Ironton - Colorado Ghost Town


The most prominent structure in Ironton

The road that led us there.

The structure pictured above, from the opposite side.

With the mountains in the background.


Looking outside.

More unidentified structures of Ironton.

One of the best preserved houses.

From the entrance.

There was still wallpaper on the walls, and patterns on the floors.

Three wasp nests hanging from the ceiling.
We also saw a huge rat in the wall of this room.

An outer building with several distinct sections.
One was an outhouse.

That's the one.

A very solid looking log cabin style house
behind the ruins of a structure in the foreground.


E. O. Milton Larson was the last person who lived in Ironton Colorado. This interesting and amusing episode of "I've Got a Secret," from the early 1960's features Mr. Larson.
