Carson Citys rich and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in our seasonal evening walking tours, led by Madame Curry a spirited and historically fictional character named after the widow of Carson Citys founder, Abe Curry.
This is the 26th season of the Carson City Ghost Walk. The evenings are a delightfully spooky and enjoyable way to experience Carson Citys Victorian Era and diverse history. Hear about lingering spirits of the long ago centuries, haunted and paranormal stories and gossip from the past. This is a spirit lead, guided walking tour of the downtown districts west side historic homes and businesses.

The west side of Carson City was settled in the late 1850s at the beginning of the largest silver rush in history. It was a time of great prosperity, discovery, and excitement as Nevada became the battle born state in 1864.
Some of the outside stops along the tour include:
The Bliss Mansion Built by Duane Bliss is a three story, 8,500 sq ft. a mansion that was completed in 1879, built by millionaire Duane L. Bliss, to become his dream home.
Ferris Mansion - Home of George Ferris, Jr., inventor of the Ferris Wheel for the Chicago World Columbian Exposition in 1893.
The Governors Mansion - is situated on the beautiful Mountain Street, or as Madame Curry calls it: Celebrity Row. In 1907, the Mansion Bill and neighbor Mrs. T.B. Rickey made this residence possible 40 years after Nevada became a state. There are many spirits linked to this mansion and area.
Rinckel Mansion - Built by the fortune of Mathias Rinckel, a forward-looking meat magnate who struck it rich supplying Gold Rushers and Lake Tahoe lumbermen.
