Living Legend Docent Program


DSC 2125Relive the west in your own way. Become an official Virginia City "living legend" docent of the Virginia City experience. A chautauqua type program, our Living Legend program encourages you to select an historical character from Virginia City's past or invent one of your own. Develop that character to its fullest. Walk the streets of Virginia City dressed as your selected personage (male or female).

As an official "Living Legend" you will be recognized throughout the town and will quickly become a focus point for the tourist. Several incentive factors go along with official involvement with this program to encourage your participation.
