The Village of Silver Creek was platted by the Union Pacific Railroad Company in November 1866. Among the earliest settlers in and around Silver Creek were the Shaw Brothers, Mr. Lathrop, J. & Ed Howland, and James Brown. The railroad built a section house along the railroad route for their purpose and use. The first building built after the section house was the Lee House Hotel, built by Cyrus Lee. Thomas Lee then built a dwelling house, and building has not stopped since.
