A 33-room colonial revival mansion originally built in 1917 by the Silversteen family. The mansion fell into disrepair in the late 1970’s, and was slated for demolition in 1981. Local Brevard citizens were strongly opposed to this action and formed their own citizen group which saved the mansion, and raised money for its renovation and revival. This same group also initiated its placement on the National Register of Historic Places.
These days, Silvermont and its surrounding 8 acres serve as a county park with nature trails, tennis courts, and playgrounds. Inside, visitors can enjoy the 2nd floor museum reflecting the era of the Silversteens. On the first floor, a range of classes and activities are offered for locals and visitors to enjoy.
