Silverton Historic Cemetary


The 42-acre cemetery is a sombre reminder of the harsh lives lived in Silverton’s early years.
Mining accidents were tragically common. Isolation meant that fresh water, fruit, vegetables and sanitation was often in short supply.
Typhoid was a constant part of life that took the lives of many children.

The Silverton Historical Cemetery is a final resting place for some of the pioneers of the region.
Fenced in 1888, the historical site and cannot be disturbed.

A separate section has been established for the local residents to be interred.
