Check out this great little post on Silverton with some fun historic facts! We know we love our special small town but it is always fun to hear it from the outside! Enjoy!
“It’s “Did you know about Oregon” Friday. The name Silverton was due to the town being located on Silver Creek. 1. Adolph Wolf had this built for his hardware store in 1891. He served as mayor and helped bring the railroad to town. 2.. This 1904 house was built for June and Eleanor Drake. June Drake was a commercial photographer and used his photos of Silver Falls in a campaign to establish Silver Falls State Park. 3. The 5 sided Ames building was erected in 1905 to house the People’s Bank. It appeared in a scene in the movie “Bandits”. 4&5. The 1906 train depot was sold for a $1 in the 1970’s with the requirement that it had to be moved. The Chamber of Commerce is the current occupant. 6. The 1925 City hall was designed by the city engineer.”- Darrell Jabin; Oregon’s Traveling Historian
