See the map for the precise location of the Round Room: past the fairgrounds 5 miles to the dump, left on next road (Wolf Mountain) for 1/4 mile, and before the dead end at the top of the mountain, a sharp left on a short dirt driveway. Reported to be an old water tank, local legend has it that Dr. Anton LaVey, founder of the church of Satan, had a commune here in the late 1960s. Rituals, séances and several murders were said to have happened here by people in white robes. Blood has been found, but no bodies; witnesses say cold spots and apparitions have been seen on the site.

    • that a threat Mr.tough guy anonymous?..well none of us claim we do belong there..but we are free to check it out as its not private property and some of us have a curiosity and like 2 check this stuff out and are perfectly free to do so..matter of fact i think i will definitely go check this place out sometime..Mr i cant even leave my real name..

  1. I have been in the house there when it was still up. We use to go smoke here. Spoooooookie stuff. Cold draft for sure. Tried to go back and had kids on bikes tell my friends and I not to go and when we looked back they where gone!!! We left.

  2. I’ve been to this location twice. The first time I visited The Round Room I was a teenager (about tens ago). My friends and I were typical teenagers in this town looking for a cheap thrill. Five of us piled into a car and drive out there around 10pm. We walked around the whole old water tank and it was boarded up. Nailed shut by the county I assume to keep dumb teenagers like us out. My friend went around the tree to go the bathroom. We were discussing how sad it was that it had been vandilized, but still spooky. Then we noticed the once boarded up doorway was wide open! No one tried opening it, or breaking it down. Everyone else was smoking by the car. We freaked out and told the rest of the group. Everyone piled into the car and drove off! I went back the next morning to take a look in the daytime. The door was still wide open and I went inside and looked around. To open that doorway would have taken great force and made a lot of noise doing so. Sounds like a silly Halloween movie I know but I know it freaked me out enough to where I refuse to go back.

  3. Is this the place they used to call Satan’s House? Went there with some friends in the 90’s. Saw some strange aura’s around people there.

  4. As of April 2021 this property has been sold to new owners who wish to keep the property private. Fences & signs warn everyone to keep out and the Nevada Co Sheriff has permission to arrest any trespassers.

  5. I own this property. Most of this info is fake. Do not come here. Threatening visitors are making the neighborhood hyper aggressive to nice people. The road is a private non county road. Non residents are never welcome. The RR owners don’t make that decision. Look for the Round Room’s fb page for more info.
