The Goodsprings Cemetery consists of 1.33 acres (0.54 ha) and is an old, continuing cemetery located southwest of Las Vegas, Nevada seven miles (11 km) from Jean and just before entering the town of Goodsprings.[1]

The cemetery was in use long before A.J. Robbins donated the property to the town in 1913 with the earliest marked burial dating to December 27, 1890 for that of Anna Nimmer.[2]

The cemetery has been investigated by the Las Vegas Society of Supernatural Investigations for signs of those who have left this mortal realm.Bigfoot's Pad Paranormal Team has investigated this location and others for signs of the paranormal since 2008.[3]

Interments[edit]
