Welcome to my new website! This summer looks like it will be another great time to visit Virginia City. There is a great chance that the little train will be running. The Montana Heritage Commission is working deligently to try and make that happen. I will post updates on the large engine, #12, as I have news. Other changes this year at The Gingerbread House include late afternoon appetizers and beverages, wine, beer or non alcoholic drinks for the enjoyment of guests staying in the house itself. Come and visit! Take care, Karen
