The story of Gold Hill Hotel.

Gold Hill Hotel can be found on Highway 342 close to the Gold Hill mines about one mile south of Virginia City, Nevada.

The original hotel and saloon was built in 1859 and is considered to be the oldest hotel in the state of Nevada. The beautiful two-story hotel at the time of its creation was known as the Riese House until the property was leased by Horace Vessy in 1862. At this time, Vessey added a 3-story building adjacent to the original hotel.

The hotel throughout the years has had many faces including a hotel, a boarding house, and a private residence. During the 1950’s the name was change to Gold Hill Hotel. The Gold Hill Hotel has not only seen many faces but has had many owners as well.

Today, the western hotel and saloon is still serving lunch and dinner and is one of the most exquisite hotels to enjoy in the area.

Where the ghosts are:

Room 4 has a young woman ghost known as Rosie. When you walk into the room, you will notice a smell of roses such as perfume worn during the western days. She also enjoys turning the lights on and off. She even enjoys moving things around including guest’s personal items.

Room 5 has a ghost only known as William. He is believed to be one of the 47 miners that died in a fire in Yellowjacket Mine. Many people will smell tobacco as they walk into the room. William is also quite the prankster, he loves to lock the door to his room and keep guests out.

The upstairs hall has been known to be home to ghost children running and giggling. Along with the playful antics, there is the smell of chocolate chip cookies.
