Flowery Cemetery

Perched on a hill above town is Virginia City's first cemetery. Known by a number of names, including the Flowery, Flowery Hill, Mount Pleasant, or now just simply the Pioneer Cemetery, it was created in 1860. At some point a firemen's section was established, but little else is known of the cemetery's history or how many were buried there. By about 1862 it was replaced by the Silver Terrace Cemeteries due to its difficult to access location. Though today it is best known as the purported final resting place of famed prostitute Julia Bulette, a handful of other nameless graves can also be located.
