California State Historic Landmark 202
Located in Canada de la Madera (Timber Canyon), Silverado was a mining boom town
founded in 1878 when silver was discovered nearby. During the colorful life of the boom, 1878-1881,
miners, flocking to the area, established a thriving community, served daily by stage from Los
Angeles and Santa Ana.
