Silverton Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 38 photos
Originally called Baker's Park, Silverton is the earlyest gold and Silver town in the region.
Few new buildings have been built here since 1910.
Silverton remains a turn-of-the century Victorian scene and is designated a National Historic District.

Silverton is a great tourist attraction.

The Old Hundred offers gold panning for all ages. Free with the purchase of a tour. The miner's sluicebox is "salted"... more travel advice
