Eagle Mine Colorado
 
11:54
Eagle Mine was a Colorado silver mine founded in the 1880s which went on to become the the largest producer of Silver in Colorado. It shut down in the 1980s. The closure of the mine resulted in its eventual flooding, which in turn contaminated the groundwater and prompted the EPA to step in and order the evacuation of the nearby town. In this video we explore some of the remaining surface structures. NOTE: I apologize for the quality of this video. We hiked down the side of the cliff and ran out of water along the way. I was exhausted and the lens got dirty in the process. I've identified some changes I'll be implementing in upcoming videos regarding sound and video quality. Stay tuned.

Georgetown, Colorado
 
05:09
Recorded July 12, 2014 My sister and I made a short visit to Georgetown for lunch after finishing our trip to the top of Mount Evans. The historic town of Georgetown is a former silver mining camp along Clear Creek in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The town has a population of just over 1000 people. The town sits at an elevation of 8,530 feet and is nestled in the mountains near the upper end of the valley of Clear Creek in the mountains west of Denver along Interstate 70. Although a small town today, the town was a historic center of the mining industry in Colorado during the late 19th century, earning the nickname the "Silver Queen of Colorado". It has evolved into a lively historical summer tourist center today with many preserved structures from the heyday of the Colorado Silver Boom. From: http://timvp.com

"Granite Ghost Town" An  ABANDONED Silver Mining Town in Montana, USA.
 
03:25
"Granite Ghost Town" An ABANDONED Silver Mining Town in Montana, USA by American Ghost Towns. Granite is a ghost town in Granite County, Montana, United States, three miles east of the town of Philipsburg. Granite thrived as a silver mining town in the 1890s and is now completely deserted.The state of Montana maintains the mine superintendent's house and the ruins of the union hall as Granite Ghost Town State Park. In 1872, Eli Holland found a small quantity of high quality ruby silver in the area. A shallow shaft was dug, but later abandoned until 1877, when Charles McLure discovered some silver ore in the shaft. He later traveled to St. Louis to obtain the capital necessary to begin development of the mine. Granite eventually grew to a town with more than 3,000 inhabitants. For the time period, there were many modern amenities, such as the large Miners Union Hall, a library, 18 saloons, brothels, a hospital and school as well as churches. The Sherman Silver Purchase Act was repealed in 1893, drastically lowering the price of silver, and many residents left Granite, leaving only 140 residents a year later. Granite is currently entirely uninhabited. For a better Experience turn on Subtitles and translations.

St. Elmo Colorado - A True Old West Ghost Town - Abandoned America
 
14:39
See Photos from our 2017 St. Elmo Visit Here: https://derelictdoug.weebly.com/derelict-doug-blog/a-true-old-west-ghost-town-st-elmo-colorado-abandoned-america St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

Ghost Town Museum delights young and old with lots of hands on activities, including old time arcades, panning for real gold (summer months), and much, much, more. - See More at http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColoradoTV Ghost Town History Ghost Town Museum was created in 1954 to preserve a piece of Colorado's Wild West heritage. In 1858 the cry "Pikes Peak or Bust" opened up the heartland of the Colorado territory to the gold prospector. Gold mining became a significant factor that led to the statehood of Colorado. The miners and the people who provided services to them quickly populated the western frontier of the United States. They needed transportation, and before long the twin steel ribbons of the railroads were pushing into the mountains to transport ore for processing. 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. Little by little the raw spirit of the frontier died down. By the time gold was discovered in Cripple Creek in 1891, the "frontier" was almost gone. Today almost nothing remains of those exciting days of the old west. A scattered pile of old lumber, a tumbled pile of rocks marking an old mine, an occasional wagon wheel or a piece of equipment. The rip roaring camps of 100 years ago have become ghost towns now only a memory of a bygone era.

"Ashcroft GHOST TOWN" An Historical Mining Town in Aspen, Colorado USA by American Ghost Towns. Ashcroft, originally known as Castle Forks City then Chloride until 1882, was a mining town located ten miles (16 km) south of Aspen, Colorado, United States. A few buildings remain standing as a testament to the town's past. In the spring of 1880 two prospectors, Charles B. Culver and W.F. Coxhead left the mining boomtown of Leadville in search of silver deposits in the Castle Creek Valley. Silver was found and Coxhead promoted their discovery with zeal back in Leadville. When he returned to "Castle Forks City," as it had been dubbed, he found that 23 other prospectors had joined. By 1885 the town was home to about 3,500 people, had six hotels and 20 saloons. As quickly as the town went boom it went bust. The town's last resident, Jack Leahy, died in 1939, making Ashcroft an official ghost town. For a better Experience turn on Subtitles and translations.

Today, with inflation, that dollar amount would be worth $3,625 to $28,998 per ton, a truly remarkable mine. Surveyors noted beautiful ores inside the mine with over 1900 feet of workings.

The Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic District is a federally designated United States National Historic Landmark that comprises the Town of Georgetown, the Town of Silver Plume, and the Georgetown Loop Historic Mining & Railroad Park between the two silver mining towns along Clear Creek in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Clear Creek County, Colorado, United States. The district includes well preserved examples of the buildings and mining structures of the Colorado Silver Boom from 1864 to 1893. The Georgetown Loop Historic Mining & Railroad Park includes the reconstructed Georgetown Loop, a spectacular example of 19th century narrow gauge railway engineering required to negotiate the 601 feet (183 meters) of elevation rise in the mere 2.0 miles (3.2 kilometers) between the two towns. Historic steam locomotives pull passenger trains over the loop from late May through the beautiful Autumn colors of early October. Guided tours of the Lebanon Silver Mine are also available. The district was designated a National Historic Landmark on 1966-

The Elkhorn is likely one of the most productive, but undervalued abandoned mines in all of the western states. The old gold and silver mine is documented to have over 14 miles of drifting and workings on at least 3 well defined levels. It is one of the largest gold mines ever to be seen in Montana and still contains billions of dollars in reserves of gold, silver and copper.

St Elmo Historic District (Ghost Town)
 
08:57
St. Elmo is a ghost town in Chaffee County, Colorado, United States. Founded in 1880, St. Elmo lies in the heart of the Sawatch Range, 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Buena Vista and sits at an elevation of 9,961 feet (3,036 m). Nearly 2,000 people settled in this town when mining for gold and silver started. The mining industry started to decline in the early 1920s, and in 1922 the railroad discontinued service. The community is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the St. Elmo Historic District. It is one of Colorado's best preserved ghost towns. St. Elmo was originally named Forest City but was later changed because of the multitude of towns with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was reading a novel with the same title. The town was at its peak in the 1890s, when it included a telegraph office, general store, town hall, 5 hotels, saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a school house. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo. There were 150 patented mine claims within the area. The majority of the people who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the largest and most successful mine in the area. The Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold while it was in operation. While the other mines eventually shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the railroad was abandoned in 1922. Once the mining industry shut down, St. Elmo drastically declined in population. Miners searched elsewhere for gold and silver and the business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. Even though St. Elmo is considered a ghost town it is still inhabited. Tourism brings many people to the St. Elmo area every year. The old mining roads are now used as Jeep and four-wheeler trails. There are also many good places to fish along Chalk Creek, which runs through St. Elmo. The general store is open during the summer, when tourists can rent four-wheelers or buy items. Many of the buildings are still intact. However, the town hall and a few other buildings burnt down in 2002. Buena Vista Heritage is rebuilding the town hall to its original state.

Haunting History of : Creede, Mineral County, Colorado, United States
 
01:46
Tom Boggs, a brother-in-law of Kit Carson, farmed at Wagon Wheel Gap in the summer of 1840. The first silver discovery was made at the Alpha mine in 1869, but the silver could not be extracted at a profit from the complex ores. Ranchers and homesteaders moved in when stagecoach stations (linking the mining operations over the Divide with the east) were built in the 1870s, but the great “Boom Days” started with the discovery of rich minerals in Willow Creek Canyon in 1889. Built to service the last Colorado silver boom town in the 1800s, the Creede Hotel & Restaurant is believed to be haunted by some of its former boarders: miners or perhaps some of its more famous guests, which include Calamity Jane and Bob Ford, the killer of Jesse James, con-artist Soapy Smith,and Poker Alice Tubbs Virtually no one lived in Creede in the late 1880s, but by 1892, the silver mining boom brought the population close to 10,000. Creede was a rowdy mining camp town. As the song goes, "It's day all day in the daytime, and there is no night in Creede." Known for her wild tales, Calamity Jane (Martha Jane Canary) also played cards like a pro, wore only men’s clothing, and had the reputation of out-drinking any man at the bar. She lived in Creede for a time, playing poker at local saloons. Fires ravaged Creede twice around the turn of the century, both times sparing Zang’s Hotel. There were nearly a hundred "hotels" at the time, and the Creede Hotel, which was then Zang's Hotel (after its owner), was considered one of the town's finest. No building in Creede was ever grand or elaborate, and the Hotel was no exception—the town grew so fast that buildings were thrown up as quickly as possible, the Hotel included. The five rooms upstairs, and at least that many more downstairs, housed miners and businessmen. Some suspect that a few of the old boarders may still be around. On numerous occasions, guests have heard or seen strange things in the night. ........................................................................................................................ By Kym-n-Mark Todd Most who’ve worked at The Creede Hotel have a ghost story to tell. Leslie Heller, hotel manager for a decade, finds the pictures running the length of hall next to the bar askew every morning. She also feels an invisible presence on a regular basis. Only a few days before we interviewed her, she heard a whistled tune coming from the bar, which was empty. She didn’t recognize the song, and when she whistled for us the few bars she could remember, we didn’t either. She often sees movement out of the corner of her eye in the morning before other staffers arrive. That may well be: The former manager saw an apparition of a woman approach the front desk in the restaurant and carried on a brief conversation with the manager before the figure disappeared before his eyes. One evening, a restaurant waitperson headed toward the kitchen with trays full of dishes, wondering how she would manage the door. She needn’t have worried. An unseen hand opened the door for her and closed it politely behind. During the summer of 2014, an intern staffer from Europe captured with a camera the image of a Victorian-dressed woman in the antique mirror in the Western Room. The photo revealed a figure with a rather long neck twisted awkwardly to the side in a pose resembling someone dangling from a hangman’s noose. writeinthethick.blogspot.com/ ................................................................................................................ Right next door to the Creede Hotel is Creede Repertory Theatre Staff working late hours at the old theatre claim to have disembodied footsteps on the third floor of the building, while other claim to have encountered an eerie presence. The Firemen's Inn This historic bed and breakfast inn is rumoured to be haunted by a ghostly man in old-fashioned clothing, who has been seen and heard on the stairs.
