The Masonic Cemetery of Silver City is an active cemetery located across the street from the Catholic Cemetery at the south end of Silver City.  Silver City was originally known as San Vicente de La Cienaga when it was founded in 1870. Years later the name was changed to Silver City because of the mining boom. Before the AT&SF Railroad came to Silver City, twelve and fourteen-horse teams hauled ore and bullion into the city. Bricks of gold and silver were stacked on sidewalks outside shipping offices. Today it is a major center of the ranching industry, and it is the site of New Mexico State Teachers College.
