SILVERTON - The effort to reactivate the Pride of the West Mill in Howardsville has taken a “gigantic” step forward, according to officials with Colorado Goldfields Inc., the dormant mill’s owner.

SILVERTON – The word “cemetery” typically conjures images of rolling green lawns criss-crossed by neatly manicured pathways. Not so at Silverton’s Hillside Cemetery. Here, the ground is sloped and uneven, the landscaping is “au naturel” and the history is colorful.
Stage Set for Anvil Mountain
The Silverton Town Council has unanimously approved an amended intergovernmental agreement regarding the Anvil Mountain workforce housing subdivision, setting the stage for the project to get under way this summer. The primary change involved the county complying with a town request to install an automatic flushing system on the proposed dead-end water main to the subdivision at the former Walsh Smelter site at the south end of town. Town officials were concerned about possible freezing of the water line or the sewer lines, particularly in the early phases of the project when just a handful of homes may be built in the proposed 32-lot subdivision on 14 acres of county-owned land.
