The Mining History Association returned to the historic Comstock Lode in Virginia City and Gold Hill, Nevada for its 25th Anniversary Annual Conference.  This was the site of the first MHA conference in 1990.  In 1961, the Virginia City Historic District was designated a National Historic Landmark.  It includes the four towns of Virginia City and Gold Hill in Storey County and Dayton and Silver City in the adjacent Lyon County.  The 2015 Conference included activities in all four of these towns.

Historic Pipers Opera House (above) in Virginia City and the Delta Saloon across the street were the venues for the Program Sessions on Friday, June 12th.

Ron James welcomed the MHAers and presented an “Introduction to Virginia City.”

The restored Opera House auditorium provided comfortable seating for the over 150 attendees.  An area for vendors was set aside at the rear of the auditorium.  The Opera House was also the location of the Awards Banquet.

On July 13th, the Program Sessions moved to the historic Gold Hill Depot. A vendors’ area was located at the rear.  The depot was also the site of the Presidential Luncheon and the starting point for the tours of Gold Hill and Comstock Mining Inc.
