History of the Wyman Buiding
In 1902, Louis Wyman, a businessman, built the Wyman Building on the
same site where his old freighting office had been. The red sand stone
for the masonry came from a quarry up South Mineral Creek. While the
stone masons were laying up the walls, he was cutting into two fine
slabs of stone the image of his beloved pack mules. The finished pieces
were set high on the facade of the building, where they remain to this
He planned his building to meet the needs of early-day Silverton. The
old-timers had laid out the town with streets running north & south,
east & west, true to the compass. Main Street running north & south,
seemed to divide the town in half. Both sides of Main Street were given
over to the business district, and as many of Silvertonís thirty-two
saloons as there was room for.
Since there were no buildings or halls where people could meet for
parties or dances, Wyman planned his building to take care of that need.
At that time Silverton was an isolated mining town and itís social life
was centered around lodges & clubs.
The top floor of his building was to take care of Silvertonís social
needs. A large part of the space was given over to a ballroom and lodge
hall, with an adjoining banquet room. Both halls were well furnished and
equipped with anterooms as well as a lounge for the ladies. For many
years the top floor was busy with some activity almost every night.
Also, upstairs were two three room office suites that faced Main Street.
These were usually occupied by dentistís and mining companies. Dr. Baily,
a dentist, had his office in the north suite for many years. He
straightened my front teeth in that upstairs corner room. He was
followed by Doctorís Morris, Finsilver, and Dr. Grouel.
Today, the Wyman Hotel & Inn is owned and operated by Rodger & Tana
Wrublik in the spirit of the old west. Itís furnishings are indicative
of the late 1800ís and early 1900ís. Louis Wyman Sr. Would be proud of
his building, despite the hard times it has survived, and is still
structurally sound. Like the town in which it has stood for more than
