Village of Silver Creek


The next Village board meeting will be held on December 4th at 7:00 pm.

The Village of Silver Creek is located on the shores of Lake Erie, within the Town of Hanover, Chautauqua County, New York, in an area of Western New York known as the Concord Grape Belt.

State Route 5 (Central Avenue – West, Howard Street) and State Route 20 (Main St, Central Avenue – East) intersect downtown in our business district, where you will also find our village square and historic bandstand.  Walnut Creek and Silver Creek both flow through the village before joining together, to the north of the Municipal Building, and flowing into Lake Erie.

The Village provides many valuable resources for its residents, including a Volunteer Emergency Squad and Fire Department, a Department of Public Works, and Water & Sewer Department.

There are several churches within the village, including the First United Church, Our Lady of Mt Carmel Catholic Church, St Alban’s Episcopal Church, Trinity Lutheran Church, Zion Lutheran Church, First Baptist Church, Assembly of God and the Christ Chapel Wesleyan Church.

The Silver Creek Central School District consists of an Elementary, Middle and High School building, which provides education for children residing not only in the Village of Silver Creek, but the Town of Hanover, Town of Sheridan, and the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation as well.

According to the 2010 census, the Village of Silver Creek had a population of 2,699 people.
