Rumored to be haunted by several ghosts, including a little girl dressed in white who was spotted by Johnny Depp during his stay in an upstairs bedroom, the Mackay Mansion was built in 1859 by silver-mining magnate John Mackay. The lavish home still contains original decor, including custom-built furniture, a gold-plated chandelier, and a three-story staircase carved from a single piece of wood.
