Ashcraft boomed in the mid-1800s thanks to the discovery of a large silver deposit that busted as quickly as it boomed. Once a small town of about 2,000 people, Ashcraft was larger than Aspen at the time and closer to the railroad in Crested Butte.
Now, it sits as a relic of times long gone past allowing visitors to take. To get to Ashcraft Ghost Town from Native Roots Aspen, use Highway CO-82 to get to Castle Creek Road and head south for half an hour, and watch for signs to Ashcraft Ghost Town.
Before miners and prospectors filled the Roaring Fork Valley, this area was home to the indigenous Ute people. By 1879, large silver deposits were discovered sparking a mining boom that sprouted the first roots of a settlement to become known as Aspen.
Although Aspen produced about 17% of America’s and 6% of the world’s silver from 1879 to 1893, like many other Coloradan settlements, Aspen suffered a tragic post-mining decline.
Aspen continued a slow decline for nearly 50 years. Although they gained more telephone wires and a highway, they lost their railroad companies and most other major businesses and industries that had moved into the town.
In the 1950s, a surge of high-altitude and fresh-air wellness health protocols brought an affluent entrepreneurial couple from Chicago, Walter Paepcke and his wife, Elizabeth, to Aspen. They sold Aspen to the world as a retreat for wellness for mind, body, and spirit, drawing in other affluent individuals seeking healing.
The influx of affluent wellness seekers and the hosting of the first FIS World Alpine Championships in 1950 catapulted Aspen into the eyes of professional skiers. It wasn’t until the 1960s and 1970s though that the skiing industry brought Aspen fully back to life.
