  1. Built to Last: The Ongoing Evolution of Silver City

    June 26, 2021, 11:00 AM @ https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mpJIp3S7Tla3GqLfYDT2OQ

    Local historian, author, and retired Silver City Museum Director Susan Berry will explore the town’s major eras and transition points in this abundantly illustrated lecture, which will trace the physical, social, and cultural changes that have led up to the Silver City of today. Nineteenth-century Southwest mining boom towns tended to have short life spans and followed a fairly predictable course. Silver City followed some of that storyline, but the foundation for an enduring future was laid within weeks of the town’s formation in 1870. Its visionary founders invested their new fortunes locally, developing a well-built town where women played an unusually active role. Silver City has proved resilient and has reinvented itself multiple times. Susan Berry gained perspective on southwest New Mexico history over a long career with the Silver City Museum. She also co-authored Built to Last: An Architectural History of Silver City and has contributed to many other publications.
