The Clown Motel of Tonopah, Nevada is for sale

Now is your chance to make your dreams come true: The famous Clown Motel of Tonopah, Nevada is for sale. And it comes complete with over 600 clown toys, figurines, life-size statues, paintings, and portraits.

“This is a historic mining town,” owner Bob Perchetti told Las Vegas Now. “What’s a Clown Motel doing in a historic mining town? That’s kind of strange.”

And what’s stranger is that all of those miners, including those killed in the disastrous Belmont Mine Fire in 1911, are buried in the Old Tonopah Cemetery right next door.

Perchetti opened the motel 22 years ago. His late business partner had a house full of clowns that he decided to move in, and thus a nightmare was born. But now Perchetti is ready to kick back, do some fishing, and go camping with his grandchildren while some lucky new owner takes over the motel’s legacy.

“Oh, I’m going to miss the clowns,” he said. “I’m going to come back. I’m going to come back and visit my clowns.”

He is hoping to get around $900,000 for the motel.

    I believe that that is the motel. That Zach Bagans got totally creeped out in due to his fear of clowns clowns and other dolls. Maybe someone should let him know the place is for sale. Maybe he like to buy it.
