HISTORIC FOURTH WARD SCHOOL—Virginia City
The last one standing of its kind in the United States. Follow students’ footsteps through the original 1876 school building. Sit in the same wooden desks as they did from 1876 to 1936. You can explore Virginia City history, Mark Twain's life, letter press printing, alumni’s lives, Comstock mining, abandoned mine issues, and new exhibits in the other classrooms. Ask in the museum store if you can pull the rope to hear the school bell.
