Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Old Hundred Mine, Colorado

May 28, 2017Posted by Webmaster

 
On Galena Mountain, the history of the Old Hundred is explained in guided tours. I do not as of yet have specific dates handy, but at one time there was a tram system which would carry men and supplies up the mountain from the location the tour starts to one of two upper levels. I've seen pictures from the top level and the views are amazing. From the top, Silverton can be seen in the distance. Another tram system went to the south down Cunningham Gulch to the Highland Mary mine. Ore was processed at the mill below the lower Old Hundred portal. I have moved the Mayflower mill to the museum category under articles, but this stays here because it was actually the site in which many men lived throughout the year.
