when in Virginia City be sure to walk through the cemetary. Pick up a brochure instead of just walking through. It gives a lot of info and will make more sense. Tours are also available on request.

Interesting part of the whole Virginia City experience. Was sad and interesting to see the names and ages of all the inhabitants. Also very sad to see how much the cemetery has suffered due to neglect, vandalism and thief.

The cemeteries—and there are several all gated in one location—are being maintained and restored. Some headstones are in disrepair or unreadable, but many are quite old and still clear. It is a lovely walk on a sunny day and offers a taste of old west...More

We visited this historic pioneer cemetery which is on a hillside in Virginia City. It began in 1860 We went on our own, but they also offer tours. These tours are periodic and are called Voices from the Past Tour.

If you like wandering old cemeteries, you'll love this one. It' on the side of a hill in several terraces and overlooks the valley below. It's just outside the main part of Virginia City, so easy access from there. Plenty of old markers to wander...More
