Here’s an authentic “ghost town” that likely escapes the attention of most tourists. Shavano, Colorado is located northwest of Maysville alongside a Forest Service road. Other than a small wood sign, there are no ‘attractions’ at Shavano and I would guess most backcountry drivers pass by without noticing. At the town site are the remains of several cabins, scattered artifacts, and some small depressions. Three hundred people once lived here.
