A Painted View Ranch is nestled in one of the state’s most beautiful and unspoiled areas, the Wet Mountain Valley at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Custer County.

The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad extended a rail line into the Wet Mountain Valley in 1881 to take advantage of Silver Cliff’s mining boom. The line ended one mile west of Silver Cliff at a new depot, around which Wet Mountain Valley residents built Westcliffe, a true railroad town.
The mining camps and the railroad are now gone, but the town of Westcliffe survives along with All Aboard Westcliffe, an interpretive center and railroad museum filled with historic artifacts and memorabilia showcasing Custer County’s rich railroad history.
A former freight warehouse on Rosita Street serves as All Aboard Westcliffe’s headquarters and a community meeting space, while a 1901 engine house next door is its museum. Refurbished rail cars and a historic wagon sit outside, while a model of the Wet Mountain Valley, a model railroad, a variety of artifacts, a Google Earth collage and dozens of photos fill the engine house.
Explore Custer County’s intriguing railroad stories at All Aboard Westcliffe, open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Memorial Day through mid-September.
