“My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You
Colorado Ghost Town
Ashcroft was once home to two newspapers, 20 saloons, a school and many homes. The silver mining ghost town features the remains of several of these historic buildings. Interpretive signage tells the stories of the former boom town at the headwaters of Castle Creek. Originally known as Castle Forks City, then Chloride, until 1882, Ashcroft was a mining town located ten miles south of Aspen, Colorado.
