The town of Goldfield, Nevada sprang up rather quickly upon the discovery of gold there in 1902. It soon became the largest town in Nevada; a thriving mecca for adventurous miners, rowdy cowboys and old west entrepreneurs alike. During Goldfield's boomtown heyday, several grand buildings were erected, including the infamously haunted Goldfield Hotel and the perhaps ...

Mizpah Hotel, Tonopah, NV – Old Haunt, New Life.

Two years ago, while on a road trip through the Nevada desert, we stopped in at the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah, Nevada and peeked inside through the beveled glass of a side door. Built during the early 20th Century boom years of Nevada's mining industry, back when Tonopah was known as "The Queen of the ...

Golden Ghost: The Goldfield Hotel

There is a hotel in the Nevada desert that has stood guest-less for over 60 years, looming over the once prosperous and bustling boom-town of Goldfield. Aptly named the Goldfield Hotel, this stone and brick behemoth of the desert happens to be very haunted.

Why Do I Do This? (or, The Essence of Ghost Hunting.)

Recently, I was asked the question,  “What is your goal with all of this?” The person asking me the question was referring to my hobby of “ghost hunting” - or, in other words, why the heck would I spend my spare time in dark, abandoned places asking questions into thin air? “Well,” I said, “it started ...

Ghost Hunting is an Oxymoron (or, The Skeptical Ghost Hunter)

"Ghost hunting” is an oxymoron, is it not? Just what is a ghost, anyway? A spirit? A shadow? A memory? A smell? A sound? A laugh? An old photograph? Displaced energy? A lost soul? A figment of our imagination? A longing, a burning desire...? We "hunt ghosts" - and yet, what are we hunting? And ...

The Ghost Hunter’s Dilemma

Anyone who considers herself a paranormal investigator--that is, anyone committed enough to spend the entire night in cold, dark and often disturbing buildings/ships/homes/hospitals, knows one fact above all else: whatever we find, or whatever finds us, is frustratingly vague.
