vaexplorer... Nice capturing from the old sign!

motopat... That's one way to do it. Then/now in the same image. Pausing at Antietam is on my short list.

GSPep... Great framing and alignment of the forty year difference. Excellent.

Along the way to Fairplay, in South Park, Colorado, the other day.

The very small community of Grant in the Platte Canyon was a train stop before the train stopped running in the 1930's. Here's one of the last trains to pass by...


U.S. 285 is now on the old train bed...


Well, Fairplay is reached on the other side of Kenosha Pass. Two old structures to find. The frontier Fairplay Presbyterian Church 120 years ago...


Now, it would have been great for comparison if there wasn't a new Fairplay High School built in the past year!


You want to spend the night in Fairplay 100 years ago? Here's your main option, the Fairplay Hotel...


And the options aren't that numerous today either, though there is now a new motel on the outskirts of town now. If you choose "history" as the lodging option, this place might keep you restless as you try to get your beauty rest. Supposedly, it is quite the haunted place!

H9, It appears some kind of paranormal team spent a couple of days at the hotel on a ghost hunt. Might have been what you saw... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cfSF4sy1zs
