When the railroad arrived in Albuquerque in 1880, a whole new town of stores and saloons sprouted along the tracks in tents and shacks. But just like the original settlement, which came to be known as Old Town, the additional districts produced their fair share of macabre tales and ghostly lore. At the KiMo Theater, the crew still leaves out donuts for the tragic young victim of a 1951 water heater explosion. A mysterious woman in a black dress visits the bar at the Old Albuquerque Press Club with an apparent hankering for gin. From inexplicable occurrences at the Old Bernalillo County Courthouse to infamous residents of the Fairview Cemetery, Cody Polston gathers enough of Albuquerque’s haunted heritage to entertain the most dismissive skeptic.

Cody Polston is the author of multiple books on history and paranormal topics. He is one of the Southwest Ghost Hunter’s Association founders and has been investigating paranormal claims since 1985. For his entire life, he has been fascinated by the unknown and specifically by paranormal activity such as ghosts and poltergeists. However, he remained skeptical and insisted on the use of science in his investigations. Because of his skepticism, many local ghost hunters gave him the nickname “Hitman” due to his ability to rationally discover natural causes behind many hauntings. Through this research, hands-on investigative work and skepticism, Polston became one of the most infamous ghost hunters of the American Southwest.
