Red Mountain Town Colorado - Abandoned Ghost Town

submitted by DerelictDoug on 11/09/19 1

Red Mountain Town is a bit of an enigma and is a hard Ghost Town to identify. The final resting place of Red Mountain Town is equal distance between Oury and Silverton Colorado off of U.S. Highway 550. However; the Abandoned town was moved once and burnt twice. Meaning you can find a few versions of Red Mountain Town. The Denver Times described the town by saying “Red Mountain was the mecca for all who were allured into the San Juan by the fickle goddess of fortune.” The original town was settled in 1879 when a group of silver deposits were found nearby. At that time it was a small mining camp and went by the name of Sky City. The camp was below the National Belle Mine; however, it would later be relocated. This is because the residents of Sky City first built their camp in wintertime when the ground was frozen solid. Once spring came around the townsite became swampy, fly-infested, and messy. ↓See Extended Content and Read More Here↓ www.derelictdoug.net/derelict-doug-blog/red-mountain-town-colorado Timestamps: 1:18 - Red Mountain Town History 5:23 - Strange Equipment Left Behind 7:41 - How it Became Abandoned 10:41 - How to say "Ouray" 11:52 - What the Clean Up Looks Like Today Keep Up-To-Date with Me Here: derelictdoug.net Or Follow Me Here: www.instagram.com/derelictdoug twitter.com/Derlict_doug
