LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
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.
