Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Goldfield, Colorado

August 21, 2019Posted by Webmaster

 
Goldfield was founded in 1895 by the owners of the Portland mine, although not incorporated until 1899. Whereas other towns nearby (such as Independence and Altman) were never more than mining encampments, Goldfield had a business district, electric plant, and at one time had a population of 2500. In the early 1920s, the population had dropped below 35. Now it is occupied year round and has many historic structures still remaining, although it is a ghost of its former self.


Although Goldfield contains many newer buildings, it still has many era structures remaining.
