Silver City Cemetery

Silver City Cemetery

Silver City, was located just south of the Canadian River, where the Chisholm Trail crossed. It is known, that a Mexican family lived nearby and sold quirts (stock whips) to the cowboys before 1880.
William Ward, a cowboy, was shot in 1876, in a gunfight and was the first one to be buried in the Silver City Cemetery.
In 1890, the Rock Island Railroad extended it tracks south of the river and the citizens of Silver City migrated to Minco and Silver city died out.
All that is left of Silver City is the well kept cemetery surrounded by farms, oil wells, and cattle.
