360° VR Panoramas of Northern and Central Nevada
Virginia City
North of Carson City, Nevada

Virginia City was the richest of the far west mining towns, a silver lode of immense size that was profitably mined from 1859 to 1898. During that time a substantial brick and stone town of 30,000 people was built directly over the mines. Mark Twain did his first writing here, for the local newspaper. Despite several large fires the town survives largely intact today, a fascinating relic of the nineteenth century.
