More haunted and abandoned places in Nevada

Are there any abandoned places in Nevada?
With Nevada's rich history as a gold rush state, the number of abandoned boom towns is pretty high. But that isn't all that has been left to nature over the centuries. Here are a few abandoned places in Nevada to explore:
Echo Bay Marina: Imagine a whole reservoir going poof! That's essentially what is happening to some parts of Lake Mead. The Echo Bay Marina was located on the Overton Arm of Lake Mead and the water levels dropped so low that it had to be shut down in 2013. Now it is all dried up and has been taken over by nature. The Echo Bay Hotel has also been abandoned and is slated for demolition.
Goldfield, NV: Unlike other abandoned ghost towns that are crumbling into dust, Goldfield is pretty much intact - albeit essentially empty of the majority of it residents. It was established in 1902 during a gold rush and was once a bustling boom town. A good ghost town shouldn't be without its haunted hotel, and the Goldfield Hotel is the perfect example with plenty of tales of spookiness.
Horton Mine, Pershing County, NV: What could be more creepy than an abandoned old mine? The Horton Mine has plenty of footage showing what can only be interpreted as "strange phenomena." It really makes you wonder if this abandoned mine from the 1800s is truly haunted.
Delamar, Nevada: When a town has a nickname like The Widowmaker, it's probably not a good sign. Another gold mining town that was established in 1889, Delamar was once the top gold ore producer in Nevada. But with that must mining going on a severe side effect is excessive silica dust. Legend has it the town was home to over 400 widows because of the number of mining deaths. Delamar is now essentially completely abandoned.
