- The history of the wild, wild West permeates this wonderful little town hidden in the foothills between Reno and Carson City. As you stroll the wooden sidewalks, you are transported back to the 1860s when the Comstock Lode of gold and silver was discovered. Instant millionaires were made here and some of their mansions have been preserved throughout the years. One of the finest examples is The Castle on Millionaire's Row. Visitors can also tour some of the original gold and silver digs such as the Chollar Mine, the Silver Terrace Cemetery, the Fourth Ward School, The Way It Was Museum and St. Mary's Catholic Church. Many special events take place in the little town during the year including the Camel Races and Christmas on the Comstock Parade. The town has some quaint hotels or bed and breakfasts to accommodate visitors such as the Gold Hill Hotel and Sugarloaf.
