Maps and Self Guided Tours

The History is Always Here

Our towns are considered “open air museums”, that is most of our collections can be viewed outdoors. There are also plaques on the buildings with historical significance. You can peek in the building’s windows for a look into life as it was in the late 1800s.

Give yourself a tour.  There are many ways to experience all Virginia City and Nevada City have to offer.  Below are interactive maps, pdf maps, and audio tours.  At the bottom are links to our mobile guides for the Alder Gulch area.
