Early Golden City and the Quest for the Capital
When gold was discovered in 1859 in early Golden City, Colorado, the population of the Rockies exploded. Golden emerged as the best suited town to claim the mantle of leadership—which it did temporarily in 1862. What happened after was a messy, personal, and salacious battle to secure the permanent seat of power. Presented by Nathan Richie, Director at Golden History Museum & Park.
