In 1862, one year after gold was discovered in the area, Montgomery, Colorado had 150 cabins, five sawmills, three hotels and the largest dancehall in the region. In the late 1890s, after the gold had played out, the city of Colorado Springs bought the site to construct a reservoir. Flooding what remained, most of the town now sits beneath the lake.
