Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Brookside, Colorado

January 20, 2019Posted by Webmaster

 
Brookside was located at a small area at the mouth of a canyon. Coal was found in small quanitities in 1873, but the town wasn't incorporated until 1912. During a 1914 strike, the Brookside Mine filled with water and could not be reopened. Another mine was opened to replace the flooded one. Brookside now is more like a suburb of Canon City. Several era buildings still remain, as well as some mine foundations, but new housing from Canon City has changed this area.

Coal tailing piles have long since started to cover with sand and no longer look like coal. This area is very windy.
