Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Little Theresa Mine, Colorado

December 15, 2019Posted by Webmaster

 
The little Theresa was operated from 1895 to as late as 1961 by several companies, including the Theresa Gold Mining Company, the Vindicator Consolidated, the United Gold Mines Company, and the Golden Cycle Mining Company. It was operated on and off during this period. The entire surface plant was destroyed by fire in 1934, replaced with what you see today. The closing of the Carlton Mill in 1961 led to the final closing of the mine.

Inside the change house. Note the sitting bench. The room in the distance looked to be a food prep area. (Stove, cabinets, etc.)
