Dyersville was a mining town — now a ghost town — in Summit County, Colorado, United States. It was named after Methodist minister John Lewis Dyer.
Methodist minister and prospector John Lewis Dyer, better known as “Father” Dyer, built a cabin in a secluded location along the upper reaches of Indiana Creek in January 1881. He was soon joined in his seclusion by miners and merchants connected to the nearby Warrior’s Mark mine. The community named itself after its first resident, Father Dyer.
Nothing remains of the town except the roofless walls of a couple of log cabins.
