West of Downtown

Golden

From 1862 to 1867, Golden was the capital of Colorado Territory and a center of railroad activity. Today, Golden is the county seat of Jefferson County. The major attraction and employer is the Adolph Coors Brewery. One of the nation's top earth science universities, the Colorado School of Mines, is located in Golden as is the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI). Golden is nestled at the base of the foothills and provides residents with a small town atmosphere only 15 miles west of downtown Denver.

Golden's main street has unique shops, galleries, fine restaurants, the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, the territorial capital building and the 1800 Astor House built as a boarding house for the early legislature. Other attractions include a Railroad Museum, Heritage Square, Boettcher mansion, Hiwan Homestead and the Buffalo Bill Museum atop Lookout Mountain.

Golden, a picturesque, foothill town is a popular choice for many relocating to the area. Town government desiring to limit growth of the town have placed a building moratorium on the building permits that can be obtained. By limiting new homes sales, the town maintains it's atmosphere. The scarcity of available homes has made home values go up, making Golden an expensive, never the less, nice place to live.
