New Audio Tour of the Silver Terrace Cemetery is Now Live!

Boy Scout Troop 847, Callum Bodington-“There are several people I would like to thank for helping me make this Eagle Scout project a reality. First I want to thank the CCF Board for allowing me to create this audio walking tour of the Silver Terrace Cemetery, particularly Candace for all her encouragement, guidance, and hard work in helping to make this happen, Liz for her amazing photos, Arline for her impeccable historic research, Cal for facilitating the cemetery clean up, and Jeff for putting up with me taking over the History Center building on multiple occasions! I would also like to thank Troop 847, the adult leaders and the parents who volunteered their time to help with the cemetery clean up. Big thank you to all the people who lent their voices to this audio tour, including the FunTime theater actors who ran over to the History Cemetery to record in between the Voices of the Past performances. Lastly, I would like to thank my Mom for her endless support, for constantly chauffeuring me around, and for lending her voice to Harriet Jones for the audio tour.”

Message from the Executive Director,
Comstock Cemetery Foundation.

We are grateful for the completion of this project. For years we have wanted to have an audio tour of our main Silver Terrace cemeteries in Virginia City. A tour that would allow the user to control the content dependent on their time and their interests. Callum Bodington, Troup 847, selected the creation of this audio tour as his 2019 Eagle Scout project. 

The narrators you will hear are not professional actors but rather Comstock Cemetery Foundation (CCF) Board of Directors, actors from the Funtime Theater troupe, and other community volunteers. 

Public suggestions are welcome. Please email any ideas to

We have many to thank, starting with our narrators: 29 Stops, 25 Voices, and all recorded in 1 Day.
