Golden, Colorado

Established as a gold miners town, Golden, Colorado is a hidden gem located at the entrance to the Rocky Mountains. Locals and tourists alike flock to the city for beer, food, and all kinds of outdoor activities.

A small amount of gold discovered in Clear Creek attracted the area’s earliest settlers in the mid-19th century and Golden City quickly became an important supply stop for gold miners seeking their fortunes in the adjacent mountains. Farmers soon discovered the rich soil in the valley that is now home to the Coors complex, and Golden City further swelled as coal mining and clay extraction industries settled in the area, utilizing the region’s ample natural resources.

Golden, Colorado is home to the famous Coors Brewing Company and the Colorado Railroad Museum, with plenty of family-owned restaurants, nearby hiking trails and even a river that flows through the city. The Colorado School of Mines, which is well known to be one of the best engineering schools in the state, is located right in the heart of Golden.

Golden City became the capital of the federally recognized Colorado Territory in 1862, and the territorial legislature met from 1862 to 1867 in the building that is now home to the Old Capitol Grill restaurant. By the end of the 1860s, Golden City had been elected the seat of Jefferson County and the capital of the provisional Jefferson Territory.

Golden, Colorado now offers residents and visitors an abundance of recreational, cultural and culinary opportunities. Golden has 402 acres of open space and maintains 253 acres of parks right within the city itself.

Lookout Mountain is a foothill of the Rocky Mountains. The 7,377-foot peak is located in Lookout Mountain Park, 1.7 miles west of downtown Golden. It's an interesting drive up to the park

Known for its natural scenery, Lookout Mountain has played a major role in area recreation, transportation, water supply and telecommunications over the years. Its earliest known inhabitants were the Ute tribe of American Indians, who used the mountain as a lookout point for the surrounding region. Downtown Denver, only 12 miles to the east, can be seen clearly from the mountain.

The summit is also famous as the gravesite of William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody. The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, a facility owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, exists to preserve the memory of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. To this end, it maintains the Cody gravesite and related structures on Lookout Mountain Park, collects cares for and interprets artifacts associated with “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s life and times between 1846 and 1917, and records Cody’s ongoing influence on American culture. The museum overlooks beautiful Golden, Colorado.

With all that the city has to offer there is no question why tens of thousands of people choose to make Golden their home. Come live, work and play with us in our modern town with an old west flair!
