The place is full of ghosts. A bartender was closing up one night, and poured himself a drink. He was distracted for a second, and when he looked back, the glass was empty. A woman was sitting in the bar one day, and a man dressed as a cowboy sat down next to her. She got up to move, and the cowboy disappeared.
Photos have been taken of butcher knives floating in the air and cowboys who weren't there at the time. Two employees were talking about ghosts one night and two mannequins they had in the balcony moved. A female mannequin was pushed off of the balcony and a male cowboy mannequin moved its head to look at the group.
If you're a fan of westerns or western history, Big Nose Kate's is a place where the past literally comes alive.
