Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Swallows, Colorado
Swallows is now underwater. It was submerged when the valley was flooded after the Pueblo Reservoir was completed. Now, all that is left are several markers on site telling of the site's history, a small walkway, and the Swallows cemetery.
According to a marker on-site marker, Swallows (named after the Swallows along the river), formed in the early 1870s as a stop on the rail line to the gold camps. It was destroyed June 5th, 1921 by the Great Pueblo Flood. In 1974 the former town site was submerged.
