  1. Audio tour Summary
  2. Audio tour Summary

    The main cemetery in Virginia City is called Silver Terrace, managed by local non-profit The Comstock Cemetery Foundation. For years it has been the CCF's goal to do a better job of sharing its story with the thousands of visitors it hosts each year. As it is located in a National Landmark District it would be inappropriate to litter the landscape with multiple signs in order to tell the tales of those that lived and died here over 160 years ago. With the help of a local Eagle Scout project we have been able to create this audio tour.

    29 Stops and 25 voices will help us to share the history of the landscape and its people. And, we know our visitors - you can shut it off if you have to leave, skip around from spot to spot and frankly, just customize the tour to fit your level of interest. Enjoy and be safe…

    As a local (Dayton), this is wonderfully done! They are not just headstones, but real people who lived, loved, and died on the Comstock.

    I did this twice and learned a ton. More than I have ever learned and enjoyed on any tour of VC. I will bring my whole family back during break.
