CARSON CITY’S 27TH ANNUAL GHOST WALK – TWO HOUR TOURS ALL DAY    

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19TH, 2019

IN THE SHADOWS

A Haunting & Entertaining Tour of Carson City & The Afterlife

Carson City’s spooky and intriguing history is explored and theatrically re-lived in our 27TH annual all day Carson City Ghost Walk.  Guided Tours depart from the McFadden Plaza on Curry Street starting at 10:00 AM.  The last tour leaves at  2:30 PM. Each tour lasts approximately two hours long.  The Carson City Ghost Walk is a delightfully entertaining and enjoyable way to experience Carson City’s Victorian Era and diverse history.  Hear about lingering spirits of the past centuries, haunted and paranormal stories and meet characters and tour historic homes and businesses along the tour.  

This year we will have one tour path. In The Shadows, our 120-minute Tour features home tours and characters from Carson City’s past.  The Widow Curry explores communicating with her husband, Abraham Curry, the founder of Carson City, who passed away October 19, 1873, exactly 146 years ago.  Part haunted history and part theatricality, costumes are welcome on the tour. These are both spirit lead, guided walking tours of the downtown district and west side historic homes and businesses. The tours leave rain or shine.  Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the walk begins. There will be photo opportunities, tables, psychics and Ghost Walk merchandise for sale so you may want to get there early.
