SILVER FALLS. Silver Falls was a waterfall located where State Highway 82 crosses the White River east of Crosbyton in eastern Crosby County (at 33°40' N, 101°10' W). Because of heavy irrigation pumping of the groundwater, most of the springs which fed the falls are now dry. In 1872 and 1874 Ranald S. McKenzieqv camped near the falls during his campaigns against the Indians. The terrain surrounding the site is characterized by steeply to moderately sloping hills surfaced with shallow stony clay and sandy loams. The vegetation consists primarily of oak, mesquite, and grasses.
