  • I was born in Silver City 1948. I used to cross over the "arroyo" Big Ditch when I attended elementary school 1953-1957. It was on a very narrow steel bridge which I found scary but I had to do it. I also remember playing in the arroyo but I can't remember how we got down into it. Must have been a path somewhere. I still consider Silver City my home town with cherished memories of my family & friends.
  • Again while in Silver we walked along the creek. If you find a place with pictures of the big floods of the past you will learn why this is named the Big Ditch. That said just take a stroll along the creek in old down town Silver City. it is a wonderful, peaceful, shady, series of benches, stairs and walkways along the creek. With several bridges it is easily accessible from either side of the creek and is a nice escape, especially on a warm afternoon. Sometime it is a great place to read undisturbed. Sometimes it is the site of a roaring creek. Come on over and take a walk, it is always pleasing!
  • the history behind this is incredible a must see
