Social Distance at Vulture City

March 26, 2020

An hour west of where we live there's a ghost town called Vulture City. The last time I was there it was 2019 and my friend and I participated in a nighttime ghost tour. It was honestly creepy and there were a few doors that opened by themselves, disembodied voices and sounds that resembled miners pushing ore carts.   The property has been taken over by caretakers who are working hard to restore the buildings and have turned it into an event venue. 

I called and they were open. It turned out to be the best place to explore and walk around without bumping into others. Well, we didn't bump into anyone living for that matter, ghosts are another question. The kids were surprised at the way people lived in the late 1800s/early 1900s and had fun running around. In the daylight the property is interesting and not very creepy. 

When it was time to leave, I tired to start the car and the battery was dead. I ran back to the gift shop and a nice gentleman who works on the property brought his truck over with a jump pack. Luckily the car started up and we were able to head home. He let me know it is a common to have cars not start after visiting the property. I was hoping I had a supernatural encounter, but one week later in the grocery store parking lot, the battery died again, so I fear it was not a ghost, but typical wear and tear of a car battery. 

If you want a taste of the wild west, give Vulture City a visit!
