Tungsten mine, Nederland, 1930

The town of Tungsten was finally eradicated when the Barker Dam was built below Nederland to boost water storage for the town of Boulder, Colorado, way down the canyon. The Eldora Branch of the Denver, Boulder and Western narrow gauge railroad was extended from Eldora down to Nederland to supply construction materials for the dam project.
