Silver Terrace Cemetery
Started in the 1860s when mining turned Virginia City into a boomtown, this cemetery was the final resting place of many of those frontiersman and women. With a sharp rise in population, the need for a cemetery quickly became a reality. Many of those placed here were born well before the early 1900s and many were born elsewhere. The motley assortment of materials used to make the markers reveal the styles that were popular in the late 1800s.
