Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Calcite, Colorado

October 15, 2019Posted by Webmaster

 

Calcite is divided into three areas : A lower, middle, and upper camp. The lower and middle camps are on private property and fenced. The fence at the upper camp has been removed and there is even an outhouse in the overgrown forest. Many structures remain at the upper camp.

Calcite was formed as Howard's Quarry in 1904 as a quarry town owned by the CF&I for quarrying limestone. It was abandoned in 1930. The railroad grade follows CR4 and snakes back and forth as it approaches the site.
