Virginia City

This ace reminds a lot of Harpers Ferry. It’s larger and with a western flare of course and today much a tourist attraction. The signature here is mining and gold. Except that the veins being exploited come in cars and buses. Still, below the surface there’s a motherlode of history that defines the early western expansion.

Interestingly there are still a few tangible connections. The mining continues. The gunfights have moved on to the State House.
