Albuquerque Ghosts: Traditions, Legend, Lore

Inara Cedrins

Available Now


Many people have passed through the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. Some have stayed to live in the historic city, others come from ancient pueblos, mesas, and settlements outside its borders—and, for some, passions have caused them to remain, even after death. Read about the first witches and medicinemen who held supernatural powers. Learn about cultural perspectives of death and the rituals that accompany those beliefs. Visit the Mine Shaft Tavern where glasses fly off the bar, and the Santa Barbara Cemetery where a shadowy apparition holds a tattered rope attached to a noose about its neck, and feel the gaze of the lady in white at the Luna Mansion who strolls through the rooms and gazes out at visitors on the lawn. Read about LaLlorona, La Virgen de Guadalupe, the Peyote Ceremony, the Day of the Dead, and other haunting stories. Albuquerque is steeped in historic ritual; and ghostly inhabitants still flourish there.
