Re: Looking for Silverton Information


Hi Mark!

That's a great offer I can't refuse!  I hope the member you speak of is doing well! 

If you make the trip north, I'm looking for a "smallish" (one or two story) wooden building with interesting graphics and, perhaps, some interesting architecture (trimwork, pillars, bay window, whatever...).  Photographs are all I need.  Right now I'm considering the Herr, Hodges, & Herr building (Many More Mtns, V3, p227) or the SIlverton Hotel (across the street).  But more photos would be very helpful and leave less to interpretation.

Someday I hope to tackle one of the many masonry buildings on Greene Street, but reproducing it as a kit would be a whole new area for me.

Finally,, more for Dave, Vol 2 of the George L. Beam book by J. Thode contains some very sharp pics of Silverton's structures, but close ups of individual structures are rare.

The San Juan County Historical scociety is a very small organization not helped by the age of its members a key one of which had a major stroke just a few weeks ago. If it's just photos that are needed I'll drive up there (snow permitting!) and do the deed. Greene Street frontages and sides were possible. Any preferences?
