Silver City | New Mexico | Historic District

This old house is on a hill overlooking the historic district.  It has been well taken care of and has been split into apartments. Under the right circumstances, it would be great haunted house.

This old hotel has been turned into shops facing the main road in the historic district.  Notice the steps at the corner, this is not an area to try to step off the curbs in most areas.   The side street entrance of the hotel is not as fancy, as you can see below.

However, if you go inside, the lobby is still elegant.

This is the City Hall, with the four-sided clock on the corner.


I checked all four sides of the clock, but each side showed a different time.  Still, it's interesting, and it dates back to 1918.

The Buffalo Bar has been closed, but is right next door to the Court House.


The following shot of some small shops reminds me of how island buildings are decorated.

Surprisingly, the theater is still operating.

The old gas station has been turned into another shop. 
This adobe-looking building looks very authentic southwest.

The bakery is now another shop.


Following are a couple of buildings that are not on the main street. Most of these buildings are from the early 1900s.  Some buildings were destroyed during serious floods around the turn of the century, so some history has been lost.

The following art panels were on the side of a building.  On each of them, the arch around the center scene has embossed ceramic or glass features.
