Explore a real Wild West Ghost Town!

Learn the history of Silver Reef, a rough and tumble mining town that holds the distinction of being the only place in America where silver was found in sandstone. Use our map to explore various sites, including the Elkhorn Saloon, where most of the shootouts took place; the Cassidy Powder House, where explosives were kept; and the Wells Fargo, where the stagecoach pulled up and silver was stored. See photographs of the illustrious personalities who lived here in the 1800s, from Margaret Grambs to Sam Wing. All this and more is just a click away!
