    : The Idaho Hotel was established in 1863, originally in Ruby City, about a mile downstream from Silver City. In July 1866 a large 3 story wing was added to the hotel, then later that year Ruby City lost its position as county seat to Silver City and the hotel was dismantled and moved to Silver City. I was just in Silver City a couple years ago and found all this information out; if you want to see the pictures I took of Silver City and the Idaho Hotel, go to www.desertislands.org and look up Silver City, Idaho (they had to make a new section just for this because the website specializes in Utah and Nevada; the Great Basin area). Hope this information helps.

    : Thanks. I visited Silver City in July on a return trip from the Seattle area and my photos were just added to the silver City page. Loved that drive into and out of the mountains.

    : That info was probably where it could be easily seen, but don't recall.

    I drove through silver city for my first time this last summer. Plan to explore the area much more this year! I have fallen in love with Idaho since i have moved here. The west is much better than the east.
