Virginia City - Nevada's former gold rush town

Virginia City is located in the US state of Nevada about 30 miles south of Reno in the Reno-Tahoe region at an altitude of 1,896 m and has a population of about 850. The foundation of the settlement is based on the fact that there were rich gold and silver deposits in the area. The founding year was 1859, in which the first settlements were built on Mount Davidson. The city was originally supposed to be called "Varina", but then the name Virginia City caught on. Virginia City was one of the first settlements in Nevada to be established.

Virginia City - Gold and Camels

The first gold was found in 1863. Virginia City quickly grew into a city and in 1875 it was the largest town between San Francisco and Chicago with a population of 30,000. The salt required for the extraction of precious metals was brought to Virginia City by camels from 1861. The camels stayed and camel races every September are now a tourist attraction in the city. In 1864, 9,000 people were living in Virginia City.

By the time the precious metal mines were shut down, gold and silver worth around half a billion dollars had been mined. After 1875 the precious metal boom went downhill, the reasons for this being the falling precious metal prices and a large fire in 1875 that destroyed most of the buildings in the town. Because of the gold and silver finds, Abraham Lincoln elevated Nevada to a state in 1861 in order to be able to use the profits from the precious metal finds for the civil war. The Comstock ore vein was the most productive ore vein in the area and was instrumental in the recovery of Virginia City.

The Comstock mine one of the first mines in the world

The arduous eight-hour work was then paid at $ 4 an hour. The Comstock Mine was one of the first in the world to use dynamite for blasting. After a mining accident in 1869 with 35 victims among the miners, the tunnel system was equipped with a better ventilation and escape system. But when the modernization measures were completed in 1878, the gold reserves had already run dry.

At the end of the 19th century, Virginia City had less than 1,000 residents due to the declining finds. It was not until the open-cast mine that the town got a certain boom that lasted until 1937. After that, only quartz was mined.
