Mackay house on D Street
This is the house where silver-magnate John Mackay lived when he came to Virginia City to take care of business after 1875. (Reference: Berlin, Ellin, Silver Platter, Doubleday, New York, 1957, p. 449) The Virginia City house where he and his family lived during the years when he mined his riches burned in the great fire of 1875. But see the next picture to see just how elegant this house is.
