The Mackay Mansion is family owned and operated for over 15 years now.
Built in 1859 by the Hearst family the Mackay Mansion allows people to step back in time into a real victorian era mansion. It is one of the few remaining original structures and survived both the major fires. It also is one of the few building with original furniture, carpet, wall paper, chandeliers, and much more!
The Mackay Mansion was owned by John Mackay during the one of the biggest silver strikes in history. The four Silver Kings of Virginia City, John Mackay, James Fair, James Flood, and William O'Brien, conducted all their mining business inside the Mackay Mansion mining office. Here we give people a chance to see exactly what the victorian life style was like! Please give us a call or email for any questions you may have.
