- Led by local historian Neil Reynolds, who dresses in a long black cape and a top hat so as to resemble something out of an Edgar Allen Poe short story, this tour creeps through Leadville's famed Evergreen Cemetery. The tour pauses before gravestones as Reynolds dispenses tales about some of those who are buried, including John W. Booth, the alleged cousin of Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Keep a keen eye out for the strange blue lights that haunt the cemetery, or for the bronze elk statue whose head has been reported to turn. Admission is USD10.
