Fun Fact: The TV Western series Bonanza was set on a thousand-square-mile ranch on the shore of Lake Tahoe in Nevada. The nearest town was Virginia City. Film crews shot a good deal of the series on location at the “Ponderosa Ranch.” Bonanza enjoyed a successful fourteen-year run, from 1959 to 1973. It was also the first Western in television history to be broadcast in color. The show's title "Bonanza" is a term used by miners in regards to a large vein or deposit of ore, and most likely refers to The Comstock Lode, located near the area.
