Built in 1876, The St. Mary Louise Hospital was originally established by the Sisters of Charity and Bishop Patrick Manogue. The 36-room hospital included five wards and 12 private rooms that could accommodate more than 70 patients.
Along with continuing the traditions of the past, strolling the boardwalk and speaking with visitors about Virginia City History, the Silent Riders participate in a number of special events in town throughout the year. You can find us in virtually every parade that Virginia City has. There is one almost every month, in fact!

By the mid 1870's almost $370 million of silver ore had been extracted from the Comstock Lode. With such wealth for a town of its size, Virginia City became known as the “richest place on earth.
