19th St. Castle 1318 19th St
By Jill Pope
Here's an odd little story that was relayed to us. The "19th Street Castle" is the elaborate tan stuccoed home located across the street from Holliday Park. This home was built in 1914 for Thomas Heaney, a prominent businessman in Cheyenne. Before the home was completed Reverend Wesley Dumm purchased it and had the construction completed. He and his family resided here from 1915-1929. The Dr. Devine family moved into this home until 1944. Currently it is divided into apartments. A resident in the 1990s reported that the ghost here is known for violently shaking the bedposts of the four-poster bed and drinking all the beer out of the refrigerator! He said the spirit looks like a kindly, older gentleman and he believes it to be Reverend Dumm, the first resident of the home.
