Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Chattanooga, Colorado

April 28, 2017Posted by Webmaster

 

Chattanooga is one of the most scenic locations in all over Colorado. For many years I simply viewed the scenery in awe without even realizing a town once existed here. Originally known as Sweetwater or Sweetville, the Chattanooga Post office was established in 1883 at the head of Mineral Creek. Originally, it served as a supply depot for people coming to the Red Mountain area. At its peak, its business district included grocery stores, bakeries, a drugstore, two butcher shops, three boarding houses, and three saloons. In 1888 the Silverton Railroad reached the Red Mountain District from the south, eliminating the need for a staging area from the north. In 1889 an avalanche roared through the town, destroying much of it. Most moved on. Today, the BLM maintains avalanche control by firing howitzer rounds into the snow up above to cause an avalanche under controlled conditions. Some structures, however, still remain.

Chattanooga was also sometimes called Sheridan Junction, due to the prominence of the Sheridan hotel.

UPDATE : I returned to this site and explored it extensively on 6/9/2014. (New Photos)
