We are pleased to continue our 2023 Gold Hill Lecture Series!
Thursday, November 2nd lecture will be Joe Curtis and Ron Gallagher as they conclude their series on Old Buildings – Gold Hill and American Flats!
Dinner starts at 4:30 p.m. and lecture starts at 7:00 p.m.
Joe’s parents moved to VC in 1958 when they bought a building and opened a museum dedicated to the history of life on the Comstock. He grew up amidst the museum and became infatuated with the history of the Comstock and began collecting old photos of the area back in the day.
Joe and Ron will be presenting their personal collection of photos of what WAS there and some of what is in that place now. Photos you have likely never seen before. Naked buildings with all their outer wear removed. What happened to the hundreds of buildings that were on the Comstock? The nature of their demise. This lecture will give you so answers. So, the next time you walk down the street in Virginia City you will have a whole new feel of what you would have been walking past in the 1880’s or so.
Ron Gallagher: local aged artifact of the Comstock. Raised here, lots of relatives dating well into the lower 1800’s and a head full of Comstock knowledge, recollections. stories and other associated Comstock BS.
