Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Animas Forks, Colorado

November 20, 2017Posted by Webmaster

 

The First Prospectors wintered in "Three Forks of the Animas" in 1873, looking for silver and gold. In 1875 the name was changed to Animas Forks to accommodate the Post Office. By 1885, the summer population reached 450 people. Few braved the harsh winters when most mining activity stopped. The town weathered the boom and bust cycles of the mining industry until the early 1920s when metal prices fell worldwide and it began its slow transformation into a ghost town." The Animas Forks Pioneer was the highest altitude newspaper ever printed. Today, Animas Forks is well preserved. Access is cutoff during the winter months and many buildings remain standing.
