There are over 600 ghost towns in Colorado, which all came into being at the start of the 1859 Colorado gold/silver, and lived for a while until the silver market killed the incentive to take risks in 1893. These ghost towns are so very interesting to see! They contain stories of those who lived there, as well as some of the artifacts that reveal how these men lived their lives working their mining claims.
Our photography will enable you to see how these pioneers and intrepid explorers from the East lived when they came West to “strike it rich.” Photography from two Colorado Ghost towns, St. Elmo and Independence, will be presented.
