Description Saloon in the Price Hotel, Silverton.

As with most businesses in Silverton, the Price Hotel's hey day was the 1890's to the 1910's.

So long as the railroad was sunning and people were pulling out any amount of valuable ore, the town needed hotels, saloons, restaurants, grocery stores, barbershops, meat markets, and a post office.

By World War I, however, few people remained and no commercially significant ore was being shipped out of Silverton. per Mary Deaton
