It would be good to have a photo of the town itself, not just the famous mill. Ntsimp (talk) 02:52, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Ghost town?[edit]

"There are books available on Crystal by one of its few residents."

If this place still has a few residents, can it truly be a ghost town? I guess it's a fine line, but I wonder. Perhaps there should be some clarification as to how many residents the place actually has. Paul 01:48, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Roads[edit]

No road providing access to Crystal was ever a Colorado State Highway -- I think someone was just misreading the maps. These are county roads at best. Paul 01:50, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

NOT a hydroelectric plant[edit]

Note that this was never a hydroelectric operation. Hydropower was used in order to compress air, which in turn was used for pneumatic power tools. See Crystal Mill. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.71.67.2 (talk) 18:02, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Electric power in Crystal[edit]

This would be an interesting addition to the history section of the article: did the electricity "grid" ever reach the town of Crystal? Do the remaining buildings currently have electric power? If not, when was the town "cut off from the grid"? 174.24.108.81 (talk) 17:03, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
