Buyer should check with Gunnison County in regards to what kind of use the property may be used for as well as what type of structures. Schofield was a small town at the top of the main pass from the Gunnison/Crested Butte area over to the Crystal/Marble/Redstone area. There is nothing left of the town. A mill was built in 1881 and at its height it had a hotel, restaurant, post office, store, carpenter, blacksmith, barber and daily mail service. By 1885 the ores played out and the town was no more. Today, the main attraction is Schofield pass (aka Devil's Punchbowl) which is only passable by bicycle, ATV or foot traffic.
