Product Details
Discovering the ruins of a town that once bustled with mining activity is, literally, a step back into time 100 years or more. The reality of leaving a “busted” town without even taking time to close the door is nowhere more apparent than at St. Elmo. Plagued by weathering and souvenir hunters, preservation groups like the ones at Ashcroft have organized restorations of their towns to stabilize the remaining buildings. So although it’s tempting to take home a window frame or rusted tool from an unsupervised setting, Please Don’t Pick the Artifacts!

Some of the “ghost” towns selected for this booklet never actually died. They may have come close when the mines played out, but tourism, skiing, or other mining activity came along to bolster the economy. Cripple Creek, Breckenridge, and Telluride are good examples. Many existing mining towns have their own historical societies. Resort or Commerce Chambers can usually supply phone numbers and addresses of these preservation groups. Colorado Ghost towns – American Traveler is an excellent reference for the glove box of any vehicle driven by a ghost town enthusiast in Colorado. Complete with a map of the region covered, with locations identified.
