The Birth Of A (New) Tree!
Building the base of this gigantic tree.
It wasn't an easy feat, especially without instructions
It was an endeavor, but well worth it!
Michael Flynn was our chief ornament hanger.
Silent Riders Michelle Buckman & Banker place the final ornament.
The Silent Riders couldn't be more proud of her!
To all involved in building and bringing this tree to our town!
This is the perfect family fun adventure
The group posed for a portrait before heading out on their journey
It's whistle pierced the cold crisp night air.
She was decked out in ribbons and bows as well as lights.
For the magical mystery train tour!
Many on lookers were thrilled to have been able to catch the ambiance that was in abundance.
The Silent Riders became a part of the sight seeing
The train car was warm and riders were greeted with Hot Chocolate, cookies, peppermint sticks and a few toys.
From a distance children of all ages could see Santas workshop.
Santa called out children by name and reassured them their lists had been received.
I am on the planning committee for Dayton Valley Days. Last year The Silent Riders, participated in the event. Your organization was a fantastic addition to the event! This year is going to be much bigger and much better planned. Dayton Chamber Of Commmerce has taken the reigns on the planning. The event will be be focused more on Daytons early history. We would be honored by having The Silent Riders for the event! It will be Sept. 17-18. Thank you so much for last year! I hope you can make it this year!
We met a wonderful young man named Junior while celebrating our anniversary at the Millionaires Club in Virginia City. He was passionate about your organization and so enagaging. You should be proud he’s part of your group.
Your group is amazing and inspiring to get myself some 1800's garb and join up!-
Hello Folks it's Matt!
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the Silent Rider's warm hospitality bestowed upon me yesterday. I went into a saloon in the afternoon and ended up spending a grand time with you folks well into the evening. Some of the folks I met were Scott, Ernie, Dylan, Lisa, Tammy & the "Mayor". There were lot's others but I can't remember all the names. You all love history as much as I do and I can't tell you how fun it was to hang out with you all! I have gone a few places wearin' my stuff and not one club has ever been so welcoming especially to a California Tourist, lol. Anyway it was hell of a lot of fun and please tell Scott I have now taken up the expensive habit of cigars to add to my vices, thanks pardner lol.

The “Virginia City Silent Riders” is a private, volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation of all aspects of the “1800’s historically correct” history of the National Historic Landmark District encompassing the former mining villages of Virginia City and Gold Hill in Storey County, as well as Dayton and Silver City in Lyon County. We are “STEWARDS OF THE PAST, AMBASSADORS TO THE FUTURE”©.
Founded in 2018 and trademarked with the Nevada Secretary of State as the “Virginia City Nevada Silent Riders ™, the “Silent Riders” were historically members of the “vigilance committee” that existed in Virginia City during the 1870’s. Our members, including both men and women, walk the boardwalks wearing 1870’s period clothing, “making history come alive” for the nearly two million annual visitors to Virginia City, Nevada.
