History

Founded in 1854, Silverton is an historic town with stately homes shaded by grand, old oak trees nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Our community is surrounded by fields of crops including hazelnuts, marionberries, strawberries, grass seed and irises. Once a logging town, Silverton is now known for its gardens, restaurants, antique boutiques, art galleries and shops. With its scenic beauty, rich history, charming downtown and gems of nature, it is no wonder Silverton is Oregon’s Garden City – the perfect place to grow your dreams!


Culture

Art provides the vibrant thread that runs through Silverton’s tapestry.  Painters, players, poets and musicians all take a turn at center stage in community life.  Silverton hosts several festivals throughout the year that celebrate culture, The Silverton Poetry Festival in April, Silverton Wine & Jazz Festival in May, Silverton Strawberry Festival in June, Homer Davenport Days and Silverton Art Festival in August. 

Theater abounds with Brush Creek Theater presenting plays in an intimate setting, Missoula Children’s Theater rolls into town each year to teach local children about theater and the joy and discipline of producing a play together and Silverton High School has a state of the art theater where their drama department produces several plays a year.  First Friday is a festive monthly event as galleries open new exhibits and host evening receptions.
