    It’s amazing to see such a beautiful church in a remote place. This is the kind of church you would find in a metropolitan city: ornate, intricate wooden carvings throughout, beautiful stained glass windows. There is a free museum down around the back with history and artifacts. If you like churches, check it out!

    The Mackey Mansion was owned by John Mackey, who was a mover and shaker in Virginia City. Tour the rooms, listen to the experiences of the tour guides, and take in the History of the Comstock.

    We were able to get a wonderful map of the area and the gentleman at the desk gave us tips on what was open at that off season time.

    If you visit have some good walking shoes and plan on enough time to walk through the area. It can get quite windy.

    You need an hour or less but this is a fun stop to help understand the area and the role of mining. We found it interesting and you don't need a lot of time for the visit. Worth a gander.

    Tour the Fourth Ward School slowly. Take in all of the rooms, the photographs, and the history of Virginia City. It's a fascinating glimpse of what life was like for the folks who lived and went to school there. A definite don't miss!

    In a small town full of history, this big building stands out and you will definitely notice it. If possible, take a tour.

    They took 4-5 cute photos in less than 20 minutes (start to finish, including the costume change). We chose the poses we wanted to purchase, and then the framed photos were ready for pickup in about 15 minutes.

    This marker pays tribute to the many mines of the Comstock Lode. The unimaginable wealth that poured out of the Comstock financed the Union army in the Civil war, built the opulence of San Francisco, affected world markets, and financed institutions that still affect the way we live today.

    The Comstock sparked numerous innovations in mine engineering as well as timber harvesting and railroad and milling technology. It built Virginia City into the most important city between Denver and SF. The marker features ore stone from every county in Nevada. When you stand on the streets of Virginia City, there are over 600 miles of tunnels and shafts beaneath your feet. They looked for a pay off everywhere but the bonanza finds were over by 1880.

    You are in the midst of real wild west history when you are there.

    We stopped in here the other day for lunch. The place was busy and service a little slow but not bad. Food was really good though. A nice menu to choose from and reasonable prices. I had a chicken club and it was really good. Wife had the BLT and she liked it well.
    A neat bar-saloon-restaurant with charm. Will return the next time we are in town.

    I haven't been here for over 50 years. Had to show my wife what an old western town looks like. Many many souvenir shops to choose from and lots to look at. We both enjoyed this experience, and had to buy some nik naks.

    Free, but they operate on donations. What a cool collection of fire equipment! Amazing to learn how they used to fight fires!
