The Vance Brand Civic Auditorium is located at Skyline High School in Longmont, Colorado, which is north of Denver.
The Vance Brand Civic Auditorium is a large facility that can seat up to 1,377 people. It is used for performances including plays and concerts. The Boulder County Paranormal Research Society did an investigation of the auditorium and noted some interesting historical events that did take place there. Apparently, a balcony collapsed during the construction of the facility, killing one construction worker.
It is interesting to note that on a website known as Shadowlands, there is a report that a man was killed during construction of the balcony, but that the man was a janitor. Janitorial Lore is rampant in schools across the nation, but this story is interesting because it contains a seed of truth.
Paranormal Activities Reported:
Disembodied footsteps have been reported in the facility late at night when there is no one else there. Also, loud banging sounds have been reported that have no obvious origin. Cold spots and electrical phenomena have also been noted. Objects are said to move without explanation. The Boulder County Paranormal Research Society did not capture any data to support the personal experiences that have been reported at the Vance Brand Civic Auditorium.
