The Dark Stage

Milky Way over the ruins of the historic 1861 Glendale Stagecoach Station in Penrose , Colorado. It is said to be haunted by Katherine Cooper. Katherine was singing in 1877 when gold prospector Julian LaSalle first met her, and they fell in love. But Julian had business to attend to, and left on the stagecoach with Katherine’s words calling out that she would wait for him. They corresponded through the winter and made plans for their wedding, but Julian never showed up on the appointed day. He had been robbed and killed by highwaymen along the way. Katherine wouldn’t touch food or drink after this, and so died a self-imposed death. But her ghost has been seen at the station, a sad gray apparition in a wedding dress, still awaiting her beloved Julian.
