Are there any left around here that I could share that experiance with my own children? We still have an old player piano that my dad found back in the 1960's in an old ghost town, it has now been restored and is in wonderful working condition, but I do not remember where he got it from other than it was a ghost town we seemed to have driven for hours to get to. Any help?

: Get a copy of Stan Paher's book NEVADA GHOST TOWNS & MINING CAMPS. Stan is a fellow Reno-ite and has a business called Nevada Publications. Also check out Shawn Hall's website at http://members.xoom.com/_XOOM/ghosttowner/index.html. He's written a number of Nevada ghost town publications plus carrys a large supply of other ghost town related topics.

: There's a huge number of ghost towns and historic sites within 1-4 hours of Reno and a bit of exploring the books as well as the ghost towns should provide hours of fun and excitement for you and your children.
