My hubby and I checked out only the front portion!!! We look at every headstone. This cemetery is the best! We wish we had more time! And hey, if you ask the sheriff, word is you could visit the cemetery at night! Definitely gonna ask on our next visit! What an amazing town!
We visited the Silver Terrace Cemetery last weekend. We enjoyed a day in Virginia City, visiting shops and walking and taking in the sights.

This is not a small cemetery, in fact there are multiple cemeteries at this location. If you look down at one point, you just see grave markers scattered... 更多
We enjoyed walking through the cemetery and looking at the very old tombstones. The cemetery needs some tender loving care, but it is interesting. You can get a great view of town from it as well!
