Caliente Train Depot

Memorial Day Weekend








History
The Caliente Train Depot was built in 1923. Once a busy Union Pacific station, it now houses the Caliente city
offices and a small public library.
In the 1920s, its location, about halfway between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, made it an ideal stopping point when the railroad came through. The first floor housed waiting and railroad offices, upstairs was a 50-room motel. However, the arrival of diesel locos meant this stopover point / maintenance depot was no longer needed. The depot is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. - See more at: http://www.roadtripamerica.com/forum/content.php?1711-Caliente-Railroad-Depot-Caliente-Nevada#sthash.STQF0Jpv.dpuf

However, the arrival of diesel locomotives meant this stopover point &maintenance depot was no longer

activity at the depot. A mischievous spirit, whom some
of the staff call "George", is seen and heard throughout
the depot. Doors lock and unlock by themselves and
lights turn on and off. Another report is of a spirit of a woman which is heard on the second floor. She could possibly be the spirit of a prostitute that was killed in
one of the rooms when it was a motel.

Memorial Day Events

Paranormal Researchers of Nevada had the honor of  joining the City of Caliente in their annual Memorial Day homecoming events which were held throughout the weekend. On Saturday, we were in front of the Caliente Auto Repair shop and on Sunday we were at Rose Park. Both days, we had a small booth set up and greeted
visitors, tried to educate about the process of
investigating, heard many interesting stories of personal experiences and held a raffle in which all the proceeds benefited the Caliente Homecoming Society. We had
some great raffle prizes which saw the winners going
home with PRN t-shirts and ghost hunting books & equipment, as well as the grand prize winners accompanying PRN on both of the Train Depot investigations. Monday morning is the day that touched
PRN member's hearts the most. We joined US Veterans
at the Veterans Cemetery for the Retiring of the Flag,
the Flag burning ceremony.
