The Museum is located in the original Wells Fargo Building built in 1877. It is the oldest Wells Fargo Express Station still in existence, and features the original vault used to store the silver bullion waiting to be shipped. Now the Museum is packed with artifacts from Silver Reef's rich history. Back in the 1800's the south side of the building housed a mercantile store, and today it is where out gift shop resides. The north side of the basement is used for our Mine Exhibit, while the south side stores many of the artifacts found in Silver Reef not on display.
The Hurricane Pioneer Museum is located in the old Hurricane Library & City Hall building.
Silver Reef was a mining boom town in the late 1800's with the discovery of silver in sandstone- a geological rarity. The area is now a Wild West Ghost Town located in a stunning geological setting.
