  water filtration of some kind, mostly to reduce hardness, but

  also to eliminate iron.

  Dial Up: View Providers

  Satellite: ViaSat, Dish, DirecTv

- Mail: USPS, UPS, FedEx & On-Trac deliver to the VCH. If you

  want to receive regular mail and did not already have access

  to a mailbox** located in the Mail Sheds on Cartwright, you'll

  need to either get a P.O. Box at the Virginia City Post Office

  or secure a mailbox in the mail sheds. If you choose to

  secure a mailbox, you'll need to complete the transaction at

  the Steamboat Station Post Office which is located in South

  Reno.

 

    *As of November 2019, AT&T is the only provider with equipment on

     the VCH Monopine ( aka Cell Tower ). Currently, only AT&T subscribers

     have noticed either an increase in existing coverage or coverage where

     none existed. Verizon seems to be second in terms of coverage in the

     VCH but it is extremely limited.

  **Any certified mail, deliveries that require a signature or packages too

     large to fit in the parcel lockers will have to be picked up from the 

     Steamboat Station Post Office in South Reno.

The Virginia City Highlands Property Owners Association (VCHPOA) does not endorse any company listed above. The listing of companies on this

page does not in any way add credibility to the company.
