Silver Lake Institute Historic District is a national historic district located at Silver Lake in Wyoming County, New York. The district consists of 13 acres (5.3 ha) and is historically significant because of its association with the Silver Lake Institute, a Methodist affiliated camp facility established in 1873. The properties reflect the evolution of the institute from a Methodist Revivalist summer camp in the 1870s and 1880s to a cultural, educational, and religious summer institute in the Chautauqua tradition during the 1880s and 1890s, and finally to a secular summer cottage community in the early 20th century. The focal point of the community is the 2.03-acre (0.82 ha) Burt Park and the district includes 72 additional properties including 70 cottages.
