Native author travels to Nevada’s ghost cities and publishes book about them

RENO, Nevada (KOLO) – The state of Nevada is full of ghost towns from top to bottom.

“There are more ghost towns in Nevada than actual cities in Nevada,” said Tracie Barnthouse of Travel Nevada.

Thanks to a number of expeditions across Nevada, Eric Cachinero, Associate Editor of Nevada Magazine, has now seen almost all of them.

“One trip became two trips. Two became six, six became twelve, and after that there was probably more, ”he said.

Needless to say, the ghost towns are not all created equal. Some are from the 19th century, others only from the 1940s. And not all ghost towns are without people. Those who have them are called living ghost towns.

“Tybo is one,” said Cachinero when asked about living ghost towns. “Manhattan is different. There you will still find an old bank vault that you can check out. “

And when asked which city he noticed the most, he picked one in Lincoln County.

“If I had to choose one, I would choose Delamar,” he said. “Although it’s more of a ghost town than a ghost town.”
