The Abandoned Town In Nevada That Most People Stay Far, Far Away From

The little town of Goldfield, Nevada is a mostly abandoned place, but it’s different than most ghost towns. This town has many buildings still standing and looks as though its residents simply walked away and abandoned it without warning. While around 200 people still live here, it’s pretty much vacant and definitely creepy. Some say that its haunted, too.

Most of the buildings in town are still owned by people – some of whom have plans to renovate and start up business again. Goldfield is located about 245 miles southeast of Carson City. Would you move here?
