Synopsis >

In this episode, TAPS heads to Nevada to search for spirits of the Old West. First stop is the old mining town of Goldfield, where Jason, Grant and the rest of the team investigate one of the most requested locations in Ghost Hunters history the Goldfield Hotel. This 100-year-old hotel was built over a dry mine shaft and at the time was considered the most luxurious establishment between Chicago and San Francisco. However, by the 1930s the hotel was nothing more than a boarding house, and by 1945, the Goldfield closed forever but many believe that it is far from empty. Various apparitions have been spotted around the hotel, including that of a young woman with long, blonde flowing hair in a white gown and a tall, thin man with a flat-topped cowboy hat. Then the team travels north to Virginia City, once a thriving metropolis with a population of over 30,000. Now, the city is a ghost of its former self. The team investigates claims at two of the towns remaining relics, the Old Washoe Club (a saloon that originally opened in 1860) and St. Marys Art Center (formerly St. Marys hospital). Both sites are home to many paranormal claims no doubt fueled by their lurid histories.
