The Silverton Block Watch Association helped restore the Silverton Train Station, preserving artifacts and photographs from Silverton’s history. The museum is open seasonally to visitors and staffed by members from the Silverton Block Watch Association.
The current train station, located in Silverton Park, was built in 1976 as a replica of the original train station. It houses historic photographs and artifacts from the City’s past. In 2001 the station was rededicated as the John M. Kuhnell Memorial Museum in honor of the man who served Silverton as Chief of Police from 1946 to 1969. Chief Kuhnell was instrumental in the reconstruction of the Silverton Station.
The Citizen Police Academy allows citizens to learn first hand about the roles and responsibilities of a police officer. The class meets once per week for 3 hours at the Deer Park/Silverton Fire Department’s training room and other nearby facilities. Registrants must be a village resident, business owner, or business employee.
