Journey through this Nevada town filled with nineteenth-century history-and hauntings. Includes photos! The Kit Carson Trail in Carson City, Nevada, is haunted by history: The footsteps of Abe Curry, the first superintendent of the Nevada City Mint, still echo in the halls of the building. Mark Twain's niece, Jennie Clemens, died of a fever when she was nine; her spirit peeks from the upstairs window of the family home and is said to visit the Lone Mountain Cemetery. In the 1800s, V&T Railroad baron Duane Bliss built his home on a burial ground. Today, the house occasionally chimes with laughter and music as spirits gather in the parlor in evening finery . . . Take a walk through Carson City's haunted history with author Janet Jones and meet the spirits that linger in the city's historic district. "Explores 19 legends of haunting in Nevada's capital city: Historic mansions; hotels; the Stewart Indian school; the Virginia and Truckee Railroad and more." -Reno Gazette-Journal
