The town of Creede is still occupied.  However, the mining area North of Creede is abandoned.   Gold, Silver and Zinc were all mined in Creede after a rich discovery in 1889 by Nicholas J. Creede while he was panning a stream.   Although Silver was the dominate ore, Creede survives to this day with many mining structures remaining north of the town.   The town itself contains many original buildings and has become a popular tourist spot.  The mines and mills may be abandoned, but you will see other visitors as you explore the area.
