Love the history & stories that old cemetery’s tell. Silverton was no exception, so many lives lost at such young ages. Tells the story of how harsh life was back then.

This place makes you realize how lucky we are not to have lived here one hundred years ago. The loss of children and miners is found on many headstones.
