Ghost Town and Wild West Museum



Ghost Town Museum was created 50 years ago (1954) to preserve a piece of Colorado’s Wild West heritage. Towns sprang up overnight and by the 1860’s and 1870’s people had blanketed the west. It was a rough and tumble time. Small encampments became small towns. Small cities along the rocky mountain Front Range provided a central location for supplies and services. The search for gold drove prospectors to every mountain valley, and every mountain peak. If gold or silver were not located, or if the mines played out, the towns were often abandoned to become ghost towns.
