Explore a silver mining ghost town


The Experience

In 1883, the silver mining town of Ashcroft was bigger than Aspen, with a population of 2,000, two newspapers, a school, sawmills, a small smelter and 20 saloons. But as quickly as it boomed, Ashcroft went bust. Ashcroft only had $5.60 left in its town coffers two years after the height of its boom. Explore the vestiges of this eerie ghost town, from the remains of a saloon to a post office. Expert-guided tours are available through the Aspen Historical Society.
