I went to Goldfield last year with some of my brothers for the installation of officers at the local lodge. Here's a picture of the Goldfield Hotel that I took. I'd hate to work late at that antique shop!



My mom and sister went on that tour. The said that it wasn't that great. There are a couple of interesting that you can buy afterwards.

There's a Big Mansion up next to Sunrise Mountain (Frenchman - whatever) thats boarded up...Not sure about that place but I heard it is haunted, as is the entire Frenchman base going out to Henderson, as lots of homeless people/hikers/other have died there...

If I were a ghost, I wouldn't stay where I died. That would be so boring if no one else was there besides me. No, I would go out and bug people. Poke them, tickle them, sneak up in front of them and go BOO!

I imagine the house you are talking about is Don Reynold's old mansion. He built it long before there was anything else up there but a place to park n spark with your girlfriend, and illegally dump garbage. Reynolds was sole owner of Donrey Media Group, and one of the richest men in America. He had over 50 newspapers all over the country, several TV and radio stations, billboard advertising companies, and an insurance company, among other things. In Las Vegas, he owned the Review Journal which was sold to Stevens Media after Reynolds died, and Ch-3 (then KORK-TV), plus he owned the former KORK radio, as well as Donrey Outdoor, the billboard company. He had a home in every city where he owned a business, and usually kept a car parked there for his own use whenever he was in town, which might be once a year. If he is haunting it, it would only be because he didn't believe you can't take it with you, and he wants it back.

There are all kinds of institutions around Las Vegas, as well as around the country, paid for with Don Reynolds' money, including Reynolds Schools of Journalism at UNLV, UNR, and Mizzou. The new Smith Center being built downtown is a Reynolds legacy, as is the museum at Mount Vernon. George Washington's Mount Vernon - Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center

Dang, thought this was a thread about commercial haunted houses. I was curious what/where the best one is within say a 100-mile area. Is there one in particular that puts on a decent show each year?

Can remember when I was growing, stood in line for 2+hrs to go through a 15-30 min tour. Was a pretty decent show for $15, maybe 30-40 rooms with hydraulics neat exhibits/skits and whatnot.. but not sure if it was worth freezing my butt for 2 hrs.

There is a local ghost hunting group on meetup.com. They should be getting something together for halloween time.

Mr. Reynolds called it a wrap in 1993.
