Silver Reef Ghost Town

Silver Reef was a mining town that thrived from 1876 to 1890. The ruins of Silver Reef are a ghost town in southern Utah, famous for its mining legacy. The town was established after silver was found in sandstone at the site, which was extremely rare, and made the town rich indeed! By 1876 there were already 150 people living here, and by 1890, this had increased to over 1 thousand residents - making up around 40% percent population growth between those years alone!!
