Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Morley, Colorado
Morley was a railroad station established in 1878 for the ATSF railway. At one time, it had a population of 60 railroad workers. A post office opened in 1882 but closed the same year. It opened again in 1884 and closed in 1885, and opened for a third time in 1888, closing in 1956. Mines were opened by the CF&I in 1907 and were worked until 1929. At its peak in 1928, 500 miners were employed. Morley had more than 100 homes and many businesses.
Today, the area can be viewed either from a side road or from a pullout area on I-25 south. Many foundations remain, but only the ruins of the St Aloysius Catholic Church remain.
