Virginia City, NV! Virginia City, at one time, was a thriving mining town. Many of its buildings have been preserved and it is still a working town with churches, a high school, and many buildings and homes. There is a train that runs. We weren't able to get on it in time (it pulled out before we could find the train loading area), but it was nice to hear it! We drove around town and took some pics before heading out to look for wild horses, which we did find grazing on a hill outside of town! ABC Wednesday for June 17, 2009.
