The Comstock Historic District Commission was created by Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 384 and dates to 1969. The state agency encourages the preservation and promotion of historic resources with the Virginia City National Landmark District, which the state refers to as the Comstock Historic District. The Commission provides permits for projects dealing with the exteriors of all buildings within the district, the construction of new structures, and work affecting pavement or fencing. The Commission also takes a proactive role in encouraging archaeological investigations and cemetery restoration within the district.
