Cemetery notes and/or description:
Exempt Firemen's Cemetery is part of the Comstock Cemetery, originally called the Silver Terrace Cemeteries in Virginia City. The first burial took place at this site in 1860. Eleven of the Comstock's thirty-one cemeteries are located at this one location. Some of these eleven groups include the Masons, Pacific Coast, Order of Oddfellows, Silver Terrance, Knights of Pythias, West End, Wilson & Brown Funeral House, Ancient Order of Redmen and Storey County Public cemeteries. Cemeteries during this era were considered good places to go for quiet contemplation, which made them the forerunners of municipal parks. You can see ornate fencing and hand-carved headstones depicting the life spans and of both the rich and poor who lived in this mining town.
