Bats in the Belfry Ghost Tours
A chill travels down Virginia City's streets, where it meets a group of unsuspecting men and women on the sidewalk. Maybe it's just the wind. Maybe it's a sudden drop in temperature. Or maybe it's something else—something from another time. After all, the group had followed their tour guide's advice and dressed warm for the Comstock's cool nights. When the guide and group arrive at the Silver Queen Hotel, something else seems a bit off. A large painting of a woman stands before them, her evening gown made of thousands of silver dollars. The group stares into her eyes, and they seem to stare back, as if she knows they're there and that they need more change for the parking meter.
The guides at Bats in the Belfry Ghost Tours specialize in this sort of paranormal activity. Several nights a week, they lead tours up and down Virginia City's streets, stopping to tell spooky stories at old 19th-century buildings, including Mackay Mansion and the Washoe Club Haunted Museum. They also host the occasional special event, such as investigations with ghost hunters.
