Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Starkville, Colorado
Starkville today is now no longer a ghost town. It seems to be more likely a suburb of Trinidad, now. But as a former CF&I town, its population has dwindled in the past.
Starting as San Pedro in 1865, Starkville was renamed for a landowner, Albert G Stark. A post office opened in 1879, and by 1900 had a population of more than 3,000. The mines closed in 1922, but because of its location, it continued to survive. The population today is far less than its peak.
