Miners have been working around the area of Battle Mountain since the late 1800s when the discovery of Gold at the Victor Mine helped establish the town of Victor, Colorado.

Just nine miles from Colorado's historic Cripple Creek, the town of Victor was once home to 18,000 residents. Today, Victor is home to around 400 residents. It is also home to the least expensive house on the market in July. Keep going to check out photos from Realtor.com, and for three reasons why we say go for it.

Welcome to Historic Victor, Colorado

Our first reason for giving the thumbs up is the setting. Victor is a beautiful and historic site in Colorado. The Victor mine and Cripple Creek mining area produced more than 21 million ounces of gold back in the day, and there are still mining projects going on in the area. If you are a history buff or intrigued by legends of Colorado mining, this is the perfect place to stake a claim.

The price tag on this one-bedroom ranch is only $20,000. The home has already been remodeled. Take it to the next level and flip this cute single-family home into a money maker.

The Living History of Victor

Reason #2...Victor is home to Gold Camp Adventures, the Lowell Thomas Museum, the Ag and Mining Museum, cemetery tours, the outdoor Victor Gem and Mineral show, and lots more. The downtown area still has an old-fashioned soda fountain so you can grab a cold drink or a creamy milkshake and relax and make your plans to start prospecting.

Get a Front Row Seat for Every Parade in Victor

Our final reason we say buy it is the location in town. Living on Victor Avenue means you will have a front-row seat for every 4th of July and Christmas Parade that moves through the town. You'll be close to all the action yet still just five miles from Cripple Creek and only about 45 miles from Colorado Springs.
