Located a short distance off of I-25 about an hour south of Pueblo, Colorado sits the “town” of Ludlow, Colorado.

To find it turn down this gravel road and look for the run down buildings on the left. The area is best known for a 1914 massacre (see memorials for more info).

We visited during a great day. Worth a trip just for the photos.
