Golden history starts here
See 1800s cabins and a one-room school. Play with music and science. View real Golden history in our digital photos. With three sites, there is something for every visitor.
The Astor House was built way back in 1867. Until 45 years ago the stone building was a boarding house. It almost became a parking lot, but a vote saved it. The landmark is closed for a bit, but new fun is around the corner. Stay tuned and check the blog for updates.
What was it like for early ranchers and farmers in the area? Get a taste of tough pioneer life at Clear Creek History Park. View the old cabins, a flock of 20 chickens, the smithy’s shop, and a one-room school. It’s all just a block from downtown. And it’s always free to get in.
The Golden History Center is your starting place for a visit. Play around with local music and cool science. Take in a movie or two. View Coors pottery made right down the street. Check out photos from days gone by. Open six days per week, 10 – 4:30. Get in the door for only $3.
