Meetings

The Ghost Town Club of Colorado holds ten regular meetings each year, featuring speakers on a variety of topics related to ghost towns and their allied subjects, including preservation, and Colorado mining history. Meetings are in-person, though due to some recent technology upgrades, we are pleased to now offer a virtual option via Zoom.

Past meeting topics have included: “How to Find a Ghost Town”, “The Adventure, Danger and Romance of Colorado’s Railroads”, “Denver’s Great Mansions and the People Who Inhabited Them”, “Bonanza Victorian: The Architecture of Colorado Ghost Towns”, and “The Mining Camps Speak: A New Way to Explore the Ghost Towns of the American West”.

The Ghost Town Club of Colorado meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:30pm at the Grace United Methodist Church located at 4905 E. Yale Ave., Denver, CO (just west of I-25 on Yale). Parking is free along S. Eudora Street, and additional parking is also available in the church parking lot located on the north side of the building.
