly visions of people walking around inside a seemingly abandoned house and one instance of a male leaving the house wearing a white surgeon's mask and walking around the surrounding park. It is also believed that there was formerly a network of tunnels underground that are leading to the nearby castle of Baron Von Richtofen himself. The house has been recently remodeled but strange instances still occur within the surrounding park and neighborhood." Number 7: George Washington High School "The ghost of an old heavy bald man is seen on the football field. He will show up in the middle of the day and then just disappear into thin air. Some say he is the ghost of an old football coach." Continue to keep counting down the top ten "haunted" Denver sites to visit on Friday the 13th.
