Haunted Belmont Barbershop | Boise, Idaho | Historical | Paranormal | Haunting | IdaHaunts | America | BoiCGH

The old Hannifins Cigar Store is now Belmont Barber shop located in downtown Boise.

During the fifties, Idahos most notorious murder, the killing of Cora Dean, took place downtown Boise, Idaho. Read our Smokey Ghosts article below.

Cora Dean often frequented Garden City bars. Tragically one night she encountered Raymond Snowden, who would take her life that very same night. Snowden was Idahos very own Jack the Ripper and the only person ever executed by hanging at the Idaho State Penitentiary. You can read our linked Penitentiary article below.

Raymond stabbed Cora mercilessly to death. Some say he dropped the knife in a nearby street gutter. Others are more inclined to believe he concealed the blade when he hastily ran across the street into Hannifins Cigar Store (now operating as Belmont Barbershop).

Many visitors to the Belmont Barbershop claim to hearing running footsteps towards the bathroom areas which some locals believe to be the ghost of Raymond Snowden as he ran to hide from Police who were searching for the deadly weapon.

Could this spirit be actively haunting the building today?

We have a historical (non paranormal) article for anyone interested linked below.

Have you ever visited Belmont Barbershop in Idaho? Did you encounter anything paranormal?
