1. Old Tonopah Cemetery - Tonopah

2. Piper's Opera House - Virginia City
Piper’s Opera House is haunted by numerous ghosts. Over the years, many people have experienced or seen various types of entities such as orbs, cold spots or apparitions. Performers have noticed a male entity standing on a ladder while watching them perform. Several ghosts have also been spotted sitting in the balcony seats.
3. Yellow Jacket Mine - Gold Hill
In 1869, a fire lead to the hauntings at Yellow Jacket Mine. More than 35 miners were killed and not all of the bodies were recovered. According to reports, 11 of the miners stayed behind and now haunt the mine.
4. Washoe County Courthouse - Reno
Family and Civil Court decisions made at Washoe County Courthouse have lead to devastating outcomes for the losing party. While feeling a sense of hopelessness, defeated entities can still be seen moping around the courthouse property. Inside the courtroom, there have been many reports of apparitions. Several people have also experienced cold spots.
5. Mackay Mansion - Virginia City
Mackay Mansion once belonged to John Mackay, one of Virginia City's "silver kings." It's now a museum, and it's haunted. While filming "Dead Man," Johnny Depp stayed at Mackay Mansion. He saw the ghost of a little girl dressed in white. Others have heard this little girl playing upstairs. A colonel has been seen hanging out in the kitchen, and a lady has been spotted running up and down the stairs.
6. Foxridge Park - Henderson
Allegedly, Foxridge Park is haunted by a little boy who was sadly killed by a drunk driver. He enjoys playing on the swing set during the late night hours. According to reports, he prefers swinging alone. If you look him directly in the eyes, he'll turn into a demon and quickly vanish.
7. Silver Terrace Cemetery - Virginia City
At Silver Terrace Cemetery, the gravestones reportedly give off a glowing light during the night. They also move without explanation. Another strange thing that happens at this cemetery is the gates will often open and close on their own.
8. Goldfield Hotel - Goldfield
At the Goldfield Hotel, guests have reported seeing ghosts in their third floor rooms. These ghosts reportedly committed suicide. One of the ghosts is a woman who hanged herself, and another one is a man who jumped to his death while staying at the hotel. There's also a ghost known as "The Stabber" because it randomly attacks hotel guests with a kitchen knife. Yikes!
9. Grimes Point - Fallon
Several glowing figures have been reported at Grimes Point, an archaeological dig site in Fallon. They enjoy wandering around the old mining area.
