Virginia City Nevada sprang up as a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, and numerous mines were opened. At the city's peak of population in the mid-1860s, it had an estimated 25,000 residents. The mines' output declined after 1878, and the city declined. As of 2010 Census the population of Virginia City was about 855 and who knows how many ghosts??

World Championship Outhouse Races
.
The Races pit teams of costumed outhouse racers ( and ghosts ?? ) against each other. One person rides and the remaining team members push, pull or drag the decorated outhouses down the racetrack. This hilarious event marks a moment in history when the townspeople once took their outhouses to the streets and marched to city hall to protest new ordinances that outlawed outdoor toilets. Since then the event has become an annual tradition to relive history and honor the golden age of outdoor plumbing!
.
May the best ghost win!!
