Silver Queen

We went to the Silver Queen on a weekday so that may be the reason fun-ness was a little slow. Wasn't bothered when I walked in, looked around and took photos. Seemed to be a little disorganized this day.

[Natali M, 04/22/2019]

Natali's photo of the dry marker brag board at the Silver Queen notes their importance in the histories of Mark Twain, the Captain and Tennille, Zak Bagin's TV Ghost Adventures, and also a claim of having the "tallest back bar in the world - 1876."

Silver Queen Hotel - Ghost

I shot a photo of a ghost image in an upper window of the Silver Queen Hotel. I didn't notice it until I was forwarding the pic from my phone to email.
