The Virginia City Preservation Alliance has published an anthology of articles on the 150 year history of Virginia City. Nuggets in Time includes several previously unpublished articles and photos and is a limited edition issue of 1,000 copies; each copy individually numbered. The book (126 pages) includes 54 articles prepared by 16 authors.

As the editors write in the Introduction to Nuggets in Time:

"It is our hope that this anthology will provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the wonderfully rich story of the people and events which have shaped the first 150 colorful years of this American treasure. As the first capital, and site of one of the richest gold deposits ever discovered, Virginia City was the epicenter of the Montana Territory during its infancy."
