The famous Suicide Table in Virginia City was sitting in the Delta Saloon Monday morning during an explosion inside the saloon. The tourist attraction only had very minor damage from dust, and was safely moved to the Bonanza Saloon Monday without issue.

"We actually had professional movers come and they carried it right across the street for us," Events Marketing Director for Delta and Bonanza Saloons Jessie Raymundo says.

The Suicide Table first came to Virginia City in the 1860s, and got its name from a series of events in the late 1800s.

"There have been three owners which have had major, significant losses," Raymundo says. "All three owners reported to have committed suicide, hence the suicide table."

The table's original game was called Faro. After two owners died, the table was put away for a while.

"Nobody wanted to deal on it," Raymundo says. "Just because of the losses that incurred."

The Suicide Table was later pulled out of "retirement," but as a blackjack table. Faro had been outlawed because cheating at the game was so easy.

But the third owner of the table had a similar fate in the end.

Now, more than 100 years later and restored to its original game, the table is one of the most poplar attractions in Virginia City. So much so, it's on one of the welcome signs as you drive into town from Geiger Summit.

"[On] days where we have hundreds of people [in Virginia City]," Raymundo says. "You get hundreds of people through the doors who want to see the infamous suicide table."

"I worked at the Delta," Virginia City resident Pam Sullivan says. "And so I know people come from all over the world to see the table itself."

While the story behind the historical table is eerie, Raymundo says it adds to the curiosity.

"Whenever you name something with 'suicide' or have some dark, haunted past, it intrigues people," Raymundo says. "A lot of people say that they feel energy coming off of there. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know."

"I think a lot of people, like myself, think the table is cursed," Sullivan says.

No matter how you feel about the story of the Suicide Table, Raymundo says Virginia City is very fortunate that the table is still intact.

"Because it's such a huge piece of Virginia City/Delta history," Raymundo says. "Just losing it or having it damaged would be a huge loss."

Raymundo says along with questions about the Suicide Table, they've gotten a lot of question about their one hundred thousand dollar world globe from 1880. She says they're trying to work out where and how to move it, but says it should be out of the Delta in a few days. She says it could go in the Bonanza if they find an adequate safe space.
