Hidden underneath the massive casino at the River Inn, is a maze of rooms of the same size. This place is so shroud in mystery that most people who have been down here in the last 40 plus years, refuse to ever set foot down there again. In our last episode at the River Inn, once we made it to the final hallway on the main floor we arrived at a staircase leading down into the darkness, after a shadow figure peered at us from around the corner we decided that we had enough for one night. However we asked you guys for 8K likes in order for us to try our luck in the scariest part of this massive building. And in less than 24 hours you guys hit that goal! So here we are, back for one final time to try and get some answers and face our fears. This is the place no one will enter alone. This is Hells Basement.
Reno River Inn
The River Inn is a location that has been steeped in history for well over 100 years. Starting its journey as a family home that would explode into a getaway for Renos elite after the discovery of a hot spring beneath the property that fed the Truckee river. In the early 1900’s the site would be called Lawton’s Hot Springs and would expand into a full resort and spa, used by those looking to divorce their partners during a time when divorce was uncommon and Reno became the divorce capital of the US. It would remain this way for the next few decades until the boom in gambling hit the state of Nevada. Throughout the 1950’s well into the 1970’s this would spark an era of darkness, secrecy, and stories left untold to this day. From what we could gather, this time would lead to business dealings with the mob and Renos infamous Joe Conforte… money would change hands and problems or even people who endangered the newer hotel and casino would seemed to just disappear. We have heard tales of the mob using this out of the way and relatively hidden place to dispose of bodies, two ladies of the night that were murdered in the old private spa building ( which is now torn down ) even the more natural deaths of a grounds keeper and another unnamed man. Everything that went on here was kept hidden so well that no information of this time period at the River Inn even exists. After its decline during the 1980’s someone would run off with a huge sum of money and someone would end up in prison and their partners swore to keep the property safe until their return. Something the never happened. This place would remain boarded up and heavily guarded for over 40 years. Until recently it was given a new lease on life and the new owner Lawrence seeks to rebuild this place and begin a new story for his family and the community. We reached out to them and were invited out to see if we could learn a little bit more from those who never left this place. After a decade of trying we are finally here and we are finally going inside for what may be one of our most terrifying, yet greatest nights and evidence ever caught on camera. This is the River Inn, and this is what we found hidden inside.
