In the spring of 1871, a secret organization comprised of leading citizens and business men, was formed to combat lawlessness in Virginia City.

This vigilance committee, known as the 601's, served to undesirables, notices to leave town. If they had not left town by 24 hours, they were severely dealt with.

Since this organization was secret, little information to the meaning of 601 exists. One theory to the number is: Six Feet Under, Zero Trial, One Rope.
