#OnThisDay in 1859, the discovery of the Comstock Lode right here in Virginia City changed the course of history forever. 🏞️⛏️

This rich silver deposit sparked a mining frenzy, leading to the rapid development of our beloved town and be a part of the foundation for the bustling state Nevada would become. 🌟

But the impact didn't stop there. The wealth extracted from the Comstock Lode played a crucial role in financing the Union during the Civil War, shaping the outcome of the America we have today. 💰

We can thank the Comstock Lode for a plethora of historic icons like Mark Twain, John Mackay, Adolf Sutro, and so many others. From the opulent lifestyles and iconic figures, the discovery of silver in Nevada sparked a cultural revolution that shaped American folklore and the greatest era of America, the Wild West!

Today, we honor the pioneers and miners who shaped our past and paved the way for the vibrant community we cherish today. 🙌 Here's to celebrating the discovery, history, and progress that defines Virginia City! #OnlyinVC

Hoping to make it up there this summer from Modesto, Ca. My deceased Husband, has a few relatives buried there and lots of family History I want to dig into. His family ended up in Yerington. His Grandfather was Hugh Henrichs and his Aunt Bobby Wilson was a school teacher in the area for many years.

...and reading novels set in Virginia City. Like mine! "Who Have the Power" and "A Dangerous Liberty." Hurry up ...ADL won't be available after this week for a while (new publishing contract) and it's already won the Romance award from the Independent Press Association. I'm a New Yorker, but I've loved traveling to your city!!!

Street Vibrations this weekend. Going to be very crowded. 👏
