Carson City Mint – Nevada State Museum is a site believed to be haunted by spirits from its past. The mint opened in 1869, and in 1872, a worker named Osborne Parker was crushed to death in the basement when equipment fell on him. And Abraham Curry, a mint superintendent who died in 1873, also is believed to linger here in spirit. Witnesses report footsteps, an elevator that works by itself, and a friendly presence.
