Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Siloam, Colorado

December 18, 2018Posted by Webmaster

 

Nothing is left at Siloam. Even the foundations have all but vanished. A few remain, and some mounds of Earth have sunk in, as to indicated foundation locations from the past. It is a windy place. Out in the open, there is a good view of Pike's peak, yet none live here today.

A marker on site explains : Once a ranching community of nearly 100 families, little remains. A schoolhouse was opened in 1891, a post office, and a general store. Irrigation ditches brought water here until the 1930s drought. In 1943 the post office closed, and in 1950 the schoolhouse was consolidated.

The site is at an intersection, so homes would have existed on all quadrants. The northwest side is nothing more than a field now. At one time, many people lived here.
