This Nevada Saloon Is The Most Haunted Place In The West—Visit Only If You Dare
There is definitely no shortage of haunted places throughout the Silver State. In fact, Nevada is a paradise for paranormal enthusiasts. However, the most haunted place in the state may be too frightening for even the most seasoned ghost hunters. If you’re looking for a good scare, we definitely recommend checking this place out. What was once an old saloon is now a museum and an incredible ghost hunting attraction. Do you think you could handle it?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Located in the heart of historic Virginia City is one of the most haunted places in Nevada—The Washoe Club. The three-story brick structure was once a bustling saloon, but today it is a prime ghost hunting spot that paranormal enthusiasts won't be able to resist.
Back in the day, the Washoe Club was considered a "high class" type of bar that was reserved for Virigina City's richest. As the riches dwindled, the saloon opened its doors to everyone and it wasn't long until the bar became plagued by violence.
If you visit today, you can peruse the odd but incredible little museum that the saloon now contains. Admission to the Haunted Museum is free when you purchase a guided tour and contains weird exhibits such as the very table where Mark Twain and President Grant played poker.
The Washoe Club isn't just known as one of the most haunted places in Nevada, but in the entire West. The television show Ghost Adventures even paid the saloon a visit back in 2004. This place is infamous within the ghost hunting community for good reason.
Visitors of the Washoe Club can partake in a ghost-hunting tour in which you'll even be supplied with a "ghost meter". Even skeptics will be spooked when they see this thing going off!
The building itself is extraordinarily creepy. It's easy to believe that this place is riddled with dozens of lingering spirits. One of the most common apparitions is a woman named Lena who is often seen on the staircase. Lena was a young, blonde woman who was murdered in one of the saloon's third-story rooms.
Another common apparition is a young girl around 13 years old who was thought to be murdered in the basement. Many people recall feeling touched by curious children-like entities. However, there is a countless number of ghostly apparitions that have been experienced on these tours.
Whether or not you're into the haunted aspect of this old saloon, there's no denying the fascinating history that remains here. After your ghost tour, be sure to stop by the century-old bar top for a refreshing beverage and reflect on your paranormal experience!
This place looks beyond freaky! If you love exploring Nevada’s creepy haunts, then you’ll definitely want to take advantage of
