Silverdale is a small unincorporated community in Cowley County, Kansas, United States. The post office was established June 5, 1871, and temporarily closed October 19, 1883 before being reopened December 12, 1883. It was permanently closed on July 31, 1964.

At one time the town had a hotel, general store, bank, and other businesses supporting a population of over 100 people. Today only a church and limestone quarry remain with perhaps a dozen residences. The quarry specialized in fine cut, quality limestone that fetches $300 and more per ton.
