Carson City's rich and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in the 19th annual Classic Ghost Walk. The Carson City Ghost Walk is a delightfully spooky and enjoyable way to experience Carson City's Victorian Era and diverse past. 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 with kids in mind, the "Mini" Ghost Walk (lasting 50 minutes.)
The Classic and Mini tours depart every quarter-hour on October 19, 2013, from behind the Firkin & Fox Pub on 3rd and Curry Streets. Costumes are welcome. Tours are rain or shine.

A 90-minute guided walking tour. The first tour departs 10:00am, with the last one departing at 2:30pm. Our classic route features a tour with Janet Jones through the St. Charles Hotel, four historic homes, and a tour through the Governor's Mansion.
Mini Tour || Get Tickets!
A 50-minute guided tour. The first of four departures leaves at 10:15am, the last leaving at 11:45am. There will be old fashioned trick-or-treating on the Mini Walk, a glimpse of the bride ghost, and at least two inside tours.
Some of the outside stops along the tour include:
The Bliss Mansion - Built by Duane Bliss is a three story, 8,500 sq ft. mansion that was completed in 1879, built by millionaire Duane L. Bliss, to become his dream home. This 15 room Victorian was built in the Italianate style, and was the biggest and most elaborate home in Nevada at the time.
The Brewery Arts Center - Built in 1874 by the Carson Brewing Company, which produced Tahoe Beer. The building has been transformed into an arts center.
Ferris Mansion - Home of George Ferris, Jr., inventor of the Ferris Wheel for the Chicago World Columbian Exposition in 1893.
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.
