History

Silverton came into being after miners discovered galena, lead and silver there.

It would become a community with three general stores, six hotels, a school and a phone connection by the 1890s.

Silverton almost became a ghost town when mining activity declined, but it persisted.

Today the Silverton Historical Society tells its story.
