The Old Mining Town In Nevada With A Sinister History That Will Terrify You

Many of Nevada’s liveliest towns started off as mining towns in the late 19th century. Although a handful of towns grew into the metropolises that they are today, a majority of mining towns did not have the same happy ending. Many towns, like the one featured here, simply perished. In this case, some of these old mining camps seemed destined for tragedy. This particular town is known today for its deadly history, which earned it the crude nickname “The Widowmaker”. You can explore the remains of this abandoned mining town today and experience its creepiness for yourself.
