Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Anaconda, Colorado

November 27, 2014Posted by Webmaster

 

Anaconda and Mound City were located near one another. Anaconda was closer to the rails of the Florence and Cripple Creek Railroad, the grade now used by Colorado 67. Mound City was to the southwest, near the entrance to what is now Shelf Road. Most of what was Anaconda is below Colorado 67.

The town was laid out in 1892 under the name Barry by brothers Vinton and Bill Barry. The town of Barry absorbed an earlier town called Squaw Gulch. The town was renamed Anaconda because of the nearby Anaconda Mine. The post office remained open on and off until 1917. The town had three rail lines, including an electric trolley.

Anaconda was destroyed by fire in 1904 and was not rebuilt. Residents either moved to Victor or Cripple Creek. What remains today are formaer mine support buildings the Anaconda or Mary McKinney mines.
