Long Description:
E Clampus Vitus Building

Constructed the year following the great 1875 conflagration, the building had deteriorated in latter-days until all that remained was the front brick facade in 1969. During this year the site was purchased by the Virginia City Chapter of E Clampus Vitus with the intent of restoring the historic property and utilizing it as their lodge hall. For many years it had been referred to as The Moran Building, named for a local assayer and surveyor who retained the premises from 1905 until 1938.
