Long Description:
Here is a VERY GOOD Webpage about this Cemetery

Discovered in 1869. In 1908, 1500 people lived in town. The town was deserted in 1930 after the mines ran out.

UPDATE: Silver City, Utah. Not much remains of this old town. From my understanding the tailings have been reworked. A modern mining operation is in place. If the road through Silver City is followed around to the north you will find a recent (70's or 80's maybe) mining operation that is not currently in use but all the equipment is still in place including the elevators and the like. You can go right up to the equipment but it is all posted no trespassing though it appears few have taken the warning to heart since vandals and people using the equipment as target practice have taken their toll. - Brian Snarr.

Reason for Abandonment: Economic

Date Abandoned: 01/01/1930
