No other place in the Cowboy State can match the haunted history of F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne. Unexplained and mysterious events have been occurring there since Fort D.A. Russell was first established on the site in the 1860s.

The most famous legend of F.E. Warren’s haunted past is the curious case of “Gus Quarters.” In the 1880s, a man named Gus was living in the barracks at Quarters 80.

According to local lore, an officer returned from maneuvers one day and found his wife in bed with Gus. Gus tried to escape from the angry officer by jumping out of a second story window. Sadly, Gus hung himself on a clothesline as he fell.

Following the incident, soldiers in the barracks have heard Gus’ ghost attempting to open cabinets and moving objects around the living quarters, leading some to believe that Gus may still be searching for his pants.
