Welcome to Virginia City & Nevada City
Where History Lives
Come see why Virginia City is the number one state owned tourist attraction and the town that literally has resisted change since 1863! View what history has left behind with hundreds of historic buildings complete with one of the largest Americana artifact sites in the United States. Stay the night in homey historic lodging, ride the train, pan for gold, attend a live theater show, shop in unique gift and specialty shops and enjoy fine dining and old-fashioned candy shop goods. Virginia City and Nevada City lie about a mile apart along Alder Gulch, the site of the richest placer gold strike in the Rocky Mountains.
