The unusual activity in the Molly Brown House has been reported by several employees. Hauntings include dark shadows moving about rooms when there is no light to produce them, and piano keys moving on their own, but making no sound. In this building, many people report the pungent smell of fresh cigar smoke; Mr. Brown was known to be an avid smoker of cigars.

The way the home has been restored is as close as it can be to the way Molly Brown had it when she lived in Denver. The aura of the home feels rich of the past. In the way that she and her husband takes care of the home, almost makes you think that they are welcoming you rather than trying to scare you away.

Very inquisitive, the woman is said to have been seen reading over the shoulders of employees. Politics are scary enough, nuff said.
