DUNTON HOT SPRINGS
History & Story
Dunton, Colorado, was a small-unincorporated settlement in Dolores County established in 1885, and it consisted of log structures stretching for about a mile along the West Dolores River, and it was abandoned in 1915. In 1994 the current owners bought Dunton and set about renovating the entire town, which took seven years.
