According to the flyer, the event will include speakers, displays, blacksmith demonstrations, a tour of historic Virginia City, a chuck wagon dinner, vehicle displays at the Ruby Dell Ranch in Alder, Montana and an overview of the period wagons housed at Nevada City as well as the town itself.

The entire area around Virginia City, MT is loaded with historical sights.

It sounds like a great event and, I can tell you from my own travels, if you love the Old West, this part of the country is packed with scenery and history! Fom the gold rush to stage coaching and freighting, robberies and hangings, the area is both beautiful and educational.
