Silverton, Texas is a tiny West Texas town that has nestled its one square mile existence in the middle of the surrounding farmland and pastures of

grazing cattle. It is the county seat of Briscoe County and has a population of around 700 people. The town was established in 1891, and the name

Silverton, is said to have come from the silvery reflections on the playa lakes in the area. The current courthouse was built in 1922 and next to it still

stands the Briscoe Country Jail that was built in 1894 of hand cut stone that was hauled by horse-drawn wagons from the nearby Tule Canyon.



Silverton is primarily a farming and ranching community, but recently wind farms have become an area for new jobs, however the school is the largest

employer. There are around 200 kids that attend Silverton ISD from Pre-K through 12th Grade. 6 man football, basketball, and stock showing are the major

activities for kids to participate. The faculty and the education provided to the students are both of the highest quality and importance.



In the past several years, Silverton has started to experience some new life being added to their town. In 2013 the Silverton Library was moved from the

courthouse basement to its new home across the street just East of the courthouse. The Silverton ISD is completing their last phase on their newly

renovated school, and all of Silverton are anxiously awaiting the completion of its new downtown community and agricultural center.
