  • Be sure to tour this historic mansion owned by the Bonanza King, John Mackay. It is very interesting and the tour guides are delightful and knowledgeable.

  • We did the paranormal investigation and during the day did the history tour. If I could give a higher rating I would. Both were outstanding! I had Dawn, I think that was her name, she did both tours for me. I'm going to break both down. The history museum tour is great for the family or just on your own. Tons of facts and beautiful antiques. It was very engaging and entertaining. Very informative. The paranormal investigation that I did, she gave us tools to use that we handled directly so you could tell and see what they did and didn't do. We were given history information and shown photos and videos that were taken there. There definitely was a decent amount of activity I got to experience and some that others experienced. It was NOT threatening in anyway it was very playful and the tour guide made me feel so at home and comfortable.
  • This was an amazing tour of this famous Mansion that Ghost Adventures has even done an episode on. The host of the tour was well knowledgeable & made you feel immersed in the story of the house. After a brief tour with her, you are free to roam around the mansion (with few restrictions) to see the rooms on your own. It's certain a fun thing to do, & that entire little town is full of so much history & stuff to explore. Will certainly go back for the paranormal tour, next time I'm back in Nevada.
