The Comstock Cemeteries Live

Last year more people got married in the Silver Terrace cemeteries then got buried.

The Comstock cemeteries, located in Nevada have hosted numerous groups of people since 1859 and they have all left a mark on the landscapes; The Mourner, The Visitor, The Vandal, and The Tourist.


Under such circumstances, when a poor fellow fell sick, his recovery could only be regarded as a matter of luck. No record of the deaths was kept. The mass of the emigration were strangers to each other, and it concerned nobody in particular when a man pegged out, except to put him in a hole somewhere out of the way.      

J. Ross Browne, 1860

Dear Visitor:

We are pleased you have ventured to our website and hope you find our modest beginning of some assistance.


The cemeteries are not open during the evening and no exceptions are made to this Storey County code except on Halloween when the site is monitored 24-7.


Over the years, and recently, ghost hunters, vandals, and thieves have left a negative mark on these sites and public visitation is controlled for the cemeteries as it is for modern sites.


Filming, wedding, and group events can apply for a use permit (fees associated) by calling 775-847-0281

More information on these fees and permissions, go to "Tours and Visitors".
