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.
Before Eagle County became known for its world-class ski resorts and high-end real estate, the county had a colorful history of nomadic Utes, adventurous mountain men, optimistic miners, and hard-working homesteaders. The Eagle County Historical Society works to preserve and share the county’s rich history. Knowing and understanding the people and forces that shaped the past makes us a better community today.
