SHS Profile
The Silverton Historical Society was formed in 1981 with the mandate to collect and preserve the history of our town from its beginning in the 1890's. Silverton, once known as Four-Mile City, grew out of a regional silver boom. Some past and current Silverton Historical Society projects include the Frank Mills Outdoor Mining Machinery Museum, the restoration of an 1896 log cabin, the maintenance of heritage mining trails, the development of a historic walking tour, and an Interpretive Centre, which houses the Society's archives. The Silverton Historical Society continues to add to its collection and pursue new projects in an effort to capture the old days of mining and the unique stories of the individuals who shaped this town.
