The Crystal Mill sits along the Crystal River in Colorado. It was built in 1892, and although it is now called a mill it was actually built as a powerhouse. The fast moving river would turn turbines for air compressors to run pneumatic drills for the nearby Sheep Mountain Mine. The mine closed in 1917 and the powerhouse was left abandoned.
The old building remains a popular landmark in Colorado attracting tourists and photographers to this remote place every year. It is in the mountains southwest of Aspen near the small town of Marble. The road to this scenic spot is a long, rocky and narrow requiring a four wheel drive vehicle or horse. You can see it on Google Maps HERE
