Random Colorado Location #8 Silver Springs

ss2w

Silver Springs is across the road from Pine Junction on US 285 west of Conifer.  Its a small mountain town that was difficult to find out anything about.  While looking around I ran into a local and asked them if they knew where Silver Springs was.  Turns out I was standing in it.  Apparently it was a stagecoach stop about a days ride from the rail line.  Today the area is mostly made up of new houses and what is now Pine Junction.

There was really only one old building that still looked old.  Many of the original buildings have been remodeled and modernized.  This house was believed to have been an Inn and Brothel at points in its 100 year plus history.
