New Community Hub for Silverton, OR

Title Insurance with AmeriTitle


The historic building is an absolute beauty at the corner of Main and Water in downtown Silverton, OR. Meticulously restored by Moe Salem, this early 1900’s building has been waiting for the perfect business to move in, and last night on a balmy August - First Friday, our community got the first peek at Howard Hinsdale Cellars’ new location for their wine bar and bistro. 

To have an opening on one of Silverton’s busiest nights of the year was a test of endurance, I’m sure. Our town is nearly bursting at the seams with a Summer First Friday, a slew of class reunions, and the Homer Davenport Festival, but they made it happen and welcomed us in.

Walking down the sidewalk, our group is sucked in by all of the life, and light, and sound pouring out the doors of this space that has been vacant for too long. Nick is playing guitar in the corner and sings “Benny and the Jets” to greet my husband, Ben as we walk in the door. And we smile, because this is home.

I hug a friend, a cousin, a client and I feel grateful for this space. I feel even more grateful for the space when I find my way to the beautiful deck, overlooking Silver Creek, with a glass of Zerba in hand.

Much gratitude to Howard, Connie, Kevin, and their crew for all the hard work and for creating what will surely become an important community hub for our townspeople and visitors.

Great hyperlocal story, Rosi... I'm loving it to see another wave of new businesses taking over old spaces around here that were empty for quite awhile because of the recession. I love all kinds of architechture, but I'm fond of the old turn of the century buildings around here. Kudo's to Howard, Connie, Kevin, and crew. What a neat location for a wine bar and bistro.

Thanks for reading Rene! We look forward to building many happy memories here... It is so nice to have a business in this space that allows the community to share it.

BTW - come on out to Silverton anytime and I'll buy you a glass of wine.  We'll sit on the deck.
