History & History Related Items

Silver Plume history:

Silver Plume is a former silver mining camp. Gold was discovered in the area in 1859 and thousands descended in search of great fortune. People came from all over the globe making these new mining towns quite diverse and multi-cultural. Once people realized that the grey material they had shunted aside was actually silver and was valuable, the silver era began. The boom ended in the 1890’s when the price of silver fell dramatically. Towns like Silver Plume had to adapt and many developed tourist attractions using the old mines and mills. It is a popular spot for photographers and nature lovers.
