Ghost Towns

Chloride

An Englishman named Harry Pye, a mule skinner and prospector, was delivering freight for the U.S. Army from Hillsboro to Camp Ojo Caliente in 1879 when he discovered silver in the canyon where Chloride is now located. After completing his freighting contract, he and two others returned to the area in 1881 and staked a claim. A tent city grew up nearby and then a town, originally called Pyetown, then Bromide.

Just a note to thank you and your staff for the great job you all did in hosting our Three Crosses Travelers meeting last weekend.  We've been in the group for six years now and I can say, without hesitation, that you all were by far the best campground hosts that I have seen.  Pl
