Boom Town to Ghost Town:
The Story of Fulford
by Richard Perske
Gold was the reason this small mining boom camp sprang up in the rugged mountains southeast of Eagle, Colorado in 1893. The excitement of the mining spurred a fascination with this now ghost town community that continues to this day. Perske sorts out the fact from the fiction, presenting the true story of Fulford.
