Virginia City

A Victorian-era mining town that is now a Historical Landmark.  Samuel Clemens, a/k/a Mark Twain, used to work here as a reporter for the local newspaper when it was the "Richest Place on Earth".  Some say the gold and silver mines from the Comstock Lode financed the Civil War.  Old West saloons, shops, museums, and restaurants housed in 19th century buildings make it a great place to stroll the board sidewalks.
