The cemetery is quite large with many beautifully carved monuments. My favorite had a deceased dove carved on the top of the headstone, very unique!

It was a sobering experience to see the graves of those who lived and died in the Comstock Lode nearly 200 years ago. To see the aged and the youth alike in their final resting place was a wakeup and a warning of man's mortality.

My hubby and I checked out only the front portion!!! We look at every headstone. This cemetery is the best! We wish we had more time! And hey, if you ask the sheriff, word is you could visit the cemetery at night! Definitely gonna ask on our next visit! What an amazing town!

We visited the Silver Terrace Cemetery last weekend. We enjoyed a day in Virginia City, visiting shops and walking and taking in the sights. A stop at the Washoe Club the local patrons told us of the historical cemetery and recommend. It was a cold and windy day which added to the surreal feeling of taking a step back into... More

Spent at least two hours here. If you love history this is a good place for you. Have been here twice for several hours both times and haven't made it all the way through yet. Will be back.

We always conclude our visits to Virginia City with a stop at the Silver Terrace Cemeteries. Located at the far end of town, this spot offers a 360 degree view of the harsh, beautiful terrain; a few moments of quiet, away from the crowded main street; and an opportunity to reflect on the challenges faced by prospectors and their families....

Nice walk, steep hills.... great views. Wear good shoes and bring water. We got a bit overheated. A lot of old graves that tell stories

Not for everyone but this is an interesting stop if you like histories and don't get creeped out by the idea of walking through grave sites. It's free (make a donation!) and unlike most things in town it's open relatively late (8:00pm). It's larger than you think so plan to spend a while and make sure to wear sneakers because... More

If you visit Virginia City, you won't want to leave without a visit to the cemetery. The views, if nothing more, are worth the time. The history found here is noteworthy also. This is not a small cemetery, in fact there are multiple cemeteries at this location. If you look down at one point, you just see grave markers scattered... More
