Silver City was settled in 1876 by the Gorman brothers who came to the Black Hills from Canada in search of precious metals.  They set up two mines: the Diana Lode and The Lady of the Hills. Although initially called Camp Gorman, the town was eventually platted and renamed Silver City.  By the year 1878, the population of  Silver City had grown to over 300 residents.
