Located in the city of Fallon on the western part of the state, the area is belived to be haunted by a former Gunner’s Mate. There have been several reports from base personnel who have reportedly seen the ghost whistling tunes from the 1945 American musical comedy film “Anchors Aweigh.” The ghost must have been a big fan of the movie.

Bliss Mansion in Carson City

Bliss Mansion is perhaps the largest and quite beautiful historical home in Carson City, located a stone’s throw across the Governor’s Mansion. It has been built in 1879 on top of a graveyard and is quite well known to be haunted by the ghosts of those who have been buried beneath it.

Davis is said to have died in the area during a robbery. People claim to still hear his screams as he looks for his lost gold treasure.

The Dake House in Genoa 

Located on the Nevada Highway 206 at the southern edge of Genoa is The Dake House. Built in 1872, the house was originally owned by Genoa’s local undertaker, C.W. Dake. People have claimed seeing a ghost of a woman in the house who has her own special brand of perfume. Also, objects have been reported to disappear and then reappear in different locations.

The Gold Hill Hotel in Virginia City

Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino 

Perhaps the most wonderful ghost haunting story is that in Westgate Las Vegas. It is said that Elvis Presley’s ghost himself has been seen in different parts of the hotel. During the 1970s, Westgate is where The King performed nightly for his millions of fans. Perhaps Elvis was just reminiscing his performances?
