It's not really much of a ghost town, since a lot of the surrounding area is now housing developments, but there's a couple of old ruins here from this once booming town.
Silver Reef was discovered around 1866 when a man named William T Barbee found silver in the sandstone - an amazingly rare occurance.
In 1876 Silver Reef became an established town, main street was over a mile long with over 2,000 people living here. There were hotels, 9 stores, 6 saloons, a bank, several restaurant, a hospital, 2 dance halls, 2 news papers, a china town and 3 cemeteries. And apparently it was a pretty wretched hive of scum and villiany.
The old Wells Fargo Express office is on the National Historical Register and is now a museum, the old bank is now a gift shop and some of the surrounding area has been preserved.
