Traveling Smithsonian Exhibit
Silver Reef Museum is hosting this exhibit in the Fall of 2017.
We will need volunteers to help with various aspects of planning,
designing and building a companion exhibit that focuses on the theme locally.
Additionally, we are always looking for volunteers to work shifts in the Museum and to
help with special events.
If you have interest in any of these volunteer opportunities,

Women of the Silver Reef ~
Old mining towns seem to be like the men that lived in them, rough, tough, and lawless. However, a quarter of the population of Silver Reef was female. What brought these women and children to Silver Reef, and what did they do there?
Learn about the women of Silver Reef and see the types of clothing that they wore at the end of the nineteenth century.
Join us at 10:00 on Saturday, September 24, 2016, at the Cosmopolitan Meeting Hall in Silver Reef, Utah.
Presentations will be given by
Silver Reef historians
Elaine Young and Dixie Miller.
Suggested Donation: $3.00
