Commodore Ore House
Creede, Colorado is a small community that, as of the 2010 US Census, had a population of 290. This a far cry from the 1890s, when the town's population peaked at over 10,000. Creede used to be a major mining center, and while some mining is still done in the area, it exists today as much as a tourist destination as anything else. The Commodore Mine was one of many mines just north of Creede, and the Commodore Ore House, seen here, has been maintained to this day, as a relic of a bygone era.
