Great from the ghost town from the Comstock Lode...



Item # 668834

July 11, 1877

GOLD HILL DAILY NEWS, Gold Hill, Nevada, July 11, 1877  A fascinating newspaper from this town just outside of Virginia City, at one point a booming mining town with a population of 8,000. Today it is all but a ghost town with just 191 residents. It was prosperous during the 1870's by mining the famous Comstock Lode.
Not surprisingly a fair amount of mining-related news including a page 3 column headed: "THE COMSTOCK" "Latest Official Mining News" and more
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, somewhat fragile & should be handled carefully.
