Pictures of Virginia City, Nevada

Nevada History in the Comstock National Historic District

By

Virginia City is a place right out of the Old West. Visitors will find intact many of the places that made it one of the richest spots on Earth during its late 1800s heyday. You can stroll the wooden sidewalks, have a drink in a saloon, learn the history in numerous museums, tour a mine, and marvel at how millions in silver and gold were wrested from the bleak environment on the side of Mt. Davidson. Today, tourism is the main industry - you will have fun visiting this throwback to the past.
