St. Elmo Ghost Town and Winfield, Vicksburg and Turret Ghost Towns

A trip out West is not complete without an outing to one of the region's ghost towns. St. Elmo, southwest of Buena Vista, is the best-known ghost town in the region but Turret, Winfield and Vicksburg are worth noting. On roads through the backcountry, you may also find relics of old towns that no longer exist on present-day maps, monuments to boom and bust mining cycles of the past 120 years. Virtually all the old buildings are privately owned. Please leave the buildings as you found them.
