Free Attractions



The Bovey Visitor Center is a tribute to Charles and Sue Ford Bovey.  The Bovey's loved history and in 1944 visited Virginia City and recognized its historic value.  They joined others from the Historic Landmark Society of Montana.   The Bovey's spent much of their own money to purchase the buildings and property and moved several buildings alongside the 12 existing ones in Nevada City to save them from destruction.  They are recognized as pioneers in the field of historic preservation.
