  • 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.  more »
  • 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...  more »
  • 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...  more »

  • Wandering through a cemetery as a tourist is a strange activity, but so helpful in feeling the history of a place. This is no exception. Notables are found here like the Storey the county is named after. And there are fine views of the surroundings.
  • Be prepared to walk, up hill, down hill, uneven surfaces and gravel. It's like a walk back in time with most graves from the 1800's. Please leave a donation as the cemetery is in various grades of disarray. It's sad to see the resting place of so many in such need of maintenance. Modern cemeteries have a trust so there will always be money to maintain the property but most of the people buried here died broken and busted.
  • It was fun walking through the past and learning about the people who lived and died durring the mid and late 1800s the common theme was so many young people are burried here it must have been hard here also many children buried here i wish i could have seen a ghost as i heard the cemetery is haunted no such luck this time maybe on our next trip as i do plan on exploring these areas again in the summer
  • Great history and views from this cemetery. Sometimes beautiful and sometimes a little creepy but you just can't beat the history here. Wear comfortable shoes you walk on ravel. Please leave a small donation to help this cemetery.
  • We got rained out when a thunderstorm came through just as we got there. But the cemetery is very well kept and very interesting to read the tombstones.
