The first mining site in the Roaring Fork Valley, legend has it that prospectors discovered the Independence Gold Lode here on July 4, 1879. Today, Independence is an archaeological preserve, featuring interpretive stations that tell of the characters, enterprises, and structures that make it an integral part of area history. Located just below the continental Divide 16 miles east of Aspen on Highway 82, the ghost town is a “don’t-miss stop” on Independence Pass along the Top of the Rockies’ Scenic Byway.
