City is just a short drive from Reno and is well worth the trip if you're
interested in history or just having a good time. The town is well maintained
and has been restored to look pretty much like it did during the gold
and silver rush days. If you're visiting and don't have access to a car,
several tour companies offer day trips to Virginia City at a reasonable
cost. With the completion of the Virginia Truckee Railroad, you can now
travel from Carson City to Virginia City by rail.

Experience the Victorian charm and Wild West Frontier as it comes

and clicking on them will take you to a larger photo and some information

story I found in a rather interesting booklet and has been corrected
and verified by a local historian. You can view the pictures randomly,
