Ghost Town in Nevada

What are some creepy Nevada ghost towns?  

Nevada is so much more than just the Vegas strip! It’s a state full of interesting places, ghost towns, scenic byways, and just a little spookiness. Some of our favorite creepy ghost towns in Nevada include Nelson, which is conveniently located less than an hour from Las Vegas. It was home to Civil War deserters and other unique characters and, unfortunately, it did not remain peaceful there for long. Rhyolite is another eerie place that one was booming – although that time was very short-lived. The town lasted less than five years thanks to the gold and silver drying up incredibly quickly; the supply within the nearby mountains was miscalculated. There’s also Metropolis (we love the irony of the name), Belmont, and Goodsprings. Nevada is a great place for urban explorers and ghost town geeks alike.  

Where are some creepy places in Nevada? 

Nevada is a state with, perhaps, more ghosts than living residents – or so they say. Some of our favorite creepy places in Nevada include the Mizpah Hotel, in Tonopah, which is said to be haunted by the “Lady in Red”, the wayward spirit of a deceased prostitute from long ago. She’s not the only one who is thought to haunt the hotel; she’s only the most famous. In Virginia City, there’s the old Mackay Mansion, which is thought to be haunted by several of its former residents (and honestly, looking at that house, we don’t think we’d want to leave either). There’s a haunted wax museum in Vegas, and there are plenty of creepy haunted hotels, motels, and beds and breakfasts all over the state.
