Don’t Drive On This Haunted Street In Nevada Or You May Regret It
Nevada is full of haunted locales. From Virginia City and Goldhill to ghost towns like Rhyolite to abandoned mines strewn along the northern part of the state to Las Vegas, ghosthunters and lovers of the paranormal are at no loss to satisfy their supernatural craving. There is one haunted street in Las Vegas that has amassed considerable paranormal legend: the stretch of Sandhill Rd. between Olive Ave. and Charleston Blvd.
Rumor has it that a deceased couple haunts the underground tunnels. Whispers and moans have been heard coming from deep within. As the tunnels are only about three feet high, this makes the idea of an actual moaning person in there quite unlikely and fuels the legend that the tunnels—and the road—are haunted. And then there’s an inexplicable apparition of an old woman who chases motorists on the adjacent dirt road but disappears when cars leave “her” street.

I strongly believe in ghosts as I’ve had several paranormal experiences throughout my life. I enjoy the thought of coming face-to-face with a paranormal entity even though I end up giving myself nightmares. While I was somewhat disappointed in my recent jaunt to Sandhill Rd., I am also rather relieved. Next time I will take a friend. Have any of you had any experiences on this haunted street?
