In the classic fashion of a gold boom town, Central City, Colorado got its auspicious start when a miner stumbled upon what would become known as the "Gregory Lode" in a nearby mountain gulch. The miners who descended on the area - and their newfound fortunes - created the "Richest Square Mile on Earth" and became the economic driver of a brand new city in the mountains west of Denver.
When the proverbial "gold dust" had settled more than a decade later, Central City still boasted a stable population, with city leaders who used thoughtful planning to rebuild its business district after a series of fires wiped out large sections of the town. More than a century later, many of those newer stone and brick buildings still stand as a monument to an important part of American history.
Today, the business of gold and silver mining has given way to tourism and gaming in this quaint mountain village. This assemblage of historic buildings lies along Spring Street and features historic structures such as the "fireproof" Seavy Building and brick structure that housed the local newspaper.
This 6.8+/- acre assemblage has 49,176+/- sf of limited stakes zoning, per the seller. Contiguous buildings and lots are completely contained in the area, one of the few in the state of Colorado that allows low-stakes wagering operations. This is a true opportunity for a modern day entrepreneur seeking redevelopment opportunities in an established, destination community.
