Virginia City is an experience going back 150 years. Let your adventure begin with a step back in time. The 19th century mining boom turned Virginia City into the most important settlement between Denver and San Francisco; and grubby prospectors into instant millionaires. They built mansions, imported furniture and fashions from Europe and the Orient, and helped finance the Civil War… and then went on to build empires around the world. The finest example being San Francisco. Click here for information about Virgina City (http://www.virginiacity.com/).
