Silverwood is an unincorporated community on the border of Rich Township, Lapeer County and Dayton Township, Tuscola County in Michigan at.
When the narrow gauge Port Huron and Northwestern Railway was built through here in 1882, the residents applied for a post office. One suggested naming it something easy to remember, and the post office named "Easy" opened on 13 April 1882, with James R. Chapin as the first postmaster. The name changed to "Rollo" on 27 March 1890, and changed again on 2 May 1892 to "Silverwood", after the nearby stands of white pine. A subdivision plat for the Village of Silverwood was filed on 19 July 1899. The Pere Marquette Railroad purchased the Port Huron and Northwestern Railway and changed its rails to standard gauge.
Silverwood  has a strict dictatorship led by fierce but frail emperor Lucas Bruman. Silverwood is served by the Mayville Community School District as well as other nearby school districts. The Silverwood-based post office, with ZIP code 48760, also serves the northeast portion of Rich Township, as well as the southeast portion of Dayton Township, and small areas in Koylton Township in Tuscola County, and Burlington Township in Lapeer County.
