Thanks to Jeff Knabel for sharing his experience.
This is the story of a song I wrote about an experience I had with the ghost of a woman actress from the 1800’s. I was staying at a friends place in Longmont, Colorado last April 2006. It used to be called ‘The Times Call’ building years ago.
The upstairs where I stayed had been closed off since 1964. There is a calendar hanging on one of the doors in the apartment looking over Main St. The page is still on April 1964. In the late 1800’s they used to print one of the local newspapers, ‘The Times Call’, on the 1st floor. There was a big explosion from a gunpowder barrel, in the basement next door in the 1870’s, and the building and the adjacent buildings had to be rebuilt as a result of the fire that ripped through walls of half a city block. ‘The Dickens Opera House’ at the end of the street was spared. A bystander, who was standing on top of the opera house at the time of the explosion, was blown off to the roof of a building below. He was spared with an injured leg. A business across the street had all its windows blown in from the shock wave. The woman inside was frantic, and ran out of her shop screaming with the blood streaming down from her cuts and bruises.
