Complete Golden History Center
The Golden History Center is new and old at the same time. As far back as 1938, citizens began collecting, exhibiting, and preserving Golden artifacts. Jefferson County Commissioners, with the aid of the Works Progress Administration, were instrumental in creating this collection as the basis of a museum that has had several homes over the years. Since 1996 its home has been 923 10th Street (when it was known as the Golden Pioneer Museum).
Today’s Golden History Center is the starting place for exploring Golden’s unique history through exhibits, lectures, programs, and events. As is true with the best museums, it continues to evolve and mature.
We are constantly on the lookout for Golden stories and all variety of newfound Golden-related artifacts, and we also provide care for the 15,000+ items in our collection.
Drawing on the work of those who have come before us and those who share their passion and perspective for local history is what keeps us motivated. We couldn’t do it without you.
We are thankful for all of the community support we receive, and we are excited about the increased value that the Golden History Center is adding to the Golden community. Come grow with us!
