Stake your claim on retail & restaurant space in preserved “Old West” Nevada
This is a must-see, rare opportunity to lease multi-use corner space in the entertainment district of Virginia City, the historically preserved 19th-Century Comstock Silver Lode mining boom town with year-round local residents and visitors. Today the Comstock is again drawing wagonloads of visitors who wander wooden sidewalks while exploring vibrant shops and honky-tonk excitement at saloons and eateries.
The Virginia City National Historic Landmark District’s 65 sites and frequent festivals annually attract over two million visitors who experience authentic Wild West boomtown life.
New building owners will work with potential tenant(s) to completely reimagine and redesign current floorspace, targeting retail for local cultural/art merchants, café or restaurant/saloon bar, family attractions, private event space and a vacation rental unit apartment. Their objective is to promote Nevada tourism, culture, past history and present lifestyle.
Virginia City’s preserved “Wild Old West” is located about a 40 minute drive from Reno-Sparks, Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Lake Tahoe recreational area, and state capital Carson City.
The main street building on the corner of C Street and Union Street is in the heart of Virginia City’s entertainment district center; the site of the former Silver Rush red-light district; across the street from the world-famous Bucket of Blood Saloon; and a block from Piper’s Opera House performing arts venue. The vibrant block is filled out with small shops, saloons and eateries.

Historic Virginia City is 25 miles from Reno and 45 miles from Lake Tahoe. Like many cities in Nevada, Virginia City was a mining “boomtown” with more than $400 million in gold and silver mined there. In today’s prices, that’s more than $20 billion.
The 19th century mining bonanza turned Virginia City into the most important industrial city between Denver and San Francisco, and it turned destitute prospectors from all over the world into millionaires. They built mansions, hospitals, churches, opera houses and schools and imported furniture, fashions and entertainment from Europe and the Orient. The riches helped finance the Civil War and went on to build empires around the world, including San Francisco, a city built with Comstock silver. While the Virginia & Truckee Railroad transported bullion from the rural highlands of Virginia City to Carson City, the Territorial Enterprise, with literary whiz Mark Twain, delivered news of the day to the vibrant mining metropolis of 25,000 citizens at its peak.
Today, Virginia City is a legacy destination for shopping, dining, events and “Old West” experiences including but not limited to mining excursions such as a tour of the only operating gold stamp mill in the country. Virginia City is the town for taking a tour. Visitors might find a glimmer of gold; walk through a town of preserved buildings with intact Wild West facades; enjoy the actors in saloons as they reenact the “good old fashioned bar fight” reminiscent of the ruthless Comstockers. There are 17 museums and no shortage of treats, including ice cream or fudge from Grandma’s Fudge Factory. For longer lasting memories, families can take a portrait at one of the many old-time photo shops. Be it a day trip or an overnight stay, Virginia City is a fun and easily accessible destination.
