The state of Colorado is home to countless abandoned towns, often referred to as ghost towns or, in some cases, extinct towns. While these abandoned towns typically don't have any residents, much of the time there are homes, buildings, and other various items of all shapes and sizes that have been left behind.

One former town on Colorado’s eastern plains that is now classified as extinct is little more than a wide spot in the road today but was once known as Birmingham, Colorado.

Today, there is little left in what was once known as Birmingham with the exception of a few buildings and some curious sights on the side of some nearby roads.

It’s important never to attempt to visit any of these types of places as it’s often not only dangerous but can be considered trespassing and legal consequences may accompany unauthorized exploring.

What’s Left in the Extinct Colorado Town of Birmingham?

In case you’re not familiar, the extinct town of Birmingham, Colorado is located on the state’s eastern plains about halfway between Fort Collins and Sterling.

This area of Colorado is rather desolate as on a given day, you might drive past one or two homes currently occupied along with flat scenery that will have you questioning whether or not you’ve arrived in Kansas.

However, in Birmingham, there are numerous buildings still standing, some more than others, including farmhouses, barns, garages, and even some old horse stables. In addition, there are some curious spots nearby where makeshift barriers appear to have been made with things like old tires, a basketball hoop, and signs bearing “No Trespassing” are interestingly present.
