CARSON CITY GHOST WALK

Carson City
October 19, 2013

10:00 AM - 2:30 PM


Carson City’s rich and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in our seasonal Ghost Walking Tours led by Madame Curry.   The Carson City Ghost Walk is a delightfully spooky and enjoyable way to experience Carson City’s Victorian Era and diverse past.  Hear about lingering spirits of the past, haunted and paranormal stories. This is a spirit lead, guided walking tour of the downtown district’s historic homes. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the walk begins.
 
Meet lingering spirits of the past, with many haunted and paranormal stories to take in. Some of our spirits even lead the guided walking tours of the downtown district’s historic homes. There are two tour routes this year the “Classic” 90-minute walk and a “Mini” Ghost Walk lasting 50 minutes is made with kids in mind. Costumes are welcome and there will be old fashioned trick or treating on the mini walk a glimpse of the bride ghost and at least 2 inside tours. Our classic route features a tour with Janet Jones through the St. Charles Hotel, 4 historic homes and a tour through the Governor’s Mansion.
