Wyoming’s Most Romantic Ghost Story
Most ghost stories are scary. This tale is straight out of a Hollywood movie.
In the late 1980s, the Fort Bridger Cemetery in southwestern Wyoming was allegedly haunted by the spirit of a restless old man who was waiting for his wife to join him on the other side.
According to HauntedPlaces.org, the ghost of an elderly man in a cowboy hat began to appear in 1987. One of the groundskeepers recognized the ghost as a man who had lived in Fort Bridger for years and recently passed away.
The following year, the old man's widow died and his ghost disappeared. To this day, locals believe that his lonely spirit was finally at rest after reuniting with the love of his life, in the afterlife.
