Silver Rush Saga

Presented by Mary Ellen Gilliland

Summit County’s frenzied gold boom has yielded colorful stories.  But what about the less chronicled silver rush? Summit County led the nation in silver production in 1905.  Local author and historian Mary Ellen Gilliland will present historic photographs and weave old timer tales to portray a dazzling silver scene in Montezuma, Frisco, the Ten Mile Canyon and more.
