Silver City History Town
In this May 10, 2013 photo, Rustic buildings date back to mining days in Silver City, Idaho. Tucked below the summits of the 8,000-foot-high Owyhee Mountains, sits a once-booming mining town. Today, about 150 years since it was founded, sits Silver City _ fatigued and worn, yet boasting of character and history _ one of the Gem State's most iconic ghost towns.
