Silver Reef was a mining boomtown in the late 1800s with the discovery of silver in sandstone- a geological rarity.
The area is now a Wild West Ghost Town located in a stunning geologic setting.
Start your visit at the Wells Fargo Express Stop Building and take a guided tour of the historic Museum, which is registered on the National and Utah State Registers of Historic Buildings.
