The Five Most Famous Ghosts At F.E. Warren Air Force Base In Cheyenne
There have been hundreds of reported ghost sightings in Wyoming. But no other place in the Cowboy State can match the haunted history of F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne. Unexplained and mysterious events have been occurring there since the late 1860s when Fort D.A. Russell was established.
For over a century, witnesses have reported the ghosts of cavalrymen, dressed in uniform, who patrol the base at night.
Another infamous legend involves Building 34, which once housed the hospital morgue. Countless ghost sightings have been reported throughout the building over the years.
One of the most gruesome stories involves the family campground area, FamCamp. Some believe the sight is haunted by the ghost of a young woman, who was brutally assaulted and killed in the 1920s.
Others have witnessed the ghost of a nurse in Building 223, which formerly served as the living quarters for women on base. Legend has it, she was one of six nurses killed by a deranged man who escaped from the hospital.
The most famous legend of F.E. Warren’s haunted past is “Gus Quarters.” In the 1880s, a man named Gus was living in the barracks at Quarters 80. According to local lore, an officer returned from maneuvers one day and found his wife in bed with Gus. Gus tried to escape by jumping out of a second story window but accidentally hung himself on a clothesline. Ever since, airmen in the barracks have reported Gus’ ghost attempting to open cabinets and moving objects around, leading some to believe that Gus is still searching for his pants all these years later.
