Get Signed up for Tourism Cares in Virginia City
April 13, 2007 –The 2007 Tourism Cares for America restoration event will be held in Virginia City, Nevada, May 17-19. This historic mining town (the entire town is a National Historic Landmark) suddenly became one of the "richest places on earth" when silver was discovered in the mid-1800s. When the silver went away, so did the 30,000 inhabitants. Today, Virginia City and its 900 enthusiastic residents want to keep the Old West feel of their town intact for future generations, but need help to do so.

The levels of difficulty of projects range from archiving historic documents to sprucing up the wooden sidewalks to doing some heavy lifting along its restored railroad tracks. Volunteers will experience the warm hospitality of a grateful community as they attend functions at Piper’s Opera House and The Delta Saloon. Participants are also invited to extend their stay to enjoy an additional day of activities in Reno, Carson City or Lake Tahoe.

NTA is an annual Association Sponsor of the Tourism Cares for America events and its members and staff have been strong supporters through their participation. To learn more about the Virginia City cleanup event and to sign up click here or call Tourism Cares at 781.821.5990 or e-mail
