Historic Downtown Silver City

SILVER CITY SPRANG TO LIFE DURING THE SUMMER of 1870. The discovery of silver brought thousands of miners, and merchants followed in their footsteps. The town's founders decided Silver City would be “built to last.” In 1880, an ordinance was passed requiring masonry construction for new buildings. This left behind solid commercial buildings, brick Victorian homes, and adobe structures. Devastating floods between 1890 and 1910 washed away the original Main Street and all but one of its handsome brick buildings. The stately Warren house is the sole survivor. What used to be Main Street is now known as the Big Ditch. The Silver City Visitor Center and Big Ditch Park provide gateways into Historic Downtown for visitors and residents. Silver City MainStreet Project has provided comprehensive downtown revitalization services since 1985. This vibrant award-winning district has over 200 entities including retail and service businesses, art studios, government services, nonprofits, churches, and schools. It’s a treasure of a downtown!
