From Virginia City and Goldhill to ghost towns like Rhyolite to abandoned mines strewn along the northern part of the state to Las Vegas, ghosthunters and lovers of the paranormal are at no loss to satisfy their supernatural craving. There is one haunted street in Las Vegas that has amassed considerable paranormal legend: the stretch of Sandhill Rd. between Olive Ave. and Charleston Blvd.
Rumor has it that a deceased couple haunts the underground tunnels. Whispers and moans have been heard coming from deep within. As the tunnels are only about three feet high, this makes the idea of an actual moaning person in there quite unlikely and fuels the legend that the tunnels—and the road—are haunted. And then there’s an inexplicable apparition of an old woman who chases motorists on the adjacent dirt road but disappears when cars leave “her” street.
The stretch of Sandhill Road between Olive Ave. and Charleston Blvd. in Las Vegas is, perhaps, the most haunted street in all of Nevada
