Tungsten Colorado Town Site Ghost Town

Photos Mike Sinnwell 2003

The first World War brought a boom to Tungsten. The demand was high and the town exploded with miners, merchants, swindlers and other scallywags. When the price got too high the Town went bust. Would you believe a Tungsten Camp with its alleged population of 20,000. Tungsten was also known as Steven’s Camp and Ferberite. Today, however, most of Tungsten lies underneath Barker Reservoir.
