    : Two short articles on Silver City can be found in The Histoical Guide to Utah Ghost Towns, by Stephen L. Carr, and Some Dreams Die, Utah's Ghost Towns and Lost Treasures by George A. Thompson. An Article on the Tintic Mining District of which Silver City was a part is found in chapter 8 of Boom Towns of the Great Basin. These can be found in most large public libraries. For more in depth information two other books deal specifically with the Tintic Mining District: The Towns of Tintic, by Beth Kay Harris pub. 1961, and Faith Hope and Prosperity by Philip F. Notariani, 1982. Both books deal with all of the Tintic area with the emphasis on Eureka, Utah (a semi ghost), but there is good information spread through both on Silver City. The accounts of the mine wars in the 1870's at Eureka In Beth Harris's book I thought was really interesting.

    : Contact the Historial Society in Eureka, Utah or contact Mrs. AB Seaman's in Eureka, Utah. You will find her number in the telephone book.



    : Good Luck!
