Forgotten Colorado: Northern Region

Author(s): Heath A. Gay
Northern Colorado is a unique area of the state, encompassing both the massive Rocky Mountains and the arid Great Plains regions. With its diverse landscapes and resources, Northern Colorado has provided a playground and a way of life for centuries.

This third installment of the Forgotten Colorado series will focus on historic, unique, abandoned, and must-see places throughout Northern Colorado.

You will be exposed to twenty distinct areas, and more than forty-five different sites that provide a glimpse into what life was like back in the day, and in some cases, how life continues today.

Forgotten Colorado: Northern Region highlights the ghost town associated with James A. Michener's landmark novel Centennial; how to find the exact location where Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming meet; the DuPont Company’s model town designed to attract dynamite workers; the “Masonville Monster”; historic sites within Rocky Mountain National Park; a town made famous for its Rocky Mountain Oysters; numerous gems along the international CanAm Highway; and so much more.

Get ready to see a side of Colorado you’ve never seen before!
