Search Crested Butte Colorado

Crested Butte was originally a mining camp, which attracted the likes of Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy. Today, the community draws skiers and bikers from all over the world.

Crested Butte's downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Elk Mountain Lodge, dating from 1881, and the Old Town Hall and Union Congregational Church, both built in 1883, are reminders of the town's origin as a coal-mining camp.

At the north edge of town, the resort community of Mount Crested Butte has become the center of recreation in Gunnison National Forest. A walking tour map of the town's historical attractions is available from the Chamber of Commerce.

Crested Butte is north of Gunnison on Hwy 135.
