Farnham Spur Colorado Townsite - Ghost town

Photos courtesy of Mike Sinnwell September 2006

Not much left when you get here. You can still see the depressions from many cabins, some foundations, lots of timbers but not much else. Apparently this was a rail spur on the rail road from Como to Breckenridge during the gold rush days. Some folks say there was a mill here and numerous mines in the area would bring the ore to this area for shipment. Small town with a post office that lasted only four years.

Most people drive right past this place without ever noticing. I can't blame them as it is on one of the most popular Aspen viewing roads in Colorado.
