This house is on the State & Federal Historic Registry & detailed historical background information is available. The town of Granite is accessible from Hwy 24 & was once a county seat, during the mining days. A lot of famous characters passed through or lived there, including Doc Holliday. There’s still an old stage coach trail that leads into Granite, as well as many other reminders scattered around this area, showing glimpses of the hard lives that these early westerners lived. The original cemetery is nearby, with lots of notable markers. There are very few permanent residents in this town, so you could almost have an entire “ghost town” to yourself.
