The Haunted Tunnel In Nevada Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

I’m a bit of a skeptic about most ghost stories, but the footage of this seemingly haunted tunnel sent chills down my spine. I had to walk away from my computer for a while before sitting down to write this article.

The ore removal tunnel called Horton Mine dates back to the 1800s, but the hauntings you’re about to see occurred in 2013 and again in 2014. A spelunker with years of experience exploring mines stumbled across it unexpectedly while checking out the Victorine Mine in Lander County. Horton Mine is located about 900 feet beneath it, at the bottom of a mountain, and was used to remove the mined ore from above.

Some commenters across the internet point out that the YouTube video could easily be faked, while others support the theory that it’s haunted based on the evidence presented. Either way, pretty much everyone agrees that it’s a creepy tunnel that we have very little interest in exploring.
