After the DSP&P arrived in 1883, Keystone (1879, 9,250 feet) hummed as the railhead for the logging and mining towns of Argentine, Chihuahua, Montezuma, and Saints John (named for two saints, John the Baptist and John the Evangelist). After the railroad pulled out in 1937, it became a ghost. Resurrection came in 1970 when the Ralston Purina Corporation opened the Keystone Ski Area and Resort.
