Ghost Town Wild West Museum

Ghost Town Wild West Museum

During the Colorado Gold Rush of the 1860s & 70s, towns sprang up overnight and blanketed the west. If gold or silver were not located, or if the mines played out, the towns were often abandoned to become ghost towns.

In the Ghost Town Museum, you can explore the boardwalk connecting the Blacksmith's shop, Saloon, General and Merchants of main street, with the Livery Stable, and Victorian Home. Each is filled with thousands of fascinating artifacts.

We hope you enjoy our work.
