Halls and Events something for everyone
Silverton Gallery: Located next to the Village Office in our Municipal Block, the Gallery was originally built as a Schoolhouse in the early 1900s. It now houses an art gallery; performance room with theatre lights & sound system; workshops; dressing rooms; and a kitchen. The Gallery operates year-round, thanks to a host of volunteers and a small paid staff during the summer months.
