Silverthorne Real Estate
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 1930s because it was considered fashionable and chic. Over 100 years later, Silverthorne continues to be "the gateway to Summit County," as it is less than an hour's drive to Denver. Four of Summit County's world-class ski resorts are within 20 minutes, making the town an ideal place to visit and live.
