These stone structures appear to be the remains of historic labor camps. Occupied during the late 19th Century, they were used as temporary dwellings by immigrant workers completing railroad construction in Ten Mile Canyon.

The architecture of these buildings is unique. Native stone was dry laid or mortared with packed earth to form the walls. Roofs were constructed of log and brush. The interior was rough, with dirt floors and a hearth in the corner.

At one time over 50 structures existed in the canyon, housing 100 to 300 laborers. Many dwellings were destroyed or altered in recent years, due to increased development, such as highway construction.

Please respect Colorado's historical sites for the enjoyment of future generations. Do not remove or relocate any artifacts.
