Gothic, Colorado | Ghost Town


Live Gothic, Colorado

Gothic Colorado is a Ghost Town and only has a population of 4 people surrounded by the West Elk Mountains, secluded just north of “Colorado’s last great ski town”. Gothic was a mining town supported by the region’s silver mines. An 1879 explosion in the area spread strands of “wire-silver” into the fields, attracting prospectors. It peaked in the late 1800’s with about 1000 locals, and boasted its own U.S. Post Office between 1879 and 1896. Crested Butte borders Gothic. View the map of Gothic, Colorado below.
