Silverton Chamber & Visitors Center
As one local puts it, 'Silverton: A gritty little mining town with Victorian pretensions!' Once the stomping ground of silver kings and railroad giants, Silverton survives today as one of Colorado's most endearing destinations. The Silverton district opened legally to miners in 1874, following the Brunot Treaty with the Utes. An estimated 2000 men moved into the region that year. Secluded at 9,318 feet, a visit to Silverton is one that you will not soon forget any time of year. A perfect combination of supreme natural beauty and magnificent Victorian charm. Stay and play summer and winter. Activities year-round: 4-wheeling and snowmobiling, hiking and skiing (both cross-country and downhill), just to name a few.
