Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Henson, Colorado
Henson was located on Henson Creek west of Lake City. In 1877 a toll road was completed over Engineer pass between Lake City and Silverton and Ouray. The town had a post office in 1883, but only for one year. Many buildings can still be seen standing from the road without trespassing. The only photograph I currently have is of the mill sitting below the road.
Like so many mining camps in Colorado's history, Henson was the location of a miner's strike. However, it was settled without Bloodshed even after the Governor ordered State Militia to the area.
