Its interesting to think that people once lived here and went about their normal every day activities and then one day everyone just left. Hard to imagine indeed.
And with every ghost town of course you have ghosts. There are many tales about the ghosts lurking in Rhyolite Nevada and probably more than a few of them are true. There's the brown man said to be a gold prospector who died in the town after he brought huge nuggets in to town to be tested. The legend says he was poisoned by the barber to get the gold. He is seen as a brown shadow with a big floppy hat wandering around town.
Some people have claimed to see a really ancient looking old man leading a mule loaded down with gold mining equipment. He just appears out of nowhere walking down the street and then he vanishes as quickly as he appeared.
In Austin Nevada there is an old closed down Hotel called the International Hotel. Apparently there is a ghost there named Tommy who it is said was a former owner of the old closed down hotel.
