Chivington Colorado Townsite - Ghost town

Photos courtesy of Mike Sinnwell September 2009

Once a booming railroad town. Now a skeleton of the past. Close to the Sand Creek Massacre site. Establish in 1887. Some say a roundhouse once stood proudly in Chivington.

A viewer writes -- Tuesday, January 07, 2014 -- I love all these pictures. I was sort of surprised, to see the town of Chivington Colorado. I went through there, on my way out to see the Sand Creek Massacre. It's good to see prairie town sites as well. I got to know Perry Eberhart back in the early 80's.And we would send letters back and forth talking about Ghost Towns. Anyway, like your site very much, and for sharing pictures some people might not ever get to see. Excellent. Mike P.Colorado Springs...........
