This Haunting Road Trip Through Nevada Ghost Towns Is One You Won’t Soon Forget

Nevada is best known for its mining history. After the discoveries of silver and gold throughout Nevada, towns continued to evolve. Unfortunately, as soon as the mines closed, residents packed their belongings and moved out of town. These former mining towns are considered “ghost towns.” In several ghost towns, only fragments of original buildings remain standing – giving us a glimpse into Nevada’s past. Some of these ghost towns even give off an eerie vibe.
