    LOT OF TWO VIRGINIA CITY, NEVADA BIRD'S-EYE VIEWS 1880's. Virginia City, Nevada is one of the oldest established cities in Nevada. It was a mining boomtown; one of the most famous boomtowns in the Old West as it virtually appeared overnight as a result of the "Comstock Lode" silver strike of 1859. During its peak, Virginia City had a population of nearly 30,000. When the Comstock Lode ended in 1898, the city's population declined sharply.
