Garnet Ghost Town is claimed to be haunted and if you like ghosts, this might be the place for you. Garnet was a mining town that has been abandoned for almost 100 years. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management posted an application for people to live in Garnet Ghost Town free of charge. There’s no running water but you will be provided with a furnished cabin including a propane refrigerator. Most importantly, you’ll get paid to live there along with a food allowance! It almost seems too good to be true because all you have to do is assist with tours, work in the gift shop, and help with the upkeep of the town. After your shift is over and guests have left you can roam the town as you please. Many residents claim to have heard footsteps running through the halls, doors opening and closing, and laughter and music from Kelly’s Saloon. Spooky!
