"A scenic, historic town from out of the past"

When driving up I-70 I often take the time to stop in Silver Plume. This isn't a popular stop for tourists as there are no gas stations or restaurants (outside of a tea room), but what brings me here is the charm of the place. Every time I'm here, I feel as if I've been transported back 100+ years. Silver Plume started around the time of the gold rush in the late 1850s and many of the houses still standing here today were built in the late 1880s. There are charming homes with little white picket fences, and although it lies along I-70, there is really no noise from traffic. The most noise you'll get here is when walking near the river which runs through town. As with some older towns, there are buildings that should probably be torn down, and they can detract from the aesthetic appeal, but overall I find these interesting as well.

This small, quaint town would be a great place to call home, especially for anyone who enjoys the mountains and all the adventures they have to offer. It's close to great skiing, hiking, and the rest. The homes here go for a bit under state averages, but there really isn't any employment here either. The median household income is $31,426.
