Oro City Colorado Townsite - Ghost town

Not much left in this area except foundations , holes in the ground, heaps of gravel and evidence that people lived here at one time. Almost impossible to visualize a camp of about 10,000 once worked the area. The average prospector was making about $19 a day at a time when gold was selling for $18 an ounce.

I have heard that the original Oro City became part of Leadville and Oro City moved 2 to 3 miles up California Gulch.  These photos are of the Second Oro City.
