Virginia City, Nevada is located at the head end of the famous Comstock Lode silver vein. Virginia City was a boom town during the gold and silver rush of the late nineteenth century. The Comstock Lode was the richest silver vein in the history of the United States.

There are still a few operating mines in Virginia City, some of which are open to public tours. Especially fine is the mine which opens into a restaurant.
