Silverthorne received its name from Judge Marshal Silverthorn, who staked his gold mining claim in the valley in 1881. The "e" was added to the name in the 1930’s because it was considered fashionable and chic. Over 100 years later Silverthorne continues to be "the gateway to Summit County." Officially incorporated in the 1960's, Silverthorne has grown up with the Summit County tourist industry. Silverthorne's proximity to both summer and winter activities, where all four of Summit County's world-class ski resorts within 20 minutes, make the town an ideal place to visit and live. Silverthorne's 62,000 square foot recreation center offers plenty of indoor recreation for both residents and visitors alike. Silverthorne is best known for its shopping, which should not be missed. The Silverthorne Factory Stores, with over 70 brand name shops are widely known for exceptional value, quality, and variety.
