When the Mark Twain Musuem of Virginia City, Nevada was established it paid homage to the author who worked for the newspaper “The Territorial Enterprise”. Mark Twain wrote about his Nevada adventures in his book “Roughin’ It” which the museum had utilized for some of the information regarding Twain’s life.
The Mark Twain Museum was owned by a family and was established in a former Territorial Enterprise Building that was used after the newspaper moved from Genoa to Virginia City in 1860. However, the museum is currently closed, with only historical markers viable from the outside of the building. Across the street from the former museum is the Mark Twain Saloon.
Author Philip Hamilton visited the site of the former Mark Twain Musuem on his way to the Burning Man Festival.
