The Creepy Small Town In Nevada With Insane Paranormal Activity

Virginia City is the county seat of Storey County, Nevada. Located just 36 miles south of Reno, Virginia City sprang to prominence in 1859 with the discovery of the famed Comstock Lode. During its heyday, 25,000 people lived in the tiny town. After 1878, the town declined, as did the population. Today, Virginia City—just shy of one square mile in area—is home to approximately 855 residents. It is a town steeped in Nevada mining history and is said to be the most haunted in the entire state. Here are several of the town’s areas of insane paranormal activity.
