Central City, Colorado. Our house was up the hill from this church. VERY steep hill and really hard to get up there in the winter time.

When Did President Ulysses S. Grant Walk On Silver Bricks? When he visited Central City, Colorado. In 1873 Central City was in the middle of a gold and silver mining boom, known as the “richest square mile on earth.” The town fathers invited President Grant to pay them a visit. They wondered how they could impress their important visitor. They found their answer in silver bricks. When President Grant stepped out of the stagecoach, he stepped on to a sidewalk of bricks made of solid silver.
