The Road to Gothic

Tucked into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, near Crested Butte, is the ghost town of Gothic.

Once a boom town, Gothic has faded like many early mining communities. The town grew to more than 1,000 residents and was a major supply point for mining camps until 1893. After the Silver Crash, also known as the Denver Depression, which happened that year, it was mostly deserted.

This oil painting was done on location from a promontory overlooking the road to Gothic.
